The support to go far.

Pay and benefits that make a difference in your life.


CDL Training Program & Benefits

Earning Potential.

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.

Inexperienced drivers can make $70,000+. 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 Plans™ to reward you for your performance, efficient driving and safety.
The Your Choice Pay Plans puts you in control of increasing your rate or getting a  quarterly performance bonus. That means you don’t have to wait on annual bonuses and annual pay increases, like at other trucking companies. Roehl is a certified Top Pay Carrier, and your mileage rate in our pay plans is just part of your income.
Exclusive Extras.
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

Premium Benefits.

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.

Referral Program.

There’s no greater way to grow Roehl Transport than to have existing drivers recommend friends and family they believe in. Refer an experienced CDL driver to Roehl Transport and you can up your income by $1,500. We also have a referral program for recent truck driving school graduates and for those who want paid, on-the-job CDL training. There is no limit to the number of drivers you can refer, or the rewards you can collect, and you can easily submit them through the MyRoehl app.

Get experience and get home.

When you’re new to the industry, there is a trade-off between being on home time and making money. For most truck drivers, finding the right balance is important. We offer drivers starting out in the Get Your CDL Program National and Regional fleets. As you gain experience, more fleet options with consistent, dependable schedules open up.  Roehl offers some of the best home time in the industry, with HOMEtime PLUS fleets that give you up to 26 weeks off a year.

The industry’s top safety program and record.

Safety is our cornerstone value—the first and foremost consideration in everything we do, no matter what. That's why we've gone beyond "off-the-shelf" defensive driving programs and developed the concept of "protective driving." As a Roehl driver, you will learn to actively protect yourselves and others.

The Roehl Way Protective Driving Program™ is the most advanced safe driving program in the industry and has resulted in a dramatic reduction in accident rates.
  • Drivers have final say on road conditions – if you don’t feel safe, you don’t drive, no questions asked.
  • We’ve won trucking’s top honor three times - the American Trucking Association’s (ATA) President’s Trophy Award.
  • Two-time consecutive winner of Truckload Carrier Association’s (TCA) Annual Fleet Safety Grand Prize.

Get Your CDL Training Program & Truck Driver Job Review by Dale S.


"When I first decided to pursue a driving career, I contacted  <company name removed> because they were doing a lot of advertising for drivers in this area. They made me an offer but some of what the recruiter was saying just didn't sound right to me so I declined the offer.

Prior to going with Roehl, I was delivering campers from Goshen, IN to dealerships throughout the northern Midwest and I saw a lot of Roehl trucks. They were all clean and appeared to be new and well maintained so I started to research Roehl on line. Our website (guess I can say that now :) ) is very good and I learned a lot about Roehl there. The attitude on safety and driver welfare impressed me, so I applied. I was contacted quickly by recruiting and developed a great relationship with Dakota <Get Your CDL Driver Employment Specialist>. He was excellent! He answered my questions & concerns directly and honestly. If he didn't know the answer, he said so and got back to me when he found out. Everything he told me then has turned out to be true and accurate. I also have to say after my first 4 weeks with Roehl, I feel very confident I made the right decision. The trainers were excellent! The impression I got from the website has been proven true by my experiences so far.

This has probably been much longer than you wanted and I apologize for that but that's my story. :) Thank you for your interest and support Amanda!! It means a great deal to me knowing I have you for support and assistance!!

Happy Monday & Take Care,
Dale S.
