Great OTR employer

I spent a few years as a company driver for CCC back in the 90's. After reading the few reviews on this site, it's great to see a company kept it's standards of the way they treat drivers & maintain equipment. The only reason I left Crete was that I secured a local job (and remain going on 19 years) with a pretty decent company in Chicago where I live.

Keep up the great work.

I am so thankful for a great asset manager that I have and for the operation crew that do a great job at getting me to places I want to take time off at. They bust their butt to get me there. Yes they might b a day early or late but they work together and get me where I want to b. Much love to them all. Keep up the great work.

I like the people that run the company and the people I work for directly my asset manager and my fleet manager. They always take care of our equipment make sure we are always up to date on our safety checks. They alway do their best to make sure drivers get home when they need to. They treat every driver fairly.
