    Pros

    Union job makes things easier
    work seven hours get paid for eight
    just do your job and no hassles at all

    Cons

    being union means having to start at the bottom of seniority and work up
    this is not an easy challenge and the guys at the top do not help
    It maybe a union on the outside, but on the inside it is all for one at the top

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quit
    you will never win

    Pay more attention to who is in lower management leadership positions, not always is someone fit for such a position especially one that is essential to a particular office's success.

    Former Employee - Senior Revenue Specialist in Overland Park, KS

    I worked at YRC Worldwide

    Pros

    Good pay
    decent benefits
    co workers were like family in my department

    Cons

    comm,uting 60 miles to work was tough
    economy made for internal problems
    merger of Roadway and Yellow is very difficult
    stress level high

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to learn more what happens on the workers level... they have lost contact with the reality of the jobs . YRCW has a lot of good employees and the managment should learn from their experiences. I believe they took on too much with the merger and did not handle it well..
