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

Pros

Good rapport with counterparts and subordinates, however, upper management is more interested in promoting their own agendas as opposed to benefitting the company.

Cons

Upper management cannot be trusted. Complete lack of communication, compulsory unpaid weekend overtime for salaried employees. NO chance for advancement, unless you're a member of the "boys club." Lack of diversity and inclusion, although it is denied naturally. Complete disdain and disrespect for the hourly union workers.

Advice to Management

From the Area Manager level on up, you need to fire and replace every one of these people. They have no regard whatsoever for the Company. This includes your tyrannical HR manager who is not only aware of what's going on, but a participant. They lie, they abuse subordinates, and in the case of some shift managers, they have inappropriate relationships with the hourly employees and fire those who find out about it. When this information is passed along to the HR Manager, he quietly dismisses it and does nothing about it. Someone needs to "police the police" as these people are completely unprofessional.

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

    Pros

    a check.. but it always different each week as the manager that you had for that week would pay you what they wanted.

    Cons

    Management lies to you about what you get paid. They tell you that this contract pays this but when you get your check you are paid much less then what they told you. The contracts end abruptly and you are out a job. They have their favorite drivers and they are the ones that make the money. Benefits are terrible.. they change their vacation policy all the time so you never get to take it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your drivers.. stand in their shoes and see how you like being lied to all the time. Remember.. what comes around goes around and what you are doing to the drivers will be done to you one day.. !!!

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

    Pros

    Good coworkers, can be flexible, employee events which keep morale up in a not so happy company.

    Cons

    Ancient company, use of old software and old business techniques, management is sketchy. People in high places do not know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Spend the money and update the technology within the company. Workers will appreciate it.
