Roehl Transport

As a lady driver I went through 2 years researching to find what I thought to be the right company to start with but turned out to be wrong. I had several pre hire consultations and read all pre hire requirements and read the pre hire contract agreement with Roehl Transport and at no time and at in no pre hire contract does it ever say anything about. Cameras ever used within the company in certain trucks. So beware of non disclosure before signing the pre hire contract letter to drive 75,000 miles for them. Especially directed to lady drivers.

I work for Roehl, the cameras aka "event recorders" only record when an event happens, ie...hard braking or an accident. They then send ten seconds of video from before the event and 10 seconds of video after the event. This video goes to a 3rd party company for review and is passed on to Roehl IF there is some sort of issue or problem that needs to be addressed. Roehl does not maintain video from the cameras, nor does Roehl ever see any video, unless there is a clear or perceived issue with something the driver did. Company policy allows for the removal of these driver facing cameras for experienced drivers. Though they are there for you and for Roehl's protection. The only reason to be concerned with them is if you are doing something that will get you into trouble.

Hey Neal, Please think about what you just said. If the camera only comes on in a event that means that if you stomp on the brakes then the camera should only record from the moment you hit the brakes. How can it send 10 seconds of video footage before you hit the brakes if is wasn't already on. Also the lady said the cameras and microphone being on was more of a issue with women than men.
