Werner / Scamming

1 Omaha, United States

During hard times my fiance decided to go to a private truck driving school. Needing a job as quickly as possible and being brainwashed into thinking this was a great company, he signed on. Leaving one week after the birth of our second daughter. Having been told that the 275 hours of training was the most but that there drivers were the best trained in the business isnt going to be a lie after all. So after he starts driving as a team with his trainer he comes to find out that the trainer hadnt been logging out and that he was finshing his trainers hours for that day. So he was screwing him on hours. He tells his manager that he wants to be home by Thanksgiving, which was early on in the training, he shouldnt have done that. All of a sudden a week before hes supposed to be done his trainer comes up sick and has to stay in the hospital for 2 days. Wanting to be home for the holiday and seeing his kids a three year old and the other who is now over 2 monthes old, and being home for my dieing mothers benefit he decides to come home with only 10 hours left of training. While out doing the training he hears from other truckers not employed by them that the government pays them $10.000 per student. They try to keep you in training as long as they can and when it time to be done or you start throwing a fit they start trying to get you into a truck. Well some people are not being called back after waiting for a truck or sitting at terminals for months at a time. So at this point it is time for him to call his FM and tell them what day hell need a ticket so he can return. His FM tells him to call back there so many people working for them they have to schedule him to come back. Werner is just hiring people to make money and hiring tons of hardworking people who need jobs to support there family and screwing them over. We have yet to hear today when he goes back. This company needs to be exposed for all their wrongs!!
