Schneider is continually seeking new and innovative ways to engage with both prospective and current Schneider truck drivers. Facebook chats have been one of the most well-received methods we’ve employed this year, and we feature two types of chats described below.
1. Facebook Live events – topical driver recruiting chats
These chats are typically held weekly, but they vary in timing,
The full Facebook Live chat schedule is below, but our most recent Facebook Live event, for example, focused on Schneider’s partnership with Women in Trucking and what it’s like to be a woman truck driver, with Schneider recruiter Brittany hosting alongside special guest Ellen Voie,

Host: Todd Jadin, Schneider talent management and associate relations leader, plus potential special guests
Format: Each Facebook Live event chat runs for two hours. Todd provides an opening statement addressing any focus areas for the evening, then responds to text questions within each Facebook event. He will then go on Facebook Live for a designated amount of time before concluding with more text responses after the live video portion.
For example, check out the September 20 Facebook chat.
