    I have been working at YRC Freight full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The salary is comparable to other companies. I enjoy the people I work with, and for. For three most part, I enjoy coming to work.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges we face are similar to other trucking companies, not having enough equipment to move freight. Long hours as a salaried employee.

    Advice to Management

    Take into account the suggestions made by employees when offered.

    I worked at YRC Freight full-time

    Pros

    fellow employees, benefits and some of the drivers.

    Cons

    Very poor Work/Life Balance, was spending more time on administrative work then in front of customers. Commission structure was constantly changing. Service as a whole was sub par, and could not get billing corrected for customer.
    Too many layers of upper management

    Advice to Management

    upper management and pricing dept should come out in the field more often to know what the challenges are.

    I have been working at YRC Freight full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Still digging out of "huge" financial holes left by former CEO. Current CEO (and mgmt.team) doing a great job of turning things around but, its taking longer than expected. Health care is 100% company paid and overtime starts after 8 hours.

    Cons

    Low starting and top rate pay due to contractual "give backs" that continue until 2019. Equipment and facilities have bared the brunt of company financial issues. LOW MORALE!

    Advice to Management

    Try to do whatever possible to lift up this once proud and prideful work force.
    Attitude is a small thing that makes a BIG difference!
