    I have been working at Schneider full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Independence when you want it. Support from day shift DBL is good. Usually trucks are decent. Home time is good if you have a DBL on your side.

    Cons

    Dealing with hold times and people on second and third shift that have never been in a truck before. You will be gone from family and friends.

    Advice to Management

    Remember we are people too and our job is to drive not sit and wait.

    Pros

    Young casual office with great employees. Everyone for the most part is very willing to help and management is there to help you succeed if you are willing to put in the work.

    Cons

    A lot of cold calling so if you do not like cold calling or putting in the effort to generate leads, the job is not for you

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

    Pros

    Great company to work for and great leadership. They always take care of you especially when you need it.

    Cons

    Sometimes it takes a while to get a hold of your DBL but there's always a good reason when it is that way. In the end they still make sure you have what you need to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Be more understanding of the driver in their situation.

    Pros

    Schneider has good benefits and work / life balance.

    I have been working at Schneider full-time

    Pros

    Fun and fast pace environment. Friendly, team, and competitive place. Has everything you want and need right there in the corporate building. Dining cafeteria, fitness center, covered parking.

    Cons

    none at the moment as of now the management team are friendly. They are helpful, you could say a con would be it's base salary being $35K but that's because you get commission.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good manager and support team

    Cons

    Boring job, same thing everyday of calling people and then getting leads and sending them off to the sellers. The sellers get to make all the big money and us here get a measly 30-60 dollars per lead only.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to speak with and help out the lower level employees instead of just collaborating between one another.
