Training and mentoring opportunities

As you become a more experienced truck driver, you’ll know first-hand what it takes to succeed on the road. After you’ve been here six months, Schneider offers several opportunities to share your experience with new drivers — and get rewarded for it:

Training engineer (TE) – Run for about a week with a driver during his/her final stage of training, providing a positive first exposure to life on the road. Enjoy additional daily pay and bonus opportunities. Train full-time or part-time and earn up to $10,000 more than an average solo driver.

Driver Instructor – Teach new Schneider drivers how to drive safely and efficiently. Coach, mentor and onboard drivers as they attend training, and evaluate their skills to ensure they will be successful driver associates.

Driver Trainer – Act as a subject matter expert for new Schneider drivers. Take drivers out on the road to help them gain experience and show them how to properly complete inspections and common truck driving maneuvers.

Driver Mentor – Team up with new drivers for four-week periods to help them gain experience and increase their confidence on the road. Mentors earn $1,000 per week, plus $0.20 per mile for all dispatched miles the truck runs (both their miles and their mentee’s).

It was time for a change, and Schneider offered me the opportunity to work in the office. I really liked learning this side of the business, and the transition was seamless. The opportunities are definitely there for drivers.
