    Awesome experience

    Java Developer II (Current Employee) Omaha, NE

    ProsManagement loves their position. Full of enthusiasm. It's been a pleasure to work for them and am very happy to have got to know them.

    I have been treated very well. They fully understood the learning curves of an employee new to their career, company and industry. They had been very patient with me as I grew into the position and literally would pull me to the side to find out how I am doing and repeatedly told me to come to them for any needs.

    My confidence is sky high because of their outreach and management style. So much so that I have never before believed such a great work environment exists. Still having a hard time forthcoming it today. I am driven to want to work extra for these guys even though it is not expected of me.

    I literally just gave a much lowers opinion in a review just now for a previous company which stands in deep contrast to my opinion of Werner. No incentive to post this other than to give credit where it is due.

    They are very flexible too.

    ConsMy pay was decent for my experience level. Still far below what other Werner developers have been making. So to be fair, I was compensated my fair market value.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThanks for the great experience. Thanks for everything!

    ProsWerner is a strong, debt free company with many career paths and a promote from within environment. They have afforded me with the ability to spend the time that I need with my family, I can't remember ever missing an important family event? As life has dealt me it's rough times, illnesses and many personal challenges, Werner has always been there for me with support and understanding.

    ConsI can't think of many cons, the pay and benefits and time off are very good. They also have a relaxed work environments and an outstanding wellness program. I really like the work hard, play hard, family oriented culture.

    OTR Dedicated Driver (Former Employee) Rome, NY

    ProsFor the most part they have decent equipment and maintained well enough They have a lot of benefits which can be accessed on line. They have a very knowledgeable staff that a driver has access to 24hrs a day. They have an excellent training program.

    My internship was great! I loved the people I worked with and got to do some pretty amazing stuff!

    Intern (Former Employee) Omaha, NE

    ProsThey were super flexible with me even though I was an intern and even provided me with housing! They were very interested in developing me as a person as opposed to just having me do the extra work that they needed to get done. They have a great campus.

    ConsThere is tension in some departments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore feedback on performance might be nice.

    Werner is an excellent company for the new driver as well as the more qualified drivers.

    Truck Driver (Current Employee) Denver, CO

    ConsHome time is sometimes not a on time but close and they could offer a little more per mile.
