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

    Pros

    Miles and training are good they will get you the experience you need. Pay could be better I average about $600/week as a solo otr driver. Also, they honestly to try to get you home on time it just doesn't work out sometimes

    Cons

    They try to get you home EXACTLY in your day you request. So if your in your home area the day before your requested day expect to work doing shags or sitting at a shipper all day to get loaded just to drive and split the load at the terminal. Also, the pay could be a lot better.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the drivers requests and don't advertise that you have local work available when you do not have any local work anywhere in the nation and what local positions you do have available have a 25 person waiting listi

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

    Pros

    My first trainer was the most disgusting, filthiest person I have ever met. My second trainer was great. I honestly have nothing good to say.

    Cons

    Constantly dealing with payroll. You are sent to drop yards to pick up trailers that are not there. I have even been sent to a paper company that was out of paper. Bring plenty of books because you will be doing a lot of sitting around. especially now that the holiday rush is over.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your drivers please. They know what is going on. Do not let your fleet assigners run the show. They have favorites and it is obvious. Step it up a little. It seems if you have a GED and CDL, and you can spell both of them, than you can get hired at Werner, what a bunch of retards working here.
