Pros

Training is where you will find the money at Werner because you get paid for every mile your student drives in addition to your own driving. So basically you are receiving the pay of a team all for yourself while Werner pays your student a separate small weekly salary.

Cons

If you just want to run single I would suggest looking elsewhere. Almost anyone else will offer you better pay and miles because Werner favors their training teams over everyone else. Benefits are comparable to everyone else.

Advice to Management

Please improve the response times of the driver support staff, especially over the weekend. Your drivers are out there 24/7. It gets old hearing about "short staffing" all the time.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Easy to get hired
    Initial transportation to terminal paid
    Friendly at hiring terminals
    Assigned to trucks immediately
    receiving first dispatch quickly

    Cons

    2 different company physicians have 2 different physical criterias.
    Weekend dispatchers not fully trained in emergencies or breakdowns
    unrealistic timeline for seeking personal physician re-evaluations and tests
    Dispatchers do not care about work/home balances

    Advice to Management

    If a company physician deems it necessary to question driver abilities and ask for additional private physician testing, then do it where the driver is! Don't send them back to home state and then only give 30 days to get appointment, get tested, get results, and THEN try to get results to Werner. Please remember some physicians are booked 2 months in advance and cannot/will not take walk-ins, even if it means that persons job.
