“Before retiring from the United States Army, I knew that the trucking industry would be my next career choice. When I was issued my first set of keys to my own truck at Werner, I knew that I had the basic skills and mindset to become successful as a professional driver. I later earned my professional driver certificate from the Department of Labor, thanks to Werner’s apprenticeship program. Werner didn’t just offer me a job, they paved the way to a second career.”
“When I transitioned from the military, I chose to work at Werner Enterprises because of their established reputation for professionalism throughout the Department of Transportation. Werner’s training program is second to none. The company has shown me that they take care of their veterans, as well as those transitioning from the government sector. I was proud to receive my professional driver certificate from the Department of Labor thanks to Werner’s apprenticeship program. Werner is ‘Service excellence for the long haul!”
