    Pros

    Great Teamster work rules thru Master Freight Agreement. Long Standing Company.

    Cons

    Unfortunately during the last big recession this company hit the company's employees hard with insurance, pension and wage reductions that they are still digging out from.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize yourselves. Investigate to see which current and old Company Name resonate with the current population and then pick the top name that is recognized for the company and leave it alone there. This last name changed to YRC killed so much business.

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

    Pros

    - Most folks at YRC are honest, hard working, and try their best.
    - HQ office operations group seems to be well-tenured and knowledgeable.
    - "Employees Club" puts together lunches, happy hours, and a nice Christmas Party at the end of the year. Makes work a little more sociable than normal, which is nice.
    - The average workday is mostly low in stress with friendly and flexible middle management.
    - Nice cafeteria and a small gym on site, and a few nice outdoor areas for walking.
    - Pay doesn't seem high by any means, but average and adequate come to mind to describe it; which isn't that bad.

    Cons

    - The financially motivated job cutting and layoffs. It's one thing to have a policy of laying off continuously poor performers and replacing them. But, when a company unexpectedly lays off people with no replacement after a bad quarter or two in terms of revenue, it makes you feel like things are unstable, which seems to scare away young, talented individuals, who then just use their job as a short-term stepping stone.
    - People who have been with the company for many years tend to have a negative view of the current company (lots of "how it used to be good..." stories), which is also somewhat discouraging to new comers.
    - Company leadership seems to be reactive toward competitors rather than coming up with "our gameplan" and sticking with it.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and lead more from the top down. Be honest with employees, admit to problems, and come up with plans to fix them. Encourage middle management to take ownership in their areas, so that direction will be given from the top down. Right now, it seems like we are just a wandering company, trying to replicate what competitors are doing, rather than coming up with our own plan and identity. Keep slowly bringing back benefits programs. And, work to balance budget in a more stable way to promote growth rather than cutting. Employees seem tired of the excuses; fuel cost is too low or freight is too competitive of an industry. Just come up with a growth plan and stick with it already! Stop wandering!
