    Pros

    The insurance and the starting rate of pay is not bad

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Health and welfare-very good benefits. Terminal used to be place of security and comradery. Weather in NM/Albuquerque is stellar making deliveries more easily accomplished. At one time, a good place to work.

    Cons

    Micromanaging, hostile, dishonest terminal manager--Albuquerque NM. Discontinued retirement and reduced wages was a great move for YRC, but a terrible move for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do you not know or care about how many accounts have been lost, how many grievance have been filed and or that the workplace satisfaction and workforce morale has been broken down on a daily basis since you brought Jeff Cain to the Albuquerque terminal? He must have something huge on YRC for you to allow him to continue.
    Thank goodness for retirement.

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

    Pros

    None to report. Worst company I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    Terrible leadership. Unethical treatment of employees. Leadership does not make sure the right thing happens for the hard working people of this company. Communication is extremely dysfunctional. My experience was one that could have resulted in a strong lawsuit but decided it was not worth my time/resources to waste any further on this company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the unethical business practices! Dig deeper into the underhanded way that people are unexpectedly fired without your company having just cause to do so.

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

    Pros

    Pay is fair. Many of the workers try hard but are not given sufficient training. Office staff is supportive of junior managers.

    Cons

    Toxic senior management. Union environment. Dirty place to work. Dying company. No meaningful training. Old IT and old infrastructure. Zero tolerance for mistakes. Perhaps the most hostile work environment I have ever worked in. I left as quickly as I could. Horrible, miserable place. Threatened daily, very abusive. Slave hours. Now I know why they cannot keep managers. They quit!

    Advice to Management

    You lose 15 junior managers in 2 years? Maybe the problem is you, not them!

    I worked at YRC Worldwide (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Guaranteed hours and overtime, good union benefits.

    Cons

    Don't expect an actual schedule for at least 3 months. Expect to be shifting hours every day or so.

    Advice to Management

    Treat new hires with at least a little respect. It is unhealthy to have them work different schedules every other day.

    Pros

    Nothing there is nothing positive about work here,I keep seeing people posting that there is "great pay" thats a bunch of crap lol unless great pay to you is starting off at $11.90 an hour.

    Cons

    The union is sucking the life out of the company and management in turn treats the employees like trash constantly lies to them, writes up employees as much as possible. The terminal manager is a compulsive liar if you get hired do not believe that you start at $14.00 hr you do not you start at $11.90 that is a fact he with lie and do whatever he has to do to avoid telling the truth. lol you cant even ask him the color of the sky without him trying to lie about it.

    Advice to Management

    Your company will be gone within 5 years because how horrible you run it.

    Pros

    Paid once a week. Work is fast so time passes quick.

    Cons

    Not enough work time. On call 24/7. Teamsters is a requirement. Dangerous environment to be working unsafe drivers.

    Advice to Management

    Make the loads easier for the forklift drivers to get to rather than a long run. Its safe and will be more efficient.

    Advice to Management

    within a couple of years they'll be no medical care either the company is so poorly managed by the top management its not even worth giving it a try and that's a true reflection in the managers at this company hires his they have no other place to go give back the money you stole from everyone
