PHOENIX -- A Wisconsin-based trucking company is about to bring hundreds of jobs to Phoenix.

Schneider National will open a western regional facility in September near 41st Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road and plans to hire 200 drivers.

Vice president Michael Hinz said many of the jobs pay $50,000 a year. "If you're a lightly experienced driver, and you're new to the industry, you're going to be working your way up to that," he said. "If you're an experienced driver, something in the lower 50s is very attainable. We have drivers that live in Phoenix now who are already doing that."

The jobs offer full benefits and a $5,000 signing bonus. Lease opportunities with Schneider are also available to owner-operators throughout Arizona.

In most cases, you'll be driving 500 miles or less. "There certainly are some over-the-road jobs and some team jobs that are also available in that market," Hinz said. "We'll have a good selection based on what that individual wants to do."

The company is accepting applications.
