Thanks

I will be glad to! Like I say, I won’t start training until May, but I’ll be glad to help. I will say this, I like the idea of a smaller company.

Roehl

Hey guys, acquired my CDL learners permit yesterday. I have a question about Roehl if anyone can help. Can a new driver choose the 7 on 7 off or is this just for the more experienced drivers? I know money would not be as good but not my concern at this point. Thanks

Well put G-Town and yes Pj I see we can’t have our cake and eat it too, at least not early in a trucking career.

Interesting. Before I was told different by you guys I was thinking terminals was important but I see your point now. Learning a little more everyday!

Brett, Old School, or anyone else who would like to reply. Why do some say if you live in Midwest or the Northeast that you will make more money? Any truth to that? I know it doesn’t go along with the previous discussion, but didn’t want to litter up the board with a new topic that I’m sure you all have probably answered one time or another.

No, the recruiter didn’t know me, so the idea I took it personal or the red carpet was laid out has nothing to do with the situation. I understand that trucking is a different business, but is still a business. I owned my own business for 20 years and was successful, but will not ever try and entertain the though that there isn’t much more to learn. A recruiter is a recruiter in my book. To have the idea that any company should fall short when dealing with a potential hire, new client, or even a random phone call is just not good business sense. Does a person throw a dollar bill away because he or she has two fives? That dollar may turn an extremely profitable investment. I understand your point of prove yourself and certainly agree, but a person who is representing any company as the first contact should be personable and thorough at the least. This is not because I deserve it but their employer should expect to be represented in a professional manner. I’m willing to give you the total benefit of the doubt when it comes to trucking, but will have to refer back to my experiences when it comes to management whether trucking or cake baking. I only pointed out my brothers situation as an example. Probably as you say, this is very unusual, but as unusual as it is it happened. I have no reason to fault Schneider and I call a spade a spade brother or no brother. They just didn’t fit what he was hoping for as best I can tell. I have read through articles on this site and they have been very informative. I agree I probably should have read more before asking questions that I could have found out answers on my own, but sometimes you want a different perspective. Not that the articles are not well written and well thought out, but because there are apples and oranges. I do agree with staying on to honor any contract unless there is some major reason not to. I’m sure if I started trucking today in 10 years I would still have questions. My purpose for starting this post was to gain all the info possible good and bad. I enjoy the conversations whether agree or disagree. I also feel this site is very informative and hope to continue learning as I go from many of the sites followers. Probably should have made the post title, Asking Questions instead of what it is.lol Everyone has an informed opinion. I’m sure there are those that read this and think this guy knows nothing and others who will say maybe he knows a little more than he is giving credit for. I’ll leave that to readers and thanks again for the responses! JB

Thank you PJ and yea the situation sounds similar. I guess that answer is what I’m looking for. The idea that one company would require tarping and maybe one wouldn’t.

Just bending the ears of those on here in the know brother. I’ve heard those that have said they would never pull tankers and because of roll over and others that say reefers are too much trouble... Looking back I maybe should have been a little more specific as Brett pointed out. Two of my Dad’s friends drive for Landstar and swear by it, but I’ve read on here that it would be an unlikely success for most to consider owner/operator ventures.

I don’t feel any are right or wrong, some of us are square pegs and some round per say... Thanks again for the comments. Yes I’m in N GA now, moved up from South Ga (Dodge) about 2 years ago.
