Go there to get some experience, then go to work at a top paying company like Crete, Schafer, Nussbaum, or if you like flatbedding go to Melton. Work hard, smart, and be SAFE first and foremost. I retired with over 10 years and a million miles never hurting anyone or myself. But I do want to say there are many great people at Roehl and good equipment...if you want a stripped down IH or Freightliner..no fridges, cheap mattresses, automatics, so no skills needed. Go somewhere you can drive a 10-13 speed manuals, have fridges, upgraded interiors, Direct TV, xm/serius. You live in that truck 1, 2, or more weeks at a time. Enjoy it. There's a lot of carriers you can get most of not all. I would not go back there. Better choices folks
Of a good dedicated route that paid well and good home time. Later I changed to lease operator for 6 months. Got screwed over time after time. Then went back to regional because dedicated had no openings. After 6 months they lowered my pay below my agreed to rate so I left them.
I got nervous behind the wheel when I started to learn to drive a truck and semi trailer. This hindered my progress on learning. Trusting my trainer and not second guessing an instruction would have helped me in the program.
