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

    Pros

    Good salary, great benefits, loved being able to pay for things with my ID

    Cons

    No loyalty, almost no room for promotions if you are a female, commission rate is on the very low side.

    Advice to Management

    I witnessed horrible treatment of females. One manager was having a meeting with a big customer at the hunting lodge and he told his young female employee that she was going there to entertain the reps and that she needed to look good and smile pretty. This is just indicative of the culture that I preceived while employed there. Perhaps it's changed in the last few years but it seemed to me that only males climbed the ladder and were treated with respect.

    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.
