    Never a dull moment. Job requirements change constantly, and there is always a new project around the corner to keep things interesting. Great people to work with, and positive environment

    Wish they hired more direct, and didn't take advantage of so many contract positions.

    focus on the people you have, and take care of them.

    Pros

    The associates are extremely approachable and the culture is tremendous on the floor. The managers always there to help when asked and will give suggestions.

    Cons

    Metrics driven environment, which is fine but you are required to prospect 100 different companies to call each day with little to no support. You have to earn your favoritism. Be ready to earn everything on your own initially.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push open team competition. Also, be consistent on what you would like from your account executives, whether it be net revenue or volume. Going back and forth monthly makes it extremely difficult to maintain relationships with customers at times.

    I have been working at Schneider full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Normally starts you off with a higher pay than most companies. They're flexible to react to your personal life. They want you to leave. Safety is taken seriously. Other truck employers would hire you if you worked for Schneider because they know you've been trained well and succeeded (unless you've been fired). Not trying to be racial, but this is one of the best Big Companies and the black driver ratios is higher here than any other employer (I like the fact that the minorities are the majorities in this organization). Best place for owner operator (you really gets to pick your loads....JB Hunt too).

    Cons

    As big as the company is, they won't give guarantee pay. Covenant Transport, Mavericks, K&B Transportation, Boyle, Mast Trucking, and certain US Express accounts off it. There's been many of times I had crappy miles and pay was 3-5 hundrish dollars. I had to threaten to leave to get better miles. The DBL's has too many drivers assigned to them that they can't personally get to know you (like other big trucking companies). Team drivers has a high chance of not staying together ( some to do stick it out). Team drivers work better with someone they are related to or knew in the past very well (this is team driver employers cross the border). The list can go on because all companies has their alike and unique characteristics.

    Advice to Management

    Higher more DBLs' to make work relationships better. Most importantly......offer guarantee pay to eliminate turnovers, drivers breaking laws to drop load in order to get another load (to make more money). Other than that, its an awesome place.

    Great entry level job you learn the value of hard work and hitting daily metrics to then hit your sales goals. They give you the tools to get to where you need to be. Fun place to work and the people are great!

    They make it seem very attainable to start making commission right away but it does take time to build your customers enough to be hitting that commission, but that's sales!
