- Layover day

Your Choice Pay Plan™
Are you a great driver? Are you tired of waiting for annual increases? You can achieve higher levels of pay through higher levels of performance with our unique performance based Your Choice Pay Plan™. Instead of being restricted to an annual increase, you can “choose” the next higher pay level by being a high performer. You can earn a pay increase every quarter up to our top rate.
Depending on your fleet choice, it is our goal to provide you 2,300 to 2,600 miles per week. Our Your Choice Pay Plan™ mileage rates are only a portion of the compensation equation. Our safety record, maintenance schedules and freight flow plans work to keep you moving so you can maximize your earning potential. It is that balance that turns into a certified top income.
Many other trucking companies still pay short route (Household Good, HHG) miles. That means those drivers end up driving a lot of miles that they are not paid for. When you join Roehl, you can add thousands of dollars to your annual income because you're paid for more of the miles you've actually driven - typically 5% more miles.
Multiple Pay Options
Based on what works best for you and your individual needs, you can select our Tax Advantage Pay option. You end up with a bigger net paycheck by classifying part of your mileage rate as an expense reimbursement rather than income. Simply put, that means you pay less weekly taxes and take home more weekly net pay.
You will be paid $250 upon successful completion of orientation.
Almost every company mentions bonuses as part of their pay plan, but if the bonus qualifications are unrealistic, as many are, you’d better not count on them. And to make matters worse, most companies make you wait until the end of a quarter or even the year to receive them. We reward safe driving and we reward you as you go. No more waiting for a bonus – you’ll get paid as you drive those miles!
Roehl is one of the top trucking companies in the nation for profit-sharing contributions to our teammates’ tax-deferred 401(k) accounts. We’ve made contributions each year for over thirty years.
Earn Even More
We have still more ways you can add to you income—like becoming a Driver Trainer (where you can add over $10,000 to your income) or referring other drivers to Roehl. Roehl pays you for services many other companies overlook—like all intermediate pickups and drops, tarping pay for flatbed drivers, premiums if you go to NYC, Canada or when hauling a hazmat load.
Whether it is hand loading/unloading, driving through designated areas, crossing borders or customer delays, you’ll earn extra pay for other work performed with Roehl.
Roehl Referral Rewards Program
We pay you a cash finder’s fee when you refer an experienced driver who joins and stays with the company. There is no limit to the number of drivers you can refer or the referral rewards you can collect. Some drivers earn as much as $4,000 a year.
