Final thoughts,

Roehl was a great place to get started in the GYCDL program. The company is what it says it is and I have not found out anything different. They actually want you to be happy working there. While in training, I talked to a lot of drivers. Driver's that had left the company and gone elsewhere. They came back because they felt like they were not appreciated or valued as an employee. 'Nuff said. If your looking for a great place to get started, or looking for an employer that wants and values employees, I recommend Roehl.

I'm not making a dime off of this. I don't need to work, I'm retired. I'm here because I want to drive. All of my research led me to Roehl. I made the right decision. I love my job!!

CDL:

  • 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.

Good morning! Been in a hotel in Cleveland since Wednesday waiting to get with my trainer. I'm going to meet up with him in about 2 hours. We've talked on the phone several times, he seems to be a laid back guy.

Am I nervous? A little...

I'm also excited to get started on my 19 day trainer period. We decided I'm going to do a vast majority of the work, which I'm glad to hear. But even better, we've already found some this / interests we have in common.

If anybody reads this, I'll keep it updated as much as possible.

Nothing wrong with that Dave! In fact it's good! I think God gave us those feelings to keep us from acting like idiots. I'm sure your years in law enforcement introduced you to many an idiot who never was nervous about doing something stupid.

Hey, Dave, I have been sitting in a hotel in Brunswick next to our drop yard in Hinkley since Tuesday, that is about 20 mi from Cleveland. I was on the road with a trainer for 6 days, he is picking me up again this evening, and we have a preplan already for tomorrow from OH to PA. Good luck with your training! Keep posting, maybe we'll meet at some drop yard.
