Rainy, I'm gonna have to sit this one out. There are no negative reviews on Schneider. Everyone is happy and content. All loads are drop and hook , all routes are on new pavement, equipment never breaks down and all the drivers are either beautiful or handsome. Well, except for me. That would be the one negative.

Drop And Hook:

Drop and hook means the driver will drop one trailer and hook to another one.

In order to speed up the pickup and delivery process a driver may be instructed to drop their empty trailer and hook to one that is already loaded, or drop their loaded trailer and hook to one that is already empty. That way the driver will not have to wait for a trailer to be loaded or unloaded.

Only 1 review for my company

Not physically demanding. The scheduling could be more desired. Top of the line equipment. It was a great career move for me until the company's poor implementation of federal law cost me employment and severly harmed my career.

Complaint about scheduling isn't too bad, it does suck needing to "bid" routes daily. Being 5th from the bottom in seniority, of about 160 drivers, I don't typically get too much of a choice where I'm going. Also I don't know where I'm going until about 3pm and I could start as early as 10pm. The senior guys wanted it that way and I feel they should be rewarded for their longevity with the company. The rest of that review is total BS. One of the trainers I went with has 27 years in with the company and is still #26 in seniority. If they forced drivers to violate HOS and get fired how are there that many drivers still here after 30 years. What i see is a driver who refused to abide by HOS and then blames the company. This company is by the book and if they're not completely sure of the regulation our manager or even the VP will read us directly from the book what it says over the phone. My friend who followed me here got his butt chewed out and told that if it continues he'll be out of a job. What did he do? He was 10 minutes away from the yard and logged out of people net and drove the rest of the way.

I also looked up our parent company that we deliver to and only negative i could find was that the new guys have to work weekends for years before switching to weekdays.

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I read some of ours, and there are a lot that say how the company only fires the good workers like themselves while keeping the bad ones which was everyone else. Which obviously is how all good companies operate

Well.......at least someone gets it!

I like this one about governed at 58 on pedal 62 on cruise....and he learned to hate prime in just one month!!!

"Place sucks. West coast sucks too. 58 MPH . My grandma would complain about prime trucks! I have nothing more to say. Maybe next time I won't waste a month of my life...."

after he had nothing more to say, he wasted another line of typing lol

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.

"Swift is just a starter company".

It amazes me how they can operate with 15,000 trainees on the road!

No kidding...

And most likely the drivers posting that have only just started themselves...as if they know what it will be like to drive for Swift a year or two later.

Most of ours relate to the affilates not QC itself. They always complain about too many empty miles. The business model is very different from most trucking companies. It is true we run alot of empty miles, however what is always not said is we are paid to run those empty miles. If I’m being paid anway it makes very little difference. Those empty miles are factored into the linehaul rates. They allow the affilates to set their own pay packages and some are much better than others.

Linehaul:

Linehaul drivers will normally run loads from terminal to terminal for LTL (Less than Truckload) companies.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers will have Linehaul drivers and P&D drivers. The P&D drivers will deliver loads locally from the terminal and pick up loads returning them to the terminal. Linehaul drivers will then run truckloads from terminal to terminal.
