Schneider – Why Work For Us?

Schneider National over the years

Schneider delivers.

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.

How we operate 

Schneider is built to last. We remain stable and strong because we conduct our business with the utmost respect for our associates, our customers and the world around us.

  • We offer our associates competitive pay and comprehensive benefits, challenge them to follow career paths that excite them and celebrate victories with them. 
  • We promise our customers honesty, integrity and an unwavering commitment to get the job done right. 
  • We respect the world around us by operating in an environmentally-friendly manner. We are continually striving to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve fuel efficiency. 

Schneider is an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate in hiring, or in any other employment related decision, on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, age, gender, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status or any other classification protected by law.

Schneider is also proud to be ISO 9002 certified. ISO 9000 is a series of international standards for quality assurance systems. Basically, it means that Schneider is officially considered a world-class organization.

Where we’re located 

Schneider operates 168 facilities worldwide (160 in the US, 5 in Canada, 1 in Mexico and 2 in China).  The biggest is our corporate headquarters in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

We genuinely care about your safety and the safety of those on the road with you. Nothing we do is worth hurting ourselves or others.

“I work with some good people here who have drivers’ interests at heart. And their motto of ‘Safety First and Always’ has resonated with me each and every day since I started.” - Bob Wyatt, OTR driver

Upgrade to independence.

As an owner-operator with Schneider, you’ll have the freedom of running your own business, plus the backing of large, stable company. 

Steady Freight

Schneider owner-operators have exclusive access to one of the largest freight bases in the industry. For those on the Percentage Lease, it means you have plenty of options to choose from so you can make the decisions that are best for your business. For those on the Mileage Lease, it means we will keep you moving, ensuring optimum utilization.

“You control your own destiny. If you can’t make any money, it’s something you’re doing wrong or you’re in a bad area. If you’re in a bad area, go through a hot spot, you’ll find some freight, then go back home. You really do control your own destiny.” -Christopher Powell, Van Owner-Operator

Business Consulting Services

At Schneider, we make it our business to help your business succeed. That’s why we provide business consulting services through ATBS. They’ll help with taxes, accounting, bookkeeping and more. These services are free to Van Truckload and Tanker owner-operators for the first six months of your lease.

Maximum Purchase Power

Save on operating expenses with Schneider’s Purchase Power Program. In fuel alone, you can save up to $.10 per gallon at the pump through negotiated truck stop chains — plus a supplemental $.10 discount on fuel purchased in California, Oregon, Arizona and Washington — in addition to our fuel surcharge program. You’ll also get discounts on tractors, tires, insurance, maintenance and more.

CSA-Compliant Carrier

Protect your livelihood and save DOT inspection time by leasing with a CSA-compliant carrier. We will conduct a free inspection of your tractor before you start, followed by quarterly inspections to help prevent violations and ensure your equipment stays in safe condition.

Reliable Financing

In this tight credit environment, Schneider Finance offers low or no money down programs to help you lease or purchase a truck spec'd for both Van and Tanker.

Be your own boss and find a lease opportunity near you.

The opportunities are endless.

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.

“Our mission is to provide state-of-the-art shops, technology and ongoing training to allow associates to be the best they can be. Maintenance associates play a vital role in the success of our company. A core principle is to provide them what they need to get the job done right and ensure they have the support, resources and respect they have earned and deserve.” - Rob Reich, Vice President, Schneider Maintenance

    Fast paced, lots of opportunities to move around. Management (where I work, anyways) listens to "the trenches" when it comes to process improvement, allowing ambitious associates to cultivate a portfolio of effective "cost-savings" decisions. Pay is OK if you're younger or have minimal debt/responsibility.

    I also really like the approachability of middle and upper management where I work. They come to us regularly for insight into an issue, we can go to them for advice/resources and it allows us as a unit to effectively service our customer (and that makes everyone's lives easier).

    Resources to do my job are at most times more-than-adequate. It is not difficult to report an IT/software issue and have the situation rectified or at least made visible to the owning parties. Profit sharing is cool (I'd rather have OT). Benefits exist.... I've had better and had far worse so I can't bash too hard.


    Extremely clique-y. You could have the reasoning capacity of a fern, but if your manager likes you; you don't have to worry and they'll even stick up for you when you fail miserably at your job and are being called out on it regularly by coworkers and customers.

    If you're the 'ambitious associate' I mentioned in Pros, guess what? You get to roll out pilot programs, you're the one tasked to fit in extra 'projects' into an already ridiculously busy day. Corporate policy (like no OT) means you get to figure out how 10 hours of work turns into an 8 hour day and make all parties involved happy. Often, I feel as though I made a huge mistake in being good at my job. If I did the bare minimum and just met my metrics and didn't apply any critical thinking skills; I could be making just as much money but with half the stress involved.

    No formalized training for office associates, you get to learn on the fly and all through "Tribal knowledge" and if that doesn't line up with "the process" you will hear about it (Even though it's what everyone else does). Basically, you learn when you mess up, which can be a traumatic/uncomfortable experience for some. This is even worse on the temps, who get maybe a few hours' of instruction on a mind-numbing task, and are set up to do that indefinitely until they quit, the manager asks for them to be reassigned, they're hired FT (which seems to be that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for most temps even though the staffer, Kelly Services boasts something like 90% FT placement of temps) or they are just outright terminated through the staffer. I've befriended several temps who, based on experience (upwards of a year for many) and feedback in interviews were confident of a job offer and told they fit the bill, BUT oh! Turns out they offered that job to a preexisting Full-timer who was just tired of their current position! Doesn't matter what they do or do not know about the role; if they have any credibility with the group making the hiring decision, they're in and the temp is soon thereafter notified that their contract with Schneider is slated to end soon thereafter. I see it as a bit of a slap in the face, since many temps bust their butts to stand out and get hired on.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the work your temps do and identify your in-house problem-children and deal accordingly... You folks go through temps like nobody's business.. maybe have the courage to identify and eliminate/encourage reassignment to associates that cause issues/frustrations with customers and teammates.. I am regularly amazed by the work ethic/character of a temp versus a FT employee... You have a bunch of tenured associates who have been doing basically the same thing for 10 years and don't care or don't bother to do you not notice that? I don't remember "Just getting by" being a part of the Mission statement or Core Values.

    Offer some incentive to the innovate! If I save you x amount of dollars per day/load on identifying a process improvement, why can I not be compensated (x-5) or something? I feel like I am in a position that my decisions and process steps take a direct role in saving/losing money for a customer or the company... Critical thinking skills apply! Something that is in hot demand in all fields! Why is it I cannot be more adequately/directly recognized/rewarded for my efforts, while, for example a similarly placed associate who does the bare minimum gets the same cut as me. They benefit from the actions of the people you should want at your company, while making poor decisions and increasing the workload for associates that have a measure of efficacy in resolving situations plus inducing a customer to associate us with crappy/ineffectual service.

    I am giving a low rating on "Culture and Values" as I think you fail miserably at practicing what you preach in the office setting. The way the "respect for all" value often usurps the values of "integrity in every action" and "excellence in what we do" is alarming. Quite frankly, at a ground level, "respect for all" is not exhibited. Integrity is not in every action as demonstrated in my previous statements about your tenured associates that just don't care or don't bother to care.
    Yet if someone is called out on [more or less] failing the "integrity" and "excellence" values and are called out on it by coworkers (because it duplicates work, causes rework or creates a whole new situation) they are entitled to say their "respect" is violated. Stop playing favorites.

    Keep up the great accessibility/comm flow of management-CS ... It's needed for us 'critical thinkers'... we can't put the puzzle together without us each bringing our pieces!

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Schneider (Green Bay, WI) in May 2015.


    Initial phone interview, then in-person 3-step interview. I arrived on site and spoke with two managers who asked a series of behavioral based questions. Then I spoke with another gentleman who was higher up in the company. I was asked more broad questions about my experience and what I was looking for. Finally I had a chance to sit on the sales floor and observe day-to-day operations.
