First of all they promise you the world and totally misrepresent what is lurking ahead for you (misery, believe me). The trainee gets $300/week from 0-138 hours, $350/week from 139-200 hours, and $375/week for hours between 201-300. To get 300 hours will take you at least ten (10) weeks to get because of the methods used by dispatch to limit your loads and hours. If you have the stomach and fortitude to last this long they will either give you a truck or say that you need more training for poverty pay.
They run a 24/7 training program from three (3) facilities to keep up with all the drivers that quit on a daily basis. They are not a growth company, they are abusers. Anyway, once you get to $375/week or obtain your own truck, they make life even more miserable to make you quit. Simple, they want to bring in a new trainee at $300/week, stick them with a trainer, and keep costs low. If you get your own truck that means that they have to pay you according to the pay scale (which the recruiter lies about anyway). This just equates to more money out of their pockets, but since they can stick a new trainee in with a trainer for low wages and get somewhat of a team driving scenario, it is cheaper for them.
I made it to 235 hours and was not allowed to go home for seven (7) weeks. It was impossible for me to contact my SDM from the road. I took a ULOA (unauthorized leave of absence) hoping they would take me back. Wrong. However I have a friend who has just about zero (0) hours after graduating from CDL A class, but they are trying to lure him in and will not take me back.
Think about it. They really do not want full time company drivers. They want low paid trainees going through the system. It is only logical from their standpoint, but is totally "shitty" for the trainees and drivers. The slogan of We Care, Werner Cares is a crock! Stay away, they are pieces of shit and full time liars. Don't help them line their pockets with money by abusing you and your family.
