    I worked at YRC Freight full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary was great. Environment needed to be worked on but the place has potential.

    Cons

    Place has potential but the union environment is not helpful with what management is trying to do.

    If you want to establish a type of management once the employees are already established, start with the core, not with the leaves.

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

    Pros

    The salary is not bad. Other supervisors are good, the manager i deal with daily is pretty good.

    Cons

    The salary for 12 hr shifts 4 days a week sucks, we are not union but you are told vacations, schedules, etc will be handled just like union instead of first come first serve like normal non union company personel. The shop supervisors take all the heat for things not getting done, but are not allowed to even get the proper tools for the shop. Shop is falling apart, moral is down, got a degree that evidently will not help me go anywhere with the company. Older more exp workforce retiring and no hiring of replacements. The vacation schedule has screwed over supervisors because its not first come fitst serve.

    Advice to Management

    Give the shop supervisors more authority to get the tools and equipment needed to make the shop better. You bought brand new trucks and we dont have the diagnostic software to fix anything, nobody has been trained, instead of replacing worn broken tools they sit tagged out until they are rebuilt just to break a week later. Shop is outdated, lighting sucks, roof leaks, all around terrible environment. Allow the supers to handle those issues and allow those who succeed to move up or make more money. Some guys have made the same amount for over 30 years. Make salaried employess NOT be treated as union. When they are hired for a schedule they should get that schedule, the vacations should be first come first serve, take too long for vacations to make it around and has cost ppl the actual vacation dates they need.

    Friendly people, laid back atmosphere

    Cons

    Expect long hours with barely or below average pay. Managers don't like to listen to employee suggestions.

    Listen to the people who do the work, not just your friends. To get harder working employees pay them fairly for what they do.

    Pros

    100% Health Coverage. Paid sick and personal time.

    Cons

    Poor working conditions. Poor training program. Very poor management. Poor safety procedures. No communication between management and labor.

    Advice to Management

    Start talking to your employees. We gave back 15% of our wages + paid vacation time to help the company through the so-called hard times. A new tax break should equal a return of our hard earned wages.
