Schneider National Inc. announced it is raising company driver pay rates in its tanker division. The pay increase is effective June 16, 2013, and most new drivers will earn an additional $0.02 to $0.03 per mile.
In addition, for a limited time, Schneider is offering a $7,500 sign-on/on-boarding bonus to experienced drivers and driving school graduates joining the tanker division. The bonus is being offered to quickly add drivers for growing, existing accounts and new business in the chemical industry.
Schneider National Bulk Carriers, the company’s tanker division, will add 100 drivers by July 1 to meet customer demand.
Drivers and trucking school graduates can take advantage of regional or over-the-road (solo or team) opportunities in many areas of the U.S. If drivers do not have tanker experience, Schneider will provide the specific training to ensure the smooth, safe transition to pulling tankers. A complete benefits package and paid orientation are also provided, along with predictable work schedules and home time.
