    I have been working at Schneider full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great starter company for new truck drivers. Very safety orientied and pay is competitive as far as mega companies go. Great benefits for the family. Huge network of operating centers and drop lots

    Cons

    Some safety functions are overkill. Better pay and diversification of driving opportunities is desperately needed.

    Advice to Management

    Train the newer drivers better. Do not micromanage the veterans add more local opportunities and better pay for seasoned drivers.

    I have been working at Schneider full-time

    Pros

    Some management is good, but I suppose you'll find bad managers everywhere. Support shift is more like a family than first shift. Better training too.

    Cons

    Stressful, no clear lines about what you can and cannot do in terms of leadership. Micro managing even after you've proved yourself time and time again, and the pay is nice but not for everything you're expected to do.

    Advice to Management

    Trust in your associates more. There is a complicated interview and training process for a reason. Let them grow.
