Overall Reviews at Werner Enterprises

Expectations were never explained
After 6 months I was told the definition of "bi-weekly home time" was going to change. After getting home every other weekend up until that point, all of a sudden it was changed by my fleet manager. He never would answer why it had to change. So at Werner, bi-weekly now means you must stay out 14 days. Staying out 14 days gets you home once every two and a half weeks (approximately), which is not bi-weekly. Plus, staying out 14 days means you'll almost never be home on a weekend, so if you want to be home on a weekend, you must stay out almost 3 full weeks.
Solid well run company
Good company that gave me ever opportunity to be successful. I moved up on each move. They afforded me the opportunity to see the country and travel extensively .

Fine company under the right management
Werner Enterprises has a lot going for it and a strong history. My time there was productive and I had great experiences with drivers and fellow employees. Management makes all the difference as with many jobs, and there were some that ran their departments better than others.

assist drivers for assignments, great HR dept, company shouldn't promise something then not even give time of day to help.
Fun place to work
I learned alot about Transportation and Distribution. I also learned alot about Geographies working with this company.
Prosmet alot of different people
Conspoor mangagement of drivers
Great running vehicles, consistent miles with pretty good pay. Very good at responding to drivers with truck issues. Will bend over backwards to ensure their drivers are safe. Allows pets at a cost.
I'm new to the driving world, only worked here one year, but you have to start somewhere and Werner has been very helpful to me in my career so far. I started out driving teams and I would not recommend it, they didn't give us enough miles, however since switching to solo OTR I have been getting good loads and better pay. My driving manager is knowledgeable and cares about how I'm doing.
ConsNot enough home time
local account home every night
werner is a great company to work for if you can get on NETOPS were you can be home every night and pay is pretty good once you have been on account for a year or two.
Proshome every night new trucks good pay
Possibly the best company for a new driver
I greatly enjoyed my time driving for Werner's dedicated Dollar Tree/Family Dollar account. If I thought I could get more home time and more pay, I would go back in a heartbeat. I really took advantage of the driver unload structure to stay healthy and earn more pay, but the physical toll became too much coupled with frustration on the load quality coming out of the DT/FD Distribution Centers.
ProsGreat company support. Awesome people at stores
ConsTo make enough money, can't go home.
Professional and fast growing company
Excellent company, with well trained personnel. Technology and product portfolio are great tools and differentiators. Learn to work between two different business cultures: US and Latin America.
Prosworking environment, product portfolio
Conslack of knowledge of other cultures and needs
