    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 Management

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

    Pros

    The pay is excellent for the work that you do, and the company has been a leader in that industry for a very long time.

    Cons

    The job can be very demanding physically. The work schedule is mainly night work.

    Advice to Management

    Separate Yellow and Roadway, everyone hated the merger!

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Pay 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 Management

    Ask for and at least consider input of employees. Understand the value of motivated people working toward common goals.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Very low pay for what other companies offer

    Advice to Management

    Work 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.

    Pros

    Roadway's customer service was local and wonderful to work with on daily situations. The drivers were engaged with the reps and during driver meetings.

    Cons

    Not having customer service local has hinder YRC. Also mergering the sales teams together hurt the brand, people lost confidence. The bonue structure was set up where you could never make bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your customer service people, sales reps and drivers. They have their ear to the ground.
