Default Werner pay?

I've been reading on here about how low Werners pay is, .28-.29, but when you check out their web site it says students start out at .35 per mile. Why the difference?

I do know that Werner's ads are very misleading.

Many of them say 35 cpm or something but that is what you mileage pay would equal assuming you got the bonuses and an average amount of unloading pay, etc.
Finding the right trucking company is like finding the right person to marry. I really comes down to finding one whose BS you can put up with and who can put up wih yours.

That pay includes all bonuses (That you will never see) and such. Most students start out at .29cpm on average.

The bonus part is correct, but they start out at .26 a mile unless you take the Per Diem, then it drops to .25 a mile.

When I tried to talk to logs I was yelled at without them even listening to me! I was on hold for over an hour and then screamed at, I don't get paid enough for noone to treat me like that! Even their trainers are having logging violations! So run fast and don't look back at Werner! I know at least 3-5 people quit weekly cuz Werner is so bad and if you can live on $0 paychecks go to work for them!

You know 3 to 5 people quit there weekly ? If that's all then they sure have a low turnover rate . Try at least 3 to 5 drivers that quit hourly . I dunno why anyone would subject themsleves to that kind of garbage on a daily basis .
