2015-11-10 Roehl is Military Friendly Employer for third straight year

Marshfield, WI – For the third consecutive year, Roehl Transport has earned the Military Friendly Employer® designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse magazines. 

Roehl received the recognition by completing a data-driven survey that was independently tested by Ernst & Young. Criteria for the survey included a benchmark score across key programs and policies, such as the strength of company military recruiting efforts, percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs for veterans, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.   

Roehl Transport is a great place to work, and winning the Military Friendly Employer award three times is confirmation that our programs designed for military veterans and active Reserves lead the industry,” said Greg Koepel, Roehl Transport Vice President and US Army veteran.

Company founder Everett Roehl started Roehl Transport in 1962, shortly after his military service ended. Now, with over 2,500 employees and growing, Roehl Transport has become a pillar of the transportation industry. Roehl hires truck drivers, mechanics and many other positions from across the county through its employment website www.Roehl.Jobs.

"Companies that have earned the 2016 Military Friendly Employer award have exceptionally strong hiring programs and meaningful careers for transitioning service members and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer of Victory Media and Navy Reserve veteran. 

Military veterans and active Reserves receive recognition in the Roehl Honor Program™. And, for those who are transitioning from active duty and need training, Roehl’s developed the Get Your CDL Program – a truck driver job with paid CDL training. The fact that the job that pays the employee while they get their CDL is a unique difference when compared with company sponsored truck driver training. 

Roehl also has a two-year Apprenticeship Program (approved by both the Department of Labor and the Department of Veterans Affairs) that provides advanced training, earns those that complete the program certification as a Heavy Duty Truck Driver and allows those in the program the opportunity to take advantage of their GI Bill monies. 

Koepel summed up the significance of the award by saying, “We recently won trucking’s top honor, the ATA President’s Award. That’s like winning trucking’s equivalent of an Oscar. The Military Friendly Employer designation means our leadership extends outside of our industry and places us among some of most elite employers in the country.”
