No opinion of CEO

I worked at Werner Enterprises full-time (More than a year)

Pros

pay was not too bad, plus the home on weekends not bad either

Cons

supposed to have off weekends but never knowing when your weekend was going to begin or end, being forced to use personal drive time to make deliverys on time, getting sick and having a doctors note saying that you MAY NOT drive, yet being told that you HAVE to come out and drive or your truck will be towed and an abandonment added to your record, dispatchers treat drivers like dirt, all you are to this company is a piece of equiptment that is assigned a number.

    Pros

    Werner gave me the opportunity to run dedicated and then they also give you the opportunity to work light duty if the situation arises.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Knowledge of a job well done could be shown from dispatch to drivers a little more frequently.

    Pros

    They have many divisions to choose from.

    Cons

    Werner doesn't pay very well at all. And there are no pay increases! Don't count on a mileage bonus, they work hard to ensure that you don't get the miles. They apparently have no communication with their trainers and recruiters even though they have qualcoms in all the trucks. They flat out lie to you. There is NO $500 bonus for staying on the truck while you are training and there is no such thing as Paid Time Off (PTO)!
