Former Employee - Dispatcher in West Juneau, AK
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 (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I can't really think of any except maybe that it pays more than min. wage.

    Cons

    Horrible pay. Horrible hours. Terrible management. Treated like a common thief.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking away our benefits, lowering our pay and putting us on call

    I have been working at YRC Freight full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good money & benefits until the layoff hit.

    Cons

    Layoff on call status for dock work is terrible.
    Yellow Freight & Roadway Express Merged together and then caused thousands of teamsters to be laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step #1...If you want to make money, you have to spend money!
    Make a commercial for television viewers to see what your company is all about.
    The reason for company failure,is the management running the company from the supervisors all the way up to the big shots that are making in excess of $110.000.00 a year.
    If they were to take a 15% cut in their pay like all the teamsters did for the company,then recall all the people back off from layoff.
    Step#2... See step #1
