Re: For Werner Drivers
I drove for Werner for a total of 7.5 mos as a team driver. We were a high mileage team, that rarely asked for time off before 10wks on the road none stop. Our thanks for running so continously? Having our truck ordered to stop at an unauthorized fuel stop for otr trucks, the truck "Stolen", then recovered 2hrs later on Werner Property by Charlotte NC PD. Ordered by werner to complete delivery in atlanta ga, than ordered to werner yd in atlanta ga, then fired, ordered off property, and have been unable to gain re-employment with any transportation company since. DAC reports NOT DRIVER PREVENTABLE, and werner tried to convince CHPD that it was a horrible mistake, the company was only recovering a truck from the fuel stop....Recover my a--, the "Recovered Truck" wasn't even the same type, color, vin#, MDOT# or TR#, plus it was a bobtail. Ours was still in the fuel pullup lane...with a LIVE BORDER DHL LD!!! on the ATTACHED TRLR!
Good luck with the company, cann't tell you how many drivers you are going to meet that werner FIRED, then rehired due the drivers not being able to get work anywhere else, except at a company that denigriates it's employees who operate the vehicles. Get used to your delivery directions in NY and NJ or anywhere else for that matter, NOT EVEN BEING UP TO DATE OR ACCURATE!!!! and Heaven forbid! you should find 6 streets off of a main street next to the atlanta airport with the same name, and the street you need, doesn't even have the proper name showing until you terrify the airport with driving past the rear takeoff fence. Heaven forbid, you should find more than 1 street in the same area with the same for any of your deliveries! Good luck with the paperless log system as well. Don't breath on the QC, pray the wind doesn't blow, and most of all, don't rock the boat climbing in or out, otherwise you will violate yourself/or logs will do it for you to the point you lose your job.
Once again, have fun with an improperly run company. Safety should have been replaced long before. The DOT needs to pull it's head out of Werner's log departments rear, and truly investigate the companies mismanagement issues from the logs on up.
