    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at YRC Freight part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1. Union Wages. 2. Most of the dockworkers are very helpful if they see that you're trying to work hard. 3. Most of the supervisors are good at their jobs and will grant you some leeway if you work safely and quickly. 4. Plenty of loadbars, airbags, and other equipment to stabilize/block freight for transit. 5. Positive attitude of most co-workers

    Cons

    1. It's impossible to project your weekly/monthly workload so it's very difficult to budget your income. 2. Some of the inbound loads (arriving mainly from Chicago) are severely damaged due to a lack of bracing/blocking of freight and failure to supervise.

    Pros

    Benefits, pay, most drivers are down to earth & easy to work with

    Cons

    They cut non-union jobs, such as Dispatch & Office Specialist, without notice, it's called R.I.F. You lose your job before you qualify for unemployment. Unemployment goes by their own calendar, not your last job. If you were out of work for awhile, the unemployment check will be extremely low or nothing.
