    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:)

    Pros

    The staff is always willing to work with you and treat you like a human being you're not a number and when I needed to go home for emergencies they bent over backwards to get me home. when I scheduled Hometime they usually got me home a day before the date or on that date I never missed my Hometime dates. At Roehl family really matters

    Cons

    I really don't have anything bad to say about Roehl with my 4 1/2 years of being here

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good work up

    Pros

    I come to work each day knowing I can get the job done, because my coworkers are there to support me, I know I make a positive impact each day, I know I have ample opportunity for employment as long as I continue to perform.

    Cons

    The hours are a bit long, I feel like I spend a little too much time at work, it's the nature of the beast though, at least the time that's spent here is well compensated for and fun.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    If a novice or inexperienced driver the school is a great way to learn how to drive.

    Cons

    None to speak of really. Maybe a better stereo?

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Roehl Transport cares about the success of its employees. They consistently live their values of safety and driver success. Their training has enabled me to make a comfortable living and spend good, quality time with my family. My fleet manager treats me with respect and expediently handles any problems that arise. My experiences here have been nothing but positive.

    Cons

    There have been no cons thus far.

    Pros

    Roehl has a great value system and they live their values. I started as a Company Driver, then became a Driver Trainer and got of the road to be an Orientation Instructor. During my time here I have always been treated respectfully, my concerns have always been heard and resolved. Training is very GOOD and it is recurrent; if you are not comfortable with your skills you can request to get more training and they will give it to you.
     Best starting pay in the industry for entry level drivers, best home time, well maintained equipment (usually not older than 4 yrs.), they are always looking for feedback an trying to improve.
     Definitely worth checking them out.

    Cons

    I really don't see anything wrong with this corporation, however, there is a few rotten apples that they need to remove from the company and I am confident they will.
     Tarp pay for driver is low, not worth the risk of a fall or injury.
     Safety department always treats you like a criminal if you make mistakes.(not fair)

    Advice to Management

    Keep living your values, never become a corporation detached from your employees; they make you what you are.

    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 Management

    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.
