C.R. England Sucks NEW
by: pissed momma!!!

#2 Finally I decided to go ahead a just get my own damn ticket.If C.R England is such a family man than he should give me my damn money back..His team shouldn't tell so many lies..to trick people to come so far for their homes.I guess you live and learn right?I will find a better company to go with.I WILL ALSO DO MY REVIEWS..So tired.

#1....C.R England was a joke from the beginning.Well lets start from the beginning.I started call in when I was about 2 hours away from them for a shuttle to pick me up which they didn't show..I was luck I had a friend who lived in town who picked me up took me to the store and to my room.Once there I find out I have been sent to the wrong place that I wasn't suppose to go to this shit hole till phase 1.My recruiter also said I would have WiFi so I could keep in touch with my 8 children and husband.But that wasn't true either you only get WiFi once you are hired on with their company.Whats that shit?Thee last I looked Almost offers FREE WiFi..Once they get you there you are pretty much on your own.My roommate had been put out by her trainer while she was just 3 days away from having her 30 days...She laughed at me when I was talking about going home at the end of my 17 days.My requiter told me C.R England wad a family company (bullshit)I just decide for how shitty things were already going I would just go home and find another company to go with.My recruiter call me Monday morning asking what was wrong why didn't I show up for school so I explained everything that was bothering me and told him I just wanted to go home..He said I at least had to go to the school so I could be put in the computer so he could get me my bus ticket..I went..did what I was told called him back to tell him I was in the computer.HIS BITCH ASS has not returned any of my 8 calls.

No pay or home time for three then left stranded at a truck stop. The England family needs to be lined up and each of them shot in the head for all the people they have screwed.

I am or have been a lease operator with England. I will admit at first it was tough. But I did my dues and got on a dedicated route that put me home on route and made being a leaser profitable. If you want to make 5,000 dollars clear a week you are in the wrong buisness. I was averaging 2300 - 2500 per week after expenses. You make it what it is. OTR is for some and for some it is overwhelming. If you have any problems start out as a company driver and hang out with the independents that are happy. Bottom line...if a criowd becomes unruly, everyone in that crowd becomes unruly...but if the crowd is peaceful then all are peaceful;. Many will condem England but many will praise it. Do not let negative talk destroy your dream.

It is a company that does not get the drivers home when they promise home time,they do not want anything but teams and ops that will do teams.

there is better company's out there if you are married or have children I would advise you not to go with them it will destroy your marriage and you wont have much time with your kids.I know for a fact my husband drives for them. they suck

Take it with a grain...and grin CR England
by: Ben There

All Reefer companies have a produce mentality,it is a throwback to the days of less dependable refrigeration,etc.You got the load there as fast as humanly possible and faster to diminish the chance of spoilage.I personally hauled a hell of a lot of produce and know.That said a 'green driver'ain't gonna be hauling strawberries,but you will haul frozen and controlled temp.loads.

Punctuality,and on time delivery is the key here!Refusing loads throws dispatch in a turmoil they are thinking two steps ahead[if they are on the ball]a refused load means you ain't going to be where you need to be to haul the following load!THIS IS THE PROGRAM IN THE REEFER WORLD!Many "green drivers"don't understand these concepts,Never,Never,Never sign a Lease Purchase Contract!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You want to be a company driver for years! Don't listen to what a 'bounty hunter' says.Stay a company driver and watch the leasers go broke.CR England is the largest Reefer outfit so a hell of a lot of people who didn't follow the above concepts are blogging and crying about them.

The truth is they are no worse than any reefer outfit and much better than most.
