For a truck driver, life on the road doesn’t have to mean you never see home. Regional drivers at Schneider work in the region where they live, so they can get home weekly or more to spend time with friends and family.

If frequent stops at home aren’t your top priority, there are other reasons why being a Regional driver is a great career. Schneider also offers access to local dispatch, thorough training and valuable benefits. Find out what these Regional drivers think about working for Schneider:

Schneider provides its drivers with a great support system, including access to local dispatchers. Located in your area, the dispatchers are familiar with local weather conditions and traffic patterns, so you’re as prepared as you can be while on the road.

“There is a real sense of loyalty and respect at Schneider along with the feeling of camaraderie – you are a member of the team.” –
Richard Barczewski, Regional driver

Monica feels a real connection to her local dispatchers.

“I love them. They treat me like I’m somebody.” –
Monica Abdul-Rashid, Regional driver

By driving close to home, Regional drivers also benefit from regular, predictable time at home. Schneider’s great freight base allows the stability to offer flexible schedules, so you can be where you need to be, when you need to be.

“Although I enjoy what I do, trucking is my job, my family is my life. There is nothing better than putting the keys in the door when I get home because I know who is on the other side.” –
Gerald Bartholomew, Regional driver

Drivers at Schneider also benefit from comprehensive training and tuition reimbursement, as well as a dedication to making sure drivers have the latest technologies at their fingertips.

“Technology is at the core of everything I do, and Schneider is committed to providing its drivers with the latest. All my logs are on my in-cab computer system with a minute-by-minute record. My load assignments are right there in black and white – I always have a record.” –
Gerald Bartholemew, Regional driver
“I don’t think there is another fleet out there with training as rigorous as Schneider.” –
Brad Cook, Regional driver
