    Pros

    Schneider is a fast-paced, fun office. Filled with a young, ambitious team of commission-driven sales associates, the office somehow balances a great mix of competition and positivity.

    Cons

    The large sections of the company haven't found a successful way to work with each other. Their asset, brokerage, intermodal, warehousing, and bulk divisions tend to compete against each other rather than provide an all-in service to their customers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote the optimistic culture by "trimming the fat" often. It's obvious early on who will mesh well with the company and who want. Management does a great job of making quick decisions by firing people who could compromise the friendly atmosphere in the office.

    Pros

    -great atmosphere
    -benefits

    -managers are all best friends which makes work harder for everyone since you have to be part of the "clique" to make it at the company
    -a lot of micromanaging
    -making excessive calls each day wears you out which doesn't make fun

    Advice to Management

    Less micromanaging with managers.

    Pros

    You get to set your own schedule day in and day out so long as you're hitting your monthly quota.

    Cons

    It's sales, you can have the roller coaster of gaining/losing customers.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. They are there to help you and receive bonuses off the company hitting their revenue goals.

    Pros

    Friendly DAY staff
    Good equipment
    Reasonable schedule (I am regional driver and am out 11 days and in for 3 off - I am almost on time coming home 90% of the time, even if I am late its its by 1 day and they let you come back 3 days later)

    Cons

    Slightly low pay but they are increasing it to match industry
    Support shift is horrible (both 2nd and 3rd), pretty much useless
    Cost of comfort comes before driver comfort
    New drivers get the cheap freight
    Schneider has a poor view from other companies out there. Even if you are experienced and you start backing up near another driver, they may get nervous and harass you. (I would say you should just hit their chrome polished truck anyways if they do that)

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO YOUR DRIVERS AND QUIT PUTTING THE COST OF COMFORT BEFORE THE NEEDS OF YOUR DRIVERS! You guys who make these decisions need to come out and drive during the extreme heat of summer or the cold of winter and see what its like when we cannot idle to keep cool or warm.
