    I worked at Roehl Transport

    Pros

    Safety was their main concern,, kept me busy which makes money.. very organized,,, Training was very complete

    Cons

    Were not flexible as stated from moving from flatbed to Van divisions.
    Were quick to judge you for a ticket of accident that may not have been your fault.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be a little nicer when you speak of concerns or problems your having with different department within the organization... there attitude is its always the drivers fault.
    Paricualary the Safety and Compliance Dept. run by a female SS officer.

    I have been working at Roehl Transport full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    what I like the most is that you are treated as a person and not just a number .Roehl has the best home time I have seen in the industry and everyone wants to see the driver succeed ,also there training program is second to none as far as I'm concerned. The opportunities are unless at Roehl , If you are hired as a driver and want to move up in the company. Roehl will give you the opportunity to do so.

    Cons

    It is what it is .this is trucking.

    Pros

    Their equipment are in good condition. Not having someone over your shoulders while doing your job. The opportunity to travel.

    Cons

    They try to micromanage everything instead of letting professional drivers do our job. If they are wrong they never take responsibility but always places blame on driver. They have no respect for the people who are the life blood of their business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please fix the above issues.

    Pros

    Not much I can say that is pro

    Very rude recruiters in Atlanta where I went junk equipment to take road test in food they give for lunch 1/2 a sandwich n bag chips. No drink if you asked about it they said your lucky to get that/I decided I didn't
    Want to work for people that treat you like a dog b4your hired

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will never keep good drivers by lieing/don't say your going to get things and then say well you have to do this n that to qualify for it that is misleading I wasted 2days of my time for nothing but grief fyi I have 25years experience/and excellent job record

    Former Employee - OTR Driver, Dry Van in Ellenwood, GA

    I worked at Roehl Transport full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They were great with miles once I started, benefits were reasonable, routes were clear, and well planned

    Cons

    After about six months, planning routes became something that the planners couldn't seem to handle properly. Loads were placed on me when I didn't have the hours to complete them safely and I was forced by dispatch to accept these loads. I needed my truck fixed, though there were several small things wrong with it at first, that number quickly grew, and the trailers were poorly maintained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some planners that know how to plan for current routes, included restricted roads, and hopefully they'll be able to communicate with the fleet managers to keep the drivers rolling safely.

    Pros

    people are real friendly during orenatation

    Cons

    they won't help you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I just graduated from school, they brought me to a terminal, we was told we had 7 days with them before hired. 2 days later after being there, they gave us all an evaluation. Unfortunately I didn't pass because according to the instructor he said I hit the curb witch I didnt, he also said I used improper lane change and grinded a little bit. Which I did because I'm right out of school but I'm showing improvement , so they failed me , sent me home and I had to find my own way. Also told me I can call a recruitor and go to there school it will cost me and I would have to sign a 1 year contract

    Pros

    Good equipment, good training, gets me home pretty much on time when I ask. Pay is on time.

    Cons

    Nit enough miles. Planning is iffy at best. Get decent check one week then bad one the next. Work way too many hours for too little pay 50 dollars is a slap in the face for the utter bs we have to go thru to do business in Canada. Weekend dispatch sucks. Gary terminal service is aweful. Pay per mile is rediculous for work performed and hours to perform it. Love the job but cant afford the insurance and cant make my bills at this pay rate. Binuses are a joke and unobtainable. They solit hairs over detention and layiver oay. No wonder they cant keep folk

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We know what the loads pay, fuel costs, and what the trucks cost, pay raises are nec and benifits need to be way better. And planners need to be more efficient. Weekend dispatch.... Nuff said
