    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.
