1 year anniversary with Schneider on Dollar General Account
How have you liked Schneider so far? Are they good with home time and getting repairs done?
I talked with a recruiter and they said they have a dedicated driver opening for me. It consists of out for 3 weeks at a time and home 3 days with the option of staying out more weeks with 1 day off per week. I asked him if I could get 7 days off in a row if I stayed out 7 weeks and he said sure you will have to talk to your dispatcher about that. That doesn't inspire much confidence because one of my biggest requirements is have a week off at a time so I can travel the world. Only Roehl that I know of has 7 days off in a row.
The dedicated option consists of me pulling a dry van, reefer and flat bed whatever the company needs at the time.
The pay is 1200 guaranteed per week. After I complete the 3 weeks out he said I get a bonus pay of 250$ and every week after the required 3 weeks out I get another 400$ per week. So $1200 + $250 for the first 3 weeks and $1600 the 4th week, 5th week etc...if my math is correct I'll have about 8k before taxes after 7 weeks out. After taxes maybe 6k? That's more than enough for savings, as well as luxury travel for a week.
I'm currently in a seasonal job just making by...
