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

    Pros

    There’s plenty of work, pay is good, down time adequate lots of potential...

    Cons

    Management is lacking professional attention, supervision is isolated and self preserved, equipment not reliable and property and equipment management fails in careful and organized appropriation.

    Advice to Management

    Work more towards better training, maintaining and properly supporting and advocating for subordinates and stabilizing a consistent and steady team for the various accounts. When safety matters arise raise awareness and call for coaching and training as opposed to escalating and damaging the reputation of loyal and potentially worthy employees.
