I have been working at Werner Enterprises as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

You have so many departments at one place so get to meet everyone and can share experiences.
Have many social events too.

Cons

This is just the current situation (July-2012) There are lot of constructions going on which is kind of noisy inside and outside.

Advice to Management

You guys are doing a great job. Keep it up.

    I have been working at Werner Enterprises full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A couple of the dispachers are not to bad.

    Cons

    They dont even try to get you home when you ask. You may have to file withg the labor board to recieve your reimbursements like I am doing. They take advantage of the regional drivers by sending them out of thier region but not paying the higher 48 state wages. Getting in and out of the terminals is a pain, every one of them is set up and run differently. The night and weekend crews for dispatch and so called "trip planners" must be people they round up at homeless and drug rehab shelters and have no buisiness even working there, there is one or two exceptions on that. For a company of its size it is the most mickey mouse unorganized place I have ever worked at. And to top it off they have the lowest starting pay of almost any other trucking company.

    Advice to Management

    WAKE UP! The drivers are what keep your buisiness alive, better pay and some decent night and weekend crew would make a world of difference.

    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.
