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

    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.

    Pros

    Great experience understanding the business trends of the majorities of all industries. This also helps to understand how the global economy impacts N America and vice versa.

    Cons

    Far too much micro-management by unqualified senior management, rather than sharing a compelling vision and strategy which brings all segments together under centralized purpose. Each department seems to have goals that work against other departments, and prevents over-all growth and success.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate, and allow the giftedness, education, and experience fuel success, communicating and developing business plans that support the success of the organization. Plans are too often developed by those who have lost touch with operations, the customer, and/or the challenges facing the current business climate. Panels should be more inclusive of various departments, giving a stronger over-all perspective of the business climate

    Pros

    Some of the people were good to work with. You are forced to learn something new everyday because of the many scenarios you are put in.

    Cons

    Management, empty promises; no pay raise after a pay cut 2 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for your hard working employees and get rid of the ones that just take up space.

    Pros

    Great people in the field and operations will go out of their way to help out. Easy to recruit drivers based on pay and benefits

    Cons

    My leadership was clueless to driver recruiting. Too much traveling way over the 25 to 30 % that I was told in interview. Not enough staff to properly recruit spreads recruiters way too thin and makes us ineffective.

    Advice to Management

    If you put someone in a position of leadership, you need to make sure they have leadership experience and not just a big ego.

    Pros

    Due to upper management Greed and multiple non-truths to workforce ,union and nonunion, upper management has created a unity among all of its employees and members! As far as a nice place to work,its nice to get along with the people you come in contact every-day!

    Cons

    Well im sorry to say, most of the people, I myself come in contact with everyday consider the Teamsters to be a corrupt paper tiger that resembles nothing of what it was and what it needs to be! YRC upper management appears to be only interested in filling their own pockets and very deceptive on following through with agreements made with their hard working empl;oyees,that sacrificed to help the Powell and Roush legasys stay alive! Shame on you all!

    Advice to Management

    Finally tell the truth on your objectives! Share profits with employees! Recreate a quality work place for your employees( believe me YOU CAN AFFORD IT) so you can attract quality people for you to employ to recreate the corporate shineing star that mr. Powell and Mr. Rouse worked so hard to create! In other words quit being so Greedy!
