Pros

Some good people have stayed and have not left yet. A lot of opportunities to advance or move around if you are working in Green Bay or willing to relocate to Green Bay.The corporate center is very nice.

Cons

High turnover rate of both leaders and drivers. Not a whole lot of opportunity to advance if you are in the field, unless you are willing to relocate. I have never worked for a company before where I have seen so many well paid leaders give notice and resign. Pretty scary feeling when you think about which employer you would like to remain for retirement.

For the drivers, they have the strangest quarterly bonus program. Out of route has to be less than 2% and not a lot of clear answers in this area. A lot of grey area. If your out of route is 2.5%, there is a great chance as a driver you will not make bonus. Every driver has a scorecard for performance in areas such as out of route, safety and a couple more areas. This bonus program is extremely complicated. It almost feels like you are looking at a drivers report card in high school. No over exaggeration when I say this.

Advice to Management

A lot of potential. A lot of people are quitting their leaders here, not their jobs.

    Pros

    The benefits of working at Schneider are a relaxed environment in the freight game. Decent young culture and a good spot to learn sales basics. Opportunity to make big checks if you can land good accounts.

    Cons

    The problem with Schneider is there is no upward growth. You need to spend 4 years as a low rung sales rep in order to "make it" to an inside sales lead. Management puts no value in rep development or churn metrics. The worst part of the job is the constant short sighted views of management, they don't value talent.

    Advice to Management

    Invest and keep your talent that thinks at a higher level to build a better management team.

  2. Good company but no advancement if you're in the field

    Pros

    Good people. Good culture. 401k match. Good work/life balance. No micromanagement. Foster empowerment.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunities if you work in a field office unless you are willing to move to Green Bay. Poor bonus structure.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people in the field.
