Editor's Note: We have a complete review of Schneider National which includes pay and benefits, home time opportunities, types of freight, and much more. You'll want to check that out.

If there are any drivers out that that work or have worked for Schneider, can you please tell me their pay scale.

Unless I am overlooking it, I have searched their site inside and out, and I can't find anything about pay, pay raises, etc.

At first I was looking at Prime. Which I am still looking. But reading about all the down time with refers, loading and unloading, I see that as lost income. I know you have more loads year round with a refer, from everything I read, but with downtime, all I see is lost wages. wtf-2.gif

They will start you off at 26 to 28 cpm depending on where you haul and what division you work with. Regular increases start after 3 months of solo or team, again, depends on what and where you haul. Almost all companies are in the same range as far as starting pay and increases.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

I am currently driving for Schneider Bulk. As I type this I am on the side of the road with my first tire blow out lol.

I drive Bulk OTR. Pay starts at $0.37/mile loaded and empty, at 6 months goes to $0.42, then at 1 year goes to $0.44. Ive been solo for only 1 week and done about 2500 miles this week. Recruiter and dispatcher told me 2000-2500 is around what new drivers get as they learn the ropes and such.

There is also pay for loading/unloading, which you will sometimes have to do.

Tankers are not for everyone. I love it so far. The surge is not that bad, you get use to managing your shifting, braking, acceleration, and all that. I think people make a big deal out of surge but you just have to drive smarter smile.gif

There is pay for 24 hour detention, pay for being detained at a customer for more than 2 hours, I got a $7500 sign on bonus as well, not sure if they still doing that or not.

Consider Schneider Bulk. Feel free to PM me with questions and stuff. I'll try to answer.

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.

Dispatcher:

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.

Wow, so you blew out a tire and while you're waiting for repairs you thought "Hey, I'll check out the forum at TruckingTruth for a bit!"

Man, that's really awesome!

Yeah I have not been on here for a while. Been busy getting use to the new job and tying up things at home. I've been out since 7/12/13 and done 2600 miles so far. Dispatch here does a good job at making sure you have enough time to complete the load safely and on time. I have not felt super tired yet, or ran out of hours, or anything like that.

Funny story though. I got a 2008 Freightliner with 600,000 miles on it, and 200,000 on the engine (rebuilt engine I guess?). Not one issue with it so far except that tire. Two other guys in my training class got a 2011 and a 2012. It was just the luck of the draw, those were the trucks available at our respective Operating Centers. I was jealous at first. But...

The 2011 has overheated, had alternator issue, had some issue with 9th and 10th not having enough power, and a few other small things. The 2012 is having bunch of electrical issues, lots of sensors being tripped, lights not working, etc.

I am now very comfortable in my truck. My dispatcher said in a few months he'll give me a newer model, but I think I won't take it lol.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Did Schneider train you to get your CDL or did you get basically hired out of a private school?

CDL:

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

OTR:
