    I have been working at Werner Enterprises (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benifits weren't bad, but it seems with any driving company it will all depend on your fleet manager. If you have one that cares about you, the experience is great, if not ...

    Cons

    Depends on the fleet manager. ONLY COMMUNICATE VIA QUAILCOM. At least then there is a record of them telling you to do things you know are out of regs.

    Advice to Management

    communicate with the drivers on if their fleet manager is bullying them to do things that are out of regulations..

    I worked at Werner Enterprises (Less than a year)

    Pros

    New Equipment from the start. No waiting for seniority like a lot of other companies.

    Cons

    Don't care about the overall well being of their drivers once you're out on the road. Nor do they try helping you when emergencies or injuries happen.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul your way of dealing with your drivers on all aspects!

    I worked at Werner Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    This company has a lot of amenities such as a hair salon, video arcade, company store, showers, and two gyms. I would have to say my favorite part of working at Werner was being to call the cafeteria ladies from my desk and order lunch! The food is really good!

    Cons

    This company does have opportunity to advance, but will chew you up and spit you out just as easily. The also do not have very good pay for the amount of work you are required to do.

    Advice to Management

    As a manager there you have to remember you are working in a trucking business environment. This is not a glamorous place to work.
