    If working for a field SCS or Dedicated account, your job is dependent upon Ryder keeping the account.

    I worked at Ryder System (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If anyone visits the Ryder Alumni Network on Facebook you'll quickly recognize that many of the old-time former employees loved their time at Ryder. Ryder was a company that valued its people and its people valued senior management and Ryder's customers. There was true employee engagement before engagement was the latest consultant buzzword. Ryder people cared about the company, our customers, each other and the communities in which we operated.

    Cons

    As one of those long-ago employees, it is disappointing to see the negative reviews posted about Ryder today. It seems the company has moved away from the values that made it a great place to work. This is not just a "everything was better in my day" rant, but a call to senior management to return the brand to its former glory and prominence.

    Advice to Management

    Tap into the network of retired and former Ryder employees who made Ryder a great place to work. While many are now retired, I am positive they would be willing to share ideas and provide suggestions -- maybe about products and systems but more importantly about engagement, communication, recognition and the other soft business skills that are the human part of creating dedicated and caring human resources.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, no day is like the one before, involved with many aspects of logistics from trucking, to storage, and usage.

    Cons

    Contracted so we are at the bottom for any incentives. Staff rotates alot so its difficult to ensure other jobs are done right so you can do your job easily.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people. Buy tech that will make our jobs easier. Pen and paper counting is more time consuming than it should be.
