Another Anti-Werner Blog
After six years, WernerScrews is pleased to report that Lady Trucker has created a WebLog. Right on!
You can read her story here. This sentence pretty much tells it all.
“They violated what every working person wants... respect and loyalty.”
Proving once again, Werner doesn’t give a rodent’s butt about its employees.
Creating a Blog is easy and Werner Enterprises hopes screwed employees won’t bother. Werner Enterprises can dismiss one website, but its hired guns—those who work in Marketing and PR—have a much harder time discrediting two or more complaint sites.
WernerScrews received an e-mail from a truck dispatcher. They write:
“Just wanted you to know that I'm not surprised by this site. I know this is
hard for drivers to believe, but they treat dispatchers the same way, at least
the night and weekend people. If a guy would call me and tell me he was tired,
I'd tell him to stop, JT load or not. And trust me, I was busy...I usually had
300 trucks to watch on my shift. There were countless times when a driver would
call me very emotional, wanting to why his home load was taken, as he was
heading home for home time and/or had a family emergency. Even if we put the
note in Qualcomm to send the driver home, days and/or management would take that
load from him. And who got the brunt of their anger? You got it, we did.”
No one is surprised how Werner treats its office employees. However, WernerScrews receives very few comments from its office workers. Send them in! Especially when your at the office busting your butt for C.L.!
Werner Enterprises’ Top Executives Feather Bedding
WSJ: "As stocks sank after the 9/11 attacks, scores of companies rushed to issue options to top officials. For recipients of options, the lower their company's stock price when options are awarded the better, since the options grant a right to buy shares at that price for years to come. The grants set recipients up for millions of dollars in profit if the shares recovered. Here is a look at grants made in September 2001."
“ Werner Enterprises
Number of top-level executives receiving grants: 5
Total estimated Black-Scholes value at time of grants: $8.5 million
Difference between Sept. 10 close and the options' exercise price: Down 26%
Company comment: Chief Financial Officer John J. Steele said the Sept. 28 grant did not mark a yearly low, and said "no one knew what direction the market was going to move in the future."”
The Enron-style executives at Werner Enterprises are Mr. Steele and Mr. Reiser—the “brains” behind Werner Enterprises; ethics are left in the dust to die.--- WernerScrews 10-4
