    Pros

    Ability to learn a lot about the field.

    Cons

    Management lacks consistency and honesty. Was terminated after being told I broke company policy, although nothing was mentioned about it in the handbook. Management says they want to help motivate employees but they do not ask for suggestions or provide opportunity for feedback about the workplace. Suggestion box in the office was taken down.

    Advice to Management

    Work with employees more instead of making changes and not including them in the process until it's completed. Too much behind the scenes stuff when there are less than 20 people in the office.

    Pros

    Work with great people. Flexible schedule and work from home available.

    Cons

    No leadership from IT from local management through C-level. Get hung out to dry when projects have issues, but no support when requested

    I worked at Ryder System full-time

    Pros

    Good place to young college grads to start to get sound experience in business fundamentals and exposure to other industries (work there a few years and get out). Overall good people and safety comes first.
    Metric based scoring is good and processed based, but is emphasized too much .

    Cons

    Where do I start?
    Executive leadership does not provide the IT tools and manpower resources to get the job done in the Field. Expectations are "get it done with what you got!" We don't care if you have 3 Technician openings that you can't get filled...that's your problem.
    Too much emphasis on metrics/scorecards!
    High turnover in the maintenance ranks, not necessarily due to pay, but because of the poor IT, metrics, paperwork, and sense of hopelessness in doing all that is asked and required.
    Benefits have been cut over the years and are now "mediocre."
    No loyalty from senior management, and of course it cuts both ways, as there's no more loyalty from employees. The old guys still on the old pension program are just counting their days!

    Advice to Management

    Invest in new technology that makes it easier to do what you ask of the Field organization and take some of the daily nonsense tasks off the field maintenance team so they can service the customer.

    Good pay for industry. Benefits are decent.

    I worked at Ryder System (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent training program if used as designed.

    Cons

    You will be here much longer than you think. If the training program is used as it was designed this would be a great position to excel within a year. Unfortunately, management often uses position as a glorified secretary. Overtime pay is nonexistent. Consider all options before going into this position.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on growth and development of your employees rather than using them as a tool. You get out what you put into your employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get your compensation package in line and you will have no trouble acquiring and retaining good employees.
