Benefits of Driving for Werner Enterprises – The Werner Difference

Feb 8, 2022 | Truck Drivers

Once you’ve achieved your Class A CDL license, your next task is finding a truck driving job with a reputable company. Sometimes, this can require as much research as studying for your CDL! That’s because you want to find truck driver jobs with the right salary, work-life balance, employee benefits and career opportunities.

It’s tough finding truck driving jobs that tick all the boxes. Some drivers sacrifice a particular benefit for a higher salary or compromise on other job desires. Here at Werner, we believe you should never settle for a job that doesn’t appreciate your skills and career aspirations! That’s why working with Werner is better than working for other companies. In this post, learn about the ‘Werner difference’ and all the benefits and career opportunities you can expect when joining our incredible team.

Employee Benefits

We believe all our drives deserve benefits that help them juggle their home and work lives. So we offer a competitive package of benefits that support our employees to live healthier and happier lives.

Depending on the job role, these benefits include:

  • Medical, dental and vision insurance
  • Wellness incentive benefits
  • Basic/accidental death insurance
  • 401(k) retirement savings (50% match of your first 6% invested)
  • Financial wellness
  • Longevity Pay
  • Career Currency program
  • Relocation assistance
  • Legal assistance
  • Identity theft protection
  • Fitness/recreational facilities

Better Work/Life Balance

Research shows that almost 40 percent of employees in all industries have problems disconnecting from work when at home. We don’t want our drivers to experience these issues. That’s why we promote a good work/life balance that allows our employees to pursue their interests and hobbies.

Whether you are a veteran looking for a new opportunity or a seasoned trucker searching for higher pay, we have various employment opportunities for all drivers to fit within everyone’s lifestyle. These opportunities include short-, medium-, and long-haul truck driving jobs that you can tailor around your schedule. The result? You can enjoy a better work/life balance.

Paying for Your Education

One of the biggest benefits of working with Werner is taking advantage of our Career Currency program. This benefit is available to the Werner driver, their spouse and/or dependent. It provides tuition help to drivers and supports the education of their families. We’ve teamed up with the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) to offer this benefit. This is very different from most other truck driver jobs, which typically offer tuition reimbursement. That’s because we provide upfront funding for college expenses, meaning you don’t have to get reimbursed by the company.

With Career Currency, you can support a child who enrolls at UNO’s 200 undergraduate and graduate school programs. You’ll get up to $2,500 per calendar year — that’s around 12 credit hours —on top of discounted tuition fees and waived administrative and registration-based fees. We’ll pay UNO directly, which simplifies the process.

There are other benefits to our Career Currency program. Because of our partnership, UNO will expedite your child’s admission and provide a dedicated concierge team with academic support resources.

More than half our truckers make over $75,000, and our top 25% earn over $85,000, making us one of the highest-paying trucking companies in the country. You will earn a guaranteed weekly truck driver pay of $1,000-$2,000, depending on the account. There are also 250 available home time and pay packages.
