Complaint / review text:
This is one of the Biggest Schams out there right Now. Schneider is a trucking company that will school you on the road to be a trucker.
They send you to "School" and you work you're ass off to get through the 4 week training to get you're own truck. They pay you $0.25 per mile when you finish training and tell you if you can work for us for 1 full year, you do not have to pay for the training.
So here is where it gets a little tricky, you have to go to there place for 2 weeks to learn everything about driving the truck. (NO PAY FOR THIS) you then take a teast and if you pass you are now paid $200 a week for the rest of your training. So you learn for 10 days how to get a load and drop your loads. If you do not pass that test you stay 1 more week for NO PAY at the end of 10 days you and another student are asked to climb into a truck for who knows how long with an over the road trainer. And all the cash you have been paid right now is $200
When you finish you're over the road training you are then givin a 3rd party DMV driving teast where no matter how bad you are you still pass. So then you are issued a beat up old ass truck and you camp out every night and day in this bunck behind the drivers seat. Living on $200 a week untill you f* up out on the road. They pull you back in tell you to clean out the truck and then bill you the $200 you got for passing you teast so you can live out on the road. You fight for you're job back and when you are doing this you get a friendly call saying that the "SCHOOL" you went to is now $1,500.00 and that you broke the contrack.
The reality is Schneider breaks the contrack by firing you. I offered to stay on as a non-driver and they said no. Then i found out that the "SCHOOL" is not a real school. They are scaming people trying to get a class A Lic. And saying thay have to pay this money back when in reallity it's not even a real school. If it was a real school they would have a student loan and grants but you do not have to pay any of this money back. You did not break any contract. Schneider broke the contract by not offing a non driving job. I would have quit if i was told to clean the toilets and then i would have broken the Contract
