Experienced drivers are the bread and butter of CRST’s success, and we make sure to honor that with opportunities suited to your experience level. We don’t play around with sign-on bonuses, if you have what it takes, you can expect to collect your bonus in full within 12 months, guaranteed. Pair that with our reputation as the nation’s largest over-the-road team carrier, and understand why truckers with the most miles under their belt choose us as a career destination. In terms of pay, benefits, home time, and reliable freight, our team package is unbeatable.
We’ll start you off with a four-day driver orientation program at one of our major full-service terminals in Cedar Rapids, IA, Oklahoma City, OK, or Riverside, CA. You’ll learn our policies and procedures inside and out, then prove your knowledge and suitability via written tests, physical tests, and a road test. And you’ll meet some of the staff that will be critical to your career success. Once your orientation is complete, you’ll hit the ground running with a co-driver or lead driver to solidify your transition to the CRST team. You’ll have the support you need to take on any challenge the road throws your way. We believe that it’s in everyone’s best interest to get you earning as soon as possible.
What to expect
If you’re part of an experienced, pre-made driving team, look no further, our $1,500 sign-on bonus says it all. If you’re looking to get into team driving, we can also accommodate you by matching you with a co-driver in your area. And if you’re inclined, you can earn more by helping new truck school graduates as a lead driver/trainer. No matter your specialty, we’ve got room for your veteran talents in our ranks. Are you an experienced driver with a spouse, relative, or friend interested in driving? Through our Train Your Partner program, CRST will sponsor their CDL training and then hand them off to you for road training in one of our trucks. It’s a win-win situation: you get a reliable partner, and they fast-track their certification. You’ve got the experience, we’ve got superior runs, let’s work together.
