  • On top of 11 1/2 hour shifts, our days off rotated. It was very hard on us as well as our families. Having the same days off every week adds positively to the work/life balance.

What I like about the company

I learned a lot as a Schneider mechanic. The training is excellent as are the benefits. I learned to weld, use an acetylene torch, and countless other skills I would have had to pay to learn anywhere else. Schneider bought all my work boots and allowed me opportunities for advancement. In my opinion, the most unique thing about Schneider was getting a week vacation after only 6 months of employment.

Along with generous compensation, Schneider also recognizes mechanics for things like going a year without having an accident (I received a Carhart coat) and we had barbeques in the summer and award events all year long . Getting paid 2 1/2 times normal pay for working holidays was nice too.

In all, Schneider was the best company I've ever worked for.

What I dislike about the company

Our leadership people changed/moved on often, making our work environment stressful, as we had to get used to doing things each lead person's way. Just as we would acclimate to one Team Leader's style, he would move on and another took his place. On the same subject, the shop manager was very out-of-the-loop when it came to us mechanics and how things worked in the shop. Things would have run more smoothly had he just walked around and talked to us while we worked instead of getting secondhand information.

  • Not so secretive from upper management . Communicate better with all associates

What I like about the company

My department is great for employee recognition which is very nice. We have received food day, prizes and free company clothing for making and breaking goals.

What I dislike about the company

We are reactive and not proactive enough. Sometimes it feels like there try to reinvent the wheel. Leads to confusion for employees.

  • 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.
