    Pros

    Great Healthcare, great coworkers, not bad pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update how you do business across the board, YRC is doing business pretty much the same as they have done it since day one.

    Former Employee - City P&D, Yard &Dock in Akron, OH

    I worked at YRC Worldwide full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, but even that has taken a blood bath in the last 5 years. My dental coverage used to be $1000 per person per year. Now its $600 with a 40% copay.

    Cons

    Worst management team I ever worked for. (Yellow) There is no accountability from the top to the bottom of the work force. You can work hard or do nothing but clock in and out. Nobody cares, management or labor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More meet and greets (like fedex does) instead of paying to put your drivers up in a hotel room after only driving 340 miles. Stop squandering the money from all the employee concessions from the last 5 years. Start investing back into the company. ie towmotors, tractors, trailers. fixing the buildings & repaving the yards would be a good start.

    Pros

    Union job makes things easier
    work seven hours get paid for eight
    just do your job and no hassles at all

    Cons

    being union means having to start at the bottom of seniority and work up
    this is not an easy challenge and the guys at the top do not help
    It maybe a union on the outside, but on the inside it is all for one at the top

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quit
    you will never win

    Current Employee - Road Driver/Line Haul in San Bernardino, CA

    I have been working at YRC Worldwide full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay even though they cut 15% of it. Pay is still better than most OTR carriers. Free benefits for the whole family and they are good benefits. Home every night, relaxed work atmosphere, nice people.

    Cons

    Pay cut and pension freeze. Being on call until you get enough seniority for a bid run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop scaring your workers into voting down a raise and pension.
