Thank you for detailing your experience!

Did Roehl pay for your transportation to and from school. Did they pay for your accommodations (hotel and food) while in training?

I have heard that they do not pay for that stuff. I wanted to ask someone who has "been there".

Thanks!

Roehl did not pay for transportation to the trng. I drove my car and used it to get to and from the term each day.

Roehl provides lunch Mon-Fri at the term. They also pay the cost of the hotel which includes breakfast. Dinner is on you.

Thank you sir!

I see you are running dry van. I'm looking at their dry van Midwest regional.

How many miles per week are you averaging? Can you shed some light on their pay plan? I see they have the "Your Choice Pay Plan" but I can't find anywhere where they explain what that entails. I understand it to be a performance based pay plan, which I'm fine with, I would just like to see how it stacks up against other plans that other companies offer.

Hope you are enjoying it out there, be safe!

Regional:

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.

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

Hey Chris,

First month out was with a driver trainer. That went really well for me. He was a great guy and very knowledgeable; I was lucky to have him.

I just completed about 1.5 mos out solo. I was nervous at first but after a couple of loads I settled down.

I’m really enjoying this career. The hardest part is being away from my wife. That part really sucks for me.

After I get some experience I want to move into lease and then o/o.
