A good college student job
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Joliet, ILAugust 29, 2016
Each day I would load and unload freight for four hours a night, which worked perfectly with school during the day. The co-workers are great people once you warm up to them. Management on the other hand has a lot of room for improvement. The best part of the job was the friendships I made there, the hardest part of the job is learning the different tricks on how to move special freight. Aside from management another struggle was that there are no raises for part-time employees and also a union membership with the Teamsters that doesn't provide many benefits for part-time members.

If you're going to be in transportation USF Holland was one of the best places to work. Really good pay for a job well done, benefits were really good. Work/life balance was a priority.

very fast paced environment
Terminal Manager (Former Employee) –  Tomah, WIMay 27, 2016
Typical day was fast paced. I learned how to manage employees in this situation. Management was fair and consistent. Co-workers worked hard to get the job done. Hardest part of the job was keeping production running in an undersized warehouse. The people were the most enjoyable part of the job.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
No scheduled lunches.

stay away !
Management Assistant (Former Employee) –  Knoxville, TNMay 7, 2016
poor management- high turnover in management. None of the managers want to fix the issues. No opportunity for advancement. Poor working conditions, insurance is average, difficult personalities to work with- again management does nothing to fix issues. Worst trucking company I have ever worked for-outdated computer systems-horrible to work with. Overworked and unappreciated
Pros
none
Cons
poor management

Good place to work
LINE DRIVER (Former Employee) –  Sacramento, CASeptember 15, 2016
My supervisor was probably the best man that I ever worked under. He was always fair, and if there was ever a problem he would go to bat for you.
However the terminal manager at that facility was a joke! I really don't know how he acquired the position.
In all it was a good place to work despite that fault. Long hours, but the money was pretty good.

Pays well but I can't say it's a good place to work for
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIMay 3, 2016
Job Work/Life Balance:

A standard work day is 10 hours a day - no biggie, but the start times aren't great. If you are working the Outbound then typically your start time is 1pm until done which is generally 11pm. If you're on Inbound then your start time is 3am and goes until 1pm. You will be required to work Saturday's (rotating like every 5-7 weeks for 3-5hrs)

A standard work week is 50-60 hours. It really depends on the terminal and how well its functioning and most importantly the weather.

Compensation/Benefits:

A normal raise is 2.5% annually. You're raises are determined by the terminal's performance as a whole. You might be a rock star on the outbound shift but your inbound could be terrible, thus effecting everyone's raise. It stinks but once you're working there you learn to understand it's a team job.

Job Security/Advancement:

Well job security requires a two part answer.

1) It's pretty rare for an operations supervisor to be fired. So that is good job security.
2) The company that owns USF Holland, YRCW (Yellow) is bankrupt. Seriously bankrupt, like over 1 BILLION dollars bankrupt. Google it. 2019 the doors will likely be closed on a lot of terminals.

So if you need a job now to build some management experience, and get some serious exposure to the transportation world it would be a short term opportunity. I wouldn't plan on retiring from there though.

As far as advancement, there are a lot of opportunities if you are willing to relocate. There are lots of opportunities at the main office in Holland, Michigan. Also, there is a pretty
  more... substantial amount of turnover amongst the Supervisors/Managers so there are always opportunities to move up, if you're willing to relocate.

Management:

There's some good ones and bad ones. I'd say most the upper management at corporate are out of touch with the pulse of the company. I think they know quite a bit based off numbers on paper but it might have been 20 years since one of them step foot in a real terminal.

Job Culture:

I've never worked at more dysfunctional, negative, pathetic company in my entire life. The drivers are Union Teamsters. Good for them, bad for the company. The union has a lot of power and uses it wisely. There are no standards for productivity, absenteeism, or accountability. The union runs the show. There is always an "US vs THEM" attitude.

Overall:

If you want $50k annually and willing to sacrifice your life M-F it's not a terrible gig. It will be the most stressful place you have ever worked. The job isn't too hard but it's the work force surrounding you that make's it difficult.

Dock to driver program
DOCK TO DRIVER (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJuly 1, 2016
They will tempt you in with good pay, and getting you a CDL. You will get a CDL within 6 months. What they don't tell you is that its a minimum of 2 years before you even get a route. The only seat you will be in, is a forklift, working a minimum of 55 hours a week. Its miserable hot in Summer, freezing cold in winter. definitely not worth it! DO NOT sign the contract with them.
Pros
Pay and getting CDL
Cons
No driving trucks for average of 2 years
