  2. Overall an average truck driving company that expects nothing less than 100% safety at all times.

    Former Employee - Yard Spotter in McCalla, AL

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

    Pros

    The DBLs actually do remember your name and face and care about your personal situations.

    Cons

    The pay was above average but other spotters with less experience were started out with higher pay than me and would do way less work and would get rewarded with overtime. Come a year after working there instead of getting a raise that would put me up to par I was given the shaft.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give better pay raises, They were crap. .10/ hour raise after a year was laughable

    Former Employee - Refional Driver in Columbus, OH

    I worked at Schneider (less than a year)

    Pros

    * Worked with me on scheduling conflicts.
    * No slip seating
    * Decent facilities.
    * Allowed me, a fairly new driver at the time, to gain valuable experience, while knowing I had someone with years of experience just a phone call away.

    Cons

    This is a B-I-G company, and as such, suffers from some of the impersonal characteristics ALL big companies suffer from; you never forget you are a number in their system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a few bucks to have trucks scrubbed out before assigning them to a driver. When I first got assigned my truck, I spent four hours degreasing door panels, dash, steering wheel, cabinets, walls, storage bins... at least, I hope it was just grease; kind of a bad first impression if you think about it.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere for the most part, you do have your general office chatter and politics like any other office, but if you can make a few friends and focus on your job its a great place to work. You interact with teams of many different departments to get situations resolved. There's much knowledge to be gained both for the industry and how to make your job easier by taking notes.

    Cons

    Office Politics, that's about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Send your managers to a Leadership class so they can utilize actual leadership skills.

    Pros

    Core values that all associates are held to.

    Corporate bureaucracy can over rule logic. Support shift is painful to deal with.

    Former Employee - Driver Business Leader in Indianapolis, IN

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

    Pros

    Great work environment in the office, people help each other out, function as a team, are not selfish. Management lets people run their own operations and does not micro-manage or meddle where they don't need to. People want to get things done and solve any problems that come up to help drivers or customers

    Cons

    I don't think that upper management sought out advice from lower level employees that could have made a positive impact on the way the company operated. It was not that they totally discounted what lower level employees did, but I did not see an atmosphere of continuous improvement. It was somewhat stagnant. Also in Indy there weren't many opportunities to advance.

    Former Intern - Finance Intern in Green Bay, WI
    Former Intern - Finance Intern in Green Bay, WI

    I worked at Schneider as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Company sticks to its core values. Employees are very helpful to those who are just starting out. Given the ability to speak with employees in other departments to get a better understanding of different aspects of the business

    Cons

    Job can be rather boring as the same thing is done day after day. No plan is established to moving from an intern to a full time employee when schooling is complete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Further develop your internship program. Currently it is just cheap labor for doing repetitive jobs.
