Top 5 reasons my Schneider job rocks

Two Schneider diesel technicians go over information on a clipboard on the shop floor.

There are a lot of reasons why I chose to work at Schneider. My name is Lyndon Tucker and I’m a Diesel Technician working at the Reserve Operating Center (near New Orleans, LA). I started with Schneider in 2014 as a Tank Washer and have worked hard to get to where I am today. People often ask what it is about Schneider that keeps me here. Here are my top five reasons why I feel this job rocks:

1. Work environment

I come to work every day to a safe and clean shop. We have some of the latest technology, and I feel that I have the tools and resources needed to do my job to the best of my ability.

2. Training

The training at Schneider is excellent. We have processes in place to help new technicians know what is expected of them and what they need to do to be able to succeed and excel in their roles.

3. Competitive wages

Pay is not everything in a job, but it is very important. I want to work for a company that values my contributions and compensates me with a wage that is both fair and competitive with other companies in the market. Schneider does the research to ensure that the pay they are offering is in line with other shops in the area.

4. Advancement opportunities

Schneider is a large company with many shops and operating centers across the U.S. and Canada. They also have a strong promote from within culture. What this means for its associates is that there are limitless opportunities to expand and grow your career. There are hundreds of stories of diesel technicians who have been promoted and who have continued to develop their skills. The opportunities are here if you take advantage of them.

5. Values

The core values at Schneider are ones that I can definitely align with: Safety, Integrity, Respect and Excellence. These aren’t just words on a wall — it’s the way we run our shops and the way we conduct business. I enjoy working for a company whose beliefs are ones that I can stand behind with pride.
