Roehl Transport’s newly created Relaunch program will add 300 truck driving jobs for commercial driver’s license holders who left trucking for other employment.
The Roehl Relaunch Program is open to former truck drivers who may have left trucking for positions in construction, manufacturing, retail and other industries, as well as current drivers in local trucking jobs who may not be making enough to make ends meet.
“As the coronavirus pandemic continues, many people are out of work. The economic impact on those families can be tremendous,” said Tim Norlin, vice president of driver employment. “For all the former drivers seeking to relaunch their CDL careers, Roehl is prepared to help re-sharpen their driving skills while also recognizing their prior experience as a commercial vehicle driver.”
Drivers who complete the Relaunch program will be given credit for their prior experience rather than starting over at entry level driver pay rates. The program comes at an opportune time, when demand for trucking services is at an all-time high during the peak holiday season.
Roehl is also rewarding current drivers through the 2020 Peak Season Bonus, with Roehl driving teammates receiving a bonus of $0.02 per mile for dispatched miles driven between October 18, 2020, and January 31, 2021.
The 2020 Peak Season Bonus for truck drivers also applies to new candidates seeking a truck driving job with Roehl, including those in the Roehl Relaunch Program.
“No matter your experience level – from seasoned veteran to a former driver seeking to get back into trucking to someone looking to get your CDL, Roehl is a stable carrier that will support you,” Norlin added.
