Need for Driver Recruiters

  • Field incoming calls and make outbound calls to qualify potential candidates

  • Meet weekly and monthly hiring goals
  • Maintain customer service with candidates and other driver recruiting associates

Benefits of working as a Schneider Recruiter

Our current Driver Recruiters say it best:

Recruiter Lance Kaster

"Driver recruiting is a fast-paced, fun environment. Every day I get to help people better their lives by helping them find a career in a field that has many opportunities. I love knowing that what I do helps individuals provide for their families and helps keep the American economy moving."

Driver Recruiter, Jay Hull

“The best thing that I love about my job as a Military recruiter with Schneider is the ability to be able to help other fellow veterans out with employment. When a veteran leaves the military, it is a very scary feeling for some. You are not sure what the future will hold for you and your family. Will you find a good job to support your family? As a military driver recruiter I can help make that happen for so many of the candidates that I interview.”

Driver Recruiter, Shawna

“Driver Recruiting is very flexible with time off. My job allows me to have a great work-life balance.”

Driver Recruiter, 4 years with Schneider
