    I have been working at Schneider full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My supervisors are supportive and helpful. I feel like I work hard and that my work is appreciated. It can be stressful but any worthwhile job is.

    Cons

    I am not thrilled with the changing of the insurance policy. I like having insurance but I found the contributions to our HSA helpful and they are no longer doing that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish the cafeteria had more healthful food. It is all very processed and does not provide energy for working. I think it would be easy to have more choices that are nutritious and taste good.

    I worked at Schneider full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working with dbls was easy and efficient. they were also friendly. they always knew it was important to have time off.

    Cons

    Time off was very scarce due to my time of year working there. pay was also low and it always feels like youre just a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    raise pay for lower paid drivers at least every 3 months. Benfits can be better.

    Pros

    They offer the opportunity to excel in your role with clear direction. Depending on the role, work/life balance can vary.

    Cons

    Very difficult to effect organizational change and the company is adverse to large organizational risks. If you want a fast growing company, Schneider is not it.

    I worked at Schneider full-time

    Pros

    They are very understanding especially with new drivers. they take into consideration the problems you report on the highways and so forth when they plan the loads for you.

    Cons

    not too much home time but that happens with just about any company but other than that I have no complaints about them

    I have been working at Schneider full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    stable company that has been around for a long time, the benefits are good and the people are very nice. They give plenty of time off and a good work - life balance. Management allows for people to make decisions.

    Cons

    Nothing you have done before you started at Schneider counts as experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to differentiate between the people who work hard and deserve a promotion and the ones who network well but do not have a good work ethic. Be careful not to discount experience as an asset.

    I worked at Schneider full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good routes, excellent home time.

    Cons

    Just like every other company, many of the DBL's have no idea what's going on, and unless you keep on them, are of little help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before sending out a job, make sure it can actually be done, so I don't sit for hours on / off the phone trying to figure out what to do.

    I have been working at Schneider full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are so many people who have grown up with the company and truly bleed orange.

    Cons

    There are so many people who have grown up with the company and feel ideas tend to get muddled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When making organizational changes, its important to pay attention to the employees and customers. To help employees grow, its important to have some consistency. 8 leaders in less than a year in a half is exhausting.
