    Pros

    There was alot of pros to working here. You can get the miles you want, it's all up to the driver. Heavy emphasis on safety company wide. Never had an issue with my dbl.

    Cons

    Min 2 hr wait before detention is paid. Never enough ppl to answer phones on 2nd, 3rd shift or most weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Need more staff on the phones please.

    Pros

    They will get you home when you want.

    Cons

    Very inconsistent with miles. Many times you get a preloaded assignment to find out that it is a live load when you get there. Or vice versa. Then you have to wait forever for them to change tasks. Detention pay is horrible, which happens alot. Sign on bonuses​ are pointless, they are taxed at 40%. Don't let them fool you. I have a perfect driving record, but was let go because someone reported me doing a legal u-turn at an intersection. This is a day after I reported that I had to go to emergency room for shingles which I had been working with for 4 days without any meds. Coincidence?, I think not. By the way, they will try to prevent you from getting quarter bonuses, I have an inside source that says they get incentives for keeping drivers under a certain criteria. Watch out, and protect yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being selfish and realize that without drivers , you have no business. Pay us what we deserve. If you have not been a driver then you have no business being a driver manager.

    I have been working at Schneider full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    4 day work week. 2-3 weeks vacation. Room for advancement. Training opportunities. Online LearnSmart access. Very smart and driven management team.

    Cons

    Long hours. Low pay. High pressure at some locations. High turnover rate in employees and management.

    Advice to Management

    If we want to be a leader in Logistics we have to pay like the leaders in Logistics. Average supervisor salary of promoted from within personnel is $8-$10K less than industry standards.
    Supervisor staff is stretched very thin and under appreciated. Support those you have instead of chasing them away.

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

    Pros

    Easy to get entry level jobs. Hiring process moves quickly. Took about three weeks from when I applied to accepted offer.

    Cons

    This is a very large company and most workers are treated as just a cog. Individualalty isn't something they seem to like. For internal interviews you must answer the questions the way they think they should be answered or you won't get the position. Middle/low level managers are too busy to really coach and lead their employees. Lots of turn over and burn out. Too much red tape to get ideas approved and supported.

    Insurance is high premium and high deductible for a family plan. HR doesn't seem to be transparent. I tried to find a general salary range for an open position and the recruiter had no idea or wouldn't tell me. Other companies I have worked for post salary ranges/level for internal positions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop having graded interviews and let people know at least a general salary range when they ask for internal positions. Don't make it so difficult for workers to try their ideas.
