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

    I have been working at Ryder System (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Almost everyone I have spoken to at corporate hq has been competent as well as friendly. The individuals I have spoken to at corporate hq appear to understand that a happy and healthy work environment is a productive environment. And that the first step towards achieving that goal is accomplished through quality hiring.

    Cons

    There has been a culture of both neglect and intimidation at the Lansing location for as long as I have been with the company, even the slightest hint of dissent is often met with obstinance or even hostility. Communication with the corporate office seems to be ineffectual do to the way in which information is routed and prioritized. There is little leeway for creative problem solving as most solutions are dictated top down with little to no nuance that would suggest an intimate understanding of total effect. There seems to be a complete lack of understanding among most the on site management staff as to how to empower people in a way that extracts the most productivity from them. The current approach is in no way conducive to long term goals and is bad business.

    Advice to Management

    Must do a better job of recognizing problems before they grow this large. Periodically evaluate management staffs on a per location basis and in a hands on, non insolated manner, identifying poor managerial approach, competence etc. I believe doing so would result in net gains via retention, eliminating waste improved moral etc.
