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

    Pros

    Ryder has employees that have been working for the company for over 15 years, 25 years and even 30 years. This is good news because that means that Ryder values their employees.

    Cons

    The transportation/ logistics industry is not doing so hot as of right now. Because of this RYDER has to make several big decisions to either down size the company or let several hand full of employees go in order to stay afloat during the down times.

    Do things the correct way, allow techs to go to the needed classes and fix the broken tools in your shops! There is a guideline for a reason!
