Anybody have any info on the new Schneider pay changes to an hourly rate ? According to what I’ve heard, all drivers will be paid a different hourly rate for on-duty and drive time. This means no overtime pay will be given to us ? I’m on an home daily account and how is this going to work out ?

Have you asked your DM or payroll? When it comes to my money I want to know exactly what to expect. The only way to know the information you receive is 100% correct is talk to your company about it. I don't believe we have any current Schneider drivers that actively participate at this time.

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.

I think Klutch drives for Schneider, if I’m not mistaken.

What Rob said. Why on God’s green earth would you come on here and ask such a Schneider-specific question on a forum full of non-Schneider drivers? Contact your DBL about this, and if he/she is no help, dial the 800 number and ask someone in payroll.

I heard no overtime, 30 CPM , and only 34 hour resets on the road in daycabs for all drivers. Oh, and all hand load and unloading. All drivers must live at the terminal or in their daycab truck.

Don't quote me on any of this though.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

There are also increased bonus’s for the executives plus stock options.

I don’t know what it will be like for your account but people seem to misunderstand what they meant when they mentioned going to hourly pay. Maybe your specific account will differ but for VTL the hourly rate is ONLY for time spent logged on-duty not driving. So when doing inspections, checking in at customers, drop and hooks etc. all that jazz.

The change was supposed to help address the common complaint of how much time we spend “working” without getting paid for it.

The changes haven’t gone live for my division yet but thats what I was told by a manager for VTL.

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.
