Child visitation every other week?

So I just recently got visitation to see my daughter every other week, I'd like to become a truck driver. Any chances a company would work with me to where I get two days off every other weekend?

Just wondering. Are you going to roehl for flatbed? If so, check out maverick. My year here is almost complete. I live near Anderson off 85. We got lots of stuff out in SC so they may be a good fit for you.

id like to do dry van but whatever they are hiring for!

1,200 miles to my terminal.

Proximity to a terminal is irrelevant if you are an over the road driver. What is important is that you live in their "hiring area." That just means they deliver freight in your state - that is how they route you home for some time off. They will assign you a load that gets you near your home, then you drive the truck home.

Thank you for the information, appreciate it.

Waiting period for pet?

Hello, so I want to become a trucker and I am a pet lover and want to also be with me pet 24/7 - so win win. And here are Trucking companies that allow dogs , but is there a waiting period for getting the dog in your rig ? I understand there are deposits and so on, and is there anything that can disqualify you from having a pet with you?

Roehl's pets application

Salutations people of the internet! I have only one thing in this world, and that is my dog, Boscoe. I've done a bit of research and Roehl has a pet policy in place where you much apply and be accepted before being able to bring your pet. Just wondering if any Roehl drivers have had any conflicts with this application or if it has been smooth sailing.

Questions and concerns

Salutations people of Truckingtruth.com! I am very interested in become a driver for Roehl, the only issue is I live 215miles away from the closest terminal located in GA. However, I do live near a drop yard just a few 40 miles away from my house. Does anyone know if that will effect the decision of them hiring me or not?

Also, will companies keep me in the same truck instead of switching off every few weeks etc. and would I have to install the stuff id need/want like a mini mini fridge.
