Experienced Drivers

Take a deep breath. You will be treated differently as a member of TeamRoehl.

As an industry veteran, you have many options. You can leave one driving job and get another with a simple phone call. And companies use many lures: local jobs, a penny or two more per mile, high weekly miles and home time — you’ve certainly heard these promises in the past. 

When considering Roehl, please know this: Our reputation of Take Home More, Be Home Moreā„  has been earned over our 50 years of success. We’re built on values: safety, driver success, honesty, mutual support and teamwork. We have drivers with over 4 million safe miles and 40 years with Roehl. 

We’re a strong, growing company that you and your family can count on.

Take Home More

Roehl has the financial strength to offer you a total compensation plan. At the end of the year when you get your W-2, you know that many different factors other than miles and mileage pay make up a great income. We’re proud to be certified as a “Top Pay Carrier" by the National Transportation Institute.

At Roehl, you’ll be paid for extras that other carriers do not pay you for, including:

  • Intermediate stops
  • Tarping and untarping (Flatbed)
  • Hand load or unload 
  • Detention time 
  • Short haul pay (loads shorter than 100 miles)
  • Layover day
  • NY City & Long Island
  • Canada pay
  • Placard load premium
  • Refrigerated modular unload
  • Secondary load
  • Approved lumpers paid

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.

Mileage Pay

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.

Orientation Pay

You will be paid $250 upon successful completion of orientation.

Bonuses

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!

Profit Sharing

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.

Be Home More

You understand what it’s like to be out on the road—sometimes for weeks at a time. At Roehl, you only stay out that long if you want to. Our flexible home time options are designed to give you a LOT—a Life Outside the Truck™. Our popular HOMEtime PLUS™ fleets continue to lead the industry by giving our drivers consistent, dependable schedules. 

You have friends and hobbies and responsibilities around the house just like anybody else, and you do not have to be on the road for two or three weeks at a time if you do not want to be. 

Different people, at different stages of life, have different home time needs. At Roehl, we get you the home time that balances your needs while still maximizing your earning potential. We take home time seriously.

Flexible Home Time Options

From our National Fleets with two days home after ten days out to our HomeTIME Plus™ fleets, with up to 26 weeks off a year, we are known for our home time.

Get Your Miles and Go Home

With most companies, you have to stay out weeks at a time to get the miles you need to support your family. At Roehl, we combine technology, a strategically structured customer base and freight flow plan and driver-friendly operations to optimize your productivity. Just like you, we want your downtime to be spent in your living room, not on the road.

Outstanding Operations Support

Our Fleet Managers will give you a single, familiar point of contact—one person who knows the details of each trip from beginning to end, your schedule and your preferences. And when you have a special request… a special occasion you want to be home for, we’re dedicated to getting you there.

Home On The Road

Enjoy quality family time through our Rider Program, which gives you the opportunity to bring your spouse or child (over age 10) with you on the road.

Watching Out For Your Whole Family

We’re a family-oriented company, and that’s why we are proud of our Life Outside the Truck™ philosophy. It means we’re dedicated to supporting you and your family as well.

We’re there as a resource for your spouse and loved ones. If they ever have to get a message to you, we make it happen right now. If they have questions about benefits, payroll or just about anything else that has to do with managing a household with one partner away on the road, we’re ready to help. Our pay services department ensures you receive your directly-deposited paycheck quickly and accurately, even if you’re in the middle of a trip.

With Roehl, over-the-road driving is a rewarding and positive career for your whole family… and we believe you deserve a LOT—Life Outside the Truck™.
