    Pros

    I prefer solo driving, and Werner provided it.

    Cons

    Sometimes driving through states with snowy conditions, and Werner doesn;t allow chaining up.

    Advice to Management

    Be required to chain up in these congitions, which prevent weather-related accidents!!

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent with truck integrity, my FM works hard to keep me happy. Leniency on where, and if I choose to fuel. Payroll department is proactive.

    Cons

    If you drop your empty after to 1400hr payroll deadline, on Teusdays, that trip won't show until the following week, even if you submitted the trip paks long before the deadline. Otherwise, nothing.

    Advice to Management

    No complaints

    Pros

    I have an awesome dispatcher who try’s to keep me safe and always works out a plan for success. My dispatcher keeps me running 3000-3500 miles a week. The benefits are awesome and they never make you run in really bad weather. They stay on top of maintenance and fix without a lot of fuss whenever needed.

    Cons

    Not always happy with the load planners. Hate having back to back live loads or food grade trailer drops. Don’t like getting stuck on the east coast doing lots of little hops and don’t like doing lots of little hops that begin as live load and end with live unload. It kills the clock.

    Advice to Management

    Try to space out short and long loads. Drivers Hate doing lots of short little runs and we long haulers hate getting stuck on the east coast all the time. We signed up to do 48 state to get to go coast to coast. Also give the trainers more headway. The student is not the beat all end all. They are there to learn not dictate.

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

    Pros

    The café and gym were always available and came in handy while working late nights.

    Cons

    Not adaptive to change at all. I felt like "the help" while working there. Major lack of diversity and employee resource groups.

    Advice to Management

    Create a Diversity & Inclusion Manager and get it filled right away.

    Pros

    great volume of business, small team atmosphere, very well managed from a distance

    Cons

    Tenured employees tend to take advantage of the "self managed" office culture,

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your comfort levels, you sit in a great chair and your employees do as well. Empower them and train your branch managers further in employee cultivation. You'd see tenfold the results

    I worked at Werner Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    The pay was good for someone fresh out of college

    Cons

    The benefits were mediocre, they don’t have sick days, and you only get 2 days PTO every 3 months. They also expect you to work more that 50 hours a week. That includes weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of focusing on driver retention think about the people that actually have to manage them
