Benefits are the difference between a mediocre compensation package and one that truly provides for your future. See how Schneider’s competitive benefits package can help you prepare for major life events.
A leading 401(k) plan with company match
Get a better job now and a better retirement later with a 401(k) plan (pre-tax, Roth post-tax or combination) that’s consistently a step above the competition.

Schneider’s match starts after only three months (industry average is one year) and will match $.50 for each $1.00 of the first 6% of your contribution.
