Regional Driver (Former Employee), Dallas Texas – February 18, 2015
Pros: see the country
Cons: the pay
Schneider Trucking was a good company to work for. But i was not happy about how they paid there drivers. I learned a lot as to backing up to a dock. A typical day of work is just driving about 400 or more miles a day.
Truck Driver (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – February 16, 2015
Pros: on road for as long as you want
Cons: no home time
Good start for trucking. They will keep you out as long as you want. lots of miles. you will never get home when you want. Some trucks are junk. you will get newer trucks when you work there for longer time.
Not a career for people who do not like to be alone.

Driver (Former Employee), Green Bay Wisconsin – February 12, 2012
Cons: 60% of new hires do not make it, through first year.
12 out of 52 people that went for training passed. If you are lucky enough to make it through they will fire you for any small incident you have, no questions asked because then they can require you to pay the 5 thousand dollar "free tuition " they have if you work for them for 1 year. 60& of new hires do not make it through the first year.
