    Planning on going through the CR England program but questioning the decision based on the volume of negative postings and reviews.
    I take forum postings with a grain of salt but definitely include forum reviews as part of the due diligence process.
    I figure more people post after a bad experience then a positive one but there seem to be predominantly negatives when it comes to CR England.
    I was hoping to source a good method of obtaining a CDL with minimum out of pocket. A year of commitment is not a problem so long as it’s possible to make a reasonable wage during that time.

    I Would be going to Utah for training
    Just apprehensive as to putting myself in a #### situation and regretting making the commitment especially after reading some reviews beforehand.

    my question is for some drivers out there who have been through this.
    What would you do? I see lots of suggestions not to go with CRE.
    If not CRE then what?
    What are some good alternatives to going with CRE?

    Where do u live? Uo in utah u can go to prime, and pride is also up there. Both of those are 100 times better than cringlend..... Good for u to do some due dillegence on companies, most guys just sign the dotted line then complain when they get screwed. ... @Chinatown can help ya get started with some companies that will give u the training u need and keep u out of the cr england misery

    10-4 i live in arizona as well. U can go thru swifts program , they will put u thru school and get u a truck . their phx facility is real nice since its their corporate head quarters. Schnieder will also take you out of phoenix as well but u would have to go to an outside school

    CRE is got to be the worst of the Big 3 bottom feeders. CR England, CRST and Werner with Swift as an honorable mention .

    Stay here in town and get your CDL,
    Why would you go out of state to obtain this, especially at a bottom feeder like CRE?

    Agree with all the above posts. Swift is a better choice.
    Prime Inc. also trains in Salt Lake City.
    How close are you to Phoenix or Tucson?
