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

    Pros

    See Werner trucks everywhere build lasting friendships with drivers

    Cons

    Low miles, low pay, lots of sitting, no detention (sitting) pay.

    I have 2 yrs experience and I quickly saw how they would take advantage of their truck drivers!

    Constantly watch your paycheck, loads, and miles, you will be jipped!

    They do not pay a set detention, drop and hook or layover pay! Unless you complain, then they'll throw you a couple bucks.

    They care more about the people in the office than the drivers who actually keep the company going.

    Try to avoid these big companies and make it your goal to fix your credit because working at these companies you'll never be able to save much. With good credit and /or money buy your own truck DO NOT LEASE and be your own boss! That is the only way you'll succeed in the trucking industry. Werner, Swift, etc...they're out to hurt your pockets and waste your time!

    Advice to Management

    Drivers talk! Soon youll be doing a complete overhaul like JB Hunt!

    Pros

    They will hire you back

    Cons

    If you get hurt on the job do not count on work comp for help. They will pay off every lawyer you hire to turn on you and work for them.Most of them in Ne already work for them. Stay safe and stay healthy. .

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like humans and not like dogs

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

    Pros

    Plenty of terminals with showers. Decent training

    Cons

    I was blamed for accident that i did not commit. Had to go back to location of accident and have the person who reported the accident inform Werner it was another driver. Werner did not take the time to investigate the accident property, they assumed it was me because i dropped a load off the same day. After 4 months.

    Advice to Management

    None, they are doing the job that is ask by the company senior team. If you have a problem with management then become a manager. As a driver get the experience and move on.
