    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Werner Enterprises full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The position wasn't for me (and the company has limited roles in particular branches), but overall I highly recommend the company. Pay and benefits were pretty good, plenty of available resources (access to technology and learning opportunities), supportive staff, pretty organized, lots of growth opportunities and even lateral mobility throughout different departments, the "Midwest nice" mentality shines through, they care about employees (even the drivers) and will make an effort to recognize efficiency and other wins for the team. They'll listen to new ideas... management team was sharp, loyal, and willing to help you move your career forward. They try!

    Cons

    There were certain expectations that weren't my favorite (sudden increase of number of hours worked, for example). They were also going through a company culture change to make it a more fun and competitive place to work, which was cute but also annoying for people who just generally want to do a good job/excel (take a more modest approach) without having to shout off rooftops about landing a new customer (it's just not everyone's style). Also had some challenges with micro-managing supervisors at one point and should have probably brought that to the management's attention because it negatively impacted the team's performance.

    I worked at Werner Enterprises full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    nothing to say at all for this

    Cons

    New manager forged and manipulated DOT physicals for drivers. Upper management let this manager go well beyond qualification timing to fulfill the requirements. Upper management made it so my life/career was in great jeopardy after the file was sent to home office to show hard evidence of the allegations.

    I worked at Werner Enterprises full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Get home on time, newer equipment, nice terminals

    Cons

    Terrible coordination between departments (planners, CSMs, fleet managers, drivers, etc.) was frequent. Loads being rescheduled for pickups and deliveries happens in trucking, but those need to be communicated to the drivers instead of allowing them to be blindsided upon arrival. The workload on the fleet managers and coordinators is horrific. They often were overworked to the point of time sensitive communications taking hours to be conveyed to drivers or failing to be communicated to drivers at all. There was also an abhorrent lack of communication from management to drivers regarding expectations and driver performance. Time not spent driving due to illness, breakdown, or weather delay is not taken into acccount when figuring the miles a driver is expected to drive. When being fired for something that was never addressed in prior communications of expected performance, there is no support from HR with any information and the truck will not be allowed to idle for any reason including to provide air conditioning on a hot day while removing personal belongings prior to going home.

    Pros

    Co workers are friendly and don't stab you in the back. Work life balance is phenomenal. Laid back environment.

    Cons

    It's difficult to get anything done. Hampered by unreasonable processes and lack of vertical as well as horizontal communication. Tech stack and tools are outdated and changes are directionless rather than future-facing because corporate leadership is vocally non- technical.
