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

    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

    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Werner Ent. will provide you whatever truck that you pretty much choose. With very low miles. Once you've completed training. Which will increase your confidence.

    Cons

    Your first year they take full advantage of you. They will run, run, run you down.

    Advice to Management

    Dollar tree account. $70 per trailer unloaded is a joke! Camping World account, $11.50 an hour, and ¢.09 per mile is laughable. Fifty cents an hour over minimum is sad. More funds need to be paid to drivers!

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

    Pros

    As a day driver it was nice being home everyday, and the work/loads were fairly consistent.

    Cons

    There are other companies with better pay, equipment, and management. Pay was decent - 0.29/mile for OTR, 0.35/mile for Net Ops/day driver, and 0.42/mile for dedicated account, but there are better wages with other companies. It also took a long time to get into a fleet I was ok with. There were a high number of bad trailers and my assigned truck needed repairs often. Management seems to be unhappy with their jobs and could be difficult to work with. I shared a truck with a driver who smoked and management did nothing when I asked to be assigned a different truck. I'd have to switch to a different time slot from what I'd worked long time to get into. I worked 6 months on a 1am-1pm before I could get into a 8am-8pm time slot.

    I worked at Werner Enterprises full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great running vehicles, consistent miles with pretty good pay. Very good at responding to drivers with truck issues. Will bend over backwards to ensure their drivers are safe. Allows pets at a cost.

    Cons

    Pet fee is kind of high plus they take 5$/week too have pet on truck. Overall spent almost 3 years with the company and that's about the only con I could come up with.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Maybe offer more local job on the east coast..

    I worked at Werner Enterprises full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Werner is a dynamic company where people with a passion for what they do can excel. There are oftentimes many opportunities to directly impact the direction of the company and many people in positions of leadership, are willing to listen and take recommendations from people who are out in the field, making things happen.

    The Senior Leadership really cares for the Drivers and for the Employees. The company has always kept an eye out for the overall health of the company but the well being of the employees as well.

    It is a great company to work for in many regards. The pros definitely outweighed the negatives, but the few negatives there were, are so outrageous, they may cost the company a large number of quality employees if things aren't changed.

    Cons

    Middle Management/Lower Managers have zero integrity. They are liars. They will lie to the employees and then lie to Senior Management to protect their jobs. There are a few Managers that put their Directors & Vice Presidents in unfortunate situations where decisions have to be made that are detrimental to the employees. There are instances of Managers boasting to their employees that they are "untouchable" because it will be their word against the employees. Unfortunately, that is true. It's a tragedy that good employees have their names besmirched by Managers that have a track record of employees leaving the company, based solely on that Managers behaviors. Until Werner addresses this issue, there will be many outstanding, award winning & recognized employees leaving the company to pursue other interests. It's unfair to Werner because it paints an outstanding company as not having the willingness to verify and authenticate the behavior of people they have entrusted to lead others.

    Advice to Management

    Review the records of Mid-Level Directors & Supervisors. Review complaints about certain managers. Look at the employment records of former employees, especially ones that have suddenly resigned recently. Compare the history of complaints against these Managers and take note of any patterns of behavior or common complaints. Recognize that a great company has Managers & Directors that are willing to lie and vilify others in order to protect their jobs. Find those that feel they are untouchable and remove them. The company is worth much more than the damage a person with zero integrity will ever have.
