    Hello everyone. Signed on to Werner for the dollar tree account out of Rosenberg Texas May 2023. They promised me $.81 a mile and three trailer unloads a week. It’s not anything I wasn’t used to the job before that was JB, Hunt family Dollar. The first 90 days were great. I got my home load every week on Friday or Saturday. No complaints. The money was good. I was averaging $16-$1800 a week before taxes. the beginning of the fourth month, out of nowhere someone took my home load from me in the middle of the night and gave me a short run to Austin. From that point on they started playing games of taking my home load from me claiming another driver had to get home for an emergency. I gave them my notice because I went from doing long runs to doing short runs around the Houston area. A Notice to them didn’t get their attention. I left thinking they would get their head out of their ### but they could care less. In the end when I left, I was making $1300 a week before taxes and unloading three trailers. What a joke. Oh, and they also do not pay you per diem. at orientation they have you fill out a form making you think you’re getting it. The trucks were good. I never had an issue. I had a freightliner. They just run you into the ground to suck every drop of blood out of your body. If you decide to jump on this account, you will average 4500 cases per trailer. And they expect you to unload at a rate of 750 cases an hour.

    I thought you worked for Rapid Transport. Now you work for Werner. I'm confused.
     
    Mbnpro Thanks this.

    I heard Werner is one of the worst mega carriers out there, and that the dollar store accounts are really hard on drivers physically.

    Hope you find something that pays good.
     
    Lonesome and Mbnpro Thank this.

    You are correct. All I did is post three companies I’ve worked for in the last Three years.

    The job is very hard physically. But for the last couple of years we were making bank. $1800-$1900 a week gross and it was worth every bit. Now they turned it into a slave shop.

    Sorry what happened to you. Thanks for sharing, hopefully drivers do research and stay away from Werner, they definitely don't care.
    One would think that, a driver like yourself who didn't mind the work, they would have kept you where you were.

    Maybe the economy is slowing down and even the dollar stores are getting hit and they're giving priority to trainers running teams?
