Former Employee - Regional Coordinator in Akron, OH

I worked at YRC Worldwide full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The Pay was excellent. Working at and with the terminals was fun.

Cons

The corporate atmosphere was very hostile. Mistakes were not allowed, every detail was micromanaged. People were micromanaged at the corporate level. If you weren't the type of person who would walk all over your coworkers to please the bosses, they didn't want you. I saw good people turn hostile just because they feared of losing their jobs. Numbers were always being played with. People did not matter to them. Only money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You'd get better results from your employees and your drivers if you treated them better. Care about something other than just money and maybe you wouldn't be so poorly managed.

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Former Roadway leadership was competent.Vacation was good under Roadway management.

    Cons

    Very stressful. Senior Yellow Freight management couldn't be trusted. Poor communication between cross country departments and from Yellow management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Because of bad upper management decisions, destroyed a good company (Roadway), its employees and status in community.

    Pros

    Great co-workers!!! Could actually be a decent job with right upper management.

    Cons

    Senior management. These guys are a joke! Micro- managed by people who leave their office once a day and think they actually know how to do your job. Low moral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get lost. Hire some real upper management.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
