    Pros

    Good training, orientation, decent dispatch, good pay if your willing to drive.

    Cons

    Bare bones trucks.. no APU or inverter allowed. Your treated like a number.

    Advice to Management

    Stop recruiting so much and focus more on retention. If you have a loyal driver who just wants a inverter and clean truck just give it to him rather than some newbie you just graduated from your trucking school.

    I have been working at Werner Enterprises (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to learn the basics of trucking.

    Cons

    Inconsistant and incompitant dispatchers. I would wait up to 20 hours to receive a load, and then it might only be 250 miles round trip.there were weeks I got less then 1000 mile after complaining, then pleading to get longer runs.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to management is to make the dispatcher position the next level of advancement for the trucker, not a beginner no experience needed position. The dispatchers have truckers financial future in there hands.

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

    Pros

    Good for learning experience for new driver. Willing to teach new drivers.

    Cons

    Safety issue don't get resolved if brought before safety. Unable to reach anyone in H.R. Drive doesn't decided 34 hour rest break.
    New driver only get .38 per mile.
    All student drivers experience doesn't count as driving experience.

    Advice to Management

    Be more respectful to your driver's. If you're drivers is recapping past there 70hr. And is not under a load and turn off duty with below 10 hours on 70 hour clock allow the driver to decide 34 hour rest break. Not dispatch. This is a safety issue I bought up that was not address. And can cost a driver there life. Make sure that any safety hold on a driver is actually a valid and necessary and not done with malicious intent.
