Beginning my journey with Roehl.

7/9/2015

Successfully obtained my permit today. Passed with an average score of 97% and I gotta say, I'm very happy with myself.

Waiting to hear back from the recruiter, who is on vacation so I had to call a different person, to get back to me with a definite start date.

Looking forward to starting class and will be studying al about pre-trip inspection for the next 2 weeks.

I highly recommend the High Road program offered here, it definitely helped me understand better and provided me with the practice I needed to pass the tests.

Hey on that physical did they ask a whole bunch of questions about sleep apnea? Im beginning to figure out that that seems to be a pretty big deal in the industry.

They gave me a questionnaire with some questions about if I currently suffer from it or any symptoms of it. They measure your neck and if it's above a certain size, then they'll recommend a sleep study. But since I don't have it or any symptoms he just signed off on it.

I'm going for my Permit test today myself, we might end up in class together.

Going to Phoenix as well? I look forward to meeting a fellow member.

Physical yesterday went great. Apart from noting I am overweight, which I knew, I am pretty healthy.

All that's left is to get my CDL permit and head to Phoenix.

Congratulations on the start date. I got a little excited about your date, as I also start school at Roehl on July 20th, but in Phoenix, AZ. Good luck to you!

Beginning my journey with Roehl.

Hey everyone, my name is Donald and I have just started my journey to becoming a driver. I am 22 years old and have never driven a semi before. I have driven trucks with trailers and mororhomes, but nothing this size or for a living. I have been researching options and opportunities for a few weeks now and thanks to this website and all of you guys posting, I made the decision to train with Roehl Transport out of Phoenix, AZ.

I have been studying non-stop for my CDL Permit and I take my physical tomorrow. I have an amazing recruiter working woty2me who has been prompt and very helpful in answering all my questions about working for Roehl. I opted for an OTR position in their Flatbed Division working 18 out 4 home. Starting pay seems great, for someone who has never done this before anyway.

I am looking forward to sharing my experience with everyone here. Updated will be slow until I actually get up to the terminal and start class.
