Are you looking to work for a company that not only allows for professional growth but encourages it? Schneider prides itself on providing its driver, warehouse, diesel mechanic and office associates with countless opportunities for not only development but advancement.
A great example of such an opportunity can be found in Jay Hull’s career with Schneider.
From the military to a driving career
Jay joined the U.S. Army when he was 17, ultimately spending 24 years in military service, with a variety of roles, including driver, recruiter, career counselor and chemical, nuclear and biological warfare specialist.
After retiring from the military in 2005, he drove for a small company for a few years, which is where he met his wife, Robin, who was a dispatcher at the time. Robin ended up getting a job with Schneider, and she referred Jay — she got a referral bonus and he got a sign-on bonus.
Jay started working for Schneider in 2012 out of the Chicago, Ill., Intermodal yard as a Regional Intermodal driver. After nine months, Jay transitioned to a training engineer and then began driving the 2008 Ride of Pride truck that hauled Intermodal freight out of Chicago in 2014.
In 2015, Jay was selected to drive the Schneider Ride of Pride truck which traveled across the country attending job fairs, visited driving schools and even participated in Wreaths Across America. Watch the video below from 2015, and read Jay’s 2016 reflection on being a Ride of Pride driver.
