How is Schneider Trucking

No longer in the pumpkin patch ...was just giving the original poster an idea of what can be expected...not saying it happens all the time but recruiting tactics are just that...to recruit unsuspecting participants....only for them to find out the truth after they have been hooked....for a brand new driver looking to get experience they are ok....get your experience...if you like them stay...if not move on...

Earn at least $900 in weekly guarantee pay during your first 120 days.

This is from their own website on one job posting...what they don't tell you is that you must have a minimum number of hours on duty to qualify...so if you are sitting all week waiting on a load or have only pulled a couple of short loads or whatever the case may be...if you do not have those hours on duty you don't qualify...

My complaint is...if I'm sitting and available for loads and do not refuse any loads then I should qualify....but that doesn't seem to be the case...just a recruiting tactic (lie) if you ask me....but who am I to say....

So...you will not be waiting a week for freight to move...Of course you have to have the minimum hours available, because 60 miles an hour,right?... They aren't giving you a 900 mile work order if you do not have the hours available to move the freight in a timely manner...meaning, you should be able, with your available hours, to get your trailer delivered at the time the work order specifies... $900 a week is accurate. You will make at least that much in 1 year of SAFE operation, without entanglements from DOT... Also, as a new driver, you should not refuse ANY loads...Unless the weather is dangerous, but the way they route is usually around weather. as much as is practical...

I think you are misunderstanding my comment...they are saying 900 a week for 120 days...why stop at 120 days if what you are saying is true....I understand it to be saying....if we don't have the loads for you to make 900 for the week we will make up the difference for 120 days...I'm saying I sat for basically a week...took what was offered...ie. local runs...and didn't make 900....so they should make up the difference according to the ad....I was available for loads during that week and ended up making squat....now tell me you won't sit for a week...if you do you will not be qualified for the 900 weekly even though you were available for loads...
