Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Gardena, CA – February 15, 2016
Depending upon your position, there are opportunities for advancement. For full time employees job security is assured and raises are yearly. Being a unionized company it has a good benefit package for its employees and retirement is from the union.
Freight biller (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – May 24, 2016
Management was great. Very fun to work with the people and the truck drivers.The hours were good and the management was very flexible and understanding if you had to go to an appointment or if you needed a day off.
A typical day would be clocking in and immediately pick up a pile of bills to be created (organized on table). Create bills of laden in system, printing them and give to the person who check them and did final submission to print out actual bill. Very well oiled machine so to speak, We all got along famously and management allowed us to order food in and eat as we worked as long as we still kept up productivity. The hardest part of my job was working until 2 in the morning and driving 2 hours to and from every day. My department was closed on Sundays and major holidays.So that was fantastic as I had a 3 year old and expecting my second child the last several months I worked . Everyone was supportive.
Non stressful atmosphere, and appreciation for job well done.
Except for late hours and long cummute, there was no cons
difficult place to work micro management from the top down created hostile work environment
Dock Worker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – September 2, 2015
My job at yellow freight consisted of punching in. After which there was generally a shift meeting where overall shift objectives were gone over. At that point you received bills of lading for the trailer you were assigned, you took bills of lading matched them to the freight aboard the trailer than using hi-los pallet jacks and related equipment you moved the freight to the trailer it was leaving on. Continue till the buzzer rings go home

Management (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – November 5, 2015
The company is very political and lacks morals. They will chew you up and spit you out when they are done with you. Expect back stabbing and people to take credit for your work without giving you reconigition.
Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 2, 2015
At this job I gain skills to be more careful and detail oriented because my job was to open mail at hospital where I would have to separate bills according to the different departments in accounting. For example, I would open mail every day separate the bills, organize checks, put them in the right envelop and go drop it off. I worked with the Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, and the Payroll department.
Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Maybrook, NY – November 13, 2014
It's a Union job in a 1/4 warehouse thats filled with forklifts amongst other things. It's very fast paced and follows your typical Union outfit. The job itself isn't to bad but it's just that everything is random. It takes two years as a full time employee to get a work schedule which means they can call ya at anytime during those two years to go in. Another plus and minus is the random overtime which helps with money problems but can alter any personal plans for that day. I knew the overall management team which were awesome guys so they made it fun. The best part is speeding on that 1/4 mile stretch on a forklift.
union, constant work, steady flow of income and more

Branch Mgr/Sales - Fort Smith & NW Arkansas (Former Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – December 18, 2012
I loved Yellow Freight !! I managed and sold for the Ft Smith, AR facility !! When Yellow bought Roadway; things were great for awhile. Upon integration to YRC, Inc.; I found it difficult as most processes/practices went to the Roadway procedures. Many Yellow personnel left the new company; and I did the same in June of 09.
Overall; I liked my time at Yellow/YRC !! Just left for another opportunity!!
seeing my customers; both external and internal; and spending time with my drivers!!
major change; a "culture" change among corporate; and field personnel...

Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – West Chester, OH – November 28, 2012
A very busy day. This is where i learned to drive a forklift and use the scanners. Management was very easy to get along with. The co-workers were also very easy to get along with. The hardest part was some of the things you had to load were very challenging but i love a challenge. The most enjoyable part was the pay.
