    Help 2 Things to know for Schneider Orientation

    I just finished my first day of orientation here at Schneider and I want to share a few things with people that are looking for some info. Orientation curriculum has now changed to at least 3 weeks from 15 days. The class starts at 7 a.m. each morning (most recruiters tell you 8 a.m).

    The physical testing IS fairly easy, just be sure to BREATHE!!! The max heartrate is set high enough for you that you shouldn't have to worry. (I'm 5'9 and 36 yrs old. My max was 166 a minute and I didn't get over 120) They only take your blood pressure one time and it's before beginning the test. I want to also emphasize that while I am very overweight and out of shape I do not have a problem with my blood pressure or heart so be sure to take your meds!

    One last thing; they do have a dress code and don't allow sleeveless shirts, sweatpants, holes in clothing, dirty clothing, expect good hygiene, nothing with curse words or adult content or meaning, suggestive or adult content tattoos must be covered, and no facial piercings.

    Like I said though, this is my first day so I will post more info later if I think it would be worthwile to share Have a good day!!!

    No wonder they are suffering from a driver shortage. They want people that will represent them in a professional manner!

    No sweat pants allowed? That's just unacceptable

    I'm in Indianapolis. I think the dress code is just for those of us in Orientation/Training. I see a lot of other drivers here at the OC wearing sweats, etc.

    So today I started being "Schneiderized" by the driver trainer here at the operating center. The day started with learning how to do logbooks then we were assigned to a trainer to take us out to do pre-trip, coupling, basic driving and safety skills, simulator, backing skills, and close maneuvering skills today and tomorrow. The trainer we are currently with does daily evaluations on us and has a HUGE role in determining if we will be hired or not. (We find out if we're hired at the end of this first week)

    If anyone has any questions that I'm not answering on here, please feel free to ask! I'm one of those people that wants to know who,what, when, where, how, and why about EVERYTHING. I'm hoping to answer some questions that I was looking for myself on here about the orientation and training process.
