Werner Enterprises took my husband on Nov. 22,2010.
The recruiters promised him $.29/mile while training. I took my husband to the crappy hotel in Indianapolis,In and dropped him off w a confirmed date of return in 2 weeks. He was told that he earned 1 day off for every 7 days driven. my husband did not return for 6 weeks.
His 1st trainer stranded him in Mississippi for a week while he took a vacation. When he finally made it home he got 2 days w us and i spent a whole day taking him back n forth from Indy. My husband was then gone for another 6 weeks. Meanwhile he was only getting paid 350.00/wk before taxes & insurance.
My husband brought home 160.00/wk. He was told that his training wouldn't last more than 6 wks& it has been 12 wks now. He got great reviews from both of his trainers. When my husband started driving on his own he asked a number of times for a employee handbook& was never given 1.
He drove for Walmart, Dollar General, Dollar Tree on a deducated route. His dispatcher falled 2 tell my husband that he had specific paperwk 2 fill out@ each stop inorder 2 get paid for unloading the truck@ each stop therefore he was working for free. After about the 10th time asking bout his pay his disbatcher said he noticed it but just set it aside. Werner owes my husband 2 grand& still has not paid.
Werner also paid him half of what he was told per mile. We are sueing Werner Enterprises for back wages& damages. Werner is the most dishonest company i have encountered. Working for McDonalds would get you further in life.
The day my husband turned in his truck 143 other drivers did the same for the same reason. Werner Enterprises is the worst company 2 work 4 & unless u want 2 get screwed on a daily basis don't work 4 Werner.
