The coronavirus pandemic has created uncertainty everywhere, but there’s one thing it’s made clear: Truck drivers are essential workers. Now, Schneider is rewarding that essential work and inspiring performance.

We’re amazed and grateful for how effectively our drivers navigated the challenges with the utmost professionalism. To recognize these efforts, Schneider is offering a special addition to performance pay programs for all company truck drivers — including any drivers who join the company by Aug. 1, 2020.

Some call it hazard pay, we call it Performance Pay Plus; either way, it rewards drivers for the essential work they perform.

Performance Pay Plus program details

Increased performance pay rates will be for Schneider drivers’ third quarter performance results (paid in November 2020, December 2020 and January 2021 — just in time for the holidays).

New pay potential = base pay + standard performance pay + Performance Pay Plus.

Here’s what it looks like for the different types of driving jobs:

Schneider Driver Work Type Maximum Standard Performance Pay
(paid Nov., Dec., Jan.)
Maximum ADDITIONAL Performance Pay Plus
(paid Nov., Dec., Jan.)
Van, Dedicated and Tanker $.04/mile + $.02/mile
Intermodal (Load Pay) $6.00/load + $3.00/load
Intermodal (Mileage Pay) $.06/mile + $.02/mile

*Some accounts/work types have performance pay plans/rates that vary from those listed above.

New challenges = new opportunities

Markets are recovering and freight is normalizing across all Schneider service offerings. While the pandemic has been challenging, new customers have turned to Schneider for their freight solutions, which means there are more driving jobs still hiring — including no-touch freight options.

Schneider was founded during the Great Depression, and we’ve weathered a dozen recessions since then. This pandemic is no different. Jumpstart your recovery today with a proven, resilient leader.

Get hired by Aug. 1 to earn your enhanced performance pay
