Fay searched for an established company with demonstrated tenure and came upon Schneider’s website.
“It’s incredible that Schneider has been in business for over 80 years,” Fay said. “Plus, I could tell from its website that Schneider really did live out its core values.”
Fay started out at Schneider in 2003 as an OTR driver and has been working closely with her team ever since.
“There’s great communication at Schneider,” said Fay. “I’ve been working with the same leader for years. If there’s an issue, I can get an instant answer or confirmation.”
In addition to having a supportive team, Fay said she finds real satisfaction in her job every day.
“I love the challenge of getting a load delivered on-time and satisfying the customer,” Fay said. “I have a daily feeling that I’ve done something right.”
How she rediscovered her passion
Being able to see the country has also been one of the highlights for Fay as a truck driver; it’s the main reason why she continues to drive OTR instead of regional or local.
“I like going places and getting a change of scenery,” Fay said. “I’ve been to Canada and really enjoy driving in the southern and western states.”
Fay looks forward to retirement someday but will work as long as she’s able. After all, she has more than 10 grandchildren she enjoys bringing out on the road to see the country with her, and she isn’t willing to give that up just yet!
