I've scoured the net trying to find what the current cpm for new, inexperienced OTR drivers starting with Schneider is... but with no luck.

I've scoured these forums as well, but there's nothing from the past few years.

I've asked a recruiter twice (two different ones) and both times they said there was some computer issue going on and they couldn't find the information...

Any current Schneider drivers out there know?

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Haya, Garrett J. ~!!

Not sure how you didn't find our 'TT' SNI guys ... (rhymes!)

Pete B. (although he hauls bulk .. been there awhile) has a bucket load of comments, here:

Pete B. / SNI guy!

More recently, Jared (The Rev) went the SNI route, but opted out after 3 months for 'greeners' .. still would be worth a lookup; he was 'green' at SNI also, and probably posted a lot of his starting pay scales, throughout; here's a link to his, also! :

Jared / Rev SNI comments & diary

There's PLENTY more on here.... if you need help with the tags & the searchabilities, please let us know!

Wish you well, once again....always~

Garrett J, Because of the many different positions Schneider has, I'd try to talk to the specific recruiters for those positions. So, if you're looking on schneiderjobs.com and find a job you're interested in, give them the "Job ID" number. They should be able to tell you the starting pay.

When I started with Schneider (I'm no longer with them) the pay sounded really low (I think 28 cents per mile). But it came with a two cent per mile performance bonus, which I earned right out of the gate, plus there were pay raises at six months and one year. Add to that the sign on bonus and my first year pay was (I think) about $40K.

I drove dry van and almost every load was a drop/hook. So, not a lot of sitting around at shippers. This is important because some companies may offer a higher cpm , but might not have the high rate of drop/hook.

When I went with Schneider, out of the Lebanon, TN Operating Center, everything the recruiter (Leanne) promised, was true.

I hope this helps.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Spoke to them a couple weeks ago and they told me .42 per mile for 48 state OTR.

The person I spoke w/ on the phone was basically a kid trying to sell me on some crummy job. Must have said 3x "we can't guarantee this job will be available."

I'm like "are you kidding me, you've been calling me for a month..." GTFO

I removed them from my list.

I'm sure they where beyond devastated, in fact they will probably go out of business now.

So, who DID you end up going with, Andrew? Just curious . . .

They are going to next week. The COO just called me to break the news. There weren't enough drivers to fill the crummy jobs.

On another note...

As of this date, is their DUI policy still: "No drug or alcohol offences within 5 years, 1 in the last 7 years, 2 in a lifetime." ?

and

Do they currently do hair follicle test as part of the pre-employment screening?
