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

    Pros

    Great benefits, plenty of terminals and good equipment at least the trucks.

    Cons

    Trailers are hit and miss on condition, miles are average and it's general commodity frieght at least in dry vans.

    Advice to Management

    For a large company you do a good job...maybe driver retention could be worked on, but with the lifestyle of OTR , that is a hard nut to crack.

    The company has a great schedule where you can work 7 days on then 7 days off. Many people like that

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

    Pros

    Plenty of terminals with showers. Decent training

    Cons

    I was blamed for accident that i did not commit. Had to go back to location of accident and have the person who reported the accident inform Werner it was another driver. Werner did not take the time to investigate the accident property, they assumed it was me because i dropped a load off the same day. After 4 months.

    Advice to Management

    None, they are doing the job that is ask by the company senior team. If you have a problem with management then become a manager. As a driver get the experience and move on.

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

    Pros

    They will take just about anyone with a pulse and a fairly clean CDL. Decent training in the beginning.

    Cons

    Werner is for a select individual. If you like a 'gentlemen's club' culture and getting yelled at on a regular basis by your direct manager, then this is the place for you!

    Advice to Management

    TRY to care about your employees more than how stuffed your pockets are. That includes drivers as well.
