Schneider Dedicated Middletown Delaware

Yup tried all of that. Its a new facility and from what I gathered from the recruiting staff its a new contract for them but they said it is mostly light with 98% drop and hook with the rest being live unloads and reloads.

Schneider Dedicated Middletown Delaware

Any Schneider National drivers on here who run a amazon dedicated account. Looking for your input. Was given a offer but dont want to think too much into what the recruiting department says. I want to here someone who actually runs it.

HOS Question

So im slightly confused. I stopped driving with only 1.7 hrs left on my 14. I parked and placed in the sleeper. After 8 hours my elog shows that I now have 8 hours and 43 minutes that I can drive on my 11 and 11 hours and 43 on my 14 hour clock. I have not yet reached my 10th consecutive hour, how do I have driving time regained. Maybe I am ooverlooking something.

Quick question in regard to sleep study / cpap

Will, I hear ya. I went to the DOT doc and passed everything. Text book vitals, perfect vision, perfect hearing but wait your fat you need a sleep study. I ended up with a cpap machine, lucky my insurance with my prior job was still good. Went through it all. Make sure you use it every day for at least 4 hours. After about two weeks, you need a doc to read a compliance report from someone normally sleep study doc and of you have 70% compliance you get a one year card every year. Bad part, you need a truck with an inverter and apu so you can run this thing while you sleep. I had bought one that could run it by plugging it into the cig lighter and woke to a dead truck.

Pay scale for Schneider

I am currently driving for Schneider Bulk. As I type this I am on the side of the road with my first tire blow out lol.

I drive Bulk OTR. Pay starts at $0.37/mile loaded and empty, at 6 months goes to $0.42, then at 1 year goes to $0.44. Ive been solo for only 1 week and done about 2500 miles this week. Recruiter and dispatcher told me 2000-2500 is around what new drivers get as they learn the ropes and such.

There is also pay for loading/unloading, which you will sometimes have to do.

Tankers are not for everyone. I love it so far. The surge is not that bad, you get use to managing your shifting, braking, acceleration, and all that. I think people make a big deal out of surge but you just have to drive smarter smile.gif

There is pay for 24 hour detention, pay for being detained at a customer for more than 2 hours, I got a $7500 sign on bonus as well, not sure if they still doing that or not.

Consider Schneider Bulk. Feel free to PM me with questions and stuff. I'll try to answer.

Did they give you the bonus with first check or are they giving it to you in periods?

DOT/BMI/MEDICAL DISCRIMANATION

I had already contacted OOIDA being a member and was pretty much told to buy some good lube at least for now. They are looking into this really well though and I see them fighting it. It really is discrimination. If FMCSA is so concerned, why arent they making drivers who are fat getting a ekg done to make sure the heart is ok....oh thats right because a lot of us are ok.

DOT/BMI/MEDICAL DISCRIMANATION

Actually, its both discrimination and the doctors trying to do thier job or at least making people think they are. Im a big guy. Not going to hide it by any means. I went in for my new card. Passed every test with flying colors. Vital signs were perfect, BP 128/74 Pulse was 62, the whole nine yards. She comes in and says whats your neck size and your bmi makes you a risk for sleep apnea. Welcome cpap machine. Welcome one year card. Here is where I found things odd, after she new I went to a new company and didnt have health insurance yet, she calls me three days later and says she had a colleague who does sleep studies and for a small fee I would be good to go.......

So what you're telling me is, I get it up the rear, you get a cut of his small fee.
