CFI

This was last week. This is not typical. I have a great relationship with my fleet manager and he knows he can count on me. I also don't complain. You must prove yourself in this industry.

I started my recaps during this trip. The following week, getting back home was 3326 miles on recaps. Got home today.

That was a nice week, what’s your home time policy? Is it standard 3 weeks out 3 days home?

Who is your recruiter? We have a terminal in CA and a few drop yards. I just ran from NC to CA and CA to GA.

Oh wow, these are awesome trips! My recruiter is Josie Sanchez

Your recruiter came from Transport America. They didn't run the lower 48 and they have different camera systems.

Well I’m ok with a camera as long as they run all 48. Do you know if there is still a 10K sign-on bonus? What speed are your trucks set at?

Driver facing cams have power to them but not set to record. It was a package deal. They will use the driver facing cam as an option instead of firing someone who messes up bad. You will know ahead of time.

I do not believe they will require a sleep study. Your DOT examiner should have handled that if needed.

I jump on here whenever I have a few.

Good luck. We have plenty of people to help you in your journey with us.

Welcome to the family.

Thank you Scott! So my recruiter said there is only a road facing camera inside and she also asked me to send her my long-form physical which I already did. It was done here in Roehl just a month ago and it is good for two years. I also found a post of yours where a few years ago you were saying you’ve been in so many states with CFI, do they still run all 48?? Well, 47, actually, cause that same recruiter said you guys don’t go to California, but I’m totally fine with that

If your BMI is over a certain limit, you will no doubt be required to do a sleep study.

Well, neither WE, nor Roehl made me do it.

So I see that CFI has very good reviews and rating and I’ve also heard that they run all 48 and don’t put inward facing cameras in their trucks. Can somebody confirm this? They just scheduled me for the orientation. How many miles can I expect there doing dry van solo? Are they sending obese people for the sleep study?

Leo;

Wish you well in your ventures! Ask to speak to Susie, re: the CPAP and otherwise. She's kinda a 'higher up' but if she'll take your call, you'll get info!

Good luck again;

Thank you Anne!

You didn't ask your recruiter these questions before accepting a date to begin orientation?

I don’t trust recruiters anymore, they’re all liars

Question to Roehl drivers/trainers

What division are you in?? A friend of mine ran curtainside for years and spent more time on the west coast than anywhere else. They have a flatbed terminal in Fontana Ca.

I’m a Dry Van National, what division or fleet should I move in to so I can do west coast more?? 🤔

Question to Roehl drivers/trainers

Alright people, thank y’all for your help first. Here’s some news/replies to your posts:

1. I no longer drive around Chicagoland.

2. I no longer feel I need to give Roehl a 1-star review on Google (Western Express got 4 stars from me just in case you’re wondering).

3. Western Express dry van solo drivers do not go west of Mississippi River anymore. The only way to do all 48 in Western Express now is either to be a trainer, or a flatbed driver.

4. I’m still mad Roehl recruiter Nicole lied to me about driving in all 48. You DO NOT instruct your recruiters to lie to applicants about where you drive!! I would probably not even apply if I knew they basically do the same area as Western Express does. It was one of the main reasons I left Western Express! I recently got a new FM because my previous one was fired. So we talked a bit and she told me they mostly do Midwest and Northeast, but I will get trips to TX, FL and other Southern states occasionally.

5. I mark the states I drive in with Roehl on the blank U.S. map. So far my map doesn’t look good at all. But let’s get back to it in a few weeks and see.

6. I don’t remember I signed any paperwork where I would agree with the camera facing inward in my truck. They say I can request to remove it in a few months, but I already hate it. I don’t feel comfortable at all being watched 24/7 while driving, singing, scratching, picking my nose, eating, drinking etc.

7. Anyway.. I suggest renaming this thread to just ‘Roehl’ so other people can get some useful information from it. Because there are some pros, too! Like good (one of the best actually) hometime, and very nice customers. No trashy companies for p/u or delivery. Very responsive and helpful dispatchers.

I will keep this thread updated.
