    Anyone have experience with the $3360 program? Out of pocket costs $560, they finance the rest. This seems to be more than other transports that finance the entire amount.

    I've just started the process of trying to get on with this company. From what I've read on here, a lot of the other companies that will finance everything are a joke and must be desperate for drivers. The only exception used to be Schneider, but they no longer hire inexperienced, which sucks for me cuz I wouldn't even have to leave town to go to their school. Roehl seems like the next best option, even if it costs some out of pocket, probably is worth it. Check out others posts, mostly good things are said.

    This seems like THE school for people wanting to start a career with a driver oriented company. Not to mention, due to their reputation, you usually get a green light at truck stops saving time on the road. I am all in.

    i did the roehl school, they dont tell you but they reimbursed me 130 of that for the hotel and driving after i passed the cdl exam. not huge but it was nice and they didnt have too. i didnt know about it even. part of that was because i drove 170 miles.

    so far im very happy with the company. im home after my first evolution, waiting to hear from my next trainer.

    i would recommend them for sure, i had never been inside a truck and by the third week of school i only missed one point on the exam

    Schneider does not have their school anymore but they are definitely hiring students out of other schools. The only thing is they don't reimburse tuition like some of the other companies.
