How Much Will You Earn?
While many trucking companies struggle during changing economic cycles, Roehl is a proven performance leader with a diverse business portfolio and over five decades of growth. Roehl is one of the 100 largest trucking companies in the nation with over 1,900 tractors and 5,200 trailers. Our customers include some of the most prestigious brand names in America.
We have the financial strength to offer drivers a total compensation plan, and we’re certified as a “Top Pay Carrier" by the National Transportation Institute™.
Roehl’s unique performance based Your Choice Pay Plan™ allows you to achieve higher levels of pay through higher levels of performance. 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.
Upon successful completion of Safety and Job Skills Training Phase 1, meeting Roehl's qualifications and becoming a hire, you will be paid a $600 hire bonus.
P.M.P. (Practical Mileage Pay)
Roehl offers PMP (Practical Mileage Pay). Many other companies pay short
route (HHG) miles. Roehl's PMP can add thousands of dollars to your annual
income because you're paid for more of the miles you've driven. Typically
5% more miles.
Roehl’s Your Choice Pay Plan™ rates are only a portion of the compensation equation. We also work hard to keep you moving so you can maximize your earning potential. It is our goal to provide you 2,300 to 2,600 miles per week. It is that balance that turns into a top income.
Multiple Pay Options
Based on what works best for you and your individual needs, you can select Roehl’s Tax Advantage option. By classifying part of your mileage rate as an expense reimbursement rather than income, you end up with a bigger net paycheck. Simply put, that means you pay less weekly taxes and take home more weekly net pay.
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 a driver wait until the end of a quarter or even the year to receive them.
When you experience the Power of Red we recognize you for driving safe, and we reward you as you go. No more waiting for a bonus – you’ll get paid as you drive those miles!
Roehl also adds to drivers' financial well-being with one of the strongest profit sharing plans in the industry. Even during the economic downturn Roehl remained profitable and lived up to its commitment by sharing thousands of dollars in profits with our drivers.
Earn even more
We have still more ways drivers can add to their incomes—like becoming a Driver Trainer (where you can add as much as $10,000 to your income) or referring other drivers to Roehl.
Roehl pays drivers for services many other companies overlook—like all intermediate pickups and drops, tarping pay for flatbed drivers, premiums if you go to NYC or Canada, and extra when you haul 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
Roehl pays you a cash finders fee when an experienced driver you referred joins and stays with the company. You’ll get your first payment after the driver’s first 3,500 paid miles and receive another payment after completion of 105,000 paid miles. There is no limit to the number of drivers you can refer and the referral rewards you can collect. We’ve had drivers earn as much as $4,000 a year.
Driver trainer program
Roehl's on-the-job driver training program offers trainers the satisfaction of helping a person new to the job get started right. Being a trainer is your chance to pass along what you've learned and help teach a driver who will be a credit to you, Roehl and the industry.
And Roehl will reward you for your contribution. Each day you train a student on the road, you'll earn your full mileage rate plus you'll be paid a daily training rate.
It’s like getting someone to help pay for your CDL driving school training! If you paid cash or took out a loan for your tuition, and Roehl is your first-choice carrier, Roehl will repay you for what you spent on tuition—up to $6,000.
You’ll receive a $100 reimbursement for every 9,000 paid solo miles you drive plus an additional $250 upon 25,000 paid solo miles and $250 at 50,000 paid solo miles. For most new drivers, that adds up to more than $1,500 their first year. Tuition reimbursement monies are considered taxable earnings. To assist you while on the road, Roehl will send your loan payment directly to your lender or school.
