    Around these parts YRC is still a damn good job. (Right to work for less state)You have your health benefits paid by the company. The health/dental/vision insurance is excellent. The company has resumed a partial contribution to our new retirement fund. The information we have been receiving in our pre-shift meetings seems positive. The YRC national operating ratio was in the black according to the numbers we were given. Bill count is up. They are running adds for new employment here in Salt Lake City for casual line drivers. They are also looking to hire combo drivers in Rock Springs Wyoming, Pocatello Idaho, Cedar City Utah. These terminals are satellites of the Salt Lake break bulk. Now as for long term.....We are talking trucking here. A company can be just fine one day and broke the next. They say someone is gong to take a big fall and we will lose one of the major players in the ltl market. Who this will be is anyone's guess. As far as I can tell, the other companies failed to get it done and put YRC under.

    Made a good Living at RDWY/YRC and was able to retiree. If thats what your asking then the answer is yes. In my Career which expanded 13 closed companies.....it was the worse company I ever worked for. Never had a non union job so can't say how bad it really was. Ones perspective probably depends on where ya came from.

    It all depends how you perceive things, driver. Don't worry about how others see it. What matters is how you see it. Sometimes it can be hard making tough decisions, but what we have in common is we all learn something new everyday as time goes on.

    Local 603??? You meant 63 right? If there ain't nothing else on your plate then give it a try, what's the harm? but if you got something else lined up that you can make a career with move on.
