    Pros

    They keep their word as long as you don't try to pull a con game. Give it to them straight and they will try to work with you.

    Cons

    For a family man too much time away from family and friends. They will try to route you through the house if you give them enough time in advance.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the one on one with all levels of employees. treat each other with the respect you would want.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to grow and expand your career. Management is very supportive and encourages appropriate risk taking. Great team environment.

    Cons

    Most opportunities are in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Don't get me wrong, Green Bay is a great place to raise a family, but you have to enjoy cold winters with lots of snow.

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

    Pros

    -great miles
    -benifits
    -lots of driving postitions and options
    -work closely with dot to eliminate hassles

    Cons

    -they are cheap when it comes to equipment, always fix, never wanting to upgrade trucks
    -they stress safety a little too much, very strict when it comes to driving on every little aspect
    -sensors installed in truck to moniter everything gets annoying and sometime in-accurate

    Advice to Management

    upgrade trucks and stop stressing so much over safety, because sometimes the truck sensor goes off when it is not supposed too. it is not a perfect system

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

    Pros

    Chicago Intermodal Fleet. People are always willing to help. Pay is decent for a newer drive starting at $0.34 (+0.07 performance pay based on safety metrics). Weekly paychecks will be about 700-1000 for regional drivers who are just starting.

    Cons

    Parking lot and Operating Center gravel lots are like land mine craters...drive slow. Much older trucks in this fleet...dented and banged up from years 2006- present of use and intermodal close quarters incidents. Newer truck coming in by end of summer 2013- they look like they do not have in-cab a/c which would mean that the truck will need to be idled in the summertime if a/c is needed while you sleep which can count against performance metrics.
    COMMUNICATE TROUGH THE QUALLCOMM MESSAGE FEATURE. It helps you as the driver have proof of what you are doing or need in writing. If calling into your leader first send a msg on th QUALLCOMM and follow up by phone (avg hold time is 15min)

    Advice to Management

    Stop laughing and talking to each other while I stand in the office with my cell phone on hold in your call que trying to see why it takes so long before someone answers the phone. I have done this each time I've come into the office to scan paperwork.

    I worked at Schneider full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has tons of different types of roles and job opportunities. Sit-ins are encouraged to learn about other roles and move up within the company. Hard workers are noticed and promoted. The people are amazing and put their whole heart into their work

    Cons

    With such a large company it's hard to know what's out there for other opportunities are out there or where to begin. While most people are awesome, some managers have been kept around due to longevity versus skill. Work/like balance can get out of hand if you don't set your own limits.

    Advice to Management

    Be more visible! All the executives are in one wing versus spread throughout like with many employers.
