This is a good company to work for - hopefully the economy improves and everything is sorted out at the top level.

I have been working at YRC Freight full-time for less than a year

Pros

The compensation is competitive, but not for a 50 + hour work week.

Cons

Working in a union environment can test one's patience, especially when you are not a union member.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep at it! The people that don't want to be there will leave soon enough.

    I worked at YRC Freight full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of room in the parking lot since less employees, the merger was a really bad idea i think.

    Cons

    Since merger, nothing much good has happened. Stock has been dropping since 2005 when they slowly let small groups of people go, They did not have to notify the state doing it that way, how clever of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reverse the merger, what a bad idea that was.

    I worked at YRC Freight for more than a year

    Pros

    Good people, nice building and location. Everyone works hard to accomplish the mission with outdated and diminishing resources.

    Cons

    Big Corp - politics trump performance. Everything's been cut to the bone and now they're extracting the marrow. Be prepared to bring your own coffee maker and don't be surprised if you have to bring your own toilet paper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck with the unions, creditors, debt and the competition.
