    Most likely they will require a refresher course. Nothing new nearly every out fit will require it of u havent driven in 3 years or more

    they said nothing about a refresher course
    3 weeks
    1st week orientation physical Learning the Schneider way
    2nd week on the road with another driver
    3rd week simulator more paper work and then on my own
    unless that's their refresher course.

    ok, coming in as inexperienced then according to SNI. I would guess your time out with TE will be shorter than most.

    As for any other questions you have, spend some time cruising the new driver threads. Plenty on here. Should answer most of what you have.

    A buddy of mine has been out of it for nine months The last co.he worked for was all autos. Because he hadn't shifted in a little over a year SNI is making him go through the whole 18 day course

    From what I understand the 18 day course is also the full orientation. A week of which is spent with a trainer on the road

    I had interview this week for Midwest 7-7. Asked about a refresher and was told 10 years off road. Been off road since last Sept.

    Does Schneider have a pet policy for OTR?
    Pay during training?
    Am interested in Tanker. They have all kinds of opportunities in tanker. Appears 5 weeks training for tanker. What do you think? Enough?
    I'm thinking of moving back down to Houston. Grew up there. Take a year or two to actually move. Have to sell this house first. OTR.... could live in Houston, Freeport, Austin, San Antonio. That doesn't include working out of Dallas... not ruled out.

    I have posted some in another active thread in Schneider.

    I can't help but wonder if this sensor was rigged to never read below 20* to keep drivers from idling???
