Merry Werner Screwmass

Werner Enterprises is a utopia compared to Iraq. Here is an interesting article from Traffic World:

"Werner Enterprises Named a Top 50 Military-Friendly Employer


OMAHA, Neb. -For the third year in a row, Werner Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: WERN) has been recognized in G.I. Jobs' sixth annual list of the nation's Top 50 Military-Friendly Employers®. Many military veterans possess valuable skills that transition well for Werner Enterprises, which is why they are so valuable to the company. To attract and retain veterans, the company has instituted the Werner Enterprises Professional Truck Driver Apprenticeship Program. This U.S. Department of Labor approved program provides veterans joining Werner Enterprises' professional driving force structured, on-the-job training and allows them to draw from their G.I. Bill during their first year driving for the company.

"The Apprenticeship Program and other policies are the reason veterans comprise 20 percent of our entire company workforce," said John Moore, manager of qualified recruiting for Werner Enterprises. "We emphasize the recruiting of veterans and each month we hire around 50 veterans for professional driving positions." "


A soldier's G.I. Bill could be used at any university or community college. Werner is more than happy to take the money.

Meanwhile, Werner executives were not feeling the pinch in 2008. C.L. and the rest of the gang had a merry little Screwmass in Omaha.

"The Associated Press reported that the top four officers will share more than $1 million in bonuses, with the CEO and chairman each receiving $350,000."

I found this website called bigbluescrew.com created by Starch. It was active for about five months and there has been no activity since May. Starch, please make a post and keep your blog active!

Werner Enterprises has joined YouTube with a video section. One video includes SuperBoy C.L. and steals shots from Superman (1978). I expected the boy C.L. to toss a blue crystal arrowhead and create the "Fortress of Fraud." Instead, the kid grinned like he was crushing a grasshopper into the ground. View for yourself, but have a barf bag handy. Something to be proud of.

Thankfully, other drivers have answered the director's call and filmed Werner. Here are a few:

Big Truck -- What Werner does best!

Werner truck on rock -- Say no more!!

Werner recruitment ad -- It's true, funny and it hurts!

Stay safe and give Werner a holiday gift--your resignation.

Smokin' -- Burn Baby Burn

A Werner Enterprises tractor and trailer caught on fire. Thankfully, no people were hurt and Werner lost all its cargo. Werner Enterprises should be fined for pollution and all the toxic smoke the fire released. Proving once again that working for Werner is no easy job. Drive safe.

Filling the Ranks & Pesty Overpasses

Larry is not giving C.L. a break. First, he exposed the unsanitary conditions of a Werner truck driver. Now, he takes on the equally filthy corporate office. Werner has been cheating drivers since 1956. In the past ten years, C.L. Werner has hired the finest minds to make his recruitment process a shiny paradigm of perpetual chicanery. Drivers/Student Drivers are lured to Werner with empty promises. Larry writes a thought provoking essay with wit and humor.

We think of the topic of “Shanghaiing” as something from the U.S.'s past--War of 1812. The reader will quickly discover that “Shanghaiing” is current and only the packaging is different—blue trucks instead of wood boats. Werner is up to the same antics.

Meanwhile, a Werner driver and a Swift driver were aiming to destroy the same overpass—on the same day! You cannot make these things up!

Big Blue Finger

Go ahead...take a peek. This is the closest an average person will get--made possible by a Werner driver's sweat and under-employment.

Werner Visit May 10, 2004 02:00 PM

"And, if you thought the exterior was special, catch a load of the interior. Walls in leather, mahogany, and marble. Apparently, the interior of the van is decorated exactly like C. L. Werner's office."

Looks like C.L. Werner knows how to spend your money.

Drive safe.

Werner Enterprises--Big Blue Baby

A few months ago, UPS discovered a way their drivers could save money—make as many right turns as possible. Here is a company that put some brains into saving fuel—instead of complaining.

What did Werner Enterprises do? C.L. Werner and his family cried to Senator John McCain. C.L. Werner got on his knees and begged McCain for lower fuel prices. Naturally, McCain told C.L. Werner to pay his drivers LESS money. Call me an *ss*ole, but I would rather see $80 a gallon for gas and Werner go bankrupt.

In 2000, Werner Enterprises had decent, newer model trucks; Werner Management was bad, but the trucks were in good shape. THAT HAS ALL CHANGED. I am hearing horror stories about trucks in disrepair. Without question, Werner is cutting every angle it can—shaving off as much money as they can. Driver and highway safety are being nickel and dimed. Beware.

And some good news. Lady Trucker, finally, received a settlement after suing Werner. Lady Trucker was seriously injured and Werner Enterprises immediately terminated her. Her blog tells the story. Way to go Lady Trucker!!

Word is spreading about Werner and Lady Trucker wouldn't go down without a fight. Times are changing for Werner Enterprises. Serious safety issues could balloon into a public relations nightmare for the Big Blue Screw. But, it is Werner's drivers and the public who are really screwed.

New Website, Werner's Apprenticeship & Raw Anal Smell

It is just a matter of time before the internet becomes a garden of anti-Werner sites. Larry (HolyFlyingMonkeys) is the newest member on the block with a single passion—show Werner Enterprises in their true light. His “Werner Trainer Craps Himself article has caused a shower or two at the Truckers' Report website—an excellent website that allows ALL views to be aired.

Speaking of raw anal juice...from Werner's website:

Once you've obtained your professional drivers license at a Werner approved truck driving school, you will be enrolled in the industry's premier driver training apprenticeship program. Individuals successfully completing the program are certified as a Werner Enterprises Professional Truck Driver and will receive a nationally recognized certificate from the U.S. Department of Labor.

For what it is worth--not much--and as a service to the public, I am offering free modified certificates (800x618 px) to any one interested in obtaining a “recognized certificate” from Werner Enterprises and the “U.S. Department of Labor.” The certificate will include your full legal/illegal name and state of residence. Why go through Werner hell? Do what C.L. and his executives do—create your own documents.

Werner Enterprises in no way, shape or form qualifies as a bona fide apprenticeship program. The U.S. Department of Labor has no authority sanctioning this certificate—especially with an outfit like Werner Enterprises. Government By the Elite, For the Elite.

Send your requests to: WernerScrews@hotmail.com

Disclaimer: WernerScrews is not responsible for any financial consequences the misuse of this all-around bogus certificate may entail. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. In all likelihood, the use of this certificate may cause other carriers/employers to question your Werner training—resulting in adverse penalties and/or sanctions.

Werner Enterprises--no win situation. Drive safe.

Here is the story:

06/27/2008 08:57:58 AM MDT

CHEYENNE, WYO. — A Cheyenne jury has awarded a Colorado Springs couple more than $18 million for injuries from a 2006 crash at the intersection of Interstate 25 and Interstate 80.

A tractor-trailer struck a 1993 BMW driven by Peter Brohpy.

Denver attorney Gary Ceriani says Brohpy suffered severe brain damage in the crash, and that Brohpy now uses a wheelchair and can barely speak.

District Court documents show that a jury found negligence on the part of the trucking company, Omaha, Neb.-based Werner Enterprises, and the truck driver, Cheryl Neal.

The jury awarded Brohpy $15.8 million and his wife, Kate Brohpy, $2.3 million for loss of her husband's future income.

An attorney for Werner Enterprises declined to comment.

Win One For the Gipper

The 08 Presidential Race is starting to feel like Wolf 359, The Alamo and Waterloo for the Republican Party, so WernerScrews created a patriotic, exciting banner for Mr. McCain. I don’t care for McCain or the Republican Party, but we all pity an underdog. Unless things change, McCain is going to get a butt beatin' in November, but you have to respect a man who willing to face his defeat, his Waterloo. (McCain could win, but the Democrats would have to royally screw-up. Something this website knows a lot about.)

Any Graphic Designer can create high-energy, witty banners for Hillary or Obama. The real challenge is McCain. I looked at CafePress and nothing excited me; all the T-shirt designs made McCain as exciting as three-week old bread bleaching under a Saguaro cactus. My banner “borrows” images off the internet--like stealing votes. The resulting image—yes, not perfect—embodies McCain and the Republican Party. I challenge other Graphic Designers to get off their lethargic butts and come up with similar images and help McCain in his greatest hour of need! If they are still employed and their work hasn’t been outsourced to China or if they still have a home with a computer!

Communist Computerworld and Empty Scrotum Journalism

I have some one-sided news to report! Mr. Donald Broughton of Avondale Partners calls Omaha-based Werner Enterprises "best in class" for its use of information and communications technologies to reduce costs and improve profitability. From a ComputerWorld article.

Naturally, I have two issues.

1. Here is a great quote.

"It's impossible to fudge the numbers. You can't claim you're resting when the truck is moving," says Donald Broughton, a transportation industry analyst at investment banking firm Avondale Partners.

A quote that continually paints a misperception about technology and safety.

Werner Enterprises did, in fact, fudge the numbers. Back in 2002, a Werner truck moving in 5 mph traffic would be logged into non-duty hours. Maybe this has changed, but it doesn't remove the possibility from happening again. After all, Werner Enterprises exploited this loop-hole in 2002 to increase driver hours. Something Mr. Broughton has not stated or is ignorant of.

Did Mr. Broughton research Werner's safety record? Nope.

Had Mr. Broughton researched Werner's safety, he would be surprised that Werner Enterprises is not any safer now with its fancy technology. That is a fact. Pure and simple.

2. The real villain is not Mr. Broughton. It is Computerworld. Several years ago, I called Computerworld a practitioner of "empty scrotum journalism." It seems Computerworld cannot and will not report fairly. The U.S. doesn't teach Communist news reporting. (Not what I learned.) Most journalism colleges--including two outstanding professors I had--instruct aspiring reporters to find two sides to every story. Puppies are cute, but find someone who hates puppies, talk to them and quote them. That is balanced journalism. Something Computerworld neglects.

That's why business pieces like this do more harm than good. Stay safe. Stay away from Werner.
