ED Magedson – Founder
Werner EnterprisesOmaha, Nebraska United States of America
I have been driving for 3 years and I am third generation in the trucking industry. I took some time off from the road and then the economy slumped. Upon my return Werner was the only company willing to take me back after my absence. Though the wonderful recruiter promised all my experience would be considered in my pay and I would be making .36cpm on my dedicated run for a large store who I will not name. I also would have my choice of trucks.
Well I knew better than trust a recruiter but werner reminded me. I currently make .24cpm, drive a truck with major mechanical issues that werner continues to delay repair on. I am not here to complain about that.
I haul 3 loads a week consistently, but to look at my pay it will not show it! Last week I recieved a $140.00 check for 1 load though I hauled 3 for that pay period. That was about 600 to 700 shy of what was owed to me. Not to mention not all that single load should have paid! Pay roll blamed Driver management and vice versa. Bottom line was take an advance we will charge you 8 dollars on money we know we owe you. They claim that this is standard proceedure through out the trucking industry. Like I am some newbie who has not been out there with other companies.
This is the first pay on time issues I have ever had. Currently they are up to 7 loads behind me in pay. They find ways to take incentive pay over things out of drivers control. Lie cheat and steal the werner way. They seem to always be trying to take money from drivers and get us to owe them money. Werner should stand for We Enjoy Ripping off New Employees Regularly
