Sometimes I really don't know how we do it, someone's watching over us. We're still plugging along helping truck drivers when they find themselves in bad situations and need a leg up.
6 drivers stranded today, working on the last 2 right now. 50% of them were from CRST. Seems their recruiters are bringing in drivers without checking them out fully that they meet their requirements. Driver had a felony almost 10 years ago, no jail time, told the recruiter but the recruiter claims he didn't tel... Continue reading ...
