New career with CRST Van Expedited

I worked for them for about 5 months. I will say this. Your co-driver will make or break your experience. I went through 3 in about 3 months (other two months were spent training) each one of my co’s were horrible. One said I was a unsafe driver after I asked several times to drive days instead of nights. One would literally get in my face and force me to lend him money and the last one would constantly call our DM and curse her out because we would occasionally have to do city work. (Like less then 2 hours worth of city work) then he just quit in he middle of nowhere AZ and causing me to miss thanksgiving.

Moral of the story is to be super picky about who you choose to drive with. At the end of the day. They will take over driving for 12 hours and your life will be in there hands. If I were in your shoes first question I ask a potential co is how much experience do you have? You want at the very least 8 months. And keep it real with them. Hey I have difficulty with this or that or backing... CRST doesn’t take backing accidents lightly. Not only should get out and look. You have another set of eyes 5 feet behind you. For the most part they are a good company. I would request Alex as a Dm she is very sweet and will look out for you.

Western Express flatbed

Hi everyone, new to this forum and was wondering if I can get more info on the flatbed side of western express? I am more curious on length of haul and areas of pickup and drop off. I hate driving the northeast so I would like to stay clear of that if possible. I am new to flatbed work, but have about 11 months of otr experience. Most of it with CRST. I am use to driving the Midwest and actually love that area. Not so much the east coast. Anyway thanks in advance!
