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

    Pros

    Good communication, excellent equipment, plenty of miles, good home time, almost all no touch freight, prepass in all trucks, get to bipass almost all weigh stations.

    Cons

    Other drivers do not always leave equipment in best condition, but that is true of any company. There really isn't anything else bad to say about this company

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The year I spend driving for you was very enjoyable. The training and equipment you provided was top notch. Thank you.

    Pros

    Great pay. Lots of OT if you need it. You can easily move up if you work for it and kiss you know what to the right people.

    Cons

    Management is always on you. The people who work there live for drama. You get written up for everything. Everyone there is low class. Nobody knows how to act.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to provide a good work environment and talk to your workers.

    Great advancement opportunities with training options throughout the company. Many opportunities for travel as well. Degree aren't required and on the job training is a bonus.

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

    Pros

    corporate headquarters building in Green Bay is well maintained with good amentities such as cafeteria.

    Cons

    stiff, old-school corporate hierarchical structure where they view employees as expendable assets only

    business reporting analysts are over-worked, under-appreciated, and grossly under-paid. try asking for a raise and you will get the worst type of verbal gymnastics that will make give you no concrete information and will make you feel guilty for asking

    Advice to Management

    watch out for Uber in 5 years getting in the transporation industry and totally crippling your business

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

    Pros

    -Paid CDL training (with 1yr contract)
    -Gain driving experience.

    Cons

    -The Dedicated account job I'm currently in is advertised as "up to $65,000/yr". I am working at an above-average level and will gross $45,000 this year. I calculated what I would have to do to make 65 and found it would be 100% impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Treat Drivers better. WE NEED APUS IN THE TRUCKS!!! How am I supposed to sleep when its 90 degrees inside my truck and it wont let me idle??? That tiny little joke of a fan doesn't help!

    I have been working at Schneider full-time

    Pros

    They have a lot of freight. So you'll keep moving. It's best to get your hazmat it opens up a lot of doors to haul more freight. Money for it could be better. It doesn't increase it as much. But it's more freight to get you home.

    Cons

    They lied about the position. I'm a tanker driver and I signed on to only drive 90% of the southeast region, not going past Delaware. They had me almost in Massachusetts and everywhere up north on New Jersey. When I asked to get switched over to intermodal or to Dry Van. They didn't want me to change over saying it would take 2 weeks to process the paper work when it doesn't. Then they say they want you to change within 6months of being there. The communication with customer service and The DBL is horrible. Sometimes you'll get a load and it's not supposed to be there until maybe 3days later at a different time then they tell you. Their the Walmart brand of Tanker division. The trucks are really slow. The bonuses are how they try to reel people in. But it's not worth the Hassel. It's going to get taxed and you'll barley see a difference. Some of the DBLS don't know what they are talking about and are fairly new.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to drivers to reel them in and have a position filled. And tell the truth about the money and how it is not a major difference.
