    I have been working at YRC Worldwide full-time for more than 5 years

    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
