New Credit for Military Experience Program
Schneider has been committed to those who serve for 80 years, and our new Credit for Military Experience Program takes that commitment to new heights. If you served in the military, we’ll reward you with higher starting pay.
- If you drove a truck at some point during your time in the military and were discharged in the last 12 months, or are actively serving in the Guard or Reserves*, 100% of your time served will be used as Schneider driving experience credit towards pay and benefits.
- Example: 4 years military driving experience = 4 years Schneider driving experience
*Must meet basic driver qualifications and have qualifying Primary Specialty
- If you served in the military in a non-transportation capacity and were discharged in the last 12 months or are actively serving in the Guard or Reserves, 25% of your time served will be used as Schneider driving experience credit towards pay and benefits.
- Example: 4 years military experience = 1 year Schneider driving experience
*Must meet basic driver qualifications
Schneider understands that being a member of the military reserves can bring uncertainty in times of need. We’ll work with you to accommodate your military commitments and we guarantee you’ll have a place with us when your call of duty is fulfilled.
“...stability was VERY important to me when I was deployed to Iraq and Saudi Arabia several times in 2002 and 2003. So many people I served with couldn’t believe I had a job actually waiting for me back home. That stress relief is huge...”
Schneider’s commitment to hiring military personnel stems back to founder Al Schneider. The longtime National Guardsman knew his fellow service men and women were the kind of people he wanted to hire. Military personnel are hard workers and natural leaders — making for valuable employees. Currently, 28% of our company drivers hired this year at Schneider have military experience.
“The experiences you’ve had in the military are particularly valuable at Schneider. As a result, (military professionals) have been very promotable individuals within Schneider.”– Don Schneider, former CEO and Chairman of the Board
