    Miss Pameee,,, stay as far away from crst as you can. I have had dealings with them in the past and as recent as two years ago working for them. I currently work at a school that they put their student drivers through and to say it mildly, in my opinion of course, they herd em through there like cattle at the packing plant. You typically have only 12 days to learn everything that you need to learn to get your cdl, and that is all they are interested in. The ones that can't absorb all the info in that short of time are sent packing. If need be i'll elaborate more on that in a pm , but I do believe I have a little insight into their training "regime" so if you want any more info, just let me know. But again, in my opinion, stay as far from them as you can. Hope this helps, God bless and good luck on your new career.

    IM currently leased on to crst as a trainer i came here for a break and honestly any trucking company u go to youll run into the same issues theres good and bad i only run 3500 to 4200 miles a week but thats my choice as far as schooling goes try to do it on your own the schools for crst suck they dont teach students enough and barely get and drive time before they get a trainer the students make .22 cents for the fist 6 mounths and 31 after that then after a year .33 team has its good and bad points for a new driver it may be good because youll have two people to brainstorm situations youll face but always remember in this industry you have to be dedicated ansvgive it your all dont complain and do what you say communicage everything with your dispatcher and do your best and youll do

    fine here but if you complain and dont want to work itll be ruff theres times youll sit but thats everywere

    I saw someone comment on a Youtube video with a CRST student doing some sort of backing and they said it stands for Crash and Roll Stunt Team. LOL!

    Ya'll aren't going to believe the crap I have been through today.. I may not be able to go with any company for quite a while. While my driving record is absolutely perfect, no tickets or infractions in my lifetime, I do have a recent insurance lapse suspension that shows up, my insurance lapsed in 2010 while I was out in california therefore my license was suspended, I didnt get back to florida to clear it up until last year, which I did the very first day I was in florida.

    What pisses me off is they will allow a friggin criminal, and lets face it crst does hire criminals and past drug addicts etc... but they wont hire someone with a perfect driving record for the past 30 years simply because I had a friggin administrative suspension on my record? Give me a freaking break... I am beyond angry at the moment, I am spittin fire!!

    From all the reviews on here and other sites CSRT is not the way you want to go anyways with there lawsuits and poor safety scores. Just start making phone calls to other places and tell them about the lapse and license issue back in 2010 I know someone will hire you. Best thing is be upfront about everything from the very start of the phone call, it always helps.

    I was upfront with it all, she even told me before she submits me over to their safety department for me to go online and purchase my full lifetime driving record, which I did and that is the only thing on it, a stupid insurance lapse... and she tells me they wont take me, i practically had to beg her to try anyway, she said I will hear back form her in the morning, I'm not holding my breath. for real this is ridiculous.
