Disapproves of CEO

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"!

    No opinion of CEO

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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.
