Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Burnsville, MN – October 22, 2016
This company has massive debt and is in transition of down sizing for the future which may not be in the best interest of new employees due to lack of seniority! When I first started in 2014 the company almost went bankrupt that should have been a sign for me to leave then but I stuck around hoping things would get better but it didn't. There's no pension they don't match ANYTHING 401k wise and the company is taking 15% of employees pay which they having been doing so for over 5 years plus being on call sucks. This company isn't family friendly and it'll be years until you get a Mon-Fri schedule because seniority is everything. Yrcw needs to realize that the place isn't what it use to be and get rid of those non-employee friendly rules and eat a slice of humble pie because no one wants to be there.
Collections (Current Employee) – Cheektowaga, NY – September 28, 2016
If you are the type of person who wants to come to work and do your job and not lollygag with the supervisors, manager or director you are treated like garbage. Staff is full of unqualified personnel and the most stuck up snotty superiors. These people are barely qualified to use an oven unsupervised let alone supervise and lead employees. Never got one bad performance review till I outspoken about the favoritism and now the entire management staff is out to make my life miserable and HR basically told me to live with it. Ask for help or assistance and the management talks out of both ends of their mouth with in minutes of your conversation. Some of the most simple minded worst human beings I have ever had the misfortune of working with. Don't expect advancements and if you want a promotion get ready to bust out the lotion. No one thinks for themselves and are too afraid to disagree with what the director thinks or says out of fear for their own job so the staff gangs up on you.
If you like being treated like garbage, just a number and having your self esteem diminished
Everything, this place needs to be burned down and rebuilt from the ground up.
Revenue Management Representative (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – September 28, 2016
The pay if you are at a non union office is poor.
Non Union employees are treated as if they are all replaceable.
Revenue Management Leadership is under qualified for their job duties.
Promotions used to require an interview now they just pass the promotion onto the person they seem to like the best.
Not one performance raise has been given. The only raise provided in my 5 years has been a cost of living raise and one time they ran a study to find that my office was under paid so they gave some people a raise others didn't.
The VP of Cash Management is a no show more often than not. When he does show he is of no help.
They single out employees they do not like or ones that do not agree with them and treat them awful.
The bonus structure is rigged and modified each month to ensure no employee maxes out. They also slow down payment posting towards end of month to ensure goals are not all met, only to post the cash at the start of the next month.
near impossible to retire from here as a non union employee, most that do have taken other jobs so its not really retirement.
I have been in collections over 10 years and have never seen an operation as bad as this is and they are a fortune 500 company.
Leadership is clueless so they dont push you very much.
Dock Worker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – September 27, 2016
Overall was a great place to work. The money was great as to the friends i made along the way. The hardest part of the job would have to be living by the phone as a percenter. This is something that everyone goes through in the begining of your career as a dock worker for YRC
Customer Service Specialist/ Logistics Support (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – September 8, 2016
This is a pretty great company. The health benefits are phenomenal and the management in the customer service department is pretty good. Lots and lots of micromanagement...with more to come but you will have higher than average starting wage. Not so many opportunities for advancement without relocating
Driver (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 5, 2016
I just started. I was to many lies . They force new hires to go work in Fort Worth or Garland after you have been hired in Dallas. The equipment is the worst. The pay is the lowest. The company is not managed right. The union has been broken. The pension has disappeared. You are forced to become on call with no set schedule or start times aortic set days off. High union dues. It takes 3 years to get to $21. While you will be doing the same job as others. You can't get overtime. You get laid off right after getting hired. It makes non sense how they run this company. It's crazy once you see how the lay out is from the inside. If you think of going to YRC.DONT DON'T DON'T. All new hires quit. After being hired now I see why. The guys are nice to bait you in. But the reality is they all greedy. The senior guys hog all the overtime, schedule, equipment. The union allows the company to do whatever, so don't count on the union. You can save the time and effort. Go to another company. You get hired as Driver, but really you will be lucky if you get to drive within 2 years. You basically hired as a dock guy working in the hot trailers, doing the all guys won't do job for 18 a hour @ 40 hours, no overtime that's 500 a week. That's a way to waste your cdl and all the endorsement
Disfunction, malicious intent to screw new hires, high union dues
