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

    Pros

    Other co-workers and the immediate manager were great, patient, friendly, and helpful. People in other departments seemed very friendly as well. I was never left hanging with an unanswered question. I really didn't want to leave but I was offered nearly double the salary and couldn't pass it up.

    Cons

    The pay anywhere at Werner is a joke. If you're in a department that isn't actively generating revenue, you are definitely on the back burner. The office itself sucks, the equipment sucks, the systems suck, and the pay sucks. All of this wears on employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to squeeze blood out of turnips. You'll be much more profitable long-term if you pay and treat your employees well - office staff and drivers alike. Even doing this immediately would not put the company anywhere near the red. Or you can just continue on your current course - high turnover and wasting all that money on training and recruiting while the company image is more tarnished by the day. Even the employees that can handle all of the problems still don't like seeing their fellow co-workers have to deal with those problems.

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

    Pros

    Easy place to get along as long as you’re willing to work hard and do whatever is asked of you even if it doesn’t entail getting the miles you want. Being available for the crap jobs is often rewarded with good miles!

    Cons

    Mileage pay could have been better

    Advice to Management

    Pay more and you’ll keep more of the quality drivers

    Great leadership, Many different positions available across the nation, rewarding accounts to work on, great experience builder

    401K and insurance needs to be more competitive.

    I worked at Werner Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Works with schedule like school or doctor appointments

    Take into consideration pay increases based off of training and communication with goal items.

    Pros

    The pay isn't competitive, but it will likely get you by. Probably a good place to get your foot in the door.

    Cons

    Drivers are the supreme leaders regardless of how obnoxious or clearly incorrect they are. Everything in the shop is always filthy, everything is always broken, and they never have parts. Annual raises? Pffft, hardly even worth the effort of filling out the paperwork to get it (which you have to do anyway).

    Pros

    The pay isn’t terrible depending on what your goals are. I love my coworkers too, just be careful who you tell certain things to because there are snowflakes that work here.

    Cons

    The 1.5% company matching on the 401K is a joke.
    Dealing with drivers can be stressful at times, I choose to go with a firm approach when it comes to dealing with drivers.
    Depending on what customer accounts you get it can either be an easy paycheck or you’ll be hating life.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees better, bump up the company matching on the 401K.

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

    Pros

    I started at Werner as a student. I learned more about trucks as a student than I did in school. The pay day advances help me tremendously when I needed them. I am grateful to the 3 trainers I had, they made sure I knew everything I would need to be on my own. As a n ambitious person it is a grate company to grow with. I feel the support from most everyone I came in contact with was helpful and supportive.

    Cons

    Really strict on fellows I loved this company and gave it my all and no one there could find a way to hire my fiance that happens to be a felon, his conviction being over 10 yrs old and still not being hired is the only reason I had to leave. We went to truck driving school to drive together, I found Werner and worked there 8 months and loving every minute of it. However my personal life was falling apart because he could not take being away from me more than 2wks . We are now at another company that sucks only because they hired him.

    Advice to Management

    Have a heart and review the felon thing.
