My Awful experience with Schneider National as rookie.

Howdy Fellas, My Name Is De La Rosa, I'm not trying to be a Debbie downer here but I have had quite the time working with this company thus far. I'm based out of Washington state. Graduated around August of this year with my CDL, few endorsement here and there. No luck, till I got hired with Schneider. Training was good, I was away from home for a month for training. Then they assigned me to pretty crappy truck with 400k Miles. Pretty Hesitant to drive it I pointed it out to maintenance/mechanics, they did very little.to help me.. The truck broke down 2 twice, the transmission went out on a downgrade, I can only imagine if it was winter time and who would have died If were pulling 80k gross and that transmission stopped working. I was Stuck in Reno making pennies and looking homeless, Pretty sketchy stuff if you ask me. They forgot my home time so I was away another month on the road. I only made one decent paycheck of 1400$ after tax. That's after 2500 miles or a week or so. Most of the time I was just either sitting around or wasting time moving empties when local guys should be doing that in L.A, it's been headaches with the shippers, not wanting to release loads or my truck not working. my DBL is an a**hat. 400$ a week isn't working for me. Any help/suggestions or other carriers you guys recommend? I don't mind going through orientation again even though I been solo driving for month and half, how inconsistent schneider is driving me insane.
