Never short on work
Dedicated Driver (Former Employee), Memphis, TNJune 12, 2013
Pros: great benifits
Cons: gone from home to much
Pick up a loaded trailer, deliver load to a store, unload trailer, return trailer to get loaded. The management was great they would sit and listen to any grief or praise. always on top of what needed to be done before it was a problem, like renewing med card license or any training. Unloading a trailer in the hottest part of the summer was the most – more... difficult part of the job. – less

Top fish in a large pond
Driver in Training (Former Employee), Green Bay, WIJune 9, 2013
Pros: great training and friendly atmosphere
Cons: limited home time; but hey thats trucking
I really can't say much about Schneider. My short time there was a good one. I feel overall they are a good company; but the job they offered me didn't fit my needs back home. Perhaps if a more local offer came to pass, I wouldn't mind going back and seeing what became of it.

Good place for ex-military or ex-cops to work.
Driver (Former Employee), All over the USApril 11, 2013
Pros: best place for ex-military to find work.
Cons: militant atmosphere, old equipment.
Very militant atmosphere, very strict with all the rules. You CAN'T idle your truck unless temp is below 32 or over 99 (terminated if you do). Trucks are well maintained, but very slow (60mph max), very old, and a lot of "old age" problems. Trailers are trash, rusted out, tandem don't slide, holes all over, P&G rejects 2 out of 3 for loading, and empties – more... are very short supplied/hard to find. "Company" driver pay is not great, a bit on the lower side of the industry, but it is consistent.

Almost always drop-and-hook, very rare to have to wait to be loaded. They are very good at scheduling continuous loads, you almost never have to wait on your next load, it's usually waiting on you. They are very good at getting you home when you want or need to be there, you usually run about 12 days, then get 2 days at home. One of the best company terminal networks in the business, so you don't have to use a lot of truck stops for sleep periods, showers, or fueling. Very secure. Excellent cafeterias with good food, low cost, and well balanced meals available.

Owner/Op pay and benefits are also some of the best in the business. Same great loads and dispatching that the company drivers get. Higher pay rates, lower maint costs, dependable paycheck every week (no surprises, except that it may be bigger than you expect). Incredible fuel discounts negotiated at Pilot truck stops (and a few others). No out of pocket, company pays for fuel, maintenance, and repairs, you repay them at settlement time. – less

very busy, great trucks
OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee), WIJanuary 22, 2013
Pros: got to see a lot of the country.
Cons: was supposed to be coast to coast, but was kept on the east coast.
Driving 11 hrs. A day with a team driver from one city to the next , delivering products. Great learning experience in and out of the truck. Dealing with the customers and seeing the east coast was enjoyable. Didn't much care for the computer system they had in the truck though, thought it was very annoying, couldn't get a hold of the right people in – more... management a lot of times , when there would be problems.. – less

Professional Driver (Former Employee), Gary, INAugust 7, 2012
A common day a work for me was usually fast paced from start to end. What i took from this job is to work hard an be honest. My management was always in eyesight to assist with any issues that may occur. The hardest part of the job was to deal with the outside elements. Overall i enjoyed the jobs task.
