Your earning potential will depend on which driving option you choose, but as a Tanker truck driver, you can expect to see slightly higher compensation because of the work that you do. Hauling hazardous materials requires extra care and Schneider recognizes that. New drivers can earn between $38,000 and $45,000 annually, while experienced drivers can expect to see between $45,000 and $65,000 a year.Tanker Bonuses
Tanker drivers are also eligible for valuable benefits like medical insurance, dental and vision coverage, vacation days and a 401(k) program with company match.
There are a variety of driving opportunities within Schneider’s Tanker division. Whether you’re looking for more miles or more home time, we have an option to fit your needs. If you want to travel the country and rack up big miles, go with an Over-the-Road or Team Tanker position. If you’re looking to drive closer to home so you can get there more often, a Regional or Local Tanker truck driving job would be a better fit.
At Schneider, we understand the importance of work/life balance. It’s the reason we do our best to get our drivers home as often as we can. Our Tanker drivers enjoy a unique time off schedule. It’s simple: You pick the six days you want off each month and we’ll work with you to make that happen. This system allows you to plan for vacations and home time in advance. We also have Local Tanker driving opportunities, which get drivers home daily.
“I would never say anything but great things about the home time that Schneider gives you ... When I put in for my time off, I am pretty much guaranteed that I will be in my car and on my way home when I said I need to be. With a lot of other drivers I’ve talked to at other companies, that doesn’t happen.”
- Ken Balog, former Tanker driver, now driver trainer
