Does anyone know whether Roehl is still using the CRT test on the first day of orientation? The EEOC has started bringing lawsuits against carriers that use that test to weed out new truckers. Here's a link to the story: https://www.jdsupra.com/post/contentViewerEmbed.aspx?fid=19ca6c61-33e3-4a80-a82f-e4ecaf075a8e

"According to the EEOC's lawsuit, Schuster's use of the CRT Test, a strength test developed by Cost Reduction Technologies, Inc., discriminates against women truck drivers because of their sex. Specifically, the EEOC alleges that the CRT Test disproportionately screens out women who are qualified for the truck driver position at Schuster. This includes the individual who filed the charge with the EEOC, who Schuster refused to hire as a truck driver when she failed the CRT Test. The EEOC is seeking relief for a class of women who were not hired because they failed the CRT Test and an injunction preventing Schuster from continuing to use the test."

I had that test when I went through orientation at Roehl in 2016. I didn't see anybody having a problem passing the physical portion of it.

Roehl no longer uses the CRT test. Their capabilities test is simply a test of whether a person can actually get in and out of the truck, open the hood, check under the truck, and so on. I talked with the recruiter about it this morning.

Whew! That's a relief. I guess that makes them a good place to start now.

When are you taking the plunge?

My flight to Atlanta is on Sunday, and the first day of orientation is Tuesday, June 1st. Six people, including me, are starting their training that week.
