    Pros

    Dock Supervisors walk over ten miles a day on a 12-hour shift. You will never get fat.

    Cons

    Technology lags way behind the competition. Many OUTSTANDING co-workers busting their buns to make our company return to the top, trying mightily to make up for the no-loads that permeate our workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Invest much more heavily in Human Resources -- our people. Theory X management "grind us into dust" mentality crushes enthusiasm and breeds cynicism.

    I worked at YRC Freight full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    About the only reason right now to work for YRC would be to collect a check to pay your bills. It is that simple right now.

    Cons

    Upper management continues to make decisions which benefit themselves only. They continue to add new layers of sales management which make it tough for the field sales to do their job. More and more time is taken away from face to face sales. Spreadsheets, conference calls, webinar a, meetings etc. remain their focus. This brings no value to the customer. Long hours no raises hurdles to not pay bonus money, there is no reward for hard work here, ever. There is NO YRCFreight culture - Yellow people work their way and Roadway people work their way.....daily in fighting and no stopping.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the multiple layers of upper sales management. Simplify don't add more mud to the puddle. Focus on the basics, pick it up, move it and deliver it without smashing it and losing it. There is a fraternity that takes care of themselves only leaving the front line employees and the customers without regard.
