If you want to drive for the largest trucking fleet of team drivers in the industry, then what better place to start than CRST Trucking?
Truck driving isn’t an easy job and it’s not for everybody, but it’s rewarding, satisfying, and well-paying work for the right people. Truck drivers do important work: they transport industrial and commercial goods over long distances, to and from factories, distribution centers, and stores.
The importance of truck drivers in society is often overlooked.
An old saying, “If you bought it, a truck brought it” clearly brings home how valuable their work is. If not for truck drivers, raw materials wouldn’t get to factories, and finished goods would never find their way to the shelves. Truck drivers are the heart of industrialized society.
Learning the ropes of big rig truck driving isn’t easy, but CRST helps hundreds of aspiring truck drivers get their break in the industry by sponsoring them in getting their CDL A licenses.
Although CRST does not have its own educational facilities, CRST has partnered with about 30 certified truck driving schools across the country in order to provide successful applicants with 2-4 week driving classes.
CRST Hires The Best OTR Drivers
CRST Trucking accepts all kinds of applicants: fresh graduates of certified truck driving schools, owner-operator truck drivers, and practicing truck drivers who wish to train a friend or loved one. Truck drivers who want to teach what they know are also welcome at CRST. Applicants with no experience are encouraged to enroll, as well. CRST welcomes applicants who need training in order to obtain their CDL Class A licenses.
Unlike with other kinds of employment, credit scores will have no bearing on whether or not an applicant is taken on by the CRST company. CRST chooses applicants based on things that matter in truck driving: driving, work, and criminal history.
CRST will cover tuition fees for driving classes in return for an eight month employment contract with CRST Expedited. After a student earns his or her license, he or she gets to gain experience by working in a team. Working with a partner is advantageous in many ways: two drivers can make more money together than if either was driving alone, and drives will always have someone to help them out with planning trips, mapping routes, and sharing the work.
CRST Expedited boasts the largest fleet of truck drivers in the industry. Truck drivers with CRST Expedited have the opportunity to earn more money than many truck drivers with other trucking companies. CRST Expedited runs the longest average length per haul and the most miles per tractor per week per industry. CRST is a family-owned company and understands the need to see loved ones on a regular basis. Because of this, CRST Expedited guarantees one day off for every ten days spent on the road. Lead drivers can earn up to $.49 a mile, while co-drivers can earn up to $.43. Apart from the competitive pay package, CRST Expedited provides an exceptional benefits package that includes twice-weekly paydays, paid vacations, affordable life, medical, and dental insurance, company-sponsored training and refresher courses, a company-matching 401k plan, and more opportunity for career growth within the CRST family.
In addition, CRST’s rewards program gives students and employees the opportunity to earn more money by referring would-be truck drivers. They also offer up to $2500 sign-on bonus for a limited time. What better time to start your truck driving career than now?
