I worked at YRC Freight full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of room in the parking lot since less employees, the merger was a really bad idea i think.

Cons

Since merger, nothing much good has happened. Stock has been dropping since 2005 when they slowly let small groups of people go, They did not have to notify the state doing it that way, how clever of them.

Advice to Management

Reverse the merger, what a bad idea that was.

    I worked at YRC Freight (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, nice building and location. Everyone works hard to accomplish the mission with outdated and diminishing resources.

    Cons

    Big Corp - politics trump performance. Everything's been cut to the bone and now they're extracting the marrow. Be prepared to bring your own coffee maker and don't be surprised if you have to bring your own toilet paper.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck with the unions, creditors, debt and the competition.

    The wages and benefits are good. The union makes sure that management treats you with respect.

    The hours. Working in the elements. Takes a long time to get a good shift.

    Listen to the employees who do the job for the best ideas on how to improve morale and productivity.
