TruckingTruth's View On Roehl Transport So Far

Trucking Truth Logo

Roehl's hiring standards seem to be very comparable to most other trucking companies of its size. One thing to note is their additional stance against drug use. In addition to the required DOT drug screening, Roehl uses an additional hair follicle test enabling them to retrieve additional history on any illicit drug use.

Roehl's Military Apprenticeship Honor Program

The Roehl Honor Program is an apprenticeship program specifically for military/ex-military members. The program is available to those honorably discharged or reservists still serving.

The 2-year program allows veterans to also draw on their GI Bill benefits while working for Roehl. Roehl also provides CDL training.
