    I didn't have to go to Chicago. They just road tested me then sent me off with a local driver for three days. I'm pretty sure I had less experience than you at the time. Probably had to with transferring from a different Schneider division, though. I had their system down by then and just need to learn how to deal with rail specific stuff.

    Just an updating of this thread:
    How is Schneider Intermodal at the moment?
    Anybody work out of the Worcester, Mass. yard?
    How are hours, runs and weekly take home pay after taxes?
    Thanks in advance!

    I worked out of Worcester. If you run hard you should make $1100-1400 per week. You go to the same places weekly. Ken is great he is the mgr there. It's an easy job.
     
    Surfer Joe Thanks this.

    Schneider Regional Intermodal absolutely sucks. In the Northeast, their direct ads advertise "up to $90,000 per year". This is absolutely untrue and no driver is making anywhere near this, regardless of experience.

    This company will suck you dry and run you like a dog for really, really poor money.
    They even make every effort in orientation class to teach you of the 'evils' of unions; including scare tactics.... " If you join a union, you are signing a contract"!

    Yeah, a contract to get better pay, a pension, and more tolerable conditions.

    Schneider definately does not want that; means less money for all the corn fed golf buddy alpha uber rich males at the top of management. Of course they don't want unions.

    And back to the pay;
    $350.00-$750.00 a week for a 7 day work week at 12 hours or more per day, every day.
    All the drivers are being exploited in the worst degree.
    Anybody that says anything to the contrary is not being honest. Period.

    Stay away from Schneider whether it be Intermodal, OTR, Tanker or whatever.
    That this company is even able to operate and acquire such massive support as well as profits is really an indicator of the corporate decay and mind control over the weak, desperate, and vulnerable employees that has so greatly influenced our country in these modern times.

    Did you work there? If so for how long? I thought regional intermodal was a 5 or 5.5 day work week?

    I drive for Schneider Intermodal in the southeast, Fairburn/Atlanta. It seems to be 180 degrees from the northeast as described by Surfer Joe. I run regional. I make good $$, based on my experience. They advertise, ‘make up to $72000’. I’m home several times during the week, and some times nightly. Management pretty much assigns the loads and leaves me alone. I wish the trucks were faster (60 mph governed) and that we could use the phone while driving. But there’s nothing I can do about either situation as long as I work for them.

    Exact reason I asked Surfer Joe to clarify all of the information he put out there. Not saying it is all a bowl of cherries but I am a little suspicious. I seem to recall past posts by the same screen name that are always very negative and doom and gloom about other companies & topics.

    The reason I even care is I see intermodal openings near where I live in Syracuse, NY on a regular basis, including now with a current $10,000 hiring bonus included, which also makes me suspicious.

    3 weeks and no reply. Exactly what I expected.

    It really is gloom and doom , John.
    True, the shift that you will sign up for is for 5 days and you have the choice to work an xtra day/s per week if you want them.
    Here's the problem; in my area, regional pays far, far less than local. Regional pays .36 CPM plus 2 loads per day at $30.00 per load. That comes to about $1050.00 per week before deductions for 2500 miles per week, 2 loads per day. Each working day to drive this many miles are at least 12 hours per day if everything runs the way that it's supposed to.
    After taxes and health insurance, you'll be lucky to be left with $700.00-$750.00 take home. And thats a big maybe.
    You do see a lot of doom and gloom coming from me because, for some reason, most drivers find out just how poorly treated and paid that they really are in these jobs after just a few months and then completely move on. No sharing low pay information, no nothing. They just vanish.
    I've made a point to do my best to communicate what is really going on with all the large, mega trucking companies.
    You'd think that laws would be passed and that all kinds of news stories would be written in a "Grapes of Wrath" type scenario but, alas, not so.
    Of course, the drivers are always free to move on if the pay is so low and they do; in enourmous numbers; to the tune of a whopping nearly 100% a year.
