Good money, no life

Dockworker (Former Employee)
San Bernardino, CA

I worked at YRC Worldwide full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWorking here was great at first until Roadway merged with Yellow freight and turned the place upside down. I worked here for seven years and after the merger was layed off (not enough seniorty) You would think after seven years of service that would amount to something.

ConsIf you get a job here you can say goodbye to your life. You will be on call for years and must be ready to work at any time of the day or night. There are five daily shifts and you will work probably three different shifts per week and guess what, if they don't call one day congrats you just had a day off sitting around waiting for the phone to ring. Good Luck!!!!

Advice to Senior ManagementHappy employees make good employees!!!
