I have been working at Ryder System full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Better than unemployment.
Very casual culture: jeans and flips type of place.
Can set your own hours.

Cons

Low starting pay.
Advancements & merit raises are far and in between. If and when you do get a raise, don't be insulted if it's only 5 to 10 cents an hour.
Rising healthcare costs due to aging and fattening staffs.

Advice to Management

Work on improving shop management nationwide. We are letting our customers down way too often. Get better quality employees by opening up the checkbook.

    I worked at Ryder System part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have yet to find one.

    Cons

    Where to start? I worked at the Beaver Dam plant for the last 4 summers before it was bought out by Ryder. It was a place I definitely could have viewed myself working at for a long time. However, Ryder took over and the company absolutely sucks! They wanted to dock my pay from $12.50/hr to $8.00/hr my fourth year there. Really? You want me to have to work for $4.50 less per hour for working 3rd shift, 7 nights a week all summer? Yea, right. Also, I was laid off because your company STILL INSISTS on hiring inmates and when I was threatened by one he kept his job and I lost mine. I know the local papers would love a story like that.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage logistics! Because you guys SUCK at it. I could run the company better in my sleep.

    I worked at Ryder System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Office Location
    The Ryder Name
    They have three nice conference rooms on the top floor

    Cons

    No leadership ( CYA & Everyone for themselves)

    Low Pay

    Health Insurance is the worst (very high deductibles)

    VP and above are the only people who have an office

    Open Office with cubicles and it's so quiet!

    Office furniture except for those three executive conference rooms is horrible...Give it away to Goodwill already

    The technology is beyond bad
