Experienced Truck Driver Jobs FAQs

As of April 2024, Roehl drivers with at least one year on the job are averaging $1,345 a week (about $70,000 a year). It's also important to know that the top 50% of Roehl drivers average $1,530 per week (more than $79,700) a year.

Many factors impact a driver's earnings - things like the type of trailer being pulled and how frequently a driver is home. Other thing impacting a driver's wages include living in our Primary Commerical Zone (where we have the most customers and freight) and being a driver trainer, where you can earn more by helping recent CDL school graduates or drivers who got CDL training with Roehl start their careers. 

In some fleets, Roehl has company drivers who make over $100,000 a year.
Most likely not. Less than 1% of our freight goes into New York City. If that’s where your load takes you, you will be required to travel there, and you'll receive a $75 bonus for doing so. We've had a couple of memorable NYC loads recently - one of our teammates delivered the NBA All-Star Game flooring to Madison Square Garden. A flatbed teammate delivered a large piece of equipment that was using in the filming of the Russell Crowe movie Noah.

We have better than refresher training! If you are a CDL-A holder who stepped away from your commercial driving career for other non-driving employment, the Roehl Relaunch Program™ helps re-sharpen your driving skills while also recognizing your prior experience as a commercial vehicle driver. When you complete the Roehl Relaunch Program™, you will be given credit for your prior experience rather than starting over at entry level driver pay rates.
