Women Go the Distance with CRST
In the past few years, we've had more women join us than in any period before. And we love it. In fact, CRST has double the national average of women truck drivers. We have several women who have driven a million miles without incident and have been with us for over a decade, while many others are leading the way for women in trucking as trainers.
I didn't know if OTR was right
After talking to dozens of carrier recruiters, CRST Expedited really stood out as a place you could earn great money without having to wait years. Yes, OTR would be a challenge, but I knew I could get some serious miles behind me. Now, I own my truck and if it weren't for that experience, I'd probably still be carrier hopping.
We had no car, no experience
and nowhere to go.
Going into debt at a trade school was going to take years, and still wouldn't guarantee me a stable job, let alone a career I could count on. Being a truck driver provides me the flexibility and stability that I want. I hope to purchase my own truck in the future.
I wanted to spend more time
with my husband.
We got used to him being on the road for long stretches of time. Once I retired, I knew I wanted to spend more time with him, so I figured why not team up with him and travel the country? We've been to so many amazing places that I never thought we'd see together.
I always wanted to travel the country with my brother.
My brother Tom and I were working in the service industry with no time to take a real vacation. I told him I was considering being a truck driver and found out CRST has a company-sponsored training program. When we both finished, we asked to be teamed up. Now we're traveling the country. Best move ever.
