Schneider OTR Truck Driving Jobs

OTR truck driving jobs

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.

Find OTR driving jobs

Solo

Freedom to the fullest

Solo OTR driving jobs are perfect if you want total independence and don’t mind being away from home for a few weeks. Get away, explore the country for weeks at a time and maximize your mileage and paycheck potential.

Solo Over-the-Road driver pay:

  • Top drivers earn an average of $86,000 per year.
  • Drivers average $1,140 - $1,400 per week.

Team

The best companionship and compensation

All Team driving jobs are OTR jobs (but not all OTR jobs are Team jobs) because teams are designed to keep the truck moving over a long length of haul. It’s not uncommon for one Team load to cover well over 1,000 miles by alternating partners and getting home on a monthly basis. Teams enjoy each other’s company and can even take a pet on the road, which makes for a great OTR lifestyle away from home.

    Liquid long-haul

Get home on a monthly basis or take advantage of the Tanker division's unique OTR home time package that allows drivers to choose the six days a month that they want off.
