Overall Reviews at Werner Enterprises
Professional Driver | Omaha, NE | Nov 18, 2019
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.

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.

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.

Worst managed company on planet earth. Trucks constantly breaking down. Had to get advances on my own salary to pay for hotels and things that most companys provide company debit cards for. had to argue to get paid my due salary

spent too much time in shops getting equipment fixed then other drivers would have to take the load to make sure "on time". Had way too many dispatchers in the short time there. Many times had to go contact dispatchers' managers or even further to get treated "fairly".

Werner is a great company. They work hard to show how much they appreciate their employees. Office employees are expected to work 10-hour days, and some of the "normal" holidays are not honored.

Company is driver verses employe
Company changes rules after you comply. .leaves driver stuck at shop. Treats drivers poorly. Unless you turn other drivers in. Unsure when you get to go home. Loads on time time with family when ever. Pass d o t medical. Company doctor or safety says no . suspended with out pay. Now you abandoned truck now no more truck driven for you.

Productive and Enjoyable Company to be a part of.
I enjoyed working at Werner for the past 11 years. Of course, Safety was the main concern every day. After doing complete pretrip inspections on both tractor and trailer, I then proceeded to pick up preassigned load, delivering of the load and post pretrip inspection, then picking up a back haul and repeating the process the next day.
The hardest part of the job was being away from my family for extended periods of time. However, I took pride in the knowledge I was providing for not only myself but my family.
I learned commitment to safety for the motoring public which is the number one priority.
The most enjoyable part of working for Werner was sense of pride and accomplishment of a job well done. Also earning my one million mile milestone accident free.
