    I have been working at YRC Freight full-time

    Pros

    The hours are great but like any payroll department they can change from time to time depending on the process days. Depending in role you can get overtime and the pay is weekly

    Cons

    The department and the company have a lot of moving parts so sometimes the communication lapse between payroll, HR and the terminals.

    Pros

    Company is heading in a new direction and should see the new changes early this year.

    Cons

    With the company heading in a new direction you are left out of the loop a lot. Sometimes you will not know what is going on in your own operations due to information not being shared with you. Dealing with the union side of things.

    Regardless of experience this is not a job for everyone.
