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.
