    So I start Werner on Monday, I’m training in Fontana CA, I have my Cdl. So it’s 1 week in class and 3 to 5 weeks on the road. I will be OTR, I want to see the lower 48.

    so my questions are, what happens during the 1 week in the office?

    When it comes to training on the road I’ve heard that the first week I will only drive, but starting the second week it turns into team driving. Is this true?

    Where is the 34 reset taken since Werner has multiple locations throughout the country. Can the reset be taken at a Werner lot or basically any safe place.

    Training pay, recruiter said 650 a week. But everyone on the internet says don’t trust the trainer. I won’t know what I’ll make until I see the contract. I was told .48 cents per mile once I’m on my own. I’m going OTR and don’t care about home time. I’m single, no kids, I want to run all day 6 to 12 months with Werner and bounce.

    starting out in this industry, learn to research very well before making a career decision.

    My favorite part is that he caught ### fungus from his trainer. A nice souvenir. Also OP unless it’s Schneider they’ll probably make you team drive to repay your training. But it won’t be team freight lol because you’re a trainee. You’ll be delivering toilet paper at Mach 5.

    Just deliver your loads and kiss butt and DON’T HIT ANYTHING. Tell yourself every morning “I’m going to work at Walmart” or something to that effect.
