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

    Pros

    The health insurance is good, they will hire almost anyone as long as they can pass a drug test, no prior experience need to get the job.

    Cons

    11.90 starting pay, on call, being a casual (part time) employee they do not tell you that you're terminated,supervisors conduct themselves in a very unprofessional way.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to how trailers are loaded compared to speed, it will help prevent the terminal being short on equipment

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

    Pros

    They're still trucking despite taking a beating over the past ten years. They've never bounced a paycheck. It's hard to get fired. They have the most tenured workforce in the business.

    Cons

    The beating the company has taken shows at nearly every level. Advancement is very unlikely. It's difficult to manage employees that are nearly impossible to fire. Highly tenured employees are more subject to complacency and stubbornness.

    Advice to Management

    Deal with reality on reality's terms.

    I have been working at YRC Freight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company paid health insurance! Set salary increases, union benefits. I personally loved my boss but most people did not

    Cons

    Remote management - answers aren't provided fast enough. Mandatory forced OT 2 hours a day for YEARS on end with no reprieve. No room to move forward without relocating to SD or IA. Lack of consistency in answers. You are just a number to them in Customer Care Management

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to retaining your good employees and treated them well, than you have been in recruitment and new program development.
    Care about your employees.
