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

    Pros

    Good technology and tools for the Weights and Inspection Coordinator position.

    Cons

    Old, outdated, and obsolete equipment in the dock. Poor training of Unionized labor. Unionized labor is not trained to work with W&I department and won't comply with change in SOPS.

    Advice to Management

    Update personnel training and obsolete equipment used in the dock. This might uplift the morals and energy of the unionized labor.

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

    Pros

    Money and benefits (THAT'S SERIOUSLY ALL). RUN RUN RUN. I have to have at least 20 words...

    Cons

    Upper management was completely horrible. You will not receive training. You'll be throw into the fire immediately and expected to survive. Everyone hates one another and the tension at the place is thick enough to cut.

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

    Pros

    Good paid benefits easy to get hired plenty of hours up to 70 week. 8 years ago one of the best companies to work for.

    Cons

    Since the merger 7 years ago everything has gone downhill. Worst morale in drivers I've ever worked with. I'm making $3 less an hour than I was told I would. And some of the worst equipment on the roads. Short on trucks and employees in every position because of pay. 90% of employees are 15 to 30 yrs employees and spend their days trying to get even for the cut and pay, hard to do your job when nobody else is doing theirs.

    Advice to Management

    Start making the employees accountable. Stop letting them sleep on the job, literally. And stop letting long time employees run the business and do whatever they want while they're not doing their job.

    Pros

    YRC Freight is really looking to improve upon itself and is investing in both its equipment and its people.

    Cons

    Can't think of any. The LTL industry is not for everyone. If you like fast paced, challenging environments, then you will enjoy working for YRC Freight.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to ensure that your employees are set up to succeed.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable co-workers. Fast paced. Good benefits due to being lumped in with the Union.

    Cons

    Pay is fair. Micro-managing. Boys club culture, especially through sales.

    Continue to bring back benefits and work with employees to promote a career minded culture again.

    Pros

    The Teamsters do their best to provide benefits and safe equipment for their Union members. The equipment is well used but generally sound.

    Cons

    YRC Freight company is on shaky financial ground. They hire a lot of new drivers and then drop them just before they are eligible for Teamsters membership.

    Get honest with your new hires.
