Road Driver (Former Employee) – Chicago Heights, IL – January 16, 2018
AS a road driver for YRC is a great job with great benefits, The management is straight forward & by the contract,, Other than that iv'e got a lot of respect for Alena & Penny Brainbridge ,, if you meet them have way & preform your work well there is no object that you can obtain, The bad part of the job is 6 days a week at 12days or more & family time is short

Great environment to work with their client. Project was stressfree. I learnt lot of things from there.. Really helped me to grow myself. I improved my skills and leadership skills. Great culture to work with them..
Under the collective barging agreement as mentioned, we were bought in as p/t casual workers but f/t union workers. Sadly to say, the only thing I got out of was that I still remain a Teamster. The company had to much emphasis placed on hiring & firing in hiring workers weekly which created a high turnover rate
OTR Company Driver (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – January 6, 2018
YRC was a union trucking company. It has the usual benefits and drawbacks of a union operation. The pay and benefits were based on the negotiated contact and were comparable to most large trucking companies.
Overall a good place to work, with several opportunities for positions/advancement.

Sales Representative (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – January 3, 2018
The industry is dying. Most companies are using a 3rd party vendor. YRC is not even in the dome watching XPO & FedEx battle each other. Operation Manager is clueless and not helpful in the sales arena. All the drivers and dock employees are depressed.
Create work hours & territory is manageable
Management in every division is poor with poor communication
It was an extremely busy workplace but compensated well.
District Pricing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Meridian, MS – January 2, 2018
I was the District Pricing Coordinator for the Southern Region which included the states of MS, AL, FL and LA. I coordinated discount pricing programs for our customers. The terminal manager and sales reps. would negotiate the discount, submit to me and I would set up the program online to forward to our home office in Akron, OH. I was responsible for producing charts, graphs and pertinent information for District meetings. It was a very demanding workplace. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the employees from all over the country. It is amazing how you become a family.
Truck Driver (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 28, 2017
union company, great benefits, but the on call can be stressful. being at the bottom of the list make it hard to get go runs. team driving is ok, but its hard to sleep not knowing how well the other person can drive. the anytime phone calls to get to work can make it hard for family time and personal time.
Road Driver (Current Employee) – Marietta, GA – December 26, 2017
In your 30 day probation time no one wants to explain what it is that you need to do and it is frustrating.They work you to death you basically work get enough sleep to work again. I need more stability than that. Plus this is a union job which has benefits but also disadvantages. Newbies don't get benefits like veterans, a veteran can request to have your load if they want- that's basically stealing your dinner for your family and that's unfair. There are also things that veterans have just because they are veterans. I didn't like it but for others this may be just up their ally if they can get thru probation era.
If you got Hustle and are not afraid to work hard you'll be fine
Dock Worker/City Driver (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 23, 2017
Just started 2 months ago as a local city p&d driver. Got a good bid - 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. But they let me come in 2 hours early starting at 8 a.m. So I have 2 hours overtime built in every day - and most of the time - I work Beyond 6:30 pm - so I can catch an hour or so overtime at the end of my day. I average about 55 hours over 5 days Monday through Friday home every night with weekends off. And of course 100% Teamsters medical coverage - lots of other great benefits here - but again - you have to have Hustle and not be afraid to work hard. No room for slackers of cry babies in #881 Salt Lake City Utah. You got to get it done....
