    Pros

    People are great. The only downfall is that we are always worried about YRC and their issues that are not to do with Reddaway.

    Cons

    Worrying about YRC is always the only issues. They do not work well and they are not good at running their op cos. Need to get their ducks in line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GET AWAY FROM YRC

    Pros

    Health insurance is free if you're hired on permanently.

    Cons

    Too many. They basically force probationary employees to work overtime, illegal under state law, if you turn it down, they'll end your probation and employment immediately. Their TM is a liar by omission and their dispatchers run things with a boss/bully mentality as opposed to a partner mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use common sense when it comes to your "no accidents or incidents" on probationary policy. Most new hires, especially recent school grads, are bound to have 1. It makes you look like you hire on anyone, just for cheap labor (no benefits needing to be paid) and then get rid of them, but still got what is basically temporary work out of them.

    Pros

    Nice coworkers. Good pay. Good hours that makes it flexible for full-time students or busy people. Kaiser health benefits. Free coffee.

    Cons

    Just like the other posts stated, the organization for this company is really bad. People who train you are people who practically has been there for the company for a very long time, however, that doesn't mean they do things correctly. They each have different techniques to do their job and it might not even be correct. When they teach you it isn't guaranteed that the information they're giving you is accurate. You can still get in trouble or get write ups for doing it their way which isn't really your fault because you were taught the way they told you. It is frustrating when you're getting in trouble for something you were taught...and that just makes you doubt the company training system and management as a whole. Some people in the office can just try to screw you over by teaching you the wrong stuff if they don't like you which is really unprofessional and they are always saying we have to work as a team but there is really no sense of teamwork. Since it is not working through a quota system in the office, expect to have coworkers who barely do anything or just purposely do their work slowly just to kill time while you're busting your butt off doing ten times more work than them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please have managers doing their job and try understanding the job tasks of their own employees. Some of them don't really know what we do or even have an idea. They are just there.... for no purpose. Please organize the training system. If there is a better training system, workers will be able to do their job correctly and have a better information on understanding their duties. Better training system means less mistakes and that helps the company and brings growth to the company. Workers shouldn't rely on other workers to train them who might not even have any idea of what they are doing or not even know how to explain it thoroughly enough for you to understand. The company needs someone who is actually a trainer who specify in that job and who can go in details of the job without rushing due to not having enough time to teach because they are busy doing their own job.

    Pros

    Lots and lots of overtime! To make up for low pay!

    Cons

    Old equipment,poorly loaded and routed trucks,plus they start so late for 80% of drivers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees and stop making promises that put you in a bind.

    Pros

    Good pay and excellent benefits provided to employee and family at no cost! Good people to work with even if moral is low

    Cons

    Union concessions and the company's financial wows mean no pay raises, reduced paid time off, out dated equipment, uncertain of future stability. This company was the best before YRC bought and ruined it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You broke it! functionally and financially. Congratulations on those fat bonus you paid yourselves while bringing the company to the edge of bankruptcy! Good luck

    Pros

    Professionally, nothing. Some of the people are awesome. They provide free coffee, but it's HORRIBLE!

    Cons

    Management, or lack of. No communication from the top down. End-users are kept in the dark and notified after changes have been implemented instead of notifying them in advance and offer training on the changes made. No training is provided. No team meetings. Inferior manuals for the company from the employee handbook to training materials. Employees are only as good as they are trained. Horrible management in a few of the departments. The company obviously supports management that abuses power and its disgraceful.

    They do not monitor departments and the daily flow of operations, if they did, they would see a horrible balance of employee to work ratio, and realize that more employee's are needed to cover the work flow in certain departments.

    Low pay. You get what you pay for, if a company pays minimum wage, they receive minimal commitment and dedication from an employee, but this company does not care about that they only care about themselves not the morale of the employees.

    No room for advancement, especially if you are a woman.

    "Open Door Policy" is a joke, if you want to discuss anything, it's brushed aside and excuses made to cover it up, waste of time to express feelings and try to get things changed, they will not hear anything you have to say, which is why I am done. The bosses that have been there for years and years in the same position, are the problem with the company, they are not willing to modify the model of the business to fit the current economy, they modified it for themselves by cutting pay, freezing pay, taking away benefits, but bonus themselves, awesome!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many management positions have been filled by the same person for many, many years, longevity does not necessarily mean they are the right person for the job, especially if the company is changing and advancing, not training management to move along with the forward motion of the company is a poor business decision.

    Know your employees, their jobs. No way should you not know what I do on a daily basis, but you don't, you don't ask, you don't check in, you do nothing.

    Management has others take care of their job for them, instead of taking care of it themselves, they have a regular paid staff member do their job, and I've been told by several people that they have to do it without an advance in pay.
