Malone Inc Reviews (From Former Cedar Rapids Employee)
I loved working for CRST Malone. its a great company to be with in the trucking industry for the simple reason you have 95% of the control of your own destiny. Basically you are your own boss!
Your pay is based loads, and depending on location and distance can be great pay for time. Office staff and freight brokers are very supportive and overall a great flatbed trucking company to work with…
Drivers with previous experience must have a minimum of six months on the road over the past 36 months in “flatbed” style rigs. If you have more than 3 moving violations during that same period, you will not be hired. Same for driving under the influence- you cannot get hired if you have been arrested for DUI or DWI in the last 3 years.
If you are a new driver, you will want to start out in a more traditional class B driving job. There are a variety of company paid training programs available from the major trucking companies. You can also practice online with companies like Crist CDL (http://www.cristcdl.net).
What about hiring felons? This is a common question and CRST will hire felons so long as the felony has not been during the past 10 years.
The standard orientation period for new drivers is 4 days. During that time, you will go through load securement training along with coil certification. CRST International will also pay orientation stipend, pay-per-unit leased on after you are sent out on your first official load.
