    Pros

    Recent grad, decent benefits, OTR experience, atlanta crew was very good.

    Cons

    I was on a jcpenny dedicated account when I was asked to start my sleeper birth time while I was at a shipper to do a run dispatch wanted me to do that was a eight hour run. I said no.If u speak up there is a problem. No paid days off sick holidays personal but want to micro manage you. Detention slavery wages sit four hours for 20$. All dispatch should be on one accord. I recently resigned. Since I've been on this jcpenny account my check has been incorrect. One week I didn't even get paid. That's when it's time to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better leadership practice what u preach as far as safety. Pay needs to be better.

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

    Pros

    Good Pay, good Equipment, Lots Of loads. $50.5 Load Pay + 0,42c a Mile for experinced drivers. You can average $300/day and work 6 days of you choose to do so and have hours to run. Supposedly 75% drop and hook, but depending on your start time, that can go down to %50.

    Cons

    Management and support shift. Bad dispatch. Appointment times not honored because dispatchers plan your day bad sometimes. Local dispatch can mess your day up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dispatch according to day, traffic patterns, Rush hours, and give us reasonable time to get to hour appointmens. Specially if requires live loads and unloads.

    Former Employee - Finance Intern in Green Bay, WI
    Former Employee - Finance Intern in Green Bay, WI

    I worked at Schneider as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Company sticks to its core values. Employees are very helpful to those who are just starting out. Given the ability to speak with employees in other departments to get a better understanding of different aspects of the business

    Cons

    Job can be rather boring as the same thing is done day after day. No plan is established to moving from an intern to a full time employee when schooling is complete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Further develop your internship program. Currently it is just cheap labor for doing repetitive jobs.

    I worked at Schneider full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable job, decent pay (worked in office), enjoyed the people on my team

    Cons

    I worked in support shift and left because I couldnt believe the lack of communication between departments and shifts so when 1st shift was done and there was a problem a driver had...you looked terrible because you had no idea what was happening. The lack of urgency to help the drivers blew my mind. my previous job before that...you would've been fired having drivers wait so long on hold. i wouldve never left my previous job but everyone thinks its a coveted office job...so i thought it was going to be an opportunity of a lifetime. When earlier shifts tell a driver to start his day and go on in for midnight or middle of the night and the place isn't actually open...I felt absolutely terrible.

    people fail to remember that the drivers are the MOST IMPORTANT part of the company. without them, there is nothing. no company or cushy office jobs. I left because of this and went to a different trucking company who saw the importance of urgency so the drivers can make money. I know a lot of drivers hated calling support shift because our hands were tied and I understand why but it makes it hard when you care so much and feel terrible after your phone call but other people give us a bad rap.

    Bottom line...everyone needs to respect the drivers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Same as above...Also to recognize people for their work they do.
