    Pros

    You get paid weekly.

    Cons

    Once Yellow bought Roadway, the Roadway managers came in set the company back 40 years. Antiquated software, antiquated equipment, unaccountable/unprofessional managers, there is no customer service - its "make my numbers look good so I can look good," Yellow Freight's worst days were better than a good day at YRC. Roadway was the most unprofessional, overpaid, ignorantly arrogant, freight damaging, do-nothing, hillbilly operation I've ever seen, and we've absorbed it. Every day is a struggle and I'm embarrassed to be associated with it anymore. If I could give negative stars, I would.

    Advice to Management

    Your 1960's management style of favoritism, sexism, bullying, and shaming, are getting you sued and you're losing. You all need terminated.
