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

    Pros

    Management or (DBL) works with you, and respects you as what you are: a "professional driver" this guys are former drivers so they know what you talking about and they take care of you.

    Cons

    Nothing really. I mean like any other job. It has ups and downs, but my experience with SNI its been pretty much all ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing good, and good job putting those DBls in that office that actually know what they're doing considering all of them been on the road and actually understand you when you need something.

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

    Pros

    Decent Trucks and driver service phone number for immediate assistance with any issue

    Cons

    Drive and work unloading truck 13.5 hours in one day (and it was on an e-log). and get your pay for 108.00 and paystub that says 9.5 hours and confusing explanations on bobtail miles and loaded miles
    Doesn't matter if your getting paid hourly or by miles-if you work 13.5 hours for 108.00 that means you are working for $8.00 an hour in a state where MINIMUM WAGE is $ 9.47 an hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hourly and mileage pay should be at least an average of decent comparable truck driver pay

    Pros

    Everyday is casual day which includes flip flops, t shirts, and un combed hair.

    Cons

    Horrible Pay, short staffed, over worked, and no concept of team work. HR nightmare in operating center.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promote qualified people instead of just hiring Green Bay natives.

    Pros

    Great work environment, never bored, opportunity for large incentive checks. Success depends on your own personal commitment

    Cons

    Not very good pay if you are not getting incentive. If you can't handle a fast paced environment or difficult conversations with customers, this job is not for you

    I have been working at Schneider as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Schneider is a well known company, great to have that name recognition as well as the candidate flow that it creates, very little sourcing needed.

    Cons

    Due to volume very difficult to create a relationship with any applicant or hiring manager. Just not the style of recruiting I prefer to do.

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

    Pros

    Great pay. I average $1,200 - $1,600 gross per 5 day week. My local management is awesome. The hours aren't bad. You have the freedom to move around to a different shift if there is a spot open.

    Cons

    Support shift can sometimes take 30 minutes to answer on nights and weekends. Some local drivers slip-seat. New trucks are terrible in wet conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work in the Intermodal division. Turn off the new 4 minute engine timer, the truck has shut off on me 3 times in traffic so far.
