Overall Reviews at Roehl Transport
Over the Road Truck Driver | Conley, GA | May 3, 2020
Lost their family atmosphere, too focused on obtaining mega carrier status!
Had a love hate relationship with them. Depending on who your fleet manager on depends on how long you stay. I believe when working here, reading in between the lines has to be one of your strong points.
ProsHome time options
ConsMicromanagement from safety, trucks are extremely underpowered, they were secretive and lack of communication with drivers!

Training was good
I did the GYCDL program with them in Marshfield, Wisconsin because those types of programs are the only way I could afford truck-driving school. Over The Road training was pretty good, but I failed the 45 degree backing on test-out day for my own truck. Still had the license though, so I was able to get Class B jobs.

Work you until you crack.
Don’t get paid much, they try to squeeze every penny from you. I signed a contract to get my CDL with them. They agreed to pay for school if I drove 100,000 miles with them. I was almost done and got injured. They fired me!!! Now I owe the complete amount, no credit was given for the 80,000 + miles I drove for them. THEYRE AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!! Truck always had issues. Dirty trailers, they take advantage of the new drivers. DONT DRIVE FOR THESE CROOKS!!!!!!!!!
ConsShady, shady company.

Roehl is a solid family owned company. I learned a lot about the varied divisions, such as flatbed and refrigerated. Management and culture were good for the most part. The hardest part of the job was sometimes reaching concensus between various departments and the owner. The most enjoyable part of the job was the ability to introduce processes and improvements to improve efficiency and results.
ProsSolid & steady
ConsSometimes hard to reach concensus

Training was top notch. After grinding the over the road lifestyle out I found myself wanting to go local. If you're running regional try to work it so that your live events happen earlier in the day.

This company plays games and is unethical
As a trainer, as soon as you get your first decent raise they cut your loads/miles and don't keep students in your truck if you are a trainer. They take safe miles away from you for incidents that were not your fault. They do everything in their power to prolong your time commitment with them after they put you through CDL school. They know darn well nobody wants to stay with them after their contract commitment so towards the end they drag it out so that it takes longer to fulfill your mileage commitment. The unethical things they do with people's pay is ridiculous. The left hand does not know what the right hand is doing with this company. Nobody is on the same page and nobody communicates. Don't get excited about getting a raise because as soon as you do they cut your miles and if you are a trainer they don't keep a student in your truck because they don't wanna have to pay you the extra for it. Their CDL training is a joke, they don't teach drivers the basics such as route planning. They don't care about putting skilled drivers on the road and they don't care about driver safety.
