Schneider phone policy

Just got off the phone today with a recruiter, and she stated schneider has a strict phone policy while driving the truck, and its no talking or texting, even if its handsfree or bluetooth. So schneider drivers is this the truth or is this just during training. Because i know it gets lonley out there on those highways, and not being able to talk to anyone for hours on in, will wear u down, heck you are already isolated. So please tell me this isnt the whole truth so help me God. Oh and do schneider trucks come with compay cb radios or do you have to purchase your own.

Hey joshua, when u where at training was there any free time at the end od the day, i read schneider has a fitness area at their terminals, would u have time to get a workout in or to be social. IN Pa, is there anything to do on the weekend or is training 7 days a week, i think it is. What hotel do u stay in in Pa, i read that the Pa traing place is a very small town, just trying to paint a mental picture of what to expect. Oh and what ate some must haves when u go to training, like all pants, can i where shorts and tennis shoes, or just boots? Do i need to bring long sleeve shirts, a sleeping bag, pack light for the plane, do i jeed to bring some social clothes so when time is available or just stick to training attire. ? And when training is over do you leave from there with aload to go back to your home base?

I'm currently with Schneider Bulk Division. I've been here for 3 months now. I can tell you that their training is GREAT & very THOROUGH. You will learn ALOT over the course of 2-3 weeks: yes there is a Bulk training center in PA, one in Houston, & I forget where the other one is. But yea $800 gross is VERY possible. I myself have had like 2 or 3 weeks where I grossed $1000. If you put in the work you can make decent money in the Bulk Division.

Woooooooo (ric flair voice) Thanks for that insight because i was getting kinda of scared, if u dont mind me asking what is your average miles a week? do you go home every weekend or do you keep running? What year is your truck and did you get to pick your truck or was it already assigned to you. The accessory pay does it really equal to about 30% of your weekly gross? Where do you usually unload and haul for the most part. I know you stated you have been with them for 3 months, do you see yourself staying with them the full year or after? Last ? What made u choose snb out of all the other companies?

1750 is the average miles, I go home Every Friday @ 18:00 sometimes earlier & return Sunday @ 06:00, my truck is a 2015 Freightliner Cascadia automatic, yes the accessorial pay does equal about 30% if not more, we unload at most plants & water treatment places then when your done unloading you take the tank to the tank wash. I can definitely see myself staying here for a full year for sure. I love it so far. I chose Schneider because like yourself I didn't have many choices & they were the first to reply & didn't hesitate to get me on board so I rolled with it. Not regretting my decision what so ever. They pay .40 cent a mile, $25 loading pay (which you most likely will NEVER load) $35 unloading pay. $20 trailer shuttle (moving an empty trailer to another location) & $50 bulk short haul (hauling a loaded trailer a short distance) I think maybe 200 miles & under? Not sure.

Wow u where able to get a automatic, that would be my choice, were u able to pick it or was it just given to u, sure would like to get me one, i know everyone dont want one but i do

My superior guy drives a 2016 Mack. This is his 2nd truck since he's been there and it was new when he got it. He gets about 2000 miles per week but gets more money cause of hazmat. He gets paid for fueling and pumping and basically any on duty time.

My Schneider friend got her CDL at prime then went to Atlanta for the tanker training. I want to point out that the estimates of $800 per week stated above is GROSS... meaning taxes and insurances need to come out. Depending on what you choose... that could be a few hundred dollars difference. She has a 2015.

No offense but trying to drive hazmat tanker right away might not be the way to go. It's learning ugh learning without the surge and hazmat issues.

Thanks for the info. ......yea i know its going to be a learning curve, not sure if they start you out yanking hazmat loads in the very beginning, if so i guess i will have no choice, sure would love to get that superior job though cause yea they do pay u for almost everything u do, even 10 bucks to sleep iN your cab

Are there any current schneider bulk drivers on here?

I'm Schneider dry Van. Everything my recruiter promised was true. Been driving for Schneider over 18months.

I'm not sure why you'd train in PA for tanker. I thought that training was in Atlanta. However, one of the reasons I chose Schneider is they don't mess around keeping you training longer than necessary. Translation: I started earning my own money quicker than most companies.

I have only positive things to say about Schneider as a company to work for. I've considered bulk and talked to at least five drivers who all are very satisfied with that division of Schneider. And they all have been doing it over5 years.

Thanks steve, at first the recruiter did tell me Atlanta for 18 days, but the interviewer said it would be Pa for tanker and atl for intermodal and dedicated, just never heard ofnsomeone making a living off 1500 miles but if itsnpossible to make 800 gross at only 1500 miles then its okay fr the time being and be off everyweekend and the option to run weekends if i wish, i know being a rookie i have to pay my dues, i wish i already had a 1yr expierience because they have dedicated runs from miller brewing here where im from.....thanks for the info......woooooooooo

Thanks for the reply Ladies, Ms. Rainy, do u know if your friwnd is averaging around 1500 miles and is there pay around want i was quoted, close to 800 weekly, up or down and is it consistent. ......so u say discouraged from night driving ...i would love that, i just worried about 1500 miles and trying to.make a living, the superior gig they will hire out of school, everything is going well just need my school info i have cdl in hand with tank, and going for twic and haz tomorrow. What year truck did they give them and whats the farthest north do they drive, i was told virginia by the interviewer. Oh another question Ms. RAINY what training location did she attend , houston or Pa, and whats was to quality fo the hotel they put you in for 30 days, not being picking just dont want to be with a roomate and have to deal with being on the wrong side of town.....wink wink, or not being able to be comfortable at jight when its time to get much needed rest

Good evening everyone, been lurking all through school now here foes my first post and my first situation. Just did my ph interview with schneider bulk for southeast regional, they sated around 1500 mi at .39 cpm go to .42 after 6mths with accessory pay around 177 and make around 585 totaling close to 800 a week how true is this and what should i really expect? I have my tanker endorsement, and going to valdosta tomorrow to apply for twic and hazmat fingerprinting. CTL HAS contacted me and said i need my twic and hazmat in hand first or get my receipts and call back, they do have a position open out of atlanta terminal and its .45 cpm i think, and yes i believe ctl is better pay wise and schneider is really at the bottom of the three for me. Moving on, been in contact with superior over the past few weeks and they have been working me and seem to be a very good company, problem is they do have a position available, but they need my final transcript wich the school wont be released until next week and my certificate of completion....big problem my technical school keeps telling me it wont be ready until acouple of weeks, i went yesterday trying to explain to them that i have a job offer and that i really need these items to further my new career, so kinda stuck in a hardbplace and i reeeaaalllly want to get on with superior. SCHNEIDER is ready to put me on a plane, but my last resort. so my main question is what would you guys do in my situation. Momma always said a bird in hand is better than 2 in the bush, but i wanna make sure its the best bird and a good one, so i can eat for a long time if u know what i mean...................The black Rick Flair....wooooooooooo

Oh and whats really the lown down on scneidrr bulk if i have to go that route and there training in PA
