    I live near Mount Pocono Pa . Shneider is looking for regional drivers for there Lowes account. Recruiter says out 5 days home 2. Pay starts at .040 mile
    2000 to 2200 miles week.
    Anyone have experiance with this account? Looking for the facts from another driver.

    I was on The Home Depot account with Schneider, but have been live unloaded at various Lowe's places while driving OTR, it felt like more-less the same companies. While you wait to hear from someone who is on Lowe's, here is my top advice from my days on The Home Depot account.

    Check if you'll need to do yard-jockeying and if you are going to get paid for it.

    I needed to do yard-jockeying each delivery on The Home Depot account around Denver CO and I was not getting paid for it. Yard-jockeying meant I needed to drop the incoming, loaded trailer somewhere in the yard, take an empty from dock #1 and drop it in the yard, take trailer from dock #2 to dock #1, take loaded trailer to dock #2, then connect to the empty trailer, it's not enjoyable doing it when it's raining or it's freezing outside. No one told me I would be doing yard-jockeying before I started, that's why I am advising you to check.

    Alot of moving trailers around. I guess they dont have there own jockey so I would think that's part of it. Right?

    Do they pay ? That's the big ?
    Need like 800.00 to 1000.00 week. Is that realistic?

    Last time I delivered to The Home Depot and Lowe's places (a few months ago) they did not have spotter trucks, that's why The Home Depot (and probably Lowe's) use Schneider drivers to move trailers around

    It's best to ask the recruiter on that specific account if they are going to pay for yard-jockeying, not all Schneider regions pay the same and it may depend on your level of experience/time with the company.

    It may not seem like a big deal in the beginning if you don't get paid for yard-jockeying but after a while seeing drivers from other companies coming in/out for quick live unloads and them passing time watching you doing drop'n'hooks around the yard when it's hot, cold or rainy outside, it can end up being a deal breaker.
