Fast paced at times but for the most part it is laid back.
P&D Driver (Current Employee) – Carlstadt, NJ – June 6, 2018
The job actually isn't that bad, I've been at worst places. Of course you will be dealing with some knuckle heads, especially the guys that have been employed with YRC for a long time but you only have to deal with them in the morning when everyone is coming in for work. The other negative thing is YRC needs to invest in newer tractors because most of them are run down, and not safe. With a newer tractors my job would be sweet! Here's a quick run down in a typical day at YRC, most P&D drivers get in at 8:00am, you'll get your route, check your trailer, hook up your tractor then your out till about 6:30pm or later. I average about 5-7 deliveries and 4-6 pickups. You get two 15 minute breaks (paid) and one 30 minute break (unpaid). That's a quick run down.. believe me, it's not a stressful days work at this company.. good luck!!
Definitely get your 50+hrs a week, overtime after 8hrs, free health benefits
Very old equipment, don't get assigned tractors and the shop steward is a "little" Koo koo
