    Great choice going with Roehl! They do start you in the truck quickly. Your first day should be mostly an introduction but then they get you out on the track shifting and then practicing turns with trailer. You will be out on the road driving in the first week, its hard to believe but it does go quick. Roehl is a great company, full of great people. Just passed my test today! Got any questions about gycdl let me know.

    Thanks for the reply. That's one of the things I was really curious about. I used to help my parents farm so I've driven large vehicles such as combines but that was before I even had a license. I'm excited to get started with them (October 10th). I nearly went with C.R. England and I think I would have regretted that horribly. One other question that I'm unsure if you can answer

    Once you get your own truck, how does the whole situation work with getting a refrigerator put in? Obviously I don't want to pay the money to eat out for breakfast, lunch and supper so a refrigerator would be fantastic. I do know you have to buy an inverter from Roehl and they must install it. What's the overall cost in that? I've seen claims you can only run the refrigerator for so long then have to shut it off for a block of time...that true?

    Did you look at Freymiller?
    Abilene Motor Express
    Transport America
    Navajo Express
    Titan Transfer
    All the above will probably hire you if you do the online application.
     
    Mcclai088 Thanks this.

    Hey guys, a lot of what I've heard regarding Roehl has been positive. I'm considering applying, but I have a few specific questions about hometime.

    1. Do your earned days off rollover if you decide not to use them immediately? For example, if you run 2 weeks and only take 1 day off, does the remaining one or two days day rollover to the future? **Looking at their website, it seems that hometime is pretty much set. Ex: 11-14 days out, 3 days off etc, but I'm just curious how the science works.

    2. Do you have to return your truck if you take more than a specified number of days off?

    My questions could be way off judging from their website, but let me know, thanks guys!

    hi guys thanks for all this insight into Roehl. I'm just waiting on my drug screen to come back which it should've done already as i had physical and all on the 11th and was scheduled for a start date of the 17th but thanks to the test not coming back now delayed to the 24th. I actually luck out a I chose to do flatbed national and because of my home address and prior service i get a pay boost to .415 cpm starting after all my training. Question though, What's Roehl's policy of a Laptop in the truck?

    As long as you’re not using it while driving why would they care? Almost every driver from any company has a laptop or tablet with them on the road.
