    I worked at Werner Enterprises full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I had a good boss, he knew my strengths and challenged my weaknesses. Most of my bosses were outstanding.

    Cons

    Directors and above don't have a clue on the 'heartbeat' of that company. They will be the demise; the two quarters were failure, and they, their lack of leadership, is it's direct reflection. They are lost on technology, they are so far removed and behind it's scary. Why they still try and rely on their own IT guys to build garbage programs is beyond me. This company is dying.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your offices and know your teams. You are so engrossed with chasing emails, you're failing at the most common thing, your people.

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

    Pros

    Home almost every night and every weekend with good pay.

    Cons

    Being fired for receiving two traffic tickets 2 months apart whenI hadn't even been to court for the first one. Both tickets were reduced to non-moving violations. Werner trashed my DAC Report reporting I was terminated for "Unsatisfactory safety reasons".

    Advice to Management

    You shouldn't just fire someone before they've had their day in court. A verbal or written warning? Even 6 months probation or one month suspension would have sufficed.

    I worked at Werner Enterprises (More than a year)

    Pros

    Consistent work, but then its truck driving and in demand.
    The dispatchers are kind, so long as you don't constantly bother them.

    Cons

    There are far better companies out there willing to pay what you're worth, and offer you compensation on down time.
    There were times when dispatchers would argue with me over their mistake, or flat out ignore me, and then give me short runs because i called them on it.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your drivers than you do your dispatch. There is no reason to ignore a driver

    Gain amazing experience. Werner has some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Nice culture

    Cons

    Depending on what department you are assigned, some times you will not have important stuff to do that day.

    Make sure to structure it where the intern stays busy
