To help contain costs and remain one of the trucking industry’s largest truckload carriers, Schneider National has decided to cut drivers’ holiday pay and begin instituting week-long unpaid furloughs for all employees, from the office and shop staff to those at the executive levels.
Beginning in February, Schneider suspended pay raises, stopped training and hiring inexperienced truck drivers, and announced it would defer retirement plan payments for the remainder of 2009. Now this. It seems that not only are the ‘small fries’ in the trucking industry having trouble staying afloat, but the ‘big boys’ are too.
Even though many of the bigger trucking companies in the US are cutting costs, training, & the hiring of new truck drivers, Driver Solutions is still going strong. The Driver Solutions Network gets you qualified, trained, and hired by a network trucking company before you even attend the CDL training school. So, if you’re looking for a career change and a better way of life, see what Driver Solutions can do for you today!
