Over-the-Road Truck Driving Jobs
Reasons to be an OTR truck driver at Schneider:
If you want to hit the open road and explore the country, you'll love life as Over-the-Road Truck Driver. You'll average 600 miles per haul, enjoying the freedom that comes with a great truck driving career. This is one of the best ways to become a million-mile driver, and if you’re feeling really adventurous, you might consider our Jet-Set OTR driving jobs.
Bigger Money, Better Benefits
Racking up all those miles means you’ll be racking up more money. In fact, we just increased mileage rates for all Van Truckload OTR drivers. That means you can earn up to $79,000 dollars a year, depending on experience and location. In addition to mileage and accessorial pay, earn performance bonuses and take advantage of unlimited referral bonuses up to $3,000. Our long-haul driving jobs also include unique benefits package like medical insurance, dental and vision coverage, paid time off and a 401(k) program with company match.
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 by continually refining our network. We offer more than a dozen potential home time configurations, but generally, full-time OTR truck drivers can expect to be home two days for every two weeks out, or choose a part-time truck driving option.
Example OTR home time configurations
- 11 days out, 3 days home
- 14 days out, 7 days home (three drivers share two trucks)
- 3 weeks out, 5 days home (Jet-Set driving jobs)
- 28 days out, 5 days home
Ask a recruiter (800-44-PRIDE) about available OTR home time configurations near you.
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 $7,000 driving school or refresher course tuition reimbursement. Check out our list of preferred truck driving schools and begin your journey to Schneider today.
