Recruiting Event

Schneider offers many opportunities for prospective truck drivers to meet with recruiters across the country at recruiting events. Making a career move is a big decision, and these events allow you to have a one-on-one conversation regarding potential truck driving opportunities with Schneider.

Treat it as a hiring event or an information-gathering event. Whatever your approach, it is a chance to get your questions answered and learn about all aspects of a driving position — whether you’re a truck driving school graduate or an experienced trucker.

Here is what you can expect at a Schneider truck driver recruiting event:

  • Relaxed atmosphere
    • Stop in at any time during the event
      • No appointment required — walk-ins welcome
      • No need to stay for the full event duration
    • No commitment required when attending an event
  • Detailed discussion topics
    • How to obtain a CDL
    • Available positions near you
    • Pay and benefits
    • Military programs
    • Requirements – endorsements, experience, etc.
    • Terminology clarification
  • Documentation to take home
    • How to apply
    • Benefits
    • Military
    • Contact information
  • On-site application assistance (time permitting)
  • Facility tour (if held at a Schneider location)
  • Free stuff — will vary, but you won’t leave empty handed!
