I thought for sure Roehl was the best bet for new drivers but Millis Transfer appears to be far and away, much better. Better pay, better equipment, greater vacation time, a higher governed speed, "flexible dispatch," Sirius Satellite Radio, Direct TV, automatic transmissions, refrigerators/freezers and so on.

Anyone want to correct me or add anything? I'm going to call/apply to Millis either today or tomorrow

I'm excited to work with these guys; almost seems too good to be true

Millis Transport was my first choice but where the Misses and I are planning to move to, (Mississippi) isn't in their hiring area at the time.

They've also have a veteran discount such that when all is said and done your contractual obligation is in the $$$ hundreds $$$ not thousand. They also got a four and half star rating out of five on the Indeed website.

The ONLY negative thing I've heard his they're family own and somewhat resistant to driver input and feedback?

But that was only one review.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

They're being from out of Wisconsin?

The ONLY issue I would see would be running the Northeast.

Per my very limited thus far career in trucking?

I'm pretty sure Hell involves

#1 Riding a Greyhound bus to Springfield Missouri

#2 Driving a Semi Truck through New Jersey

#4 Driving a Semi Truck through Rush hour traffic in Dallas or Fort Worth or any major city

Winter weather? Population density?

First ignore reviews from negative reviews from sites like indeed. They are usually by disgruntled ex-emoyees. I looked heavily into Millis and they are a great company, the only thing I didn't like was they do not go to all 48 states. Just a preference. I think they have a lot of regional routes. There are ways to avoid most traffic. I drove straight through Dallas yesterday morning in the middle of rush hour. It wasn't as bad as 5pm rush hour. Good luck.

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.

Hell cannot be worse than traveling by Greyhound bus!
