Any first year Schneider drivers out there?

I have an offer and they promise to be home every 2 weeks. The more people I speak to say they are absolutely lying. Sure slightly more than 2 weeks is fine but out a month? No way... So I thought I'd see if anyone is in their first year to with them to gain a truthful picture of what to expect.

Everyone drive safe... and Thank You...

Switched To A Local Account

You are absolutely NOT making double what you were in OTR earnings. If you're working a regular OTR schedule you were earning 60k ~ give or take 5k. So you're saying now you're gonna make 120k?...Come on now....

Which company would offer regular home time?

Hi,

I'm just starting out in my career and looks like my only two options for solo driving are Swift or Schneider. Why only those two options you ask? Well I've applied to five and only have heard from two. Tyson's said they have a policy which if you're out of cdl training for more than 30 days, they can't offer you employment; which is complete bs.. Cargo(which has a good rep especially here in NC) said I've had too many jobs in the past three years despite my excellent driving, criminal and credit record. But I guess rules are rules...(eye roll)...

Swift or Schneider? Because I want to come home every week or 10 days. Forget that out for three or 4 weeks junk. Not interested at all; very unhealthy..

So to the people whom have semi recent experience with these two companies, which would be more probable to get a driver home on a regular basis.?

Thank you from North Carolina.....

VERY Choppy Job History.... Where should I apply?

Just to clarify I wasn't downing all partner type situations. I understand I'll be paired with a trainer for at least 6 weeks. I was more referring to living with someone OTR for the whole year. That's why the OTR doesn't excite me at all.

My objective was to seek advice on companies that may look past my past, understand this is a new career and my job hopping won't scare them away.

As for local OTR smaller companies, yes I could probably get hired by one (fingers crossed) but again it'd be for the whole year living in a box with some dude... Why a year I say because I'm already smart enough to understand newbies must stay with their 1st company for the entire year to show commitment.

Thank you and good luck to all... especially me....lol

VERY Choppy Job History.... Where should I apply?

Hi,

I have a very choppy job history for a host of reasons (smart ass replies not welcomed). I just finished my cdl in a community college in South Carolina, have a crystal clean driving record, great credit history, and completely clean criminal record.

Are there any companies that would take me? As for local OTR gigs, I'm just not that excited about living with a some dude is a box for 5 &1/2 days a week.

Advise? Thank you...

Can background checks tell whether everywhere I've worked???.......

Hi, If a company does a background check on my work history, can they see other part time jobs I've held if I choose to omit them from my application? Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of work history background checks? I just don't want to list every part time job.

Some say they can see all jobs held... Some say absolutely not, just the ones you list.

Thanks men & women. Drive safe....

Got my cdl in late February, but haven't used it yet....Is that bad?

Hi, Attained my cdl (haz/tank) in late Feb, but haven't looked too hard for a job cause I thought I was moving. Now its late April. Does potential employers see that as a negative?

Hope everyone is safe today.
