Clarification: Schneider academies will train experienced drivers only

| 1/8/2009

Wisconsin-based Schneider National has issued a statement pointing out that the company has moved to a “100 percent experienced driver hiring model, resulting in the elimination of its inexperienced driver training program.” Schneider will continue to offer training to experienced drivers.

The company also stated that “As a result of this business change, some training associates – who are drivers themselves – will no longer work in a training role and will move back to driver roles within the company or may ultimately choose to pursue other positions within the broader Schneider organization. There are no layoffs, nor are any training academies closing due to this change.”
