    They do have good trainers Jigger. That's where I started. Hope the mileage is better now though. I was kicking and screaming trying to just get 1,500 a week. After bringing home $350 a week 8 months straight, I bailed.

    I'm saying Roehl pays for the test, then if it's determined you need a machine, the will initially buy it, and you repay with payroll deduction. I've just paid off the scam last month. Been through it here.

    Well I hope the miles are better now. How long ago did you drive for them stingdar?? I sure can't live off of $350 a week.

    Last time I drove for them was May 2009 so a lot could have changed by then, but that is why I left. They also had me run illegal 4 times in the 8 months I was there. Said no one else was near me to swap loads, and being a new driver it had me on edge about getting a hefty ticket. Also, they have a guy that his sole job is to route overweight loads around D.O.T. . And no I'm not kidding. They told me that over the phone when I called in about being overweight and when I quit I reported it to D.O.T. but nothing ever happened. So the government doesn't care I guess until they get money for catching you. His last name is Peterson. It was actually my Dispatchers Dad. Forgot his first name. I left cause of that too and a few other reasons.

    I just decided to go to school on my GI Bill. I'm trying to get back in and try it again. I put one in with Maverick and they are going over my application right now. They said its no point in me taking a refresher course since I have been out of driving for a few years cause they are going to be showing me the same thing. So that saves me a $1,000. I've heard good things about them. They have flatbed and refer. Depends on the hiring area though. You might want to check them out. I know they pay more per mile that Roehl.
    Here is a copy of an email attachment they sent me
