Schneider Offer

Or anyone who could enlighten me about this. The recruiter says that as far as she can tell it’s .45 cents a mile for all driving but I have read drivers comments about dead heading or pulling empty? and that affected their mileage pay

Schneider Offer

I drove OTR for Schneider my first two years. Not dedicated, but did run brief (1 week at a time) dedicated routes out of Ohio and Virginia.

What I did like about dedicated was that the loads were ready when promised and it seemed very consistent.

As an OTR Driver, if I was getting home for two days on Saturday, my two days off were Sunday and Monday, back out Tuesday. My understanding on Regional and dedicated is that you gotta be back out Monday, even if you barely get a reset (34 hour) in. Nothing wrong with that, just be sure you know.

Everything Schneider Recruiting promised me was true.

Congratulations!

I drove OTR for Schneider my first two years. Not dedicated, but did run brief (1 week at a time) dedicated routes out of Ohio and Virginia.

Was that A double drop and hook route. The reason I ask is that I am considering starting truck driving and have been talking with a Schneider recruiter. This sounds like the route i am to be put on if I accept and I pass CDL school. One thing I am unclear of that the recruiter can’t clear up is the .45 cents a mile. Is that for all driving or just loaded are there circumstances that will reduce that amount when actually driving. Thanks in advance for any help or advice

TMC flatbed advice for a rookie

Thanks for the info and twosides11 I feel the same way about the recruiters I have talked with not really that I don’t trust them but it is like pulling teeth to get straight answers. They tell me a lot of my questions will be answered at orientation by that time I am signed into a contract for the training and have to try to ride it out. Good luck to you twosides11.
