Welcome to the Safety and Job Skills Training Program (SJSTP)
We take your career and our training seriously. As a result, Roehl’s is one of the safest trucking companies in the nation. That’s why we’ll enter into an agreement with you. We'll provide you the best training and support, monthly tuition reimbursement payments, and a longevity bonus all while you’re also earning one of the highest student driver pay rates. For your part, you'll agree to be a professional driver with Roehl for 75,000 miles.
Some trucking jobs start with company sponsored truck driving schools, meant to feed into a system that seeks to maximize the productivity of a truck, not necessarily on training a new driver.
Roehl drivers are recognized as among the best on the road, throughout the industry and across the nation, and it starts with the best on-the-job training.
No one can take you to the next step in your new driving career like Roehl.
With over 25 years of experience training drivers, we know how to be successful and, more importantly, we’ll help you become a safe and successful heavy duty truck driver. You’ll get valuable experience, training, and information concerning the competent, safe, and efficient operation of tractors and trailers. We’ll put forth a significant amount of time, money, and effort to provide you with first class job training through our program. For example, we’ve made tuition reimbursement a part of our training program. This relieves you from the heavy financial burden of repaying your school loan because we pay off your school loan for you by making payments directly to your lender.
And, we know starting a new trucking job (or any job for that matter) can present challenges, so we’ll help you out financially. While you’re learning how to be successful in your truck driver job, we’ll provide you with a bonus to help ensure you’ve got good cash flow during the early part of your driving career. This longevity bonus is paid as an advance.
The industry’s top paid truck driver training program
More and more companies are offering entry level truck driving jobs, and often, the training that accompanies these student truck driving jobs is lacking. At Roehl, our rich training history speaks for itself. Drivers who have been through Roehl’s Driver Safety and Job Skills Training Program are respected throughout the industry as among the best-trained truck drivers on the road… and shipper satisfaction surveys, performance data and safety statistics back up that reputation.
Earning your CDL was the first step to becoming a professional driver. How well the company you join trains you over the next few weeks will have an impact on your entire trucking career. Be sure that when you are looking at truck driving jobs, no experience isn't an issue because at Roehl, we'll train you to be a successful truck driver!
What you’ll learn: the principles of success
Designed around easy-to-learn principles with lots of hands-on skill development, Roehl's Safety and Job Skills Training Program will teach you Department of Transportation (DOT) motor carrier rules, trip planning, freight handling and company policies.
Phase 1: Driving Skills Seminar
The Driving Skills Seminar is an on-site vocational program designed to give new drivers who recently received their CDL, the knowledge and confidence to successfully become an over the road driver.
Our professionally seasoned and knowledgeable instructors will teach you everything from close quarter maneuvering, logging, and map reading.
Phase 2 training picks up where the Driving Skills Seminar leaves off. You will put the principles you learned in driving school to work.
You'll be on the road with a Roehl Certified Trainer (you will not be driving as a team). You and your trainer will focus on refining your driving skills, maximizing fuel efficiency, trip planning, understanding how to use electronic on board log recording (EOBR) systems, learning how to handle freight and meet customer service expectations, and maintenance. This phase of training is performance-based and can last up to 13 days. You'll earn $90 per day when you are training with a trainer - that's paid truck driver training focusing on your success.
Upon completion of this phase, we'll verify your skills and issue you your first truck and work assignment, routing you in a homeward-bound direction.
You're on full mileage pay, on your own in your own truck, and you are not alone. You'll transition from a Fleet Training Manager to your own Fleet Manager and be well on your way to experiencing driver success yourself.
