    Pros

    Clean neat shops to work in, most shop equipment is in working order,oem training available,trucks are mostly newer ,and for the most part clean

    Cons

    Almost Too many to list here...the company has no loyalty to its workers,there are way too many bs rule changes, and they happen way to often...they "outlaw" a tool once any mechanic in the whole organization gets injured using it...complete bs! Benefits are total crapcant move up in the company unless your a brown noser....any hard work you do WILL get unnoticed!

    Pros

    If your looking for a company that does business in a way that could only be described as unethical dishonest and gets you yelled at by customers on a regular basis you'll love working for Ryder the day I gave notice was the best work day I had.

    Cons

    The lies the finger pointing the buck passing the worst part was being forced to brake the law and in danger the public but lying to the customers to cover up for shop and general managers was no picnic either Ryder is not only a horrible company that cares nothing about their employees they care nothing about the public safety and the public is their customers ethics and standards just lip service at Ryder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I never meet a manager at any level shop administration or other wise that was professional enough to take advice

    I have been working at Ryder System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, and you start with vacation time

    Cons

    Work 12+ hours a day, Half that time spent on conference calls talking about what needs to get done instead of actually working on it. Roadside Response calls you at all hours of the night all the time and you have to stay on the phone with them until they get the driver situation resolved. Promotions in DFW seem to be on a "buddy" system. Work life balance is horrible. to many things to try to manage instead of having dedicated people for the task you will be expected to do everything....... you've been warned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    shop office employees need dedicated task (i.e: service writer (CSC) takes write ups, makes RO's/task,communicates with the customers, and gives workload to shop supervisor. Hire a parts guy for all parts, debit memos, credits and inventory control. Your shop supervisor needs to just focus on shop operations, training, safety, and warranty. Service manager should handle the customer visits and monitor shop operations, and help out when needed. instead everyone does all of this which causes a lot of miscommunication. Billing shouldn't be done by the shop. instead all billbacks should be submitted to a billing department with a PO attached that is investigated before we bill so the invoice error rate is minimal. pay better, you know you are going to make your management work 12+ hours a day, at least pay them like it.

    I have been working at Ryder System full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people that work at Ryder, but they are just as overworked as I am.
    Decent Benifits

    Cons

    No way of moving up without moving.
    Lack of Training.
    Lack of Help to get the job and tasks done properly
    Too many calls to say what we need to do and never gets done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at all the cons. You cannot keep good help. It will take two people to do the work I do in a day. Keep good help by listening to us. My GLM nor my Director listened, Asked nicely repeatedly. Even had a meeting with them to let them know our office and driver frustrations. They did not listen. The system does not work. Your SCOS(TMW) has been patched too many times. Your Peoplenet does not work. Too many conference calls to say what we need to get done instead of doing it. Need better IT support instead of farming it out overseas. Don't hate the job just hate the System and not enough help.

    Pros

    People are great and that's about it.

    Cons

    Mediocre is the norm at Ryder and if you just want a paycheck, come in, go home, and live a life that is in THE rat race then Ryder is the perfect place for you. Also if you're old and set in your ways this place is great. If you're young, want a real work/life balance, have ideas, want to move things along, make things better, improve processes, enhance technically, etc. RUN and don't come here. The truth is compared to most companies Ryder is well behind the trends of today. Systems are OLD! If you're in IT DO NOT COME HERE! You will regret it and you won't see any real investment in the systems that are currently put in place. The company has been around for 80 years but that's all they talk about. There is no real future plan, no real investment in its people, nothing to get excited about except an advertising campaign which may bring more business but they won't hire the support needed to deliver and more work will be piled on. I hope to leave as soon as I can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people, in your systems and look toward the past and hang on to the way we do things at Ryder. Ryder is now all about change, it's all lip service until you really do something about it.

    Pros

    Independent work ability; Great employees to work with

    Cons

    Workload will double or triple every year. They will continuously make you do more with less. Pay raises year over year are pathetic. Their pay scale is one of the lowest. This is only an option is you are desperate for a job and have no other alternative. ABSOLUTE WORST WORK LIFE BALANCE

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the way you load your employees, increase their work load constantly, have no regard for peoples experience, miserable pay and benefits, figure out the quality of your workforce few years from now. Mr. Sanchez, when you publish your multi million bonus to the employees.. you forget where you came from...

    Pros

    Stable, comfortable work environment, management is mostly laid back and understanding. If you need something from management like tools, work supplies, vacation requests, they are fast to get what you ask for.

    Cons

    No raises (or extremely low, ex $0.24 for 1 year raise with excellent employee review / $0.48 for 3 years worth of raises with really high employee review, no advancement, no opportunity, stagnate career . 10+ year employees dropping like flies and leaving the company. Pay is less than the industry standard according to multiple salary websites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raises, raises, raises. Over a 6 billion $ profit last year, and still no raises.
