    There was alot of pros to working here. You can get the miles you want, it's all up to the driver. Heavy emphasis on safety company wide. Never had an issue with my dbl.

    Cons

    Min 2 hr wait before detention is paid. Never enough ppl to answer phones on 2nd, 3rd shift or most weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Need more staff on the phones please.

    Pros

    Good hours decent pay. Company with many things to offer

    Cons

    Lots of micro-managing in customer service, no freedom to run your accounts. Every little thing you do is tracked and criticized. Even people who have tons of experience are micro managed and told they aren't doing good enough. All I ever heard from manager was what I was doing wrong, then a week later had an in person meeting with customer who said we were doing amazing. Too many changes to the systems as well. Extremely stressful position as it is "hair on fire" all day every day.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing our every move, almost literally, and let us run our own desks how we see fit. The constant stress of dealing with managers laundry list of requests takes its toll. Pay better and stop micro managing...and people will stop leaving at an alarming rate. It reflects bad on you.

    Pros

    Good local discounts
    Limited travel required
    Some work at home opportunities
    Great parking
    Decent holiday pay
    Coffee reasonably priced
    Dress code not enforced

    Cons

    If you don't bleed orange you'll never promote
    Be prepared to see more managers than regular associates.
    Cubicles
    You can take lunch but it better be at your desk
    No breaks

    Advice to Management

    High turnover has worked thus far, hope the Schneider family does well with the IPO.

    I have been working at Schneider full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    4 day work week. 2-3 weeks vacation. Room for advancement. Training opportunities. Online LearnSmart access. Very smart and driven management team.

    Cons

    Long hours. Low pay. High pressure at some locations. High turnover rate in employees and management.

    Advice to Management

    If we want to be a leader in Logistics we have to pay like the leaders in Logistics. Average supervisor salary of promoted from within personnel is $8-$10K less than industry standards.
    Supervisor staff is stretched very thin and under appreciated. Support those you have instead of chasing them away.

    Pros

    Safety . They call your name instead of number. Respect. Very careful driver. Once you set up NAT correctly, you will get miles.

    Cons

    60mph limited. Slow computer system in truck. Sometimes you need waiting up to 30mins in truck to set up a NAT.

    Pros

    They will get you home when you want.

    Cons

    Very inconsistent with miles. Many times you get a preloaded assignment to find out that it is a live load when you get there. Or vice versa. Then you have to wait forever for them to change tasks. Detention pay is horrible, which happens alot. Sign on bonuses​ are pointless, they are taxed at 40%. Don't let them fool you. I have a perfect driving record, but was let go because someone reported me doing a legal u-turn at an intersection. This is a day after I reported that I had to go to emergency room for shingles which I had been working with for 4 days without any meds. Coincidence?, I think not. By the way, they will try to prevent you from getting quarter bonuses, I have an inside source that says they get incentives for keeping drivers under a certain criteria. Watch out, and protect yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being selfish and realize that without drivers , you have no business. Pay us what we deserve. If you have not been a driver then you have no business being a driver manager.
