Wade please let us know what the recruiter says about CRST and teaming. I have seen CRST daycabs in flatbed service; but never in dryvan.

Wade setting boundaries:

If this company has a clause where i can not drive for anyone but them im out.

CRST wants a return on their investment; thus you are required to drive for them a minimum time (12 months) in order to meet your training obligation. Otherwise they will want you to pay all or a portion of the obligation. Every company offering Paid CDL Training Programs has a minimum obligation. Fact is; we recommend a rookie driver commit to their first company at least 1 year.

...that’s only $770.00, I’m out.

As a rookie; you are being paid to learn. You can expect to make about 40-50k your first year. That’s pretty much anywhere. 2200 miles? That’s a rather low number; 2800 is a reasonable goal.

You still out?

Good luck!

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Dryvan:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

Wade;

Look at some posts from our own TT'er, StevoReno . . . Stevo Reno on TT .

As far as CRST's non compete clause; yes they have one, and are VERY strict in enforcing such. I don't think it IS unreasonable, however, for the reasons that G'Town stated above. It's all ROI . Life is all ROI, actually!

I know nothing about their pay, but I recall Stevo posted a BUNCH of their pay scales & stubs; you'll have to peruse! Stevo 'DID' work for a division of CRST called Gardner for a while; he now drives for New Legends, I believe. He had to do 'team' time with CRST before the Gardner position came available. Things 'may' have changed; as G'Town asks, please let us know!

Best wishes,

~ Anne ~

Ok I'm back after a week out. Fyi i talked Audrey from Crst she would not give me info on how much i was going to make at crst for solo or teams after 5 mins of talking to her. I told her to pull my application. I don't have time for a company that will not give how much I'm going to make up front before orientation. I'm out . Took home 1900 cash this week as a new driver. Believe it or not new driver can make good money with less then 3 months driving.
