I worked at Werner Enterprises

Pros

Good training process if you get lucky with the first trainer or run through a million different ones until you find the right one. Dispatch not strict about a driver's decision to change a given route. Dispatch may not give you good answers to questions, but at least they answer the d*** phone. Friendly people at the terminals unless you go into the mechanics garage.

Cons

Extreme misinformation between recruiter and potential employee as far as pay for Family Dollar. Student driver managers virtually have no purpose in the area of getting anything useful done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of that Family Dollar NONSENSE and get people miles so they can bring some real money home on the weekend. Don't fill peoples ear with junk just to get them to drive for your company. Thats why your turnover rate is sky high.

    Pros

    Smart colleagues, Easy atmosphere, friendly people, Excellent top management, Easy to get things done if you know people, very supportive HR.

    Cons

    Poor middle management, Clueless how to handle employees and they hide stuff from the top management. They work for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please fire the middle management. They are brining the company down. It is not far before the company is going to flush out like a toilet if the middle management stays.
