    Great training willing to work with you to make you a good safe driver well maintained equipment

    Cons

    Forced dispatch, low pay, dbl's learning job do not always give you the right advise. Only stay to learn and get your time in to get a better paying job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay you employees what they are worth don't tell them the area is soft and there will be more freight soon

    Former Employee - Yard Spotter in McCalla, AL

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

    Pros

    The DBLs actually do remember your name and face and care about your personal situations.

    Cons

    The pay was above average but other spotters with less experience were started out with higher pay than me and would do way less work and would get rewarded with overtime. Come a year after working there instead of getting a raise that would put me up to par I was given the shaft.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give better pay raises, They were crap. .10/ hour raise after a year was laughable

    Pros

    they had good facilities. good access to company personal. nice driver areas at all termails. clean showers. free wifi.

    Cons

    the lease purchase is a joke, dispatch was a joke as well. they run u good for a while, then leave you setting til u go broke. and if u deliver early the driver gets in trouble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better dispacth, better commucation with the driver. be more clear on loads. and dont count against the driver for being earlier on a load.
