    Got the all clear sign from recruiting and im heading up to gary on the 11th....I live in between Winston salem NC and Greensboro, NC and ill be on the Southeastern fleet. Home weekly and possibly sometimes during the week for a 10. Ive been driving since 06 and its been all home daily with weekends off so itll be different. Im just tired of the empty promises from these so called dream jobs of trucking. With two kids (ages 8 and 3 1/2) I figure its a good balance of working and supporting my family and getting home weekly.....ill need a refresher with trip planning lol, because with being home everyday, theres really no need for a trip plan. How are the trucks? Im realistic however it would be nice to get a clean truck lol. Anyone who can give more info on the southeastern fleet feel free to post. Also, anyone going up to gary for the august 11th orientation?

    I have not read every page here but in skipping through it appears that Roehl does not have GPS navigotor system built in their QC. I just talked to some lady from Roehl yesterday and she says they have a GPS for navigation, EZpass, and Pre Pass. Is that not correct?

    We do have GPS and it's getting better. We also have the others as well.

    I am from Wisconsin so don't know anything about that specific fleet. Roehl has been great to me and not so great to others. They are great for getting experience though.
     
    txbigdaddy Thanks this.

    Read in another thread that Roehl doesn't allow floating gears.
    Is this true?

    They prefer if you double clutch, and if you're out with a trainer likely you'll be double clutching. When you're by yourself, well then it doesn't matter after that.

    I really wanted to join the Rohel school. I just have two questions that I hope someone could answer. One, does Rohel have a school in California where I could get hired or trained? Two, I had a DUI 8 years ago, would they still hire me? Thanks in advance.
