    Are you sitting?? How much overnight driving do you do? Please see below post thank you!

    I hope I'm making the right decision. Roehl hired me for refer. They claim they barely do overnight driving. I've never heard of that before with refer. I'm not sure if it's in my best interest to wait for things to go back to "normal" or go to this orientation Monday. I'm waiting on unemployment decision. I qualify. I think most people do right now. I don't want to sit at home doing nothing but the unemployment may pay more than Roehl. I've been having companies call me and say "i received your application but we're not hiring right now, we'll keep it on file" they claim it's because of covid. This week K&B and Roehl offered me employment and K&B's reviews were so bad i declined. Roehl though...facing camera until i prove I'm a responsible driver. This will be my 3rd company in 14 months if i go to orientation Monday. I'm not liking this jumping around at all. I backed into another semi last June. That's why I'd have the camera with Roehl. I wonder if i should wait for unemployment and find a company in June when that incident is a year old. I'd appreciate some unprejudiced, honest advice. I'm the farthest from a lazy person. Not trying to get out of work. Just want some ideas. I want to make sure I'm making the right decision for myself. Thanks
    Also, is there an decrease in safety right now? I keep getting alerts of trucking robberies.

    Your backing incident will always be with you, as all companies will ask for a list of your accidents/incidents.

    What is it that you actually want to do?

    Figure out what you want to do, then come up with a plan to get there and follow it. Have a back up plan, because life happens.

    If you have any doubts about the Roehl reefer job, then don't take it. Your wasting time and you're becoming a "job hopper"
    and that is a label you don't want to carry in this current climate.

    You say this would be your 3rd job in 14 months if you take it.
    Like I said you need to figure out what you want to do, and that will require that you do a honest self examination.

    You made a good choice declining K&B they are a bottom feeder company. If you end up not liking the night time runs you could switch to dry van or flatbed, either way they offer both.
