Drivers asked for it, and Schneider has responded. We’re excited to announce that in 2020, company drivers across all service offerings will receive holiday pay.

Holiday pay details

Starting Jan. 1, 2020, drivers will receive six paid holidays:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Fourth of July
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas

The amount of holiday pay is determined by Schneider tenure.

More details will be shared later this year to Schneider’s current drivers during benefits open enrollment period and drivers applying to join the company.
