A career in truck driving doesn’t have to be inconsistent and unpredictable. A Schneider Dedicated driver works with one primary Dedicated customer, benefitting from predictable freight, familiar lanes and maximum home time.

Consistency isn’t the only perk of Dedicated driving with Schneider. Dedicated drivers also benefit from steady paychecks, solid relationships and continual training. Find out more about these perks, as described by actual Schneider Dedicated drivers:

Schneider Dedicated drivers are able to get home weekly or more, typically on the same days each week. Your family and friends will be able to count on you being home when you need to be.

“The health benefits are good, vacation time is good, the schedule is flexible. I can move days around to get my weekly miles in, and I’m home pretty much every weekend.”Frederick Jordan, Dedicated driver

Rod appreciates that Schneider’s regular home time allows him to contribute to his family farm.

“I have around four weeks of vacation each year. I rely on those extra days to spend time on the farm bailing hay, planting crops – whatever needs to be done.”Rod Ehrhardt, Dedicated driver

Schneider’s freight base includes some of the largest companies in the U.S., so you’ll never have to worry about having enough freight to stay busy. This also means you can count on consistent paychecks and building valuable relationships with the people you work with everyday.

“I like the independence of driving and the security that comes with working for a great company. It’s like Schneider is letting me run my own business while keeping me safe under their umbrella.”Ruby Langkau, Dedicated driver
“I’ve also been an Over-the-Road trucker, but Dedicated is a better fit for me. I know what I’m going to do from one day to the next and have consistent freight to haul.”Frederick Jordan, Dedicated driver

As a Dedicated driver, you’ll also have access to the best training in the industry, and not just during orientation. Schneider works with their drivers continually to make sure they have the know-how they need to hit the road, safely.

“Schneider means it when they say ‘safety first’. They make sure everyone’s on the same page with safety by explaining it in a way that everyone can understand.”Keisha Orange, Dedicated driver
“They bring us in annually to review our books and have us drive to make sure we haven’t picked up any bad habits. Schneider keeps their drivers up to date on procedures.”Deb Anderson, Dedicated driver
“The trainers are willing to bend over backwards to help you with whatever you need to learn, even something as simple as adjusting mirrors or as complex as new technology.”Timothy Marino, Dedicated driver
