Trucking Company Partners with Army Reserve


The Army Reserve and Schneider National has initiated a partnership which allows both organizations, working together, to recruit, train, and employ those interested, to be able to serve their country and pursue a career in the transportation/logistics industry.

Working together, Schneider National and The Army Reserve will recruit and train qualified soldier candidates. Those interested, must successfully complete their military occupational training ( MOS). Upon Completion of their MOS training with The Army Reserve, Schneider National guarantees job interviews for all qulified soldiers.

This program is not new to The Army Reserve and Schneider National. Since the inception in April, there have been many other business programs which have been recruited into this partnership. There are also hundreds of other businesses finalizing this partnership with the Army Reserve.

Benefits to the program are tri-fold.  It provides soldiers with career oportunities in a variety of fields. It strengthens the Army Reserve, and finally it allows businesses to fill job vacancies with qualifed well diciplined employees.  Many times in the past, soldiers would arrive home after serving their country in sacrifice and honor, only to discover that their skills in the civilian work force were limited, or worse yet, non existant. This program appears to alleviate that for our most honorable of citizens.
