    Cons

    Low pay, as with all OTR jobs no work-life balance, more concerned with office workers than drivers, no APUs freeze in winter boil in summer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look out for your drivers they make the money that you pay to yourselves and the office

    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

    run your own show on choice program , make as much as you are willing to work for, have plenty of good paying freight

    Cons

    must be diligent in what you do , spend hours on load board learning freight lanes and customers , but well worth the effort if willing to work hard

    Former Employee - Support Shift Representative
    Former Employee - Support Shift Representative

    I worked at Schneider full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable job, decent pay (worked in office), enjoyed the people on my team

    Cons

    I worked in support shift and left because I couldnt believe the lack of communication between departments and shifts so when 1st shift was done and there was a problem a driver had...you looked terrible because you had no idea what was happening. The lack of urgency to help the drivers blew my mind. my previous job before that...you would've been fired having drivers wait so long on hold. i wouldve never left my previous job but everyone thinks its a coveted office job...so i thought it was going to be an opportunity of a lifetime. When earlier shifts tell a driver to start his day and go on in for midnight or middle of the night and the place isn't actually open...I felt absolutely terrible.

    people fail to remember that the drivers are the MOST IMPORTANT part of the company. without them, there is nothing. no company or cushy office jobs. I left because of this and went to a different trucking company who saw the importance of urgency so the drivers can make money. I know a lot of drivers hated calling support shift because our hands were tied and I understand why but it makes it hard when you care so much and feel terrible after your phone call but other people give us a bad rap.

    Bottom line...everyone needs to respect the drivers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Same as above...Also to recognize people for their work they do.

    I have been working at Schneider full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always pay on time, good benefits, good training, consistent work. Hard work is rewarded and recognized, and my leadership team knows me by my first name.

    Cons

    Support shift (second and third shifts), have very little decision making power, or will to make decisions. Keep your dispatchers cell number handy. Maintenance is slow pretty much everywhere. Be prepared to sit/layover if you have anything remotely serious wrong with your truck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've spent hours on the side of the road, and days at operating center maintenance facilities. We need to speed up this process. I see improvements everywhere in the company, but maintenance seems to have slowed to a crawl. I used to love the Evergreen site in Alabama...they did a quick, great job.

    Former Employee - Finance Intern in Green Bay, WI
    Former Employee - Finance Intern in Green Bay, WI

    I worked at Schneider as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Company sticks to its core values. Employees are very helpful to those who are just starting out. Given the ability to speak with employees in other departments to get a better understanding of different aspects of the business

    Cons

    Job can be rather boring as the same thing is done day after day. No plan is established to moving from an intern to a full time employee when schooling is complete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Further develop your internship program. Currently it is just cheap labor for doing repetitive jobs.
