Credit for Military Experience Program

Schneider hires military veterans for the right reasons and we've been committed to those who serve for over 80 years. Our Credit for Military Experience Program takes that commitment to new heights. If you served in the military, we’ll reward you with higher starting pay — in addition to Apprenticeship Program monthly educational benefit checks .

  • If you drove a truck in the military with a qualifying Primary Specialty (35XX, 1391, 88M, 92F, 2T1X1) and were discharged in the last 24 months, or are actively serving in the Guard or Reserves*, 100% of your time served will be used as Schneider driving experience credit towards pay.
  • Example: 4 years military driving experience = 4 years Schneider driving experience

*Must meet basic driver qualifications

  • If you held a transportation job in the military with a Primary Specialty not listed above and were discharged in the last 12 months, or are actively serving in the Guard or Reserves*, 100% of your time served will be used as Schneider driving experience credit towards pay.
  • Example: 4 years military driving experience = 4 years Schneider driving experience

*Must meet basic driver qualifications

  • If you served in the military in a non-transportation capacity and were discharged in the last 12 months or are actively serving in the Guard or Reserves*, 25% of your time served will be used as Schneider driving experience credit towards pay.

Military Veteran Driver, Randy Twine

“...stability was VERY important to me when I was deployed to Iraq and Saudi Arabia several times in 2002 and 2003. So many people I served with couldn’t believe I had a job actually waiting for me back home. That stress relief is huge...”

Military Hiring

Schneider’s commitment to hiring military personnel stems back to founder Al Schneider. The longtime National Guardsman knew his fellow service men and women were the kind of people he wanted to hire. Military personnel are hard workers and natural leaders — making for valuable employees — and there are many great reasons why military personnel become professional truck drivers. Currently, 28% of our company drivers hired this year at Schneider have military experience.

Military Veteran Driver, jon-ritscher

“What drew me to Schneider is the high percentage of military personnel employed. I used my GI Bill to obtain my commercial driver’s license, and the Schneider Apprenticeship Program helped me apply the military experience I gained to get a strong footing in my new career as a driver.”

Rob Reich

“We continue the tradition of hiring military personnel. Many of us in leadership at Schneider are veterans, so we really see the value of what veterans bring to the company.”

Rob Reich, senior vice president and U.S. Army veteran
