GREEN BAY, Wis. — Schneider, one of the nation’s largest truckload carriers, is immediately hiring 200 professional truck drivers in Houston and the surrounding area to meet a wide variety of growing business needs across its customer base. The greatest opportunity is within the company’s tanker division, which is looking to add 100 company drivers and owner-operators to its ranks based on expanding business in the Lone Star State.

Company Tanker drivers earn up to $76,000 per year, which includes an 8–10 percent increase (an average of $4,000 per year). The company driver pay increase comes on the heels of Schneider’s $0.10½ per mile compensation increase for tanker owner-operators last month.

In addition to the Tanker positions, Schneider has 100 openings across its Dedicated, Intermodal, Van Truckload and Port Dray divisions. Driver time at home options range from daily to weekly with annual earnings up to $60,000 ($73,000 for team drivers) along with up to a $5,000 sign-on bonus. Local and over-the-road opportunities also exist for owner-operators. Owner-operators may choose from percentage or mileage lease options and may be eligible for up to a $5,000 lease-on incentive.

Experienced drivers, driving school graduates and owner-operators are encouraged to visit www.schneiderjobs.com to view the many different opportunities and apply online.

“Customer demand in Houston is incredibly strong across all of our divisions,” said Rob Reich, Schneider’s vice president. “Unlike traditional trucking jobs, Schneider has a driving career to fit any lifestyle, with over 75 percent of our drivers getting home weekly or better. Today’s drivers are looking for work-life balance, a breadth of career options and great take-home pay. On all those fronts, Schneider delivers.”

Throughout April, recruitment sessions and hiring events will occur at various locations around Houston to answer questions about open positions while allowing candidates to apply in person. A list of dates and times for these events are available at http://schneiderjobs.com/company-drivers/recruiting-events/state-details/tx.

Schneider has two operating facilities in Houston: 1700 Central Street and 1415 Penn City Road.
