    I'm not an SNI guy, but when I almost took a position with them 7 years ago (right before I got my current gig) the "refresher" was 3 days, no pay but no cost. YMMV.

    Last Thursday I delivered down the road from the house at the end if the dat. Since I was due in on end of day Friday I asked if I could just push out. My dbl asked me to show available because he anticipated needing some local work done. Not a big deal, set the NAT for 0700 and went home.
    On my way in I stopped for a bagel. There was a guy buying bagels for an office group. I helped him carry the stuff out to his car, and as he was thanking me he noticed my SNI shirt and asked what I did for them. I said my name was Roger and I drove regionally. He said "oh you must be Roger Gentle, I'm the GB APM." We chatted a bit and went on our separate ways. I have to say I'm impressed that a guy I've never met and who usually only sees my driver number was able to take my first name and come up with my last.

    Then I spent 5 hours running 3 short loads, drove less than 100 miles, made $120 and went home. On Thursday I drove just under 400 miles, dealing with John "If a yard jockey can get the trailer in there an OTR tractor should be able to as well" Deere and Nestle Purina. Used 12 hours on the 14 and made about $145 dollars.

    The moral of the story is that we're not all just a number - except @91B20H8 but that's his choice- and short haul loads pay.

    I agree, the people I see here do try to know my name. And I appreciate that, I know that's not easy to do in such a large company like Schneider.
     
    91B20H8 and gentleroger Thank this.

    Hey fellow pumpkins, have any of you started as OTR and ended up going local while staying with Schneider? How long were you OTR and what was the process?
