    I worked at Ryder System full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Coworkers are great and considered as family. Lots of internal training at every level for almost everything. Promotions within company Good Benefits and insurance Pay is not too bad for all things considered

    Cons

    Service Managers don't all treat their mechanics right and don't take care of them, only care about their own numbers for their bonus Management not always trained properly Don't take care of the long time seniority mechanics Fire too many good long time mechanics and drivers for stupid things that usually come from improper/lack of training

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of the mechanics which are the heart & soul of this company, don't be so quick to terminate over things that could fixed and do more family fun events for shop employees and their families

    B.U. upper management do things to benefit them. Lower mgt follow suit. Also bogus safety rules and favoritism in the work place.

    Advice to Management

    B.U management should be watched. Take care of your technicians

    I have been working at Ryder System full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Average pay For Diesel Technicians -Awesome training program. -Overtime

    Cons

    -Micro managing -There is no advancement opportunities for Technicians unless they have a degree. You can be there for 20+ years and you apply for a supervisor position you will not get it. An average Jo with a piece of paper that has no experience on Tractor Trailers will get it before anyone. Witnessed first hand this experience. -Bad employee Moral.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your Technicians. Give them something to look forward to in their careers and they will take of you.

    I worked at Ryder System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The hours are set for the most part and you are paid an hourly wage.

    Cons

    Sometimes the managers dont know what they are doing. It was hard to get into the required classes to move up.

    Advice to Management

    You have good workers, get them the training they need.

    I have been working at Ryder System full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    they offer great benefits, great pay. very safety oriented. they offer some sort of tuition assistance, and will contribute to your 401k even if you dont. awesome vacation time as well.

    Cons

    the only real con is that they do not have a tool allowance program, but at the competitive rates they pay it still works out. tuition reimbursement does not seem to be easily attainable for a general education, seems they only help out with courses directly related to your field of business and must be approved before you enroll in a course.

    Advice to Management

    great job, only recommendation from me would be to be more flexible with the tuition assistance as it benefits both the employee and the company once the employee has completed a degree.
