    I worked at YRC Freight full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    work with disgruntled workers who do not put in their 100% let alone their 85% (-15%) and talk on their cell phones and listen to music and do not want to be bothered by dock supervisors to do work assignments while those supervisors flag down 2 or 3 people to do all the stacking work, very unorganized if you ask me, i would get jaypro loads and tire loads while a new hire gets skid loads

    Cons

    puts you in a crappy location to work at, unprofessional management that says racial slurs like the word kamala, favoritism if it was a yellow barn so if you were a roadway worker you would get work assignments that are tougher and treated more harsh with discipline with missing work, managers were rehired that retired cause nobody wants to work there anymore, nobody applying to work in these locations cause the area in general sucks to live in

    Advice to Management

    take the money and run, seems thats all this company is now, nobody in management truly cares about this company, its the titanic and i took the first lifeboat out

    Pros

    Plenty of exercise for those who enjoy walking a concrete platform for hours on end and eating their meals while doing so.

    Cons

    1980's era technology inhibits any hope for proper planning and tracking and consequently stifles an individual's ability to perform at a level that would keep up with competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Close the doors for good.

    I worked at YRC Freight full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros - unless you like being miserable and not having a life.

    Cons

    I was hired for one job, then switched to another along with being put on 12 hour swing shift at a desk you couldn't walk away from, not even to use the bathroom let alone take a lunch break (IN 12 HOURS) and nobody to cover. 90% of the current employees had nothing good to say, the entire environment was very poor putting moral in the dumps. One employee that was supposed to help train me with in the first few weeks didn't show up for the shift and no one would come in to help cover so with the very little knowledge I had, I was forced to run the show on my own for a very big, important, time sensitive job. It was enough to put someone in the nut house. 0 STARS

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees that are doing the work instead of bragging about yourself.
