    stable work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Green Bay, WI

    Prosstable 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.

    ConsNothing you have done before you started at Schneider counts as experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry 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.

    good company to start driving for to gain experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey 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.

    Consnot too much home time but that happens with just about any company but other than that I have no complaints about them

    Not bad, but not great... above the average

    Truck Driver (Former Employee) Edwardsville, IL

    ProsGood routes, excellent home time.

    ConsJust 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 Senior ManagementBefore 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.

    Entry Level - Carrier Sales Executive

    Carrier Sales Executive (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat base salary for a sales based position straight out of college. Incentive structure makes it worth putting in extra hours.

    ConsIncentives really aren't that great if you're carrier sales. They make it sound like a great deal, but really you can work your fingers to the bone only to make a few extra pennies. Base salary barely covers living expenses in Chicago.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time developing your new people, but don't lose sight of the people who have been around for a while. We may have been doing good before, but if we're struggling take a minute to see what's going on instead of threatening our jobs.

    Safety First and Always

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen 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.

    It's been my best OTR job.

    Truck Driver (Current Employee) Green Bay, WI

    ProsI work as an owner operator under the Choice program. Being able to book my own loads has made all the difference in my work experience. The control that I have over my schedule has eliminated a lot of distractions, making me a safer and smarter driver.

    ConsI really can't find anything to fault Schneider with. I don't have the same constraints that company drivers deal with. As long as my job is done safely and legally, I'm pretty much free to do as I please.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    IT Contractor

    IT Contractor (Former Employee) Green Bay, WI

    ProsI worked with great people, great salary and I had very convenient hours!
    The job itself was just data entry, however was a great experience!

    ConsThe job itself was not at all fun, because I just copied and pasted.
    I felt like I was being over payed for what I was doing.
    It was also only a temporary job
