We pay you while you are training to get your CDL and when you continue out on the road with a Certified Driver Trainer. Once you’re in your own truck, you’ll be paid solo mileage, and that depends on which fleet you’re in. As you gain experience and become better at your job, you’ll be more efficient and you’ll earn more.
After nine months, inexperienced drivers are averaging $50,000 a year in earnings. And you can earn more than that because we have one of the most innovative pay packages in the trucking industry.
While most trucking companies still use an old flat cents per mile (CPM) rate, we created the Your Choice
Pay Plan™ to reward you for your performance, efficient driving and safety.
The Your Choice
Pay Plan puts you in control of increasing your rate. So you don’t have to wait on bonuses and annual pay increases, like at other trucking companies. Roehl is a certified Top Pay Carrier, and your mileage rate in the Your Choice
Pay Plan is just part of your income.
In addition to the pay plan CCJ Magazine dubbed “Innovative” and “A Better Way To Pay,” Roehl also covers a ton of extras that most trucking companies can’t touch. You’ll get paid for:
- Intermediate Stops
- Tarping and Untarping (flatbed)
- Hand Load or Unload (95% of our van loads are no-touch)
- Detention Time
- Short Haul Pay (loads under 100 miles)
- Layover Day
- New York City and Long Island (less than 1% of our freight goes there)
- Canada Pay (if you’re on a fleet that goes into Canada)
- Placard Load Premium
- Refrigerated Modular Unload
- Secondary Load
Roehl offers a complete benefits package, including one of the top profit-sharing contributions among US trucking companies, to support drivers and their families. In a truck driving job with Roehl, you’ll find our benefits both comprehensive and affordable.
