    Pros

    Great trucks, great fleet manager, good home time, treated me great while on dispatch. Very patient with me as this was my first company after CDL school. Very good medical, dental, vision, etc. I paid 35 dollars a week for medical alone which was great and deductables were I believe around $1500

    Cons

    I quit while on medical leave. Got harassed by a not so nice female about paperwork. I did all they asked of me but she was different than the others I had been dealiing with. She threatened me with my job if I didn't get this one page filled out by my Dr that refused to sign an exact back to work date. I am not sure when I'll be able to return to drive. I am receiving no pay right now from anyone. I want to also mention that their pay isn't up to snuff and no fuel bonuses. Both of the above were the reasons I quit. I busted my hump and didn't complain while there and the woman treated me like crap on leave.

    Advice to Management

    Don' t tick of your good, reliable drivers. They just might get fed up and leave.

    Pros

    An overall friendly environment, mostly knowledgable staff, forgiving. Pretty good about getting their equipment to maintenance. Great place for beginner drivers to learn the ropes. Tend to take better care of drivers than most other companies.

    Cons

    Directions to shippers/consignees can be hit or miss, the occasional miscommunication. Can be overly uptight to a degree. Weekly mileage can sometimes be a hit or a miss. Can be a nuisance at times when you're trying to enjoy home time and a your FM calls you about something that's not important.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice that magangement would give drivers, that gets the job done a break and just let them work. Competitive wages. Fleet managers should avoid calling drivers on their home time at all cost. Better communication overall.

    Pros

    Easy interview, they provide pretty good over the road training. I was at Marshfield and the in-class training was a waste of time. Nice and respectful staff.

    Cons

    If you are a new driver and you don't driver 75000 for them, they will take your last check and you'll still own them money. So don't quit and try not to get fired before driving 75000 miles for them (9 months of driving)

    Advice to Management

    I hate how this company requires drivers to sign a 75000 miles contract even if they have a CDL. getting fired is someting different than quitting

    Pros

    Trucking is a tough business. Understand that ALL trucking companies deal with the troubles that come inherently with trucking. As a Driver they worked with me 95 percent of the time. The other 5 percent I worked with THEM . Its give and take. Percentages are based on actual loads, not some random numbers. Equipment is A+. FM's keep you loaded. average 2800 miles a week. New truck drivers will love this company cause they know you gonna mess it up . The first six month program is designed so that WHEN you mess up its not detrimental to your paycheck . Scorecards doesnt count till after the first 6 months. Great facilities. Communication excellent . Excellent mobile app for turning in paperwork. ELOGS. Streamlined maintenance.

    Cons

    Nothing out of the ordinary that stands out. Notes to shippers and cons that get your there more efficiently need to be updated better.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strengthen your drivers paychecks.

    Pros

    .425 cpm for flatbed OTR. 1st month I averaged 2500-3000+ miles per week. My 2nd month Im averaging 2000 -2400 per week. I chose to stay out 36 days OTR off 7 days. Your choice, some guys do 14 on, 3-4 days off. It's really up to you. Equipment is ok from a company driver perspective. Freight liner Cascadia's and Intrrnational Pro Stars.

    Cons

    Anal when it comes to staying on route. I'm not accustomed to staying on their route so I find it very annoying, payscale fluctuate based on your performance per quarter (90 days). Could loose or gain a cent or two for 90 days then you get back to your normal cpm. Roehl seem to care about theri drivers. Mind you, My analysis is based on two months of employment in the flatbed division.

    Advice to Management

    Two many policies. You have rules for rules. When a driver runs hard for the company which generate company revenue, he wants to be left alone. At least I do. As long as I pickup and deliver on schedule & free of accidents I don't want to here from you period. Don't even call to say hello. By: Hassan Muhammad

    Family oriented, fair pay, great training. Overall dispatchers were available and competent.

    Cons

    There are some bad apples in dispatch. Attitudes can be a problem. If you live in the west, difficult to get home. Will work mainly I-65 from north to south.
