Schneider National Inc announced it is adding 60 oilfield truck drivers to support its energy business on the Marcellus Shale Formation. The company is offering a $5,000 sign-on bonus to experienced drivers to join. No oilfield driving experience is required; Schneider will provide specific training.
Positions are based within a 75-mile radius of Mansfield and Wilkes-Barre PA. Relocation assistance will be provided to interested candidates living outside the hiring areas. Schneider drivers working on the Marcellus Shale can expect to earn up to $60,000 per year with a paid orientation and comprehensive benefits package. Most drivers will also enjoy daily time at home while transporting materials into and out of the oilfields.
“Schneider is very excited to grow its presence in the area and provide stable, well-paying jobs,” says John Miller, general manager of Schneider’s Energy Transportation Services. “We have a large base of drivers doing similar work in Texas at fracking sites and the feedback is terrific. The compensation and amount of available work we provide has had a great impact on upgrading the lifestyles for residents in that area. We look forward to having the same impact in this area.”
The sign-on bonus and relocation assistance will be offered for a limited time only.
