    Pros

    Great place to get your blood pressure raised.Great place to work on anger management.

    Cons

    poor pay average .34 cent per mile. Poor maintenance on trucks ,Driver Business Leaders are worthless ,2nd and 3rd shift support are worthless, Schneider emergency maintenance is a joke. Company needs an overhaul from the top down.Yes this includes the CEO.Waste money on worthless stuff. 60 mph trucks. You are just a number. You will be lied to. No accountability for load planners . Drivers blamed for a lot of things that are not their fault in wrecks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run local trucks on 200 miles or less trips. 2nd shift support and first need to communicate. Keep regional drivers in their regions .Pay higher pay for drivers who travel up in to the North East. Turn all trucks to 65 mph. This will not get worse fuel mileage. You are stupid if you think so.Watch you tube videos.10 mpg with trucks running 65-68 mph. Freightliner cascadias.It is a shame I have drove for over 15 yrs now and have never been treated so bad by a company. Maintenance is a joke. trucks not completely service correctly.Items not repaired. No checks and balances.

    Pros

    Great work environment, never bored, opportunity for large incentive checks. Success depends on your own personal commitment

    Cons

    Not very good pay if you are not getting incentive. If you can't handle a fast paced environment or difficult conversations with customers, this job is not for you

    I have been working at Schneider as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Schneider is a well known company, great to have that name recognition as well as the candidate flow that it creates, very little sourcing needed.

    Cons

    Due to volume very difficult to create a relationship with any applicant or hiring manager. Just not the style of recruiting I prefer to do.

    Pros

    Pay is decent I guess, work schedule is nice and that is where the pros stop if you ask me

    Cons

    The slip seating, (having to wait for a truck to start your day) the optimiser (being dispatched by a computer program instead of a live person), and I can't forget about the truck's (wet roads= no traction because they are automatic, some have tag axles).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why say anything, they know everything because they are college educated

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

    Pros

    Great work environment in the office, people help each other out, function as a team, are not selfish. Management lets people run their own operations and does not micro-manage or meddle where they don't need to. People want to get things done and solve any problems that come up to help drivers or customers

    Cons

    I don't think that upper management sought out advice from lower level employees that could have made a positive impact on the way the company operated. It was not that they totally discounted what lower level employees did, but I did not see an atmosphere of continuous improvement. It was somewhat stagnant. Also in Indy there weren't many opportunities to advance.

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

    Pros

    Great pay. I average $1,200 - $1,600 gross per 5 day week. My local management is awesome. The hours aren't bad. You have the freedom to move around to a different shift if there is a spot open.

    Cons

    Support shift can sometimes take 30 minutes to answer on nights and weekends. Some local drivers slip-seat. New trucks are terrible in wet conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work in the Intermodal division. Turn off the new 4 minute engine timer, the truck has shut off on me 3 times in traffic so far.

    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.
