Hey Everyone,

Sorry it has taken so long to reply, just been contemplation on what i want to do. And I'm going to take the risk and take a local job !!! few things you should know miles per week are a average of 1300 a week my checks are a average of $350-$450 weekly take home. I also asked my DBL for miles and was told they will give me what they have available. Also this week I am only work 4 of the 5 days so wont even see a 1000 miles for the week which is horrible. I was told by the recruiter when I signed up that i would average 2000-2500 a week and haven't seen that. I think Schneider as a whole is a great company just picked a bad account to work on. I hope all of you will respect my decision on going local and will give Schneider an official notice because it the right thing to do even though I will get bashed in that report they fill out for other company's.

I respect your decision. I Just don't understand. First you were so busy you couldn't rest, now you're not busy enough to make a living.

Good luck with that local job.

I really do like working for them money is great and the training was amazing really wouldn't consider leaving but I'm not eating or sleeping right, I'm trip planning everyday and can't really take rest breaks to eat or use the rest room or pull over to nap when tired or I'll be late for my stop or the next day assignment, they just implemented 4 strike rule for lateness alot factors of why I'm considering leaving.

Totally conflicting statements, right? Well what I noticed is:

they just implemented 4 strike rule for lateness

Now who would care about that? People who are late for appointments. Who doesn't get the miles the top tier drivers get? People who are late for appointments.

Why might you be late?

I'm not eating or sleeping right, I'm trip planning everyday and can't really take rest breaks to eat or use the rest room or pull over to nap when tired or I'll be late for my stop or the next day assignment

So what happened is they were running you hard at first but you were late a couple of times for appointments. Now you're not getting the miles anymore. Does that sound about right?

I can't believe I'm being attacked on here right now !!!! I'm not the type of guy who can easily write my words on paper so sorry that you guys aren't understanding my point.

1st of all I haven't been late for any delivery even being bad at trip planner I'm always early just run out of time on my way back if I'm doing a haul to MD or VA or Upstate NY.

number 2 what I consider running alot is probably a cake walk for you experience guys I was running a load coming back getting next day load and driving to my next stop sleeping at the dock deliver then unload and head back and do it over again that's what I ment by running.

Hey, no one is saying you're a bad guy. We're saying you're contradicting yourself. You want us to help you then be honest with us and tell us what's really going on. Are you running so hard you can't get enough sleep or are you sleeping so much you can't make any money?

And why would you say you're leaving because "they just implemented 4 strike rule for lateness" if you've never been late? I mean, you don't have to be a detective to see there's more to this story than what you're telling us. We're more than happy to help you out but you have to give us the straight scoop. The more you tell us and the more honest you are the more effectively we can help you.

HackAttack...good luck in your local job. I simply cannot believe Schneider has only 1300 miles on a dedicated account. There would be no drivers on the account!!!

I run dedicated in the same area Va. PA...northeast. I see plenty on Pumpkins in my travels.

Good luck!!

Schneider has a whole lot more miles than just 1300 for their dedicated accounts... That is, unless you're always late.

Schneider is going through a change right now with work flow. they are just coming out of it. also this has been dry box slow time it will get busy now ( after tax dead line it always gets better for dry box). when you ask or say something about a specific company be careful about what you are told by people that dont work for that company, they might not know about some things that are going on and box has been slow in many areas probably for many companies. it will get better. good luck at whatever you choose
