    I’m just wanting some opinions on what would be a good fit. Schneider is giving me 5 days out with my 34 at home (regional). Stevens is giving me 3 weeks out (OTR) with 3 days at home. Home time isn’t really a big issue with me. I haven’t heard too much on either company. What are some pros and cons?

    Schnieder may say 5 days out and a 34 at home but you'll end up like Stevens running 3 weeks at a time. They are all basically

    Well when I was with swift, I ran on a dedicated account with Walmart. I was promised 5-6 days out and 2 days home time and that’s what I got every time

    Why is it either of these? I would sooner go back to washing cars before either, Stevens up there with CR England terms negative, Schneider does have a safety but only when it's suits them, Swift has bigger operations however they would hire anyone that has a heartbeat. I am certain Chinatown could point you to better options. He would need your area you live give you a better idea.

    I live in Provo Utah! And it’s not between them. There’s more but these two just suit me better

    I am no fan of reefer but stevens is a reefer company, Utah if I am not mistaken Pride Transport hauls out of Utah, I have heard good things from there however I recommend Chinatown weigh in. If you rush it your likely end with a company you may wish you waited I have known several drivers who rush and regret their choice.
     
    Snowshoes Thanks this.

    I keep applying to Pride but I don’t hear back from anyone. I did reefer on a dedicated account with Walmart so I don’t think it’s that bad
