In an act of lunacy Schitter National has stripped drivers of there use of the safe driver entered truck route directions and is forcing drivers to use the totally fouled up Qualcomm GPS which the damn fools in the directions dept have totally screwed up. 

If u like driving next to Kindergartens, playgrounds, grade schools, churchs, high schools, thru residential neighborhoods, down streets with low hanging tree branchs and thru downtown urban centers and worse you're gonna love being forced to use the GPS Schitter has provided the drivers.

Why did Schitter stop providing the safe driver entered truck route directions you ask?  Cause an executive airhead cheesehead in Green Bay has figured out that using only the GPS can shave a few tenths of a mile off the route trip and damn the safety issues cause with Schitter it's profit first and safety second! 

And the street level directions are just as fouled up.  Schitter should be ashamed of itself letting its greed get the better of safety.  Only when the accidents start happening and massive judgements follow will the executives awake from their deep slumber in Green Bay.

Common sense would have told the airhead cheesehead execs that a website needed to be created whereby the drivers could use and edit the safe driver entered truck route directions but that would have cost money which goes against Schitter's new creed of PROFITS FIRST AND SAFETY SECOND.

The Facts Have Been Ignored

AUTHOR: Lady Truck - ()

 I worked for Schneider when they discontinued the company directions database.  The company clearly told me (and so did the GPS on the Qualcomm) that you should not rely solely on the GPS directions provided.  There are pictures at all of the OC's on monitors that show drivers what happens when they rely solely on a GPS- things such as trailers stuck under low clearance bridges, trucks on tree-lined dirt paths in the mountains, and a truck stuck in the sand on the water line of a beach.  Trip plans should involve checking the Rand McNally Atlas (that the company provides for their drivers free of charge), calling the customer to get accurate directions, checking all of the notes on the qualcomm regarding delivery/pickup instructions, calling your DBL if you still cannot get clear directions (mine always helped me out when I needed clear directions), and THEN consulting the GPS to see if it matches your research!  The GPS is just a tool, but it should NEVER be relied upon solely.  The company is very clear about that.  And yes, you will encounter things like tree limbs, detours, narrow winding roads, and leaning poles in the curb lane (just to name a few things) when you drive a truck-  That is why you are trained to be ready to make sound judgements quickly, and why you are taught about things such as clearance on all 6 sides of your truck.  That is truck driving, and if you fail to expect to encounter such things in your daily work as a driver, then you are sadly misinformed.  When in doubt, STOP and ASSESS the situation.  Do NOT rely on the GPS.  Do your homework first and always be on the lookout for hazards on your route.  *$#@ happens!  Be ready for it!

#2 UPDATE Employee

another lieing OSR fibbing about Schitter National

AUTHOR: The evil dwarf - (U.S.A.)

Schitter pays good?   ROFL!!!   95% of company drivers make less then $25,000 a year driving for this scumbag outfit and I say go upto any orange company truck and ask the driver how much he's making he'll tell u he's making less then half what the average middle class person makes which is $54,000 a year.   This is easily verified JUST ASK ANY DRIVER  LOL.   I feel sorry for Schitter employees they are being dumped on and crapped all over by 1%'ers who make millions managing this joke outfit and by the owners who rake in billions.  Schitter is the Walmart of the trucking industry.  Of course the got a handful of drivers who get all the gravy runs these are the ones whom they trot out whenever they need to 'prove' that everything is peachy here.   U gotta be an OSR whom they got dressed up as Nazi SA Brownshirts who hasn't had the unfortunate experience to use that totally fouled up by the directions dept GPS which tells me on every single trip to turn the wrong way at least once i had to spend $300 to get a real trucker GPS as that thing Schitter put in the truck is a joke and its going to get someone killed before it's done.

As for using the Rand McNally Atlas Schitter told me to use a piece of string to route myself to my destinations and even a dumb rookie knows that it don't show city streets all it does is show interstate exits.   Why u feel the need to lie not quite sure but if you are an OSR you've let yourself be brainwashed by Schitter National and when you retire with no pension and no medical benefits you'll realize then that you are a complete fool.

#3 UPDATE Employee

Inaccurate information about the company

AUTHOR: Grdach - (United States of America)

How are you doing today?

I have been with Schneider National for 3 years. In orientation as well as training, they have a whole DAY dedicated to understanding how to properly trip plan. The company even has a test that can literally make or break you based off of trip planning. In no way have they ever told me not to trip plan. What do you think this is? They even provide you with a Rand McNally Atlas free of cost. Out of 3 years of driving, the Qualcomm GPS has only misrouted me into a bad position one time. I don't get your validity as I see absolutely nothing in common with the company from what you are presenting.

Schneider's pay isn't the best in the world, I do have to say that. It's not bad, it's just mediocre. I have been with a bad company, and Schneider is very straight forward in their intent and constantly stress safety. You can ask any pumpkin truck at a truck stop and see if he/she agrees with what i'm saying. It's true, it sounds like you didn't do your end of the bargain and got canned. You have to actually work for this company, and there's a LOT of freight to be moved!

Dumb rookies being told they must follow screwed up GPS by air head DBL's

AUTHOR: The evil dwarf - (U.S.A.)

I have been talking to rookie drivers and they are telling me their air head DBL's are telling them they have to follow the totally fouled up GPS,  and it's only a matter of time that one of them is forced to drive next to a playground or through a residential neighborhood and someone gets seriously injured or killed due to this extremely dangerous GPS.   The Corporate Greed Hog Airhead Cheese Heads running this outfit don't give a damn either as they'll try their best to blame the driver as they do in this funny farm 100% of the time.

Any lawyer looking into an accident should check to see if the driver was forced to follow a dangerous route when ordered to do so by ding-a-ling management so the blame can be shifted to Schitter National where it belongs.  Common sense dictates that the safe driver entered truck routes be put on the internet where they can be accessed and edited but the morons running this outfit are too f*cking dumb to do that cause after all that would cost money and would go against Schitter's new creed of PROFITS FIRST & SAFETY SECOND.

I see Schneider is still at it.

AUTHOR: Sad Trucker - (United States of America)

Lol, it has been 5 years since I pulled myself out of the slums of Schneider and I see they are still at it. 

Saving money, and bringing headaches to the drivers. When I was there, they made the truck stops stop giving the 3 or 4 cent per gallon incentive that truck stops used to give, to drivers. Instead they decided that the discount should go to them. 

Seriously, I hope they are out of business one day. They cost me my truck. Any new drivers that are considering Schneider, DON'T.

#7 General Comment

Allow me to explain how stupid this is.

AUTHOR: Bubba Lee - (Canada)

The Trucking company (In the complaint Schnieder) has provided a GPS system for the drivers.

The Company has defined the mileages for what they charge and pay by this system.

The employees will feel that they are required follow that routing because that is what they are paid for.

I guarantee at least one dispatcher will loose his temper at a complaining driver and tell him: "If you don't follow the route provided and get in a crash YOU WILL BE FIRED" I am paraphrasing of corse, there is no use predicting what swear words he would use.

Even if the above is not said many drivers will assume it is the intent of the company to do this.

Truck drivers have brain fade moments every day, just like every one else, and when faced by an over pass that is just slightly low or worse yet is a dyslexic nightmare of having all the correct numbers but in the wrong order, now you have a mess. The driver will be at fault.

And finally when a seriously overwhelming accident happens and there is a proper investigation by someone like the NTSB it will all get traced back to this one stupid act by management removing the safe route information from the drivers use.

Then we will wonder how the company could be so stupid.

So Then...

AUTHOR: Jim - (USA)

If as a driver, no, a safe driver, you start to follow the directions they want you to take, and you see low hanging tree limbs, do you just continue to proceed just because the directions tell you to?  If those directions tell you to go under a 12'-6" overpass, do you try that and when the safety department asks, your excuse is the "the directions told me so"?
