“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!'"

“When I was doing research on possible employers in the Omaha area, I started to notice a common theme when reading about Werner Enterprises, and that theme was their support of our military. When I joined the Werner family, I was given an opportunity to help our professional drivers and help our company in the Safety Department. Shortly after hiring on, I saw that first-hand, when I informed Werner’s Vice President of Safety and Compliance Jaime Maus of my looming military assignment. There was no complaining, only action. I received countless offers of assistance from my coworkers for all of my day-to-day tasks and chores that it takes to run a home. When I returned back after a nearly 7-month absence, the Safety Team was ready to help get me up to speed again, just like they had when I was hired. I am proud to have a military family and I am proud to have a Werner family too.”

“Having served in the United States Army as a mechanic, I worked on wheel and track vehicles, so I was looking for a career where I could utilize the mechanic skills I had learned in the military. What I discovered was a growing company, and 29 years later, Werner continues to grow and values hard work and dedication while providing unbelievable opportunities. Werner Enterprises has provided me the opportunity to use the skills I learned in the military and develop new skills. I started as a yard hand/trailer mechanic and was able to work my way up to a shop manager position in Dallas, Texas. After nine years with the company, I transferred into the Human Resources Department where I have been able to advance into my current position as the associate director. As a veteran working for Werner, I am appreciated for my military service and proud of how we recognize and honor our military heroes.”

“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.”
