Schneider National, Inc., the nation’s largest truckload carrier, announced today that it is immediately hiring 2Ǡ professional truck drivers in Northeastern Illinois and Northwestern Indiana. The company’s need for experienced drivers in the Chicagoland area is fueled by business growth with customers and includes a wide range of professional driving roles.

Experienced solo and team drivers and owner operators are encouraged to apply for the new positions. Local and regional opportunities are available. Most drivers can expect to be home weekly, with many positions offering daily time at home. Experienced drivers can earn an average of $42,000 �“ ์,000 in their first year, with some positions eligible for incentive pay.

Eighty of the 200 available positions are in the company’s Dedicated division and include incentive pay ranging from $1,200 – $5,000. Dedicated account drivers haul freight primarily for one customer and enjoy the familiarity with delivery locations and routes as well as predictable and frequent time at home. Drivers for the company’s Intermodal, Van/Truckload and Bulk divisions are also needed.

Jay Keppen of Woodstock, Ill. has been a Schneider driver since 2007. “I stayed (with Schneider) because they’ve lived up to all their promises – a rare thing in the trucking industry. In fact, I recently met a new Schneider Bulk driver who drove for other small companies for 20 years. He said he was tired of all the broken promises and inconsistencies of the other companies and wanted to retire with a more stable, dependable company.”
