Over the road job, enough said
Driver (Former Employee), Marshfield, WIApril 23, 2015
Pros: Great Equipment
Cons: Low pay for company drivers.
In terms of a interstate commercial carrier, Roehl was a good, stable company to work for. All of the equipment was very well maintained and the dispatchers were helpful (Monday through Friday) and the training program was very well thought out. I learned much from Roehl.

Good place to work
Diesel Mechanic (Former Employee), Appleton, WiApril 3, 2015
Pros: Good pay, 8 on 6 off
Cons: working a lot of holidays and very repetitive work
Working as a mechanic at Roehl had its ups and downs. Hard work and a lot of trailers, equipment is kept up pretty good. Resources to complete the jobs is there. Lots of tires. Pay was very good as long as you work hard. 8 days on 6 off was nice but sucked when it came to holidays. No overtime pay but you can work more hours than 40 which is nice. As a full time employee you get 40 hours no less, even when its slow. Clean work environment. Saftey comes first. You can have fun but the work has to get done and done right. I would not have left there to go to my current job if i would have know how it would have been. Its a lot of the same work over and over

Have you considered coming back to TeamRoehl? Our maintenance teams are growing right along with our company. There's a pretty big need right now in the Chicago market, and we're also looking for techs for our new location in Atlanta.

It was a very nice place to work at. On the road 99 percent of the time
Transportation Specialist (Former Employee), Marshfield, WIMarch 1, 2015
Pros: you were basically your on boss basically. just do your job like you would want it done.
Cons: sometimes on the road for 8-10 hrs which can wear on you depending on the other drivers
It was a very Safety and well coordinated trucking company. I had issue with their electronic sensoring on the trucks. That's basically why we departed our ways. I've drove for about 20 years without a ticket or accident. But according to them and the sensors I was becoming an unsafe driver. A typical day would be pick up load at shipper and delivery to consignee on that day or as many days as it took to get to consignee.Traveled the whole U.S. from coast ot coast. Didn't really have alot of contact with co-workers unless they were at same shipper at the time you were there or stopping at the same truck stop for the night. The hardest part of the job was finding a place to stay for the night sometimes and certain city traffic nightmares.

there are camera in the trucks
Professional Truck Driver (Former Employee), Ellenwood, GAFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: excellent training to get your cdl
Cons: dangerously inaccurate directions to shippers/ receivers, never home on time, health/ dental insurance are not accessible because they don't bother to get you home on time.
The pay is pretty bad. I worked 70 hours per week and brought home $460 per week. I once stayed out OTR for 28 days straight and brought home $2200. There are cameras in some of the trucks. It is an absolutely thankless job. In 2010, trucking was the 7th deadliest profession in the US.

former Dairyland and Dedicated Route driver
Dedicated Route Driver / Dairyland Driver (Former Employee), Marshfield, WIFebruary 5, 2015
Pros: good equipment
Horrible pay. You have to fight for home time . Expensive health benefits . The lies just flow out of the entire organization . Sit at customers 4-5 hours waiting to be unloaded . Get to customer , dispatch given already gone, wait 2 hours for them to come up with another dispatch . Wrong pick up numbers always, Drove 2900 miles one week, less than 1000 the following week . In fact the second weeks pay was soooooo bad, I couldn't by a 6 pack and 2 hamburgers with it. The idle time was used fruitfully applying for a new job, which I got.

Great for New Drivers
Truck Driver (Current Employee), Ellenwood, GAJanuary 17, 2015
Pros: this company will have you home every 2 weeks.
Cons: a lot of sitting and waiting on live loads
You can learn a lot from this Company. It would be much better if you could take your pets. Also I don't like that fact that a lot fo the runs are short once you get up in the Wisconsin-Indiana area.

Roehl recently announced a pet program. The details are still being worked out. And, they also recently enhanced their passenger program. Overall, both of these seem to be very positive changes.

I Want to Retire with Roehl!
Workforce Training Specialist (Current Employee), Marshfield, WIJanuary 6, 2015
Pros: living their values
I have been working here for 7 years and I can confidently say I want to retire in 30+ years from here. Many of my coworkers are more like family. This company is not perfect, it strives to be perfect every day and I have respect for that. I have a family, I find my supervisors respectful and flexible when I need time off to care for them. They also challenge me to test my abilities weekly, which has given me great pride for my work over the years. My job is different day to day which keeps me interested. The company is values based, and we all are given the power to hold each other accountable. Best of all, I feel appreciated for everything I do. I feel most rational people will find being a part of TeamRoehl is a great place to be. I really could write a book about my time here. Instead, see for yourself.

Stay away!!!
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Toledo, OHDecember 28, 2014
Pros: a great fleet manager and an awsome dedicated account
Cons: pretty much everything else! cameras on you at all times!
Ok so I gave Roehl transport a try.I have 2 years exp driving truck.I have a perfect lifetime driving record in both trucks and cars.After the whole song and dance of orientation I find out that the trucks are governed at 63 but the cruise is set at 61.Also they don't want inverters being used but if you want one you have to buy it from them at a cost of 350 dollars and it will have a cumulative timer on it of 2 hours.What does that mean you say? After it has ran for 2 hours(even if that's 1 min a day for months) it will shut down for 12 hours.Just wait now it gets better.They tell you all there trucks are fairly new which is true what they don't tell you is there maintenance on these trucks(75% internaitonals 25% freightliners) is nearly non existant.Oh they will check it into the shop and waste huge amounts of your time(days) but nothing is getting fixed unless it dosent run or something.On to the trailers ! Many are not dot legal and the ones that are I'd say 40% have no trailer brakes and the tandems are rotted soild.How soild you ask?I'm talking putting blocks under every trailer tire and using every trick you have learned at once and they still wont move rusted solid ! Did I mention half there loads are overweight and there 5th wheels are the non sliding type? So ya good luck with that.There routing and fuel stops are given to you and must run them exactly.The routing is the worst I've ever seen or even heard of in the trucking industry period.We are talking all day down backroads with no place to stop.How are the fuel stops then? Yup you guessed it off route most of the – more... time ! Did I mention your pay is based off this giant mess?So ya good luck with that. Now on to cameras! They put one in my truck facing me one facing outside of the truck and a microphone inside my truck! They didn't tell me they were going to do this,ask my permission for this or anything ! So from day one I'm asking them to remove these cameras.Whats safetys response? They made up an incident that I hit something in an effort to keep me on camera which was quickly disproven.Now my fleet manager was honestly pretty awesome best I've ever seen.Took him a couple weeks after that but he got me switched into a new a truck without a camera.What is safetys response ? To call me up and first tell me I'm going back to a truck with all the cameras( and microphones!) and that I will not be even moving the truck I'm in till I agree.Of course I will not.Why would I ?So I'm told I don't care repeatedly and I'm very dangerous! So while I'm trying to ask this wonderful person were I can turn my truck in properly she busts into a very unprofessional 15min screaming session! After which I turned my loaded truck around took there loaded trailer back and turned there truck into the nearest yard ! Since then not a single person from upper management has called me to try and resovle the situation or even talk to me! This was my short exp with Roehl transport.Yours may be better or worse but I can only tell you of my exp .My advice though is stay as far away as you can! – less

7 months at Roehl
Class A Truck Driver (Former Employee), Marshfield, WINovember 11, 2014
Pros: paid training, a ob
Cons: your a tool nothing more
Roehl got me started and helped me learn trucking,
but be warned ,, they are corporate
if you get hurt or sick or worse a ticket,, they are not there for you.
I got a speeding ticket in Calif. ticket said i was traveling at 71mph
Roehl pre judged me quilty before my day in court and wanted to put cameras in my truck, inside and out.
ended up getting ticket reduced to 64 in a 55.

Roehl didn't help me and support me during the legal process..
When I got Bronchitis from working flatbed outside in the weather,
Roehl wouldn't let me have time off to see a doctor. I paid for it,, doctor medicine and extra days without pay.
Then they sent me home, decided they didn't want flatbeds from the west coast anymore.
So they let me go.. deducted my trip home from last paycheck and claimed I voluntarily terminated... I didn't.

They have "Team Roehl" literature and web pages...
don't be fooled.. its the Corporate team,, your not on it.

If you like OTR/Regional driving this place is ok.
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Marshfiled, WisconsinOctober 13, 2014
Pros: competitive pay, decent health insurance, flexible schedules, great support staff, decent equipment, clean facilites.
Cons: governed trucks at 60mph, detention pay is not that good, very heavy loads.
If you like OTR and regional driving this place is good. I have worked for 2 OTR transport firms. Roehl is by far the best. They will listen to you and are on your side. Dispatchers are very helpful but firm. Hardest part of the job is being away from home a lot. For some people it's ok. They have several flexible schedules like 7 on 3 off but you can't make the good money if your at home not running. I guess what I'm saying is if your committed to truck driving and don't mind being away from home check this place out.

Not what I expected
Over the Road Driver (Former Employee), Marshfield, WIOctober 10, 2014
Not what I expected. Thought I would enjoy it but the training was horrible. Had a chance to drive up in the mountains when it was snowing and how unsafe other drivers were in the winter change my mind.

Typical trucking job
Class A CDL Over The Road Driver (Current Employee), Marshfield, WIJuly 25, 2014
Not a bad starting company. It is a typical OTR driving job. My dispatcher for the north east was great and I never had any problems.
