Just checking in to see if anyone that has recently been through orientation for Schneider in Carlisle Pennsylvania and could provide “in detail “ about things such as types of backing, slow maneuvering, pre trip, road driving exc... I’m just trying to get a feel for on what to expect, what one does each day ,starting the first day and anything that would be a good to know that know one sometimes doesn’t mention. I’m heading there on the first of the month and wanted to start getting everything in order . I’ll be driving Cabela’s dedicated after orientation; checked into the details of the account and they fit with my personal and family dynamics so I’m not naive and don’t have any unreasonable expectations . I I know not all surprises can be accounted for but I like to try and obtain any pre knowledge about things as possible so as to limit as many surprises as possible and to have some understanding of places, routes, destinations exc.. before I get there. I would appreciate any up to date information, recent tips, advice, nice to know things, exc.. Thanks to all in advance, stay safe, and most importantly keep trucking !

Hello everyone it has been a while ago since I posted last .I have reached my 6 month mark and I would tell anyone that might be interested in Schneider dedicated that it is a good company to start with or even to stay in the long term . For family reasons my family and I have decided to switch to another company that has the Walmart Dedicated near me. I have researched and spoken to a couple (new company )employees indirectly and their feedback was good so we shall see. When I first started 6 months ago I went through and passed Schneider Orientation in Carlisle Pa. and started driving on the Cabelas account which was a good learning experience like driving by NYC and on the GW bridge, Jersey City Jersey as well as other places similar . The ops. Teams that I had while at Schneider were top notch . I based my decision on my family dynamics, new company benefits ( little cheaper) and pay which I would tell anyone don’t base you decision solely on pay because there’s a lot more to a company than just that there is other perks that are valuable as well and could offset one of the pre mentioned issues except family . I think one important note is any place is what one makes of it. Everyone stay safe. God Bless.
