Schneider National Inc has made the G I Jobs Top 100 Military-Friendly Employers list for the seventh straight year. Schneider ranked 12 on the list, earning acknowledgment for the programs and benefits it offers to past and present military personnel.
G I Jobs’ 2013 Top 100 Military Friendly Employers honors the top 2% of US companies that are doing the most to embrace America’s service members and veterans. More than 5,000 companies were ranked this year based on survey results that assess the strength of a company’s military recruiting program, including the percentage of new hires with prior military service and all policies in place to recognize military service.
Schneider National’s deep military roots date back to the company’s founder, Al Schneider, a National Guardsman. Today, the company continues its commitment of providing rewarding careers to those with a military background through specific programs to ease transition and ensure long-term career success:
•Apprenticeship Program—Because of Schneider’s long-standing commitment to current and former military personnel, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has accepted Schneider into its exclusive Apprenticeship Program. During new hires’ first year working for Schneider, they are eligible to earn a monthly educational benefit check from the VA in addition to a Schneider paycheck—up to $1,069 each month depending on years of service.
•ROTC Pays Program—Schneider joined with the Army training command, which allows college students to select an employer of their choice prior to graduation. Students who choose Schneider know the company will grant them an interview and hire them if an open position meets their skill sets.
•The Schneider National Military Owner-Operator Program—This initiative provides military personnel with the tools, training, and support to become successful owner-operators. This program helps new owner-operators obtain a previously owned truck through a special no-money-down, no-credit check lease.
•Army Reserve Employer Partnership—Schneider and the Army Reserve work together to recruit, train, and employ individuals interested in both serving the nation and pursuing a career in the transportation and logistics industry.
Coupled with the benefits package Schneider provides to all associates, military personnel can also expect:
•Extended benefits and differential pay if deployed for up to 18 months
•Excused time off for weekend drill and annual training (no vacation time required)
•Quick-hire process, allowing active military to apply, interview, and be accepted two months prior to separation
•Nationwide opportunities throughout Schneider’s network of offices, maintenance facilities and operating centers
