What is Life Like as a Schneider Over-the-Road Truck Driver?

By The Schneider Guy Jul 23, 2015

More than 70% of Schneider drivers get home weekly or more, but many simply love as much of the open road as they can get — and the big money that comes with it. If that’s you, there’s nothing better than becoming a Schneider Over-the-Road (OTR) truck driver.

Schneider not only offers some of the industry’s best OTR driving career opportunities, but Schneider also recognizes that OTR is as much of a lifestyle as it is a career. Here are some ways we make that lifestyle better:

Steady, year-round freight covering all 48 contiguous states – you want to travel the country, so you might as well see it all!

“Hands down, the best part about being a driver is that I get to see places I’ve never been before. I mean, I went to New York City and got paid for it! I even had to go into a cave to deliver a load, which was awesome.” – Chris, OTR driver and military veteran
“I have the best job. When Joe drives, I get to window shop and appreciate all the beautiful views throughout the U.S.” – Sharon Nader, Team OTR driver with husband Joe

Nationwide facility and maintenance network with a wide array of driver amenities and friendly people – no matter where you are, you’ll always feel at home with Schneider.

“I found a home when I found Schneider. I work with some good people here who have drivers’ interests at heart.” – Bob, Schneider OTR driver approaching 5 million miles
“Frankly, I don’t know how you can work for a company like this and not want to do your very best because they’re giving you their very best.” – Cheryl McGauvran, Team OTR driver with husband Perry

Respect for drivers under all circumstances – things happen back home, and if you need to be there, we’ll try to get you there.

Melissa needed to get home to be with her ill husband.

“Schneider never blinked an eye and told me not to worry – They know I’m a hard worker and they respect that.” – Melissa, OTR driver

Something came up, but Debbie’s leader proactively took some extra steps to make sure she got home.

“What other employer would do that? None that I know of! That’s truly putting the person first.” – Debbie, OTR driver

It’s hard to beat the freedom of the open road that you can experience over-the-road with Schneider, and the great benefits that come from working for an 80-year industry leader.

"As an over-the-road driver, I can say that Schneider is an excellent company. They’ll get you work and they’ll get you home on time. This is a good place to be." – Matt

If you drive over-the-road, what do you love about the lifestyle? If you’re considering applying to become a Schneider Over-the-Road driver, is there anything you’d like to know?
