Here is some information from our C.R. England Company Review. This is part of the Trucking Truth Trucking Company Reviews. Look for tings like this in the three-bar menu at the top left of this page.

Hey David, that's great, but it doesn't give us much to go on. Can you elaborate on what it is about them that attracts you? I've heard people say things like, "I like their logo," or, "Their recruiter was really encouraging me to sign up right away." Of course neither of those are good reasons to start with a certain company.

You'll probably be pulling a refrigerated trailer for C.R. England. Is that something you've thought about? You will be required to do some team driving with them at first. Are you prepared for that? Have you even considered what it might be like to live in a space the size of a large closet with a complete stranger for weeks at a time?

You're not even ready to start now because you have other commitments. Take the time to seek out information here with us. There's a lot of great trucking companies that will be willing to give you a shot. You've got time to look and learn. That's what you should focus on right now.

Old School, would you happen to know if Schneider does that same sorta team driving gig like CR England for new people? I just absolutely hate having roommates with a passion and more so in such tight quarters as a sleeper berth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sleeper Berth:

The portion of the tractor behind the seats which acts as the "living space" for the driver. It generally contains a bed (or bunk beds), cabinets, lights, temperature control knobs, and 12 volt plugs for power.

No sir. Schneider has a unique training program. It's much more abbreviated than the others. It's actually a very good program. It's concentrated and concise, but if they feel you aren't catching on, they will provide additional training for you. We have several Schneider drivers in here. Hopefully they can give you a heads up about their experience.

You will be teamed up with a driver trainer for a few weeks on the road while you learn the basic minimum skills.

Thanx, sir, I somehow have this "warm-and-fuzzee" feeling about the Schneider corporation. their "Career Paths" program with advertised commitment to switch seasoned drivers over to non-driving positions within the firm seems 2 give me good vibes. Schneider National doesn't seem like an outfit that will have their drivers drive until they die of old age ; these are rumors I've been picking up from one or more other truck forum sites :-)

Be careful what you believe. I know drivers in their eighties. Nobody is forcing them to drive. They have a passion for this job, and they are thrilled to he at it every day.

You'll find many of these companies have former drivers in office positions. Many of Swift's dispatchers are former drivers. I work for Knight and I've met a good number of people who are in middle level management positions who were former drivers.

Dispatcher:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
