Heading to Atlanta next week for orientation with Schneider, then will be slotted in an OTR position out of Jacksonville Florida. Trying to get home things taken care of this week before heading out. Will be reading post here as usual on the forum as it can be super useful. If anyone has recently gone thru orientation at Schneider and want to add anything new, let me know ;-)

I will try and update moving forward, thanks for all of the support, this is a great forum.

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.

William, you have chosen a good company, and congratulations on you being picked by them. Now will be the time to turn your mind into a sponge, and learn everything that they throw at you. Don't judge their delivery of the knowledge, just take it, learn it and use it. The Punpkin trucks have been around a long time, and with a good rep, so they must be doin' something right. GOOD LUCK !!! and as always, keep us informed.

Ok, Day 1 went well. Schneider really seem to be a professional company and tons of support for their drivers. I must say I already miss home ;-) but looking forward to the real training which really begins today, as well as actually making money! I know there are good things ahead!

Very cool to hear it's gotten off to a good start! Hopefully they'll keep you busy enough that you won't have much time to reflect on the folks back home.

Day two and three have been good, doing a lot of driving then heading out with trainer this weekend, destination unknown at this time. Education on driving techniques of the gear has been excellent. I consider this a masters degree in driving after the general education of the driving school, which was good.

Schneider has a very complete program in that respect. There are many drivers here from other companies and they tend to agree that the training and welcome and respect here has been superior to many of the other companies. Varied reasons and stories for sure, but that has been what Im hearing.

More to report later!

I'll be following your reports. Schneider, Prime, and Superior Carriers are pretty much top of my list right now. I graduate on May 17th so I want to head out end of May.

Is Schneider having you team drive during the training?
