Former Employee - Driver Business Leader in Dallas, TX
Former Employee - Driver Business Leader in Dallas, TX

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

Pros

After having this job, everything else I will do seems easy! Easy to network with individuals across the company.

Cons

Huge work load, poor management and support at Dallas OC, no work/life balance, accountabilities include things that you can't control, requests are never followed up with, Oracle based software is not user friendly, no one that works in the division cares about anything but themselves (not a team environment)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire all management at the Dallas, TX division and get someone that actually can lead people. OM has a bad attitude/hard to get along with and will never step in to assist when short staffed; DM lacks knowledge on the software and never keeps his word on anything.

    I worked at Schneider full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Newer equipment for the most part

    Cons

    Poor management- I only had one good dbl (driver business leader) in the seven years I was with Schneider. The worst one was when I was on dedicated Jc penney in Forest Park Ga. She was so dumb she didn't even know it. I proved it to her on several occasions
    Poor pay due to poor management- Can't make money if truck isn't moving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some people ie, dbls that know more about trucking than we are allowed to drive 11 hrs per day in a 14 hr period. My dbl once told me that I was idling my truck to much. I told her it was 90 degrees. She told me to strip naked if i had too. I think Schneider needs some real leaders. Ones that lead by example. Let Heather get her sorry fat butt in truck and strip naked for a week and not
    Idle in the summer. Install apu's on trucks if your so concerned with idle time

    I worked at Schneider full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Loved my first 5 years there... the last 5 years were awful and wiped out the positive experience gained in the first 5.

    Cons

    Cliques. If you weren't in one... you didn't exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get all of your managers in line with your advertised culture.
