Overall Reviews at YRC Freight

Truck Driver | Mount Vernon, NY | Oct 2, 2019
No recreaction room just a driver room
Job is Organized with there pick up and delivery. problem would be the seniority doesn't allow any over time to develop for a new driver coming in.The management may force unattractive position on new driver that may led up to that driver wanting to resigning
Trainer | Chicago Heights, IL | Nov 22, 2019
I am thankfull for my years and experies i gain from YRC CORP.
YRC was a very productive company .It was a company that was fast pace ,you always had to be aware or your work area for safety reason .I was one of the crew members that was selected to help with safety traing and new ideas .what I love the most about my 26 years of services is you be come one big family .later on in my years of services I was also selected for new employees training and with my knowledge of haze material training to teach this as well.In moving forward I would love to take my knowledge and share with other companies .
Regional Coordinator | Overland Park, KS | Nov 19, 2019
Would rehire if given the opportunity
YRC was a great place to work. The culture and people are amazing. My personal management always had respect for me as a professional and trusted me. The culture is very family oriented and we all really felt like a family. When issues arose, we all worked together to solve the problem. I can't say enough about how much I loved my 15 years at YRC and will miss it and the people a lot. I was involved in a reduction in force with a layoff on November 6, 2019
Customer Service Representative | Taylor, MI | Apr 25, 2020
Company out for their selves
So much drama and poor management/admin staff. Trust no one. They say one thing and do another. Plays favoritism and do things to benefit themselves instead of what should be done
Dock Worker | Bloomington, CA | Dec 16, 2019
Do not recommend
The environment at YRC Freight is very hostile. Lots of hostility between union members. A large divide between senior employees and junior employees. There is no real order within this company. Management is very dysfunctional and disrespectful towards employees. The only perk is the benefits-you don’t pay for them.
Shop Supervisor | Nashville, TN | Dec 10, 2019
Great benefits
Good people, job challenging, directly involved in new changes! Schedule is the most challenging of all of but there are certifications and time to study for classes if you have good time management skills! And Yes, I would go back!
Safety Manager | Corpus Christi, TX | Jan 12, 2020
Good company , needs management overhaul
Management not trained for the challenge, experienced workers overcome all challenges at this unionized facilities on their own. Union workers won’t comply with SOPs.
Dock Worker | Richfield, OH | Feb 17, 2020
Not good bad management
Bunch of lazy union workers looking for free money people dont help others some do and alot dont work environment it hot summer and freezing in winter its dirty u breathe all of it in
Customer Service Representative | Urbandale, IA | Feb 13, 2020
Don't trust management
Terrible company to work for Values production over quality Terrible management Not organized Doesn't value team members No work life balance No chance to grow
Forklift Operator | St. Louis, MO | Aug 20, 2019
I absolutely loved working at YRC as a forklift operator,
YRC has many shift option and great pay with automatic overtime pay for working anything or 8 hours in a given shift. Not over 40 hours for the week but for the day. Once you complete 30 day probation period you are inducted into the teamsters union. All benefits are paid for at no cost to you. All the employees are very helpful and will share thier wisdom and training. Management is very safety conscious, want you to succeed and encourage you to build up your skill set. There are some inconsistencies on do’s and don’ts during your probation period.

Questions And Answers about YRC Freight

On average, how many hours do you work a day at YRC Freight?
Asked Oct 5, 2016
65 hours week
Answered Jul 1, 2019
10 hour most of the time
Answered Feb 15, 2019
What is the work environment and culture like at YRC Freight?
Asked Jun 18, 2016
Like all trucking companies management has no clue about the realities a daily driver faces - obviously because they do not have commercial driver's licenses - and they were never drivers - typical of the industry. Being a Teamsters shop there are various clicks within the drivers personnel. There are a lot of two-faced turncoat drivers that will be nice to your face and talk nonsense behind your back don't try to be liked by everyone be yourself and you will get along ok.
Answered Aug 18, 2018
Working in Glenmont NY you will rot on the dock for years before you get a day shift. Job will destroy your life. Stay away !

If you were in charge, what would you do to make YRC Freight a better place to work?
Asked Nov 5, 2019
Coordinate better
Answered May 30, 2020
Focus more on employee retention rather than getting more clients which they end up losing because they can't retain their employees.
Answered May 28, 2020
Is there a dress code
Asked Nov 16, 2016
For corporate employees, the general dress code is business casual. This means you are able to be comfortable but look professional. Jeans are acceptable as long as they are professional look. For workers within the terminal, casual wear is also acceptable in most location. It is acceptable to wear jeans, t-shirt and closed toe shoes in the terminal. Clothing should reflect the weather and be suitable for your specific position.
Answered Oct 3, 2018
Salt Lake City terminal number 881 you're expected to dress neat clean and professional if you wear your own clothes or you have the option of wearing second-rate low-grade company uniforms which they service every week for you I prefer my own work gear.
Answered Aug 18, 2018
How would you describe the pace of work at YRC Freight?
Asked Oct 5, 2016
Well I've been a Shortline driver terminal 881 Salt Lake City Utah for 10 months this week - and there are actually two different levels of effort that I see. The guys that have been there 10 20 30 years work at a very slow and steady pace - do the absolute bare minimum - and don't exhibit much hustle - and no sense of urgency. The newer drivers those who have been there a year or two or maybe three - Hustle - and for the most part do whatever they can do to get it done. But that's just because they came with Hustle from their previous job - and believe it's the way to do things. But the generational older Teamsters guys who've been there for decades - figured out how to work slow and easy and keep their job, of course protected by the Teamsters Union.
