    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.

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

    Pros

    They always take care of you and get any issues worked out. They have very clean and new trucks and equipment. Very nice terminals and facilities available are much nicer than most other companies.

    Cons

    Long waits on the phone most of the time. A lot of live load freight waiting to be loaded and unloaded.

    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.
