What will Schneider’s orientation be like?
What resources are available for new Schneider drivers?
- Your orientation materials: You’ll get tons of helpful information during orientation. It may feel overwhelming at times, but you’ll be glad to have access to it

We’re moving from an existing platform called “Crossroads” to an exciting new portal called “Schneider Compass” in 2017! We also send helpful info straight to your truck’s mobile communications platform.
