You can also visit their website for a complete rundown of Roehl's payscale.
For starters, drivers receive a $600 hire bonus upon completion of the Roehl CDL training program. Mileage pay amounts depend on your specific division, home time plan, and regional area of operation.
Drivers are also paid practical mileage pay, which generally equates to 5% more paid miles compared to other companies.
New drivers will receive a pay increase every three months for the first year, then receive increases each year thereafter.
Roehl offers two separate health insurance plans, dental, vision, and life insurance policies. Visit Roehl's website for more details about their insurance plans
Insurance plans vary depending on individual needs and chosen plans (many plans are offered at many different cost structures). You can also view a detailed breakdown of insurance costs.
90 days after official hire (CDL training does not count toward the 90 day waiting period).
Vacation pay = 1.5% of previous year's W2 wages/week.
Holiday pay (after 1 year) 6 days/year; paid at \$60/day. Eligibility for Holiday pay on HOMEtime PLUS Fleets varies by fleet and work schedule.
Pay and benefits appear to be about average for companies of its size. While the starting pay directly after training is a bit lower than average, you will receive pay increases every 3 months -- much more frequent than most other companies. Within 6 months to 1 year, the pay is competitive. So don't focus on the initial starting pay. It will increase quickly.
While not guaranteed, many drivers are able to move into a regional or dedicated position immediately after training. This depends entirely on the demand for any given area. Most drivers run the OTR division for at least a few months.
Yes, NYC load assignments are paid at an additional \$75.00. NYC freight is rare, but drivers may be required to run NYC / Long Island at anytime.
Yes, company drivers are forced dispatched to ensure maximum mileage and profitability.
Roehl offers many different flexable home time packages and can depend on the fleet a driver is on.
80% of the time, regional fleet drivers are typically home 34 to 48 hours in a seven-day period. Western Regional fleet drivers are typically home every 10 or 11 days.
Exclusively from Roehl, our 7-On/7-Off Fleet drivers drive seven days and then they are home for seven days at a time. If you choose a 7-On/7-Off Fleet, you’ll have 26 weeks a year off. You must be fully rested prior to dispatch. Space in the 7-On/7-Off Fleets may be limited in some areas of the country.
Getting more miles is a key feature of our 7/4-7/3 Fleets. When you join a 7/4-7/3 Fleet, you’ll drive seven days, then be home four days, then you’ll drive seven days followed by three days of home time. That’s an average of 120 days off and mileage goals between 95,000 and 105,000 per year. You must be fully rested prior to dispatch, and space in the 7/4–7/3 Fleets may be limited in some areas of the country.
Roehl’s 14/7 Fleets are unique options that combine the mileage goals of a 7/4-7/3 Fleet (between 95,000 and 105,000 per year) with the extended home time of a 7/7 Fleet. You’ll drive fourteen days and then be home seven days. Space in our 14/7 Fleets is available in limited areas, and you must be fully rested prior to dispatch.
No pets are allowed.
Drivers may have one rider who is either a spouse or a related child of theirs 10 years of age or older. All riders must be approved by Roehl and insurance documents / fees must be paid yearly.
Roehl is incredibly flexible when it comes to home time, regional, dedicated, and local driving opportunities. Most drivers transition from OTR to a more local type of position, although many do choose to remain OTR as that's what they enjoy.
If you're interested in the more liberal home time policy such as 14 on 7 off, you will need to reside within close range of a Roehl terminal and you will slip seat trucks (meaning each time you go out, you'll be issued a different truck). The closer you reside to a terminal, the more custom fit they can make your home time.
The rider policy is fairly strict as only a related spouse or related child can ride with you (10yrs or older), and there are no pets allowed on any company equipment.
A leasing and Lease-To-Own program is available for those who choose to run as an independent contractor, but drivers are not pressured to to join the independent contractor program.
Roehl offers many different positions including local, dedicated, regional, flatbed, reefer, dry-van, and curtainside positions. To see which divisions are offered in your specific area, enter your zip code on Roehl's find your fleet page.
