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

Pros

Average salary, allowed to work independently (depending on location/ supervisor) after proving you know the job. Advancement opportunity after proving yourself.

Cons

Working holidays because the customer dictates the work schedule, Ryder must accommodate them. Sometimes feel isolated as not sure where other accounts are to look for potential career advancement opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More promotion from within- set up an internal advancement track for individuals that want the responsibility and show they can handle it.

    Former Employee - Customer Logistics Supervisor in Lansing, MI

    I worked at Ryder System full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Base salary was competitive with good benefits and perk options. Daily work schedule was routine but not boring and repetitious. Advanced training was avaliableand encouraged.

    Cons

    On-site human resources was a bit unorganized. Customer is not always right, routinely employees and mid-management had to jump through hoops to remove any responseability of recieved damaged goods. Exceeding expectations wasn't acknowledged enough yet certain bonuses were determined by company production.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach when pertaining to your own ideas being shot down. Make more of a presence to the hourly employees.

    Current Employee - Shared Service Center in Alpharetta, GA

    I have been working at Ryder System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Better than unemployment.
    Very casual culture: jeans and flips type of place.
    Can set your own hours.

    Cons

    Low starting pay.
    Advancements & merit raises are far and in between. If and when you do get a raise, don't be insulted if it's only 5 to 10 cents an hour.
    Rising healthcare costs due to aging and fattening staffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on improving shop management nationwide. We are letting our customers down way too often. Get better quality employees by opening up the checkbook.
