    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

    I have been working at YRC Worldwide full-time for 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.

    Customer Service

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Yellow 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 ManagementAdvice

    Roadway...go back in time and do not merge with Yellow!
