Schneider National Hauls Jobs To Gary
September 23, 2013 – In a continued quest to bring more employment opportunities to its residents, the City of Gary has joined forces with Schneider National, one of the nations largest truckload carriers. As part of the city’s “New Day, New Jobs Initiative,” Schneider is hosting three jobs fairs before the end of the year at the WorkOne office in Gary. One of the fairs was held October 17th. There are still two more to go, one being held November 14th and the other on December 12th.
Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson says the city’s efforts to reduce unemployment are ongoing. She says when people are gainfully employed, it has a direct impact on a city’s economic growth, a reduction in crime and overall quality of life. Schneider is looking primarily to hire truck drivers and mechanics in the Gary area.
Schneider National Vice President Rob Reich says the company’s great need is for experienced over-the-road and tanker truck drivers who have just graduated from truck driving school. Reich says these are good paying jobs that come with benefits. Currently the company is offering a $5,000 sign-on bonus for over the road drivers. There are a lot of good reasons Gary residents will want to learn more about what a company like Schneider has of offer.
