    I have been working at YRC Freight full-time

    Pros

    Decent compensation and good insurance.

    Cons

    The absolute WORST work environment i've ever encountered. These Teamsters are a step above anything i've ever been involved with. The workers can be tough to manage with little support from upper management. Very hostile work environment at times between Union/Management. The work ethic of the teamsters is practically non-existent. There are so many "gray" areas it's unbelievable. The days/hours of work are tough to manage as well. (4) 12 hours shifts per week with a guarantee of 1 weekend day, sometimes 2.

    Advice to Management

    Dissolve the company and start fresh. No, really, that was a legitimate suggestion. The atmosphere here is far beyond repairable. The company decides to implement operational changes every 3-4 years solely to keep work out of certain terminals because these guys are unmanageable.

    Pros

    They hired me. This is the only pro.

    Cons

    Management is dysfunctional at best, absolutely 0 HR, company prides itself in technology all the while having consistant tech issues including but not limited to the entire company not having a functional email system for 4 months and counting. The company forces overtime on employees to try to fix their own management mistakes while never even addressing the email issue that has caused extreme stress to all employees as well ad the loss of business it has caused. Daily strains on all employees are burying this company.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your systems, treat employees like they matter, without them you have nothing.
