Pros

Good Money to start off with, quick pay raises as well. Management was good to work with. Location was ideal.

Cons

Training plans-made a transition and added a new entity which required a lot of overtime and a lot of people waiting impatiently for a long period of time

    Current Employee - Road Driver in Columbus, OH

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

    Pros

    When it is good, it is really good. The flow of freight keeps you on your toes and keeps you wallet filled.

    Cons

    Freight slowly decreasing, company falling apart. Very poor upper management. Sneeky back door deals and corrupt politics. They want the drivers to take pay cuts while the upper people still make millions! Heaven forbid they lose $100 a yr on budget cutbacks! The biggest con is there are non cdl qualified people that "tell you how to do your job"!

    Former Employee - Applications Analyst II in North Akron, OH

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

    Pros

    Union Workers held in high esteem.

    Cons

    Salaried staff bears the brunt of Company's down sizing with no pay raises or reductions in salary in exchange for more responsibilities. If you don't live near their headquarters in Overland park, KS then you have little job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cost controls can be penny wise and pound foolish when you consolidate staff positions at their headquarters (KS) reduces the company's overall effectiveness due to the loss of experience from other regional locations. Specialized skills are lost in centralization of staff in KS with an associated loss of more advanced Business Intelligence initiatives.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
