No more worrying about paying the bills or putting food on the table. CRST has given me the dignity and purpose my life was lacking. Finally, I'm proud to tell my kids what I do for a living. It’s not always an easy job – but it’s an important one.”
It was the worst day of my life, and it’s also when I made the best decision of my life to stop banging my head against the wall and start over as a truck driver. I did CRST's training and had a job in my hands the day I graduated.
They are Nicolas, Martina and Sofia. When I come home, I'm proud that I can provide for them. I'm ahead of my bills because of CRST's generous pay and benefits. Now, I can put money away for all of our futures.
I've also paid off my mortgage. And my wife and I are thinking about becoming a team so we can retire sooner. Driving is a hard job, sure, but it's a stable provider. Even in tough times, we still get bills paid and earn. I didn't want to drive a taxi, and CRST was a far better choice for me.
I'd heard so many horror stories about going into debt over tuition and I certainly didn't have the money to pay for it myself. The decision to join CRST was one of the best I ever made. My first year really catapulted my driving career and now I mentor the next generation of drivers.
I was out 28 days with my trainer, who was great, and now I’m tackling co-driving with my new partner. It was a solid, sometimes scary learning experience, but I learned from each mistake and now I’m a better driver for it.”
