Here at Schneider, we offer a four-day work week to our diesel technicians.

We’re programmed to believe that working five days a week is the only way to get the job done. But what if working less days per week is the real key to success? Here at Schneider our diesel technicians find that a four-day work week increases productivity and job satisfaction.

What can you do with an extra day off work every week? Relax? Enjoy a game of golf? Go to an appointment you can’t do on a weekend? There are many things you can do, which in turn offers you and your family a more enjoyable work-life balance.

How can you benefit from Schneider’s 4-day work week?

Here are a few reasons our diesel technicians believe that working four days a week is the best way to go:

  • Reduces travel time = one less day on the commute, thereby saving money at the pump.
  • Having an extra day off each week offers a better work-life balance for you and your family.
  • More time spent with family and friends.
  • Normal scheduled days off during the week allows you to schedule appointments without using any personal time.
  • Three or four consecutive days off.
  • Having that extra day off each week could create additional opportunity to work overtime when available.
  • Set schedule to plan your year on.
  • No swing shifts.
“Great schedule for my work-life balance — I really enjoy the four-day schedule.” -
Matt B., Maintenance Team Leader
“It’s more than a job, it’s a career offering a hire-to-retire philosophy. It is the complete package offering pay, benefits and work-life balance with the four-day work week.” -
Jeremy G., Technical College Recruiter
