You're set up to leave but know nothing about the company? Are you aware of the contract? The teaming?

Yes I am aware of the 8 month contract and that I will have a co driver as well I'm just wondering if it will be worth it in the end the plus side is that I'll have my license with I have been wanting the chance to obtain for quite sometime now and the experience but I have also heard of people only making $200 weekly and that's not near what they promise

Honestly they can't promise anything, and you can't believe everything you've read online. You can be successful at any legitimate company. It will depend on you and ability to adapt and overcome in the industry. The reason I asked if you knew what to expect is because a lot of people go in blind. I researched for months before landing with Maverick. There have been several post here about crst and their contract. Would hate to see you in here in a month or 2 asking how to get out of paying them because you decided to leave. There is info regarding crst here in TT. Use the search bar.

I worked for them for 13 months. I had no problems at all with the company. I only left because I wanted a more physically challenging job and I wanted to run solo. I went to riverside not cedar rapids so I can't tell you about it. I honestly made between $600- $850 a week. Only time I saw a $300 check was when I stayed on home time an extra day. My PERSONAL experience is that they are a very good starter company.
