A bad place to work unless you are incompetent but a great self-promoter (you may thrive)

Pros

- A Fortune 500 company (well, in the 401-500 range)

Cons

- Career progression is not linked to ability or effort. Talented and hard working people may get stuck at the same level while the least intelligent and the least capable are often promoted (not all the time - there are also some very smart and talented people, especially at the highest levels).

Advice to Management

Upper management should attempt to instill a culture where the most talented employees are identified, developed and promoted. Unfortunately, it sometimes takes a smart person to recognize another one so this may not happen.

    Pros

    Fair pay. We were off a day each for thankgiving and christmas.

    Cons

    Filthy driver facilities (restrooms and showers) at Ryder shops, which is where they force you to fuel the truck. Shops are under staffed, causing long waits at times to get repairs done. Drivers are a dime a dozen.

    Pros

    - Decent starting salary -Cell phone expensed monthly -401k and stock discount/contributions

    Cons

    *(May vary by account and location) -Teamwork does not exist. Culture fosters backstabbing and only trying to set others up for failure -Going above and beyond expectations only gets you held to a higher standard and added responsibility -False promises of positions offered only to be swept from under you and given to others -If not in the limelight to brown nose the bosses, you will be managed out. -Work/Life balance does not exist. No matter what, you must stay as many hours as necessary to ensure a completed job -Opportunity for growth is VERY limited if you are not willing to relocate to a different city or state -Salary does not match workload/responsibility -Can not go to HR or higher ups in hopes of addressing concerns without fear of later being punished/managed out

    Advice to Management

    -Appreciate and recognize those that work the longer hours and push harder to ensure the jobs get done effectively -Possibly give more incentives for the 2nd and 3rd shift employees -Provide employees with the right tools to do the job and they will get it done effectively!
