    Pros

    Great work environment, never bored, opportunity for large incentive checks. Success depends on your own personal commitment

    Cons

    Not very good pay if you are not getting incentive. If you can't handle a fast paced environment or difficult conversations with customers, this job is not for you

    I worked at Schneider full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Recent grad, decent benefits, OTR experience, atlanta crew was very good.

    Cons

    I was on a jcpenny dedicated account when I was asked to start my sleeper birth time while I was at a shipper to do a run dispatch wanted me to do that was a eight hour run. I said no.If u speak up there is a problem. No paid days off sick holidays personal but want to micro manage you. Detention slavery wages sit four hours for 20$. All dispatch should be on one accord. I recently resigned. Since I've been on this jcpenny account my check has been incorrect. One week I didn't even get paid. That's when it's time to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better leadership practice what u preach as far as safety. Pay needs to be better.

    I have been working at Schneider full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good Pay, good Equipment, Lots Of loads. $50.5 Load Pay + 0,42c a Mile for experinced drivers. You can average $300/day and work 6 days of you choose to do so and have hours to run. Supposedly 75% drop and hook, but depending on your start time, that can go down to %50.

    Cons

    Management and support shift. Bad dispatch. Appointment times not honored because dispatchers plan your day bad sometimes. Local dispatch can mess your day up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dispatch according to day, traffic patterns, Rush hours, and give us reasonable time to get to hour appointmens. Specially if requires live loads and unloads.

    I worked at Schneider full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Schneider is a company of integrity. They will at times put themselves in a position to lose business in order to do things the right way. This is true through all parts of the company. Schneider has an incredible track record as a leader in safety and they spend a lot of time and effort to continue to lead their industry in that regard. The company has several different lines of business, so it is possible to experience different projects and objectives and grow in different ways. Most managers support working-from-home if the work permits. Schneider is very supportive of families and the community.

    Cons

    Schneider doesn't take developing their employees seriously. They require a development plan, but they do not put up the dollars or training necessary to truly invest in their employees. Any development is truly self-development. Schneider also lumps large numbers of employees into the same classifications. Therefore, promotions are few, far between, and usually very overdue. Leadership development is virtually non-existant. Leaders step into their roles completely unprepared. Some grow into the roles and some do not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're pushing your best and brightest out the door by failing to provide opportunities for development and leadership. As a result, there is a growing leadership void.

    I have been working at Schneider full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is agreable to market trends and your location. They have plenty of information at your disposal to assist in your development if you are not a leader or if you work at the Corporate Offices. Vaction policy is awesome. The longer you are there the more you get. Good retirement plans and free financial advisors. Great technical development programs. Fair hiring practices. Love the ideology of the core values. Great Corporate building.

    Cons

    Spread thin in regards to responsibilities vs time to complete them. Long hours and weekends at work and home. Salary associates are required to track all time off but no compensation for the long hours you put in. If you use up your flex or vacation then you have to work an extra day. Underhanded, backstabbing mentality at the corporate and supprt levels. Healthcare benefits are horrible.No formal development for leaders at sites other than corporate headquarters. Promise of Individual Development Plans or Crosstraining but yet to see anything developed. FAVORTISM! at the local and corporate levels. If you work at another site other than corporate it is just about getting the equipment up. The company preaches Core values but the majority of associates I have met do not espouse it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide your leaders at all levels more than one venue for development. not just their supervisor. Biased opinions and lack of experience can deter the development of those lower level leaders. If your company does not want to provide professional development for their leaders then reimburse us for College classes, certifications and graduate programs that help to develop us. "Support" roles should do just that without scrutiny and ridicule. If you seek "support" to make something better or right and all you get is strife, you are less liekly to be an agent of improvement or change.

    Pros

    The people are supportive, fun and challenge you to work your hardest. They organize many events to get you out and socializing with your co workers and they are normally really fun.

    Cons

    Starting at the bottom rung of the corporate ladder in the sales role you are expecting to work longer than 8 hours a day to meet your metrics.

    Pros

    By and large, really good people who work very hard in a difficult industry. There is opportunity, but you need to be a hustler and willing to live in Green Bay.

    Cons

    The industry is really struggling and will go through some significant changes in the near future if it is to stay relevant. Driver force can be a real challenge at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out in the field and get some real perspective! The company is becoming very "inbred" with top-down descision making. Your people have the solutions. Listen to them.
