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

    Pros

    Mostly good trucks, great instructors and operating centers.

    Cons

    The management seems a bit understaffed. It can be hard to get a hold of your driver business leader. I felt a bit underpaid.

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

    Pros

    Great attitudes the people were nice to you and they made you feel very welcome. They paid you when you were supposed to be paid and have good company facilities and truck maintenance.

    Cons

    Horrible I mean horrible pay they do do the per diem pay which kinda helps but you can make more money at a fast food joint starting off. Will not let you use your phone to communicate at all not even with a bluetooth and they don't like you to have CB radios either no way to communicate back home while you are driving not even in an emergency not looking to be our of contact with my family 11 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the bluetooth rule and pay more money

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

    Pros

    I worked here full time as a carrier sales executive for about 8 months.. I learned alot about the transportation industry coming fresh out of school. I took the oppourtunity to grow and establish a very diverse book of 3pl carriers and leveraged key accounts.

    Incentive structure was nice if met
    Emphasis on servant leadership

    Cons

    Base Salary needs to be much higher. You are expected to work around the clock to meet your numbers and the incentive structure was by no means easy to obtain. This makes other sales associates unwilling to help you and steal from your prospects

    Very Clickish if you did not fit in with someone there you were left out i see this rise up even at a executive level.

    Poor communication from management everything is on a need to know basis

    CEO is very over payed and not rarely involved in lower level managment

    Care way to much about numbers and not enough about staff

    Advice to Management

    Be more willing to take your associates underneath your wing to help them improve and be sucessfull in their careers

    Increase incentive potential and make it easier to achieve

    Increase base salary

    Pros

    Good benefits, direct approach from staff and straight forward with what's expected.

    Cons

    Safety and training was great.

    Cons

    Minimum info given for survival.

    Advice to Management

    Squash the good ole boy network that you try to keep hidden. Just because you hire Blacks & women does not mean there is no discrimination or mistreatment from co-workers. Know your employees.
