    Pros

    If you do not have a home or personal life, the demands of working long hours with zero recognition at Ryder are perfect.

    Cons

    Ryder System, Inc.
    This is the epitome of an organization where the only button on their control panel says “Self Destruct”. During the past 20+ years they have inundated themselves with inept employees at middle and upper-level management positions who have neither people nor leadership skills. The business is run like a child day care center where the focus is strictly on today, without regard to its’ non-existent one, three or five year plan. Imagine that; why plan for the future unless you realize you do not have one. Management has made Ryder completely insignificant in a marketplace founder Jim Ryder created. Ryder over the past six years has twice as many negative sales months as positive ones. There is zero customer focus at the top which constantly adds to the run-away list of ‘former customers’. When it comes to bringing in quality talent, there is always room for Ryder’s revolving-door HR group to add empty suits to its special interest employee pool. Anyone considering a career in this dysfunctional zoo better think long and hard before signing on. Take the time to track down a former employee and get the straight scoop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start hiring quality employee and customer focused employees who have leadership skills

    Pros

    Safety is important, stable company, global in scope, expanding,

    Cons

    Marginal pay, low overtime availability, safety practices can impede job performance which is still expected, location experience heavily dependent on management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let your accountants have as much impact on daily operations, bean counters often can't see the forest from the trees.

    Pros

    Good work environment, loved my coworkers

    Cons

    High Level management lacked the where with all and know how to grow the company and take it to the next level. Promotions are too hard to come by due the fact that the incumbent employee has already been chosen and you did not have a chance from the beginning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please change the way business is conducted or give your employees a chance at success by promoting from within. This will be best for both the company and all employees

    I voluntarily resign because they hire bias supervisors and consistently add to an employee's workload.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Ryder is to have a job in today's tough job market. They do offer a steady paycheck each week. Every now and again lunch is served to the entire staff.

    Cons

    I did not like how management contradicts statements they make in meetings. Each day management speaks of safety and speed limits on fork trucks, but do not enforce their statements during the shift. Actually, the safest drivers are considered unproductive and usually assigned to other jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire supervisors who take pride in performance and fairness. I noticed some of the supervisors to be bias toward select workers and favor others. Some rules don't apply to select people. Too many times, issues that are discussed in meetings and forgotten about shortly after the meetings. If an issue and a solution is brought-up in a meeting, follow through with the same intentions throughout the shifts.
