My student driver landed himself in hot water. Almost fired!

I didn't like the fact that you ratted him out to your DM. Read the kid the riot act if you want but keep it in house. No need to get anyone else involved.

Broke Newbie

Call a Roehl recruiter. Don't read the review things have changed. They pay you, feed you, house you, you in exchange drive 120 k miles for them.

Short an sweet. No car needed. The company van picks you up in the morning then takes you home at night. The company provides meals or coupons for food. Both Marshfield & Appleton hotels are within walking distance of shopping, groceries and restaurants. I just walked to the Target, it also sells groceries. I'd say 80% of the guys don't have cars but 100% of the guys ride in the van.

Roehl trainee starting 7/6/2015

Fun day! My group transferred over from Marshfield to begin our second week. I'll just say that there are major differences between Marshfield and Fox Valley. Go Team Roehl! #safetyfirst

Yes and a simple physical physical. Picking up 40# x 3, crouching for 20 seconds, pulling & pushing and flatbedders must climb a ladder and walk on a balance beam then lift a heavy tarp. Van guys had it easy. Just remember as soon as you pass the drug test you're an employee of the company with full pay. Not a student at a school, you be making jack, Jack!

Things are great. Fast paced & exciting. Everything my recruiter Kim told me has taken place. 2 words of advice. They like to make it fun here but it's serious business. This is not a school, you are an employee and expected to put in the necessary work Secondly, start studying the PTI (pre trip inspection) it will take a lot of pressure off you. You'll understand when you get here. I'm being transferred over to Fox Valley. It's all good just to hard to explain, something about instructor availability. #safetyfirst

First night in Marshfield Wisconsin. I start 7am sharp in the driver training program. I'll do my best to keep y'all up to speed. First things first. I have no roommate in the company motel! Secondly, because of the upcoming holiday I'll do my 1st week in Marshfield and the next 3 weeks @ Fox Valley Technical in Appleton Wisconsin. That's it for now. #safetyfirst
