    Pros

    My management team, though young, was very candid and transparent. They made the experience tolerable

    Cons

    Like a lot of entry level sales jobs, it was like working in a frat house at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to mature and figure it out. You will keep growing.

    DBL and her manager was not interested in the trucker's safety just keeping the truck moving. No matter what.

    Listen to your truck drivers

    Pros

    Safety! Great safety training for new drivers and they hire recent grads with no other experience. Decent equipment, well maintained.

    Cons

    Advertised $57,000 position, I was averaging about $47k per year for the first 6 months and now $39k per year in my second 6 months. They have major problems in logistics. They are trying to grow and hire new drivers but they can't manage keeping us busy so more drivers just means less $ and more waiting time for the rest of us. I am available for duty, I am just left waiting for them to find me an assignment all the time or the next assignment is already up but for a full day later. Too many 1/2 days and drive hours left on the clock due to poor scheduling.
         No perks in Schneider equipment!!! No APUs, no climate control! Yes they do have heat but in hot weather, do not expect to sleep comfortable. Truck idle is computer controlled so you would have to stay up all night in the drivers seat to get cooled off.

    Advice to Management

    Use your best load planner(s) to train the new people and work with them to get better on an ongoing basis. Why are DBLs sending out messages almost daily that they are shorthanded today?

    Pretty good as a dedicated home daily driver.

    Pros

    Health Insurance is the biggest pro. On par with industry standard for premiums with above average benefits. They care about drivers health In that aspect. You also get paid what you earn.

    Cons

    No holiday pay for local drivers. idle percentages too low for certain accounts, especially for those that still sleep In their trucks.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your local drivers holiday pay if the account does not work. We're forced a day off which takes money out of our pockets.

    Pros

    Several solutions. They do have some very good people that work their.

    Cons

    Leadership in vital roles are more consumed with themselves than supporting employees or servicing customers. Severely lacking in Integrity. Does not value its customers or employees. Not willing to hold anyone accountable. Run from this company unless you want a short term role or a resume building role.

    Advice to Management

    Sooner or later you will realize that customers are important and servicing their needs is how a company grows. It is not all about what Schneider wants.

    Pros

    Great company with benefits to start your career in the trucking industry. They train new hires and reimburse your trucking school cost up to a certain amount. Great group of people to work with.

    Cons

    Pays little compared to other companies. Get your experience here and run. Good chance you can probably find better pay elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay and you may decrease your turnaround rate.

    Pros

    They have a gym and cafeteria in the corporate building.

    Cons

    Very stressful-customer service reps work so very hard and have so much put on their plate...the pay is not worth the stress. They make you book way over our load capacity and fail loads left and right. Phones are ringing off the hook with customers waiting to scream at you. You're constantly being micromanaged. Almost impossible to take vacation unless you asked for it 6 months in advance. Random "customer service freezes" where you aren't allowed to apply for any other roles within the company. May-September freeze happening right now.

    Advice to Management

    Get real
