    Pros

    Decent pay and fairly good medical benefits

    Working conditions, poor upper management causing workers to constantly lose benefits, retirement and suffer pay cuts

    Learn from past poor performance and use business models of other successful freight companies to build a more profitable company and build trust among the middle management and the workforce

    I worked at YRC Freight full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, and if you like social activities outside of work.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't listen to employee recommendations and are cooking the books to make EOY look better. Laying off corporate employees to add to their numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Don't spend millions on things that don't work and are recommended against by your employees. You had a lot of intelligent people working for you, listen to them.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at YRC Freight full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pretty laid back, casual dress attire. Pay is competitive. Have the flexibility to book your own travel.

    Cons

    Very aged in every aspect from the employees to the systems. There is little to no training in place for positions. Everything moves at a very slow pace.

    Advice to Management

    Put in place a training program to set your employees up to start growing into their roles rather than having to figure it all out on their own.
