Pros
  • Roehl Transports home time fleets are great for drivers who need to be home more (in 12 reviews)

  • I listened everyday to the Fleet Managers, work with their Drivers (in 9 reviews)

Cons
  • National drivers who are out for a month at a time are low man on totem pole when come to loads and getting home on time (in 7 reviews)

  • A lot of turn over in Fleet Managers, causing the need to renegotiate with each one about prior agreements made (in 11 reviews)

    I worked at Roehl Transport full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Truck 4086. I had a great experience working for Roehl. I was given plenty of miles, pay was everything I expected and I couldn't ask for a better FM. Theresa Putnam always went above and beyond for me. I know I can be a p.i.t.a but if your not sure, ask questions. She will be one of the major things I'll miss about Roehl. If you work hard, you'll get paid what your worth (Roehl doesnt hesitate to make that possible) The reason I left was because the lifestyle just isn't for me (I'm a family man). My truck was always maintained. Never a blown tire, never broke down, always 100%. Thank you for the opportunity and I wish you guys all the best luck moving forward.

    Cons

    Benefits were a little expensive for me and didn't cover much so I chose to decline them, too much time away from family. Like I said I'm a family man. If there was ever a Roehl local job to open up where I live, please call me!

    Advice to Management

    Roehl is hands down "The Best". Thanks again for everything!

    Pros

    If you want to learn how to become a (good and safe) truck driver this is the company to learn with.

    Cons

    For anyone you too over the road truck driving, the biggest con is usually time away from home. Support over the weekend by Fleet managers is a bit weak.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I can offer to management, would be to improve or add to the weekend support staff. ( these comments do not include the maintenance department)

    Pros

    This is a great teaching company. There's a lot of opportunity to learn here. It's also a great company culture. Everyones super nice and friendly.

    Cons

    I have a degree in Logistics. So for me there wasn't longevity with this. It wasn't for me personally to grow a career.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really. I think they do a great job of monitoring and giving feedback. they make time for you if you ask.

    Pros

    Kraft dedicated fleet was great, home every weekend..fleet manager was good

    Cons

    If you are military us your GIBill to go to a school and DO NOT USE the Get your CDL Program. I spent 10 months with Roehl doing the best job I could and I was given a nice pay raise for my good work and I thank Roehl for it. But because of family issues and needing to take care of my children I had to leave and I wish I didn't have too. Roehl kept my last paycheck when I needed it most..and I have to pay back the Get your CDL Program. When my world is already falling apart. They are uncaring in that aspect...but my fleet manger wants me back as he knew he could count on me.

    Advice to Management

    sometime compassion can go a long way to making a better world

    Pros

    The GYCDL program in Marshfield trains you enough to pass the test, but the trainers there really care and help you. They are SERIOUS about safety, which is why I chose them. A LOT of bonus pays: going to NY/Long Island/Canada, tarping, detention, snow, short-haul, lay-over, break-down, Hazmat, over dimensions w/permit... very few companies offer these extra pays. New Equpitment

    Cons

    Been sitting for almost 3 weeks still no OTRT after training in Marshfield. Not enough flatbed securement training, no tarting training, no computer training (co-pilot), not enough map and trip planing training. No gun/weapon or guard dog for protection allowed in Trailer.

    Advice to Management

    Get people out faster, pay what you say you will pay, give miles or stop hiring too many people. Allow people to protect themselves with their LEGALLY registered gun or guard dog (they take on all responsibilities) if they are OTR for 3/4 weeks out. Very unsafe for young drivers/women without security.
