Please tell us more, good or bad. Trying to decide myself who to go to work for. Have offers from Shaffer & Crete, CT (Coastal Transport in AL), CRST, Watkins Shepard, MCT, Roehl, Interstate, Werner, McElroy, & H.O.Wolding.
LOL you must be joking.I drove for CRST for about 7 years. They trained me.
I really have nothing bad to say about them. If they had a solo company division I never would have left them. Mallone is solo flatbed, owner operators. They dont like admitting they work for CRST, but from what I have seen and heard, flatbed drivers dont care much for van drivers anyway.
They have a great safety dept and I never was pushed beyond what I was comfortable with, the shops are only OK since they contract out major repairs and only do basic things in their shops. They do keep their equiptment in good shape.
Dispatch kept us moving, Id be out for 1 month and take a week off with hometime never being a problem. Drivers facilities are good.
I just got tired of driving teams.
I know next to nothing about Mallone. From what I understand, they really have nothing to do with CRST Van Expedited. I was a company driver.LOL you must be joking.
I leased a truck on with them (CRST Malone Flatbed) and did more deadhead to get the next load. I pulled the truck after 3 weeks.
They told me average pay to truck was going to be $1.77+fsc (NOT). after pulling 3 or 4 loads and figured out the truck pay it came out to be around $1.35 (that was w/fsc). With all the deadhead and sitting thats what it came out to. So needless to say pulled truck and put back under my own authority. CRST is a JOKE and I state that as a FACT.
We know a couple of them who could'nt make it with them. Way tooo much sitting.Also the equipment may be good on the Van side BUT flatbed/tanker company drivers get the Van leftovers that are trashed out and break down a lot.
They love short changing company driver pay checks, it's hard to get ahold of the payroll dept to correct errors. Shorted on miles.
The company flatbedders and tankers do get cell phones, get to come home on weekends or certain days out of the week.
The least BS I have noticed is pulling tanker on a dedicated run as a company driver, next to that would be a company driver for flatbed.
Holiday pay is ok as well for company flatbed/tanker drivers, 1 week paid vacation each full year you work there up to so many years.
