Racking up all those miles means you’ll be racking up more money. You can earn up to $73,000 dollars a year, depending on experience and location. In addition to mileage and accessorial pay, your earnings expectations can include performance bonuses and access to unlimited $1,000 referral bonuses.

Schneider moves freight for many of America's largest companies and an impressive array of smaller companies. That diverse portfolio will keep you moving and making money year-round. With so many freight options available, we have the ability to match you up with loads that will maximize your earning potential. Plus, Schneider Over-the-Road truck drivers enjoy 95% no-touch freight — making your job just that much more enjoyable.
Schneider understands the importance of a positive work-life balance. That’s why we do our best to get our drivers home as often as we can. Exact configurations may vary based on where you live, but as a full-time OTR truck driver, you can expect to be home two days for every two weeks out, or choose a part-time truck driving option.
Some Schneider Over-the-Road drivers get home 17 weeks a year through our unique Home Run program, where three drivers share two trucks. You’ll be out for two weeks, racking up great miles, then get home for a week. While you’re enjoying your home time, the other drivers in your pod keep the trucks moving. This program is great for retirees, those on their second career or family-oriented professional drivers. Ask a recruiter if the Home Run program is available in your area.
Schneider’s number-one core value is Safety First and Always. One of the ways we reinforce that message is by offering the best training in the industry. All of our drivers go through paid orientation before hitting the road. The training doesn't stop after your first few days with Big Orange. We continually work with you throughout your career to keep you on top of your game.
Schneider offers tuition reimbursement of up to $6,000 to driving school graduates. Check out our list of preferred truck driving schools and begin your journey to Schneider today.
