Schneider Adding 75 Drivers to Haul Harley-Davidson Freight
March 11, 2014
Truckload carrier Schneider National has created 75 new jobs for professional truck drivers looking to transport some unique freight.
They will be hauling motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson’s engines and parts from Missouri, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania to various points around the United States.
The Wisconsin-based carrier is hiring experienced drivers in Kansas City, Mo., Menomonee Falls, Wis., and York, Penn., to support its new business with Harley-Davidson. To kick-start the hiring process, the company is offering sign-on bonuses of $7,000 for teams and $3,500 for solo drivers.
“Our team drivers can expect to average 5,000 to 6,000 miles per week, which can equate to $80,000 per year,” said Rob Reich, Schneider’s vice president. “Those who drive solo will run about 2,800 miles a week and earn up to $66,000 a year.”
He said drivers on this dedicated account will work predictable schedules and enjoy weekly home time.
