GREEN BAY, Wis. (March 6, 2018) — For over 80 years, Schneider (NYSE: SNDR) has been dedicated to those who serve, diligently hiring veterans and active military members to join its ranks. Monster, a global online employment solution for job seekers and employers who need great people, took notice of Schneider’s leadership in military support and put it on the Best Companies for Veterans list for the second year in a row.
To assemble the list, Monster gathered a panel of veteran-hiring experts and asked them to nominate companies. Monster then collaborated with Military.com to develop a methodology that evaluated each company’s veteran hiring, onboarding and retention practices. Company data was collected and analyzed, resulting in the Top 10 list.
“We are honored that Monster has recognized us once again, but the spotlight truly belongs on the Schneider associates who bring their military experience to our organization,” said Rob Reich, Schneider senior vice president and a veteran of the U.S. Army. “We are a strong, successful company because they are in our ranks today, and we are proud that 22 percent of our associates have military experience.”
Because Schneider knows that those who have served – or continue to serve – their country bring an exceptionally high level of commitment and skill to their work, the company offers specific programs to ease transition and ensure long-term career success. These include:
- Credit for Military Experience program that converts military experience to Schneider experience toward pay
- Apprenticeship Program that allows veterans to earn a monthly educational benefit check from the VA in addition to a Schneider paycheck – up to $1,266 a month – depending on years of military service
- Tuition reimbursement available for eligible candidates to pay for truck driving school
- Guaranteed home time for weekend drill and annual training – no paid time off required
- Extended benefits and differential pay if deployed for up to 18 months
Schneider’s military commitment can help current military service members and veterans reach their goals. For more information, visit schneiderjobs.com/company-drivers/military.
