    I have been working at YRC Freight (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company that actually pays you for time invested!!!!Company paid benifits for me and my family. Paid vacation up to 4 weeks,one week sick pay per year paid out to driver if not used.WOW it never ends.One of the safest companys i have ever worked for. avg milage per week 2500 avg salery 75000 per year gross plus company paid benifits.and actual paid time for drop and hooks and waiting detention and or repairs.

    Cons

    Frustrated work force because of recent merger and recession, this is understandable. Still one of the highest pay packages in the industry and lowest turnover rates i have ever seen in any trucking company which speakes for itself.turnover is at near 0 percent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on trucking!!! Were getting back on track and our competitors are are startng to shake in their boots.
