    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!

    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.

    Pros

    The trucks are some of the best in the business and they have an outstanding maintanence department. Trucks get serviced regularly.

    Cons

    Awful downtimes and deadhead pay. Also, the training pay for rookie drivers is low and it takes the recruiting department awhile to find you a trainer.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay for rookies and better route management from the load planners wouldn't hurt. Also, there should be better dispatchers driver communication throughout the company.

    Pros

    Multiple job locations Large Staple Company with Good Starting pay and lots of assets

    Cons

    Trying to get anything done on the fly is like pulling teeth sometimes. Knowing who to contact for what is too difficult without having to send the information to large dept. No sick pay. Vacation pay and sick pay are the same pool. Would like to see better insurance package and investment package.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you hear out your employees and make them feel they can come to you with issues and concerns. Conduct more informative meetings. Watch what the employees are doing.
