    Pros

    It used to be a great company. Then YRC started buying other companies and it drove the value of the company down.

    Cons

    When YRCW started buying other companies, they overextended themselves and ended up selling much of what the bought.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of those who work for you.

    Pros

    ok pay And benefits are good

    Cons

    slow hiring process, pay cuts, unstable job, hours, days, the female area manager is very difficult to get along with. She slept her way to the top and if you want to keep your job she expects you to do the same.

    Advice to Management

    cut out all the middle men. Get rid of your problem managers

    Pros

    Decent benefits, but even that has taken a blood bath in the last 5 years. My dental coverage used to be $1000 per person per year. Now its $600 with a 40% copay.

    Cons

    Worst management team I ever worked for. (Yellow) There is no accountability from the top to the bottom of the work force. You can work hard or do nothing but clock in and out. Nobody cares, management or labor.

    Advice to Management

    More meet and greets (like fedex does) instead of paying to put your drivers up in a hotel room after only driving 340 miles. Stop squandering the money from all the employee concessions from the last 5 years. Start investing back into the company. ie towmotors, tractors, trailers. fixing the buildings & repaving the yards would be a good start.

    Pros

    The pay at YRC is not at the low end of the spectrum for LTL motor freight.

    Cons

    Pay has been slashed for labor and management. Pension--frozen. 401(k)--zero company contribution for the past 5+ years. Health benefits--continual rise of employee costs. Job security--non-existent. Advancement opportunity--slim to none. Upper management does not communicate nor ask for employee input. Reviews have not been completed for several years. This company is continually on the verge of bankruptcy yet is able to add to its already top-heavy structure of more and more highly compensated upper management positions commonly filled by cronies of those in the top positions.

    Advice to Management

    Ask for and at least consider input of employees. Understand the value of motivated people working toward common goals.

    Pros

    Roadway's customer service was local and wonderful to work with on daily situations. The drivers were engaged with the reps and during driver meetings.

    Cons

    Not having customer service local has hinder YRC. Also mergering the sales teams together hurt the brand, people lost confidence. The bonue structure was set up where you could never make bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your customer service people, sales reps and drivers. They have their ear to the ground.

    Pros

    Union representation w/health care coverage that can't be beat.

    Cons

    Terrible senior management, bordering on bankruptcy, company is a sinking ship.

    Advice to Management

    Tie bonuses to profitability (what a concept), have one bonus structure in place for the whole company top to bottom. Stop recycling previously fired managers.
