New to the trucking industry and need some guidance!

Hello all! 👋🏾 So I am brand spanking new to the Trucking/Transportation Industry. Before I get into this career I want to get all the information I can so that I have little to no surprises when I finally start my career. I know that less then ideal things will happen I just want to be prepared before It does. I’ve been researching a lot of start up companies and reading reviews on those companies and to be honest the main company that stood out to me was Roehl. Swift was the first company I talked to but something in me is telling me don’t do it. But who knows, that could be the company I end up with. I’m going through the hiring process with Roehl (I haven’t signed anything yet), but I kind of feel like Roehl is too good to be true. But nothing in me is telling me not to do the GYCDL with Roehl. I felt the same way when I got into a career selling Life Insurance. I paid quite a bit of money to get into it, I studied hard, passed the exam with a 92, got my license only to find out that I am not a salesmen. And I made absolutely NO MONEY. But that was 1000% my fault. I didn’t do my research. I feel that if I start with a company with the best possible training the money will come which is why the money isn’t my top priority. As long as I have enough to take care of my family I’m good with starting out with lower pay. My top priority is the training. I feel like whether I start with a starter company or go to a school I will just be taught enough to pass the CDL test. I just want to make sure I choose a company that has great training and won’t just kick me out the program if I don’t learn something right away. Roehl seems like they have a good training program and from what I hear they are very strict on safety. Which I like, because I am too. I think I read that they have inward facing cameras which I like as well. It’ll probably be weird at first, but it will come in handy if anything happens. I know that I’m probably just overthinking this, but I know that this won’t just affect me. It will affect my family as well. I just feel like I need some guidance before I get started. I will gladly except all the help I can get. If their’s another company I should look into feel free to let me know. Or if Roehl is a great company (or not) let me know. Thank you!

To anyone that works or worked for Roehl, how do/did you like it?

I am currently going through the hiring process for Roehl and I was wondering what your thoughts were on the Paid to get your CDL program. I’m not expecting to make a whole lot of money my first year. As long as I make enough for my family to live off of . I’m more interested in getting the best training possible. From what I heard they are very big on safety, which I like. My fear is that I’ll get kicked out of the program if I don’t get something right away. I’m new to this industry and I just want to make sure I make the right decision before I sign my name on the dotted line. I will gladly take all the help I can get. Thank you!
