Current Employee - Service Manager
Current Employee - Service Manager

I have been working at Ryder System full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

If you thrive on having responsibility, you'll love working here!

Cons

All those responsibilities... you won't have the authority to make many decisions, as we were able to do. They have a leash on you now and they think that's a good thing. They will tell you (after you are hired) that to do the job properly it will take you 120-130 hours PER WEEK!! They will only focus on what you don't get done, not on what you do well. Get as much money as you can up front... raises are as frequent as snow at their headquarters (Miami). They have little respect for their front line managers.... be prepared to be un-appreciated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get real on Service Manager expectations... let the Service Manager do his/her job and spend time with their (your) customers and build durable relationships. When you give out bonuses... pay the Service Managers first, not the sales staff! Without the service department, you have nothing to sell!

    Ryder's a great company, some of there polices are uncalled for but the education you receive out weights most faults.

    I worked at Ryder System full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    training is second to none, willingness to work with employee, benefits are reasonable. all in all its a very good company.

    Cons

    middle management changes too quickly, policy's affect your personal life, monitor driving status very closely, can have devastating consequences no matter how long you've been with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel they need to look at all the circumstances before making any rash decisions on termination in regards to what the policy states. its not always black and white.

    Pros

    Strong leadership. Company is financially healthy and is a leader among its peers.

    Cons

    Training and development is still weak. The effort to change is starting to show but still needs more improvement. Compensation is just ok unless you are in a executive.
