Here is two pictures of a driver on Schneiders Facebook page basically blaming them for hitting a snow bank at the Carlisle OC.

It seems the problem began due to the trailer not being assigned to him, so of course they refuse to let you leave the OC. If the other drivers were in the way, he could have simply asked them to backup a bit. Which I'm sure e did not.

I drive for Schneider and have no complaints. I only got 4 weeks of "intense" training, but I admired the dedication of all my instructors. But they can't fix stupid or teach common sense to someone without it to start with.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

In the two years I drove for Schneider, Carlisle was my favorite OC.

The only times I had a trailer assignment issue was when I tried leaving before the system updated. It was no big deal.

Lol who quits because of a security guard?

I am guessing he had the wrong trailer and tried to back up mad and hit the snow. Instead of owning up to it and moving on he throws a fit and quits.

I'm guessing Schnider will go out of business now, because he refuses to work for them.

It was nice working for them while it lasted! rofl-1.gif

But seriously, how are you going yo blame someone else because you hit something? When it was clearly your fault! wtf-2.gif

Then up and quit because they want to bring you back in for another road test and what not which is standard policy for Schneider.

"I will never ever work for any other trucking company".... Nobody will hire him anyway.

It's one of my favorite OCs, and I've never had a problem leaving with a trailer assigned to me luckily. I did have to have a problem fixed on a trailer before I could leave with it again. But that's about it, they told me on the way in.

Jamie...if this seems silly to you after only a few months, imagine how silly this sort of thing looks to the likes of myself, the other moderators and the experienced drivers on this forum.

This is the sort of nonesense that unsuspecting wanna-be’s read on the internet and ingest as fact.

This was a bad situation from the start and this driver did nothing to help himself, and allowed it to go from bad to worse. I had a similiar type situation my second year. A security sgt refused to allow me to take a trailer out of a yard, Long story short. I deemed it was unsafe in the conditions to back out. I pulled the brakes and shut the truck down in the gate until we came up with a safe solution. She was mad as could be, however nothing she could argue since it was a safety issue. She was mistaken, made a ugly scene out of it, but I refused to allow her to ruin my day or impact my career past our brief encounter.
