    Anybody have any insight on the Schneider dedicated tractor supply run? I'm in Denver, so I'll be servicing CO, NM, WY, UT, and the lower part of MT and SD. Was thinking about the Regional or OTR positions as well?

    Don't know about tractor supply other than they may have some heavy freight so I'd hope for a lift gate trlr.
    If Schneider left ya alone and you dealt w a DC mgr it might be ok
    Sounds like a good run territory wise.

    Use to work for CFI and did a lot of Tractor Supply.
    When delivering to a store, they do the unloading without you in truck.
    A few stores have docks others have ramps.

    Were most of the stores a pain to back into?

    For company it’s not a bad gig. It does have some seasonal ups and downs. Stop count might keep changing, the most I have heard is 5/6. Sometimes the loads come up for choice, rates just not there.

    Hope its better than what they offered me to drive Dollar General, .37cpm and 14.00 per hour to unload. What a joke, goto Legend they give you 50 cpm to start.

    I dunno what the money is, but considering the area and most tractor supply stores being new or relatively new - that should be about as laid back and easy as it gets for a job at mega carrier.

    Plus, every tractor supply store I can think of has a grocery store and/or decent places to eat within short walking distance. Stores appear easy to maneuver. They’re either a nice standalone store with decent size lot, or they’re in an older (low traffic) plaza.
