OTR

What is Over-the-Road (OTR) truck driving?

Over-the-Road truck drivers, also called long-haul truckers, specialize in hauling freight long distances, as opposed to regional or local routes. You’ll typically be on the road a couple weeks at a time, though you have many options! You’ll drive a “sleeper cab” tractor with a comfortable bed in back so you can sleep at a full-service Schneider facility or truck stop. Join thousands of drivers loving the OTR lifestyle.

Why choose OTR driving?

  • Paid Travel
    Paid Travel

    Stop wishing you could see the country, and start seeing it — while getting paid to do it! If you want to get away, hit the open road and satisfy your travel bug, there’s no better way than the long-haul lifestyle.

  • Longer hauls

    Speaking of longer hauls, let other drivers mess with short hauls and multiple stops a day. With an OTR trucking job, get under a load, trip plan to meet your needs and rack up the big miles you long for.

  • Bigger money

    All those miles ultimately means more money. You’ll get home less, but you’re OK with that because you want to earn more. As the odometer climbs, so does your paycheck. Bring home the big bucks driving OTR.


Schneider Team OTR Truck Driving Jobs

Team

The best companionship and compensation

All Team driving jobs are OTR jobs (but not all OTR jobs are Team) because Teams are designed to keep the truck moving over a long haul. It’s not uncommon for one Team load to cover well over 1,000 miles by alternating Team partners.

Teams deliver premium freight — 98 percent of which is no-touch — earning the most money and driving the newest trucks. Plus, Team partners enjoy each other’s company, a nice touch within the OTR lifestyle away from home.
