Hello, new here but not to the site. I have been looking into the industry for a few years now but never taken it seriously until the past few months. I have a simple question about Roehl, and that is how long until they contact you after submitting an application? I figure if I never hear back from them I can go to Prime (who I have already spoken to a recruiter to, but havent taken it any farther yet).

Also is the training at Roehl really as good as this site's training page claims it to be? Ive done a lot of digging and havent been able to find much info on them or much in the way of opinions on them.

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

They contacted me with in a hour or less I think. But that can very depending on how busy they are and so forth. I got sent home in 2016 from Roehl for failing the physical by 1 heart beat per minute, so I cant testify to their whole program but the 6 hours I did spend there where good. People where nice and seemed to care the students.

There are a couple people here who either went through their program recently or are in it now they should be able to be more specific.

Not really that kind of question....

Sometimes it may take a while to get back to you. The best thing to do is to call until you are able to talk to someone, and start the applications process.

Roehl has an outstanding program, and you are being paid as soon as you step on their property.. Most other companies don't start paying you until you are on your trainer's truck. Some will give you an advance, but that obviously gets paid back. Roehl is the ONLY company that PAYS you from start to solo. ( I might be incorrect.)
