Hi, just curious if anyone can comment on if this hometime plan works as advertised. Roehl's website, and also I think Schneider's, talk about a plan of being out for 11 days, home for 3. That strikes me as balance between time working and pay, that I could work with the family I have at home. Does it work as intended? I live in North Central Missouri, does it help that I am only about 90 minutes from drop yards for both in the Kansas City area. Thank you in advance for you input!

I'm currently with Roehl. One of my trainers is on the 7 days out and 7 home time and what I'm currently on is the national fleet with every 11 days out, get 72 hours home time. Depending upon the fleet manager , it usually works but sometimes they will send you a new load that you have to cut your 72 short just to make it on time.

Fleet Manager:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

I have a buddy that works for Schneider and he works regional so he gets home for a reset every week sometimes it's sat and Sunday sometimes it's Sun and Monday. I work for roehl and I get home pretty much when I want of course I only go home every 3 weeks and I pick weekends. In the 6 months I've worked here there has only been 2 times when I haven't gotten home on the day I wanted.


Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.
