    Pros

    From personal experience, I learned alot within my first few years with the company. Speaking of now and it has been 9 year later, I come to work to get my paycheck. There is nothing else I can say in this catagory.

    Cons

    HR Department at Shared Services Center is unbelieveable, they care more about their friendships than you as a employee of the company. Management and Supervisors are not knowledgeable about the departments that they currently managing. If something does not go Management way, retailation occurs not only from management, but supervisors, hr manager, hr coordinator, and even security.

    Advice to Management

    I feel there needs to be more training with the Management Team. Communication is a start. All employees should be treated fairly across the board. Why have Diversity Classes if no one has to follow them, especially MANAGEMENT at SSC??? Also, I strongly suggest that RETAILATION be reviewed upon all Managers and Supervisors. Try listening to the smaller people in the company instead of the people you put in these Manager and Supervisor positions, because they are not always RIGHT and in this case they REALLY don't know what they are doing on a daily basis.

    Pros

    You have a job in lansing, in a poor job market. The people that you work with at your level. You can have a bond with your peers. Ryder the company was a good company to work for.

    Cons

    You are managed by fear and intimidation, you are not respected for your job knowledge or the job you do. You only see the upper management if you have something go wrong you are never recognized for a job well done. If you challenge the upper management, state a fact of the way it is, disagree with anything they say or do you are labeled as uncooperative and not with the program. They do not want supervisors that can think they just want them to do whatever they say and not question there decisions. There was a survey done and 65% of the supervisor said they would leave in the next two weeks if a similar job was available to them. The upper management did nothing with the survey even though they said they would. They have you work weeks on weekend without weekends off (customer is demanding this) however, when the customer is not working and you are looking for a break from weekends the upper management will make a manadatory weekend to cover some trivial item and not compensate you for your time. If you are a strong supervisor do not apply here you will not last they only want the weak supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Do a fair a unobjectional job of research when you get a complaint at your 1 800 number. There have been many complaints to this number and the issue has just been rubberstamped or not even investigated. Just a note this is not the ranting of an irate supervisor, I was not terminated...but had to leave because the upper management had a chance to downsize when gm had their issues and they cleared the deck of older, seasoned, and higher paid supervisors and kept the weaker 'yes man' supervisors. In fact they had the opportunity to rehire many of us and for a strange reason (no jobs in lansing) we wanted and needed to come back they only gave us a token interview and hired all new!

    Pros

    Individual interaction and in some cases invaluable team work associated with labor performance.

    Cons

    Failed communication, totalitarian-type leadership styles, and inability to move up the ladder, regardless of effort.

    Advice to Management

    Increase communicative integration and interdepartmental involvement. Validate and comprehend the invaluable need for safety, including preventative maintenance to decrease potential for incident or injury.

    Pros

    The work you do and the feeling of an accomplisment when you work a problem to a solution so the customer is not affected.

    Cons

    The plant manager and the plant assistant manager. The dictatoship management style lack of support from the HR department, and from field management.

    Advice to Management

    Replace current plant leadership with a more rounded and capable staff.

    Pros

    Most of the employees are a pleasure to work with. Most of them work very hard. Clean environment.

    Cons

    Dictatorship upper management, talk down to lower level people. Upper management lies to you. HR manager cannot be trusted as the Manager Director and the Senior Logistics Manager. Many complaints from employees are not handled. Management plays favorites with certain employees.
    Many current employees are unhappy. Many have been fired unjustly. Temporary employees are treated unfairly.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the entire HR department and senior level management. Treat employees fairly and recognize their efforts.

    Pros

    Company name will look good on your resume

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, lack of processes. Low salary, no work/life balance. Bad benefits.

    Advice to Management

    The Ryder program that supports HP LATAM in Doral is run by incompetent people. This should be run by US personnel that are familiar with our customs as well as our labor and business laws instead of LATAM managers and directors who don't know anything about our culture and the way we do business here.

    Pros

    Some of the employees are a joy to work with an the overall job is not that difficult, although their system is interesting.

    Cons

    Their HR department is horrible. They are not on the same page. I was misinformed on a number of different topics and they do not care at all. Overall a very disappointing experience.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication is needed in order for employees to be on the same page. The number of times that employees were not on the same page is far too great a number.

    I have been working at Ryder System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work at the Home Depot account in McDonough, Georgia and it is a nice facility.

    Cons

    No time for family and work 7 days a week. Ryder treats supervisors poorly to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with comp pay or comp days for you management team. Work 6 to 7 days a week 90% of the time with NOTHING extra for all the time we put in. Every member of our management team is having some type of problems at home because we are ALWAYS at WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HATE IT!!!!!!
