Transport liquid bulk products to customers across the nation.
How’d you land that job?
I attended a veteran job fair where I was approached by the owner of Premier Driving Academy and was told I can use my GI Bill to pay my tuition for his school to gain my CDL with no expenses on me and have countless career offers. After graduating, I searched for the top five trucking companies and Schneider was among them. By doing my research on Schneider, I knew it was the company I wanted to contribute my skills to and help succeed.
