DRIVER (Former Employee) – Longview, WA – November 13, 2017
workdays included unloading trucks, following FMSR rules, and not working more than 70 hours per week. Rain or shine, we delivered Home Depot product to customers that purchased it online, or in the store.
Over the Road Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 2, 2017
When I worked for Schneider Trucking, I enjoyed the driving cross country. I got to see a lot of places that I probably wouldn't have seen. At the time the money was good. But my wife got sick so I had to come off the road and get a job closer to home.
Intermodal Representative (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – July 2, 2017
I was not happy working for Schneider, in the year and a half that I was there, my department went through 4 managers, 2 that were fired, 1 was temporary until the 4th one was hired. I worked on a team of 10, we only had 10 people for 3 months, people were constantly getting hired and then fired, because the training was not where it needed to be. They were not able to keep up with the amount of work that was needed to be completed each day. The rest of the team was constantly working overtime, skipping lunches and breaks, to complete the daily work needed. There are other departments that have less stress, but you do loose work/life balance wherever you work within the company. You are pretty much expected to work overtime, and if you don't. your job reviews could go down.
Company Driver, Family Dollar dedicated (Former Employee) – Maquoketa, IA – June 16, 2017
Drove for Family Dollar from the Maquoketa, IA. Some stores were so badly disorganized due to old stock cluttering the back room that my unload time was affected. Some stores were late to open the back door at their appointment time. Other stores would accuse me of being late even though I was clearly early according to the appointment time on BOL. Some stores would give me a hard time while I unloaded in +90°F and demand I moved faster. The stockers frequently put heavy glass items, (candles, pickles, grape jelly) that are packaged in groups of 6, high up and out of site. Dispatch was always very nice, yet all of my complaints seemed to be ignored because the undesirable conditions, stated above, would continue.
This job was enjoyable. I got to meet many people, scheduled my own hours to insure that the loads were delivered and always on time.
Over the Road Driver (Former Employee) – Seville, OH – May 2, 2017
The company was a very good company, as far as trucking companies go. I had a pretty good idea as to what I was getting into. But of course, back in that day many of the Federal Regulations were not being adhered to by the companies or the drivers. I am one to always follow the the legal rules and regulations, and was always capable of delivering my loads on time and without damage to the cargo. I enjoyed the work, seeing parts of the country for the first time, meeting people from all walks of life.
Able to schedule your deliveries, stop when you were able too, relax when you needed to and see the country in a whole new light.
While on the road, it was difficult to get home to the family, costs were on the expensive side for personal needs, vendor costs for truck nenecessities were high.
As long as you are willing to learn this company is willing to teach.
Truck Driver (OTR) (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 20, 2017
Just as if playing sports it takes team work. when you need leadership they have an open door policy. One thank you goes a long way. The most enjoyable part of my job was the open road, everyday a different picture.
You are your own boss on the road, just do your job.
You are not able to walk as many steps as needed to stay phyically fit.
Driver (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – February 7, 2017
Working here was like having your head held under water and only brought up to get a tiny gasp of air before being dunked again. If you have a family you will never see them it's impossible to make money there and have a life.
