I am a victim of Schneider National, and due to its different entities in deferent states, I cannot find an tourney to help my resolve. I went through the academy and had a trainer scream at me while white knuckled in a 53 foot trailer on public streets, loaded, and finished in two weeks feeling the sores of boot camp as they are strictly military likeness. Then out with a trainer for week, then I was on my own. The first city I went to was Chicago, where I backed more mile than forward.
Maps don't do real time or street level, so I thought I had died and went to hell in a truck. No air conditioner, and living in a box was new as well . after a few trips to phoenix as, having to try to sleep in 125 plus, I really needed a break and 17 cents a mile, loosing my family for being gone 3 to 4 weeks, and not making but 250 one week, the week back out after being home for two days, then climbing back up to gross of 635 after being out for three weeks and hold back on check for limpers which 150.00 comes out of my check.
Toll booths, or fuel that was not at a pilot, came out of my pay and it took some cases 30 days to recouped. after I had lost my car due to reposition, lost my home, it was now six months and was terrified by having to stay with them 12 months to pay back a loan for training if I quit one day early. Still, it is July and they decided there was a mechanic that they just replaced some poor guy who of hundreds they go through had the qualifications to fix bad o ring. I WAS OFF 17.5 cents and I was feeling stress was now certainly compromising my safety to others on road. I had a job offer making really good money, so I gave notice and was threatened to sue if I did not complete 12 months.
Needles to say I could not even afford groceries. I started and within three week, Partners, another Schneider entity, started calling wanting 130.00 a week for 26 weeks which I was in so much debt. here is the really big scare after they harassed me for three years, they threatened to come after my assets, I agreed to go back to work for them which I had 8 months prior, I would work 4 months and pay them off of bill by now, 6,800.00 had to go through 5 day training program again, and had to log it, and was not compensated, so 70 hours was almost up and Monday I would have to take a restart in a truck parking lot.
after 6 months I called every person with a phone in Schneider to get something in writing that I had paid debt off and remove it from my credit and Schneider refused. Mr. trucker, you will have to believe us, we don't give writing. I gave thirty day notice, and they paid me 50 dollars he next week for being out 4 weeks and over 4 thousand miles. the next week they paid me 150 dollars and claimed it was due to loads not being turned in. I got hurt and reported it and they wanted me to shut the truck down till I could have it checked to see if I was safe to drive. I pulled muscle in finger, big deal. I was further harassed as to being charged with a accident because I had to have a tow truck to move me two feet in flood back 3 months ago, in other words they were going to fire me, to ruin my work record, then told me I could not leave for I needed to work 18 months instead of 12, mar truck driver, there is 52 weeks in a year, that means you must log hrs driven equal to time of 52 weeks.
They are now suing me for 6,800 again, put on my deck multiple accidents, have ruined my credit, and is harassing my mail box and micelle phone please can some body help me.
