When I first started posting questions, both Brett and Old School told me to make a list of my priorities, money, home time, miles, equipment etc and then put them in the order of most importance to me. Once I had that list, I searched out the company that could best accommodate my needs.

Have you spoken with any recruiters from the two companies? The reason I ask is because they'll often have a list of perks for their company that sets them apart. You already know that if they won't put it in writing somewhere (website, email, written letter, etc) then you can't count on it. But that's the job for a recruiter - to sell you on their company. So if you tell them, "Look, your company is so similar to [company name] that I really can't decide. What do you guys offer that they may not?" you'll likely get some solid answers.

Like Robert said above, make a list of preferences - home time, type of freight you'd like to haul, pay, benefits, equipment, future opportunities - and compare them side by side.

Also, talk to some drivers from each company if you haven't already. That might give you some insights.

I had a good experience with Roehl.

I can't speak to how good Roehl is as I haven't worked there, but I do work for Werner. I can say that my experience has been mostly positive. There have been some rough spots, some my fault, some the companies, others from external sources, but I expect the same would happen at any company. They've been good about getting me home when I request home time, even though I live in Florida which is a light freight area for the company. They have pet and rider policies, though since I haven't used either I can't speak to either.
