Harley-Davidson contract creates 75 trucking jobs
Milwaukee-based motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson Inc., which has operations in York County, is getting a little help from one of its friends in Wisconsin.
Schneider National Inc., based in Green Bay, announced Monday it has created 75 jobs for truck drivers who will haul engines and other parts for Harley-Davidson.
One of the largest carriers in North America, Schneider is hiring for jobs that pay up to $80,000 per year. Its drivers will haul Harley-Davidson materials from Missouri, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania to points around the country.
Schneider is hiring in Kansas City, Mo.; Menomonee Falls, Wis.; and York. The company is offering sign-on bonuses of $7,000 for teams and $3,500 for solo drivers.
“Our team drivers can expect to average 5,000 to 6,000 miles per week, which can equate to $80,000 per year,” said Rob Reich, Schneider’s vice president. “Those who drive solo will run about 2,800 miles a week and earn up to $66,000 a year.”
