    I worked at Werner Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    Dispatch was pretty cool and the pay was cool. I was on a regional dollar tree account which was extremely hard but rewarding

    Cons

    With certain accounts you shouldn't ride alone and I wasn't properly trained on the account thanks to afternoon dispatch

    I have been working at Werner Enterprises full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They Never pressure you to run when it’s not safe or illegal. They have Newer trucks. They have lots of different driving accounts to accommodate what you need most.

    Cons

    Pay is below average. Breakdown repairs take way to long to be setup and approved.

    Advice to Management

    Pay experienced drivers more.

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

    Pros

    They have a decent training program.

    Cons

    I worked on two separate accounts while at Werner. I have nothing bad to say about the Family Dollar account except it was hard work. the dispatchers and safety were wonderful.

    the second account was the Wal-Mart account out of Olney, Il. I had problems from the start. All the dispatchers are incompitant. If you like waiting 6-8 hours for a loan after your 10 then this is the place for you. if you like getting only 900-1500 miles a week then this job is for you.

    Pros

    Werner Equipment is fantastic in my opinion.
    They do pay for some things that Swift, CR England and some other companies don’t.
    I operate on the TCU account and go to the very same places A LOT!
    Consistent miles here.
    I am lucky. I have Jennifer Mauseth as a Fleet Manager! Fantastic and I highly recommend if you do work here.
    That is it for the positives that actually matter.

    Cons

    Absolutely positively do not by any means accept a “Male Fleet Manager” at Werner Enterprises. They all have something to prove and could care less about you or anything regarding your existence. I mean literally if you want a horrendous experience speak to any male fleet manager at Werner. You will quit the job momentarily after! Very Very Bad Dispatchers.
    Call on a weekend and it’s literally like talking to a brick wall of answers like (Welp, gotta wait till your fleet manager comes back). Extremely useless staff. Being that a lot of these guys have been at the desk since the dinosaurs they are treated like royalty and the drivers are more like work mules.

    Advice to Management

    1. Do a better job!
    2. When you receive calls don’t sound ready to do absolutely anything else.
    3. Don’t send drivers to places that are closed.
    4. Don’t call on the phone to avoid being recorded on the Qualcomm when you want to try and REALLY get a driver to finish driving the full shift.
    5. Pay your drivers a comparable wage to a third of the industry and see how much more work you get out of them.
    6. Stop letting people who have never driven a truck create rules! The End.
