    I worked at MIQ Logistics

    Pros

    Peers are fantastic and knowledgeable. Like soldiers on the battlefield many friendships where forged.

    Cons

    Multiple paycuts and being stripped of benefits including bonus opportunities and 401k matching coupled with short staffing and hiring freezes should say enough about this company.

    Upper management is out of touch with what the employees are up against and only interested in what the monthly reports look like to the private investors.

    Middle management is ineffective. Getting anything meaningful accomplished through them is an exercise in futility.

    Employee moral is at an incredible low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management needs to listen to the people on the ground and pass that along in a more effective manner. Stop looking for the cheapest route at the expense of company moral. No book about teamwork or customer support is going to correct the issue if the team is constant beaten down.

    Pros

    They use to have the top pay and benefits and the best pension in the industry now with all of the cuts they are no better than an non union company

    Cons

    The company is in financial trouble and you don't know if you are going to have a job from day to day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Teamsters have made enough sacrifices to save this company it is time for upper management to do the same

    Pros

    Great pay, and insurance, so so hours to choose from. Pretty good atmosphere with all the people working so closely.

    Cons

    The whole gets reprimanded for what the few do wrong,seems unfair. Way too much lighting. Causes headaches. Chairs are not the best to sit in all day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you know who is casing problems deal with the individual, don't punish the whole. Give in on write up if someone is late for a legit reason.

    Pros

    salery, healthcare(eye,dental,etc.) and retirement, not to mention a safety consious work environment and safe work rules to follow.

    Cons

    in these days of a down economy, job security is just not there. it seems the low person on the totem pole is just a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more honest communication between employees from the bottom up to upper management. beleive it or not, people will work better if they know the truth, not from rumors.

    Pros

    Union job with union wages, benefits other companies do not have. Mileage and time off is great when you work. problem now is to get everybody to work.

    Cons

    sometime they make dispatch mistakes, maintenance of trucks it the pits, and sometime the right hand don't know what the left hand is doing. need to save money but will send and overloaded truck on the rd to get a ticket and have to pay a fine. just one small example of waste.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    force workers to abide by union agreement when working, move freight, and don't waste money.

    Pros

    Co workers, pay, location, and vacation time. The only reason i worked there was the union. I loved the option to work days.

    Cons

    Terrible equipment, awful management that knows nothing about logistics! Being laid off when people who are unable to do the work are still full time! People with seniority do absolutly nothing and expect everyone else to do their job while they get paid! Being forced to work hours that ruin any family relationships. I am divorced because of YRC!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Study logistics, freight management, and how you treat employees!

    Disapproves of CEO
