    Pros

    Safety is a high priority. Great training program.

    Cons

    Schneider governs the trucks at 63 mph. They also track if you push the accelerator and the speed goes above 63.0000000001 mph

    Advice to Management

    Increase the overspeed tracking from 63 to 64 mph.

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

    Pros

    Good training and support for the drivers, allow drivers to determine preferred schedule - i.e., days or nights, treat drivers well overall, flexible with the drivers schedule when requested.

    Cons

    Do not give consistent miles, slow the drivers down when they think they're making too much money, and too many drivers.

    Advice to Management

    None of you have a job without the drivers, allow drivers to make a decent living and help them to do so by allowing them to run as many miles as they can run. Give company drivers first priority on loads available, as many loads as are needed to keep them moving.

    I worked at Schneider full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good equipment
    Good driver support
    Friendly people

    Cons

    Totally disorganized. Will make you wait 10 hours for a load and Aunt offer detainment pay.
    Claim safety is key, but make your drive in unsafe conditions
    Facilities (some) are disgusting.
    Pay is by far let in industry, despite what the "Social Media" robot says.
    No paid holidays ( unless you want to work for 6 days over Christmas for $120!!!
    Driver turnover is 100% or more..
    Miles are inconsistent.
    No per diem pay
    Etc, etc, etc

    Advice to Management

    Sell your jet and pay your drivers. Despite all your corporate cheerleading at your facilities, drivers won't stay until you pay them what they are worth. Schneider is at least 10% lower starting pay then any of the other major carriers, and a much as 25% lower then small carriers. Drivers are getting ready to organize..... I'm sure Don will love that.
