    Shop around before choosing.
    Which state and nearest city/town?
    We can give you several choices to compare and probably much better pay.
    Edit:
    Do you want to take a pet along?
    Do you have endorsements?
    Do you want to run all over the USA?

    I’m finishing the last week of the three week training with Schneider for new CDL grads. The training has been good, and they definitely emphasize the authority of the driver to stop the truck if conditions aren’t safe. The training is a lot shorter than most other companies, which could be good or bad depending on your perspective. Most of the instructors I’ve had have been with the company at least 5+ years.

    As a starter company, they seem above average from what I’ve heard about other mega carriers. Pay is definitely the biggest downside. I went with them because I was looking for something pretty specific and they had an opening that met those needs.
     
    Opus and Munch75 Thank this.

    Do they offer good training on coupling and uncoupling? I’m thinking about a refresher course.

    If a company requires you to use their doctor for your physical they are not a good company.
    That was always my first question before I would move along to other questions..
