    Pros

    If your somebody looking to make money to support your family, Schneider pays better than most warehouses. Some associates are amazing to work with. The job will keep you busy and if you want to lose weight or get in shape Schneider is the place to be.

    Cons

    Managers are often oblivious to what is going on the dock. Hard to transfer to different positions because of upper management. It took 2 1/2 years to get a raise. Managers are constantly changing the rules for their benefit, they also completely ignored our concerns while working in the flow department, some employees are protected due to a favoritism issue, a lot of employees get away with talking, driving equipment recklessly, and other factors that make this job really difficult to work.

    Advice to Management

    Attitude reflects leadership. Being honest and upfront to the workers and the relationship will translate into better results. Be respectful towards the loaders and unloaders whom at times will work in a trailer or container that ranges from temperatures of freezing in the negatives to 100 + with the index, these are human beings not robots.

    Pros

    It's a trucking company. That's it.

    Cons

    Really bad place. One week OTR that is only 4 days driving one third the time

    Advice to Management

    Give your new drivers one month OTR with a trainer. You're ETAs combined with minimal training going to get people killed. So glad I survived and left.

    Pros

    You get paid weekly 14.55 a hour starting off as a order filler.

    Cons

    You order fill with a gun to your head for your 10 hour shift. It's all about going fast all shift. They constantly monitor your speed and will let you know about it. They demand having the fastest order fillers in the world and will put a gun to your head to make it happen. The problem is they pay you 14.55 an hour to do it. Working at a fast forward pace for 10 hours for 14.55 is not worth it to me. You also have to be a custodian also. They fired the custodians and added their former duties to the order fillers. Too bad they didn't add to our pay. The place has insane turnover because of their gun to your head mentality. There are some people who can accept it and do it. They hire thousands of people just to find that one person crazy enough to work that hard for that low pay. They always tell you to be safe but how can you when you have to do everything so fast for 10 hours. If it's hot outside it is a lot hotter inside. You drive a PE electric pallet jack to order fill with. You bring 1 cart with you. They will expect you to load that one cart up to 10 feet high. Most of the workers are cool but you will hardly get to talk to them. Every Thu. they will make you sweep under the racks for a hour before you get to leave. After your 5th week there you will get written up for not going fast. After 2 weeks of not going as fast as they want you will be fired. Order filling, loading and unloading trucks is miserable at Schneider Logistics in Elwood, IL.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make it about how fast you go but make it about getting the job done.
