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

    Pros

    This must be a joke!

    Cons

    Don't get injured on the job with this lousy company. They will make sure they don't pay your medical bills and deny your workers comp claim. They are under no obligation to send you a copy of your denial in writing. This is a Totalitatrian regime, very dictatorial! You seriously injure your back, and they ask you to wait until you get approval to see a doctor for medical care. Once you injure your back, they still expect you that day to deliver a load. That's an insult to injury!!!! What part of injury do these guys have trouble comprehending???? Perhaps Werner is waiting for you to die before they take any immediate action to process your workers comp claim and pay it. This company has a complete disregard to assume responsiblity and pay for their injured employee's medical treatment. Get a decent employer that knows how to take care of its employees when they are injured on the job. Otherwise, you will live in hell not having access to medical care because of a greedy company such as Werner refuses to take care of its employees when they are truly injured on the job. Thanks a lot Werner, you suck as an employer! Working for Werner is like signing a deal with the devil! Werner, I hope you find more idiots to take advantage of!

    Advice to Management

    Be a responsible employer and make sure you treat employees with dignity and respect. If an employee gets injured on the job, don't automatically deny their claim because you are so cheapskate to even take care of your injured employees!

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

    Pros

    Very quick hiring process, hotel is paid for if your in orientation and waiting for a trainer, nice equipment

    Cons

    Hiring massive amounts of drivers without enough trainers, when your training your only getting paid $400 a week no matter what your trainer is making because you make on time deliveries, drive thousands of miles or save gas, wont always pair you with a trainer that is running the same route you signed up for, e.g. I was signed up for a western dedicated family dollar, i was put on a OTR which wasnt really OTR cause we drove straight from Arizona to the east coast and spent three weeks stuck there driving in the snow during christmas and new years, DISPATCHERS! they are horrible managers, when your about to make a delivery and you tell them three to four hours in advance that your ready for another load after delivery why would they not have a planned pickup ready and waiting, no just sit there and waste the rest of your hours. When they call you in for a new truck while training, be careful, they pulled my trainer aside and suspended him from training for some DOT trailer ticket that he had gotten months ago, then expected me to just go with it and waste more time in a hotel waiting for a new trainer after we just spent three days in the hotel two days before for mechanical repairs. No thanks I have better things to do with my time

    Advice to Management

    Treat your current employees who are training your future employees with a little bit more respect and obviously keep them busy with loads
