I'm pretty excited about it....Worked for 2 other companies since..One was hauling gasoline in a tanker truck and the other was driving for Toys R Us...Worked for Toys for 6 yrs and LOVED it...Would still be there except they decided to sell their transportation division to JB Hunt, so I've taken the last year off to check out other opportunity's ....I've found it difficult to match what I made as a truck driver so am now going back....Schneider was my first driving job and who knows, they may also be my last..Thanks to this web site and a year away, I feel a different attitude about going back....I start June 10th

WOO more Schneider people! I will be starting next Wednesday at Schneider Bulk Carriers out of Keasbey, NJ. Will be doing orientation and training at Coraopolis, PA. I saw their new 2013 Cascadias, but as a newbie I will most likely get one of the old 2008s so I can practice NOT hitting things... Any insights into driving tankers for Schneider?

Hey that sounds awesome! Schneider has a ton of different driving opportunities. I wouldn't hesitate to go to work for them myself.

Thanks Brett...I drove for them about 7 yrs and always found them to be honest and above board...Sometimes they didn't give me the answers that I "wanted", but I always felt they were honest answers....and for the most part, I think they treat drivers with respect...(Their are always exceptions, but thats been my experience!)

Nice, hope you didn't scare any of them with any of your stories from the road! embarrassed.gif

I think they treat drivers with respect

That's all we can ask for. Never understood why some people think an office worker should be treated with respect but a driver should not.
