    I am pretty sure I am the only person in the world that enjoyed my time at England. I started at Stevens Transport where I got my CDL in 2010 with Corporal Clegg (member on here). I ended up not finishing the training because the doctor put me on medical stop for a ######## reason. I left. I ended up going to England June of 2011 and drove for them about a year before I got sick and couldn't drive anymore. I was on a dedicated account running from Bradford PA to Big Island VA. I was making .34cpm. I did an average of 2 runs per week and was off most weekends. I then decided I wanted something more and ended up on the Kraft Dedicated account. Again I was making .34 cpm. I had a good relationship with my DM and he never yelled or anything when stuff went wrong. He always had my back. I drove a Blue Freightliner Cascadia (58776) and it was fully loaded. Even had Sirius XM installed and WORKING!!! I never said anything about that lol. Anyways if I could go back to driving I would go back to England. Most people on here probably will bad mouth me for saying that but it is true. They worked for me. Stevens did not.

    I was a company driver. I would not lease from England, but I would be more than happy to drive again as a company man.

    Glad you enjoyed your time there. How the heck did you live on a gross of $540/wk on the PA/VA run?

    I was off most weekends and home. So it was worth it, but I got sick of running PA/VA I went to Kraft Dedicated. I was essentially 48 state OTR at that point. Being single also helped, and not having to pay rent ( I couch surfed on hometime ) made it an ok deal. I ended up running team my last few months at England and thouroughly enjoyed it. My co-driver also was ex Stevens so we were a good match.

    Dedicated is alot different then OTR.At least you knew what you would be making every week,the routes,where you're going ect.Think the majority that hate CRENGLAND were otr drivers.
