    Customer Service

    Customer Service (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsGreat pay when it was Roadway. Roadway listened to their employees and considered their opinions. Great local team.

    ConsYellow merger turned the customer service employees into machines that had to stick to scripts, then canned them all in favor of centralized customer service. Pay and hours reduced, company always felt unstable after merger.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRoadway...go back in time and do not merge with Yellow!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The decline of a strong company of proud employees.

    Anonymous (Current Employee) Carlisle, PA

    ProsThe pay at YRC is not at the low end of the spectrum for LTL motor freight.

    ConsPay has been slashed for labor and management. Pension--frozen. 401(k)--zero company contribution for the past 5+ years. Health benefits--continual rise of employee costs. Job security--non-existent. Advancement opportunity--slim to none. Upper management does not communicate nor ask for employee input. Reviews have not been completed for several years. This company is continually on the verge of bankruptcy yet is able to add to its already top-heavy structure of more and more highly compensated upper management positions commonly filled by cronies of those in the top positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk for and at least consider input of employees. Understand the value of motivated people working toward common goals.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I love my job, I just wish I made more.

    Super Resolver (Current Employee) Cheektowaga, NY

    ProsFriendly atmosphere, great upper managment.
    Room for advancement, but is somewhat limited.

    ConsVery low pay for what other companies offer

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork to raise pay rate for permanent employees. Everyone is hired as a temporary employee making $11.50 an hour. They hint at the idea that you will get a raise going from temporary to permanent after the 6 month wait period, but you do not get a raise. I got a promotion and am now making $12.99/hour and found out there is another company that offers $16 starting rate for the entry level position. I love my job but the pay rate is making me look for work elsewhere.
