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

    Pros

    Good training, clear standards, extended network

    Cons

    Never home but local drivers have to unload the trucks, low pay

    Advice to Management

    Teach load planners that driving is not exactly 50 miles an hour. It takes time to drop, hook or locales where you have to wait for load or offload. This is really difficult when low on your hours near the end of each day.

    Pros

    Generally the people are very nice and care about your success.

    Cons

    I worked far from the headquarters in GreenBay and at a facility that was having lots of issues. The biggest issue was lack of communication between managers and people they were in charge of.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, practice MBWA, ask real questions about how things are going to your employees.

    Pros

    For a trucking Company they do a great job of treating there people right. Training towards leadership and a positive culture is one of the best things that they do.
