They give you an opportunity.
BULK DRIVER (Former Employee) –  Gary, INMay 23, 2018
If you want to drive a tanker straight out of CDL school, this is the place to go.They give you the opportunity a lot of companies won't. Didn't realize how much I learned from Schneider until I had to apply the knowledge at a different company.
Pros
Opportunity to new CDL DRIVERS

Typical Truck driving company
Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  OhioMay 22, 2018
Just like any truck driving job. They do have more options as far as types of driving jobs you can do. You don't just have to do otr. Overall a good company they treat you well. You can get really good miles if you want them.

Now a Public Company
Operations Assistant (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 18, 2018
This company is very driven by numbers. There are opportunities for some. But the company culture philosophy isn't always in line with action. They treat the associates much better and with more flexibility than they do management. They do work hard to change the driver experience to that of a positive one however they need to pay them better.
Pros
Good additional benefits
Cons
Management appreciation is not as good as the recognition first line leaders give their associates.

Driving 2000 miles a week unloading 53 foot trailer by hand. Guaranteeing you time off not getting it off lying about your actual job mainly the thing is they weren't being honest about your job

Dedicated Driver (Former Employee) –  Compton, CAMay 17, 2018
No room for advancement and management expressed no sympathy for personal obligations or family life. I would not recommend this company for a long term career path.

Come here for experience, build a career somewhere else. Hauling van isn’t the most lucrative thing. They are a great company and work for their drivers

Long hours, low pay. they treat you like dirt. This is all truck driving jobs though, the career is highly undesirable. Pick something else, anything else.

Great Environment
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) –  Green Bay, WIMay 12, 2018
Great place to work, but some leaders there cannot handle their role. That could be because they have too much on their plate. A leader with a small team is a great way to start. Make sure to let them know your needs.
Pros
environment
Cons
Overworked leaders

Don't do it
driver (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMay 10, 2018
You are just a number, They believe their electronic monitoring systems including dash cam. Your level of integrity is thron in the trash. Unless you are fat and easily expandable, you get tossed around and forced to be a team driver. Buisness managers care more for their rating and bouses.
Cons
stay far away

CDL Class A Driver (Former Employee) –  Missoula, MTMay 9, 2018
Got to see lots of the country. Hated waiting for loads and dispatch won't call you back if you call in. But a very good company to start with if you looking to drive truck.

A steady job
Over-the-road truck driver (Former Employee) –  Fontana, CAMay 9, 2018
Typical work day for regional van driver 12-14 hours, at least 90% no-touch freight, occasional hazmat. Learned to use Electronic On Board Recorder and GPS. Management varied from mediocre to excellent, depending upon how engaged and concerned the dispatchers were. Some tried to accommodate drivers' needs for time-at-home, others not so much; likewise some would flag tractors for company drivers to ensure they were available when drivers reported for duty, others not at all. Workplace culture was, for the most part, relaxed. Hardest part of the job was when dispatchers would assign all-nighters, then all-dayers at random, without allowing time for the drivers' biorhythms to adjust, especially difficult in desert environment where daytime temperatures soared to 110-115 degrees and tractors were not equipped with auxiliary power units to run air conditioning during shutdowns. The most enjoyable part of the job was time spent on the open road, traversing the Sierra Nevada, the Cascades, the Rockies, the deserts of the Southwest, the Appalachians, and the occasional haul to Canada. Every state has its own, intrinsic beauty.
Pros
Steady work, regardless of economic upturns and downturns.
Cons
Time at home requests for medical appointments not honored.

Official response from Schneider
May 11, 2018

Thanks for the comment. We are working hard to create a better driver experience and address the concerns you described. For example, most of the new solo trucks we're purchasing will have Auxilary Power Units (APUs). Drive safe out there!

Productive very fast paced job
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) –  West Memphis, ARMay 7, 2018
Make no mistake this is a Top Tier trucking company. The equipment is top notch and associates can make some really good money. Drivers are well taken care of and work is constant. You get home within 24 hours of requested off times and you have significant work stop authority. Learning opportunities are plentiful and the people are genuinely nice.
