Schneider hauls freight and lots of it. In fact, our drivers move nearly 11,000 loads each day. We carry merchandise and materials for two-thirds of the Fortune 500 companies — meaning we have a direct impact on the economy. If our trucks stopped moving, the loads wouldn’t be delivered. And if you went to the store to pick something up, chances are it wouldn’t be there. Bottom line: We keep the country moving and deliver the standard of living you’ve come to expect.

Schneider has nearly 10,000 tractors in its fleet. Needless to say, it takes one skilled team of mechanics to keep all those vehicles out on the road.
We're always looking for the most knowledgeable, professional mechanics to keep our equipment in top working order. Without our maintenance crew, the trucks would stop running. And if the trucks stop running, loads don't get delivered and the economy slows down. Bottom line: we need diesel mechanics like you to keep the country moving.

Maintenance associates play a vital role in the success of our company.

You have to be an expert at dealing with cold calls and rejection the majority of the time.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied online – interviewed at Schneider in February 2015.Interview Details
First was an initial phone interview with HR (lasted 30 min), second was another phone interview with hiring manager (lasted 45 min) and third was a face-to-face interview with three individuals at once (lasted about an hour).
Everyone has their own interviewing process but the questions asked didn't really pertain to the job nor how my past experiences can contribute to the position. The questions were fairly easy but I was asked multiple at the same time. It seemed like they were trying to intimidate me and make me feel uncomfortable (most likely to see how I respond). At one point the interviewer said (kind of laughing) I'm playing stump the interviewer. I left this interview thinking that this might not be a place I want to work.No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
