    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Pros

    Safety, Training, Safety, Salary, Safety, Home time, Safety and did I mention Safety. If you're looking to kick start your driving career or have been looking for right place to call "Home", you can stop reading the slogans and promises on the trailer doors in front of you and get on board with the leader.

    Cons

    My Fleet Manager could never seem to get me that load going to Hawaii.

    Advice to Management

    Open a terminal in Honolulu:)
