  • Mgt could have got a lot more out of its employees if they actually set the tone. Some Mgs did, but a lot didnt.

What I like about the company

It was a fun job to go to. Nothing personally stands out as far as experiences go.

What I dislike about the company

Didn't really disprove of anything. Policies are policies some are fine others we didn't care for.

Suggestions for improvement

  • It's too late, and that's sad.

What I like about the company

The only reason someone would remain at this company is because of the vacation they've accrued or they are close to retirement.

What I dislike about the company

The former executive team destroyed the company. It's a shame, but it's impossible for this company to continue to survive. It may be 2 years or 5 years, but it's impossible.

Company Culture

After 6 years, they have yet to develop one.

Support from management

Senior leadership was oblivious what was going on at the local levels. Or, just didn't care.

Teamwork

Zero.

Overall compensation for your work

If you were a good employee and advised them you had another opportunity somewhere else they would typically overpay to retain you. This typically didn't work well.

Work-Life Balance

Mid to upper management work 7 days per week. I regularly worked while on vacation.

Company Image

Joke of the industry.

Job Security

It's a miracle they've survived this long.

Workplace Safety

Worst equipment in the industry. It's documented in their CSA scores.

Challenging Work

Sure. Trying to motivate the unmotivated is a challenge. And trying to retain the few strong performers left was always difficult. Particularly when you knew they were better off leaving.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Unfortunately, I think it's far to late.

What I like about the company

In hindsight, nothing. I took a substantial pay cut when I left. 2 years later, I'm making more then I ever did at YRC.

What I dislike about the company

The negativity.

Company Culture

I think YRC has some great ideas but the HR department needs to keep an eye on the way emlpoyees are treated at this terminal.

Support from management

Respect was non-existent. Management had little problem solving success.

Teamwork

Teamwork was difficult because the union was always trying to work less and we tried to make them work more. Always tension around the terminal.

Internal Communication

Communication was poor because there was more screaming during a crisis than there was problem solving.

Gender Equality

They will hire anyone and everyone it treated equally poor.

Overall compensation for your work

Benefits are good but if you compare your salary to the amount of hours you work you find it's only a little more than a general laborer would make.

Office / Work Environment

If you wanr a family or a life outside work you do not want to work at this terminal. Hours are terrible and you have to work a minimum 50 hours per week....most days with no lunch.

Environmental Friendliness

I think the corporate office has good ideas but they are not followed locally.

Work-Life Balance

As mentioned before, if you want a life then you don't want to work here.

Challenging Work

There are some times that you feel good about what you have accomplished but there is little to no recognition at the local level.

Inclusive / Diverse

Screaming and threats are parts of the local culture.....ideas are not well received.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Human resources should observe how the employees are treated and understand most people have meaningful lives outside work.

What I like about the company

The benefits were better tgan average.

What I dislike about the company

Corporate has little control in regards to treating employees with respect.
You are expected to work a minimum of fifty hours oer week and you will find they pressure you to work on your days off.
