Former Employee - Dispatcher in West Juneau, AK

I worked at YRC Freight full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

I worked there 23 years and all was well til Yellow bought Roadway Express and ran us into the ground. High salary until cuts can into affect.

Cons

Yellow ran Roadway Express into the ground. Union workers do not care about the success or profitability of the company. Union protects the worst members Management afraid to fire pigs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire the lazy teamsters. Too many layers in management. Will be bankrupt by 2015.

    I worked at YRC Freight full-time

    Pros

    There are not many Pros

    Cons

    The union workers handle freight with no regards to customer satisfaction.
    I witnessed countless times freight being loaded marked fragile being slammed in to trailers trying to get to fit.
    Freight left out of shipments on purpose because it was a volume shot and all of it wouldn't fit
    Food (candy,snacks) packages being ripped open and eaten.
    Freight being lost for weeks on end.
    Freight is always late.
    Care more about how much a trailer weighs rather than is the customers freight arriving on time
    Shipment being loaded on leaking and substandard trailers.
    EXPEDITED SHIPMENT IS A JOKE. STIme shipments are not tracked like they should and move with regular shipments YET customers pay more for it
    Customers shipments are damaged constantly.

    I worked at YRC Freight full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of a single pro. It was nice to have experience in a unionized setting on my resume.

    Cons

    Long hours, management at my terminal didn't support eachother, the terminal manager was overworked and a dick , poor wages, difficult to get time off, and you're stuck dealing with whiny Teamster's that have poor work ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves
