Suggestions for improvement

  • Communication is always a big one. Communication goes both ways. One shift tends to communicate with associates on that shift, but not so much with the other shifts. But if the other shifts don’t communicate with the one, crap hits the fan and the blame game tends to start.

What I like about the company

They were very flexible with my schedule while I was in college. They continue being flexible with other associates schedules when life happens.

What I dislike about the company

Communication can be lacking. They need better communication between all shifts, not just one.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better communication. Paid time off not just on vacation. More training. Better fleet managers. Offer family health insurance. Consistent loads. Better pay.

What I like about the company

They are respectful in a crisis. But, some of the managers are very rude. When your family member are trying to locate you it is hard. Other than that it is okay.

What I dislike about the company

The time off needs to be paid. The wait time for loads needs to be diminished. They need to assist drivers in finding parking spots or even help pay for them at no cost to the driver. Better managers that are able to assist drivers and their family members. Need to offer health insurance for the drivers family. Better communication.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Improvements could include removing junk food from vending machines or providing healthy eating options at a reduced cost. An improved recycling program would also show a commitment to the environment which is important for a company that has a significant and negative impact on the environment.

What I like about the company

Many people that work at the company have been here for many years. They are dedicated to the continued success of the company. There is a great spirit of teamwork and hard work but the company retains its values of maintaining a comfortable and safe work environment.

What I dislike about the company

Company culture and morale varies from location to location, team to team. Some teams are very fun and creative while others are very strict and focused. Company leadership tends to lean toward a strict and focused work environment and this does not foster teams that are hard working while being fun at the same time.

Company Culture

In the almost 16 years I have been involved with this company, the overall culture has changed greatly. Things that used to be considered very important by management, are now often just a poster on the wall.

Support from management

If the weakest links are at the top of the chain, then everything else will unravel. I believe that the upper levels of management are pretty much clueless about how the company actually operates.

Teamwork

Again, Schneider is dropping the ball on this. Because there are so many layers between the front line personnel, and those who make the decisions, it caused me great frustration.

Freedom to work independently

With all the technology, and ease of communication, the “freedom of the open road” at least as I knew it, is gone.

Internal Communication

This area has slipped as well. It seems to me that the way the company has gone, is that if it’s good for the individual manager, then that is all that matters.

Gender Equality

I believe Schneider is doing very well in the category. There seems to be a balance between female and male office personnel. Most of the drivers are male, but that is in most other trucking companies too.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Overall, Schneider takes good care of those who have worked for the company long term.

Career Development

Schneider has great potential for advancing through the ranks, and to help people better themselves.,

Overall compensation for your work

I felt that I was fairly compensated for the work I performed, while at Schneider.

Office / Work Environment

There could definitely be improvement shown in this area. The leaders are not allowed to lead. Due to the constant fear of being labeled as a “somethingIST” because someone doesn’t like the way you spoke/looked at them, it causes frustration amongst the staff.

Environmental Friendliness

I’m not an expert on what constitutes environmental friendliness. From what I do know, Schneider seems to be doing ok.

Work-Life Balance

Schneider has improved immensely in this category, compared to when I first started.

Company Image

Over the years, I believe Schneider’s image has changed. From my perspective, the company has done a 180, and become a totally different organization.

Job Security

This is one of Schneider’s strong points.

Handicapped Accessibility

No issues here.

Workplace Safety

This is a difficult category to rank. The company motto of “Safety first and Always” in my opinion has been reduced to a poster on the wall. That is not to say that individual drivers can’t do the right thing, it means that the management doesn’t understand what it is that the drivers should be doing, that causes friction between the bosses and the worker bees.

Challenging Work

Yes, absolutely! However many of the challenges that drivers deal with, could be alleviated if more attention was put into solving the more serious issues .

Inclusive / Diverse

Schneider does very well in this category.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Actually train drivers to safely operate the equipment, and not rely on any electronic babysitters , to do the driver’s job Communicate/Communicate/Communicate!!! Oftentimes information is not shared, because the individual who should be able to guide you, doesn’t know, and isn’t willing to admit it. When I started at Schneider, the majority of the office personnel were subject matter experts on how the corporation worked. Now, one hand doesn’t know what the other is doing.

What I like about the company

Quite a few things. The fact that Schneider gives new drivers a chance. The many good people I have met there over the years. The fact that anyone can contact, and speak with any of the leadership is a great thing as well!!!

What I dislike about the company

My biggest complaint is how the quality of driver training has slipped. There are several other reasons as well, but I believe I have addressed the highlights in the categories above...

Suggestions for improvement

  • I am satisfied with everything at Schneider, other than the 2 things that I just mentioned that I disapprove of.

What I like about the company

I get treated very well. I am on a first name basis with the division manager. I have several different leaders, and they have all been very helpful and accommodating to me. If there is a better trucking company for me to work for, I am unaware of it, and would be hard pressed to find a better company.

What I dislike about the company

The performance bonus metrics for which we are bonused. The assigned tractors don't all have a park smart system installed to prevent engine idling in summer time conditions.

Workplace Safety

The company encourages safety but to them safety means liability. Who cares what you do to endanger yourself or the public, just make sure the company is not held responsible.

Inclusive / Diverse

Low skilled minority employees. All very nice people that too often let the company walk all over them.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get every thing the recruiter promises in writing. Do NOT do team driving. You will get assinged the worst of the worst drivers. Expect your DBL to be a tyrant. They are trained to not put up with any complaints from the drivers. The orientation and training is a joke. The instructors just want to check you off their list and get you on the road. I was in the military and fully understood that I was government property but these guys take it to another level. They own you. Expect 80 hour work weeks for average $500 per week. How the trucking industry gets away with no overtime pay should be criminal. Most of your fellow employees are low skilled and down on thier luck. The industry preys on these type of people.

What I like about the company

Good equipment and nice people.

What I dislike about the company

Low pay, long hours and little home time.

Company Culture

Average environment

Support from management

Yes and no my experience with management is they are not willing to live up to their mistakes.

And when you question them about their mistakes they use the cliche oh that's just Trucking however if you make a mistake or miscommunicate they're quick to point it out.

This is based on the manager I dealt with all of the other managers that was fine.

Teamwork

A lot of times we had a shortage on trailers however it wasn't communicated to us at appropriate time which made us late for loads and instead of living up to that problem they place blame on the driver.

Plus they laid off the evening shift so when the driver had issues they had no one to call so when the morning shift came in they assume the worst.

Freedom to work independently

Yes

Internal Communication

Average

Attitude towards older colleagues

Fair

Workplace Safety

Average

Suggestions for improvement

  • I need an employee's Excellence program to teach management how to be accountable and more helpful when it comes to trailer issues and load cancellations. There were times I know that loads cancelled on me and I didn't even know it until I went to pick it up. Or I will send three to four different locations to find a trailer and which made me late picking up my load and instead of taking in consideration that lack of communication and inability to have appropriate equipment available for drivers.

What I like about the company

I like the load board where you can pick your own loads

What I dislike about the company

I didn't like my manager way of communicating and the lack of accountability.

What I like about the company

It is a good place for a veteran to have a fresh start while using the skills and attitudes that are part of every successful veteran. Military service ranks high among the attributes for a prospective candidate whether it be for a driving position or and office/shop position. The company has a driving school reimbursement policy and loves former military.

What I dislike about the company

To be honest, the biggest thing is the sheer size of the company. Large organizations can be difficult but veterans are used to that.
