    I have been working at Ryder System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The starting wage is decent. There is an emphasis on customer service. The company has an excellent tuition reimbursement program.

    Cons

    The company pays half-time rather than time and a half for overtime, which is mandatory at times. Human resources is very lax about replying to people and often their replies are not truthful. There seems to be discrimination towards people who require FMLA. Raises are extremely minimal and amount to mere cents, even if you get the maximum raise. There seem to be no genuine opportunities for professional growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay closer attention to what goes on outside of your corporate offices. People are not happy and I suspect that some of the things that go on border on illegal. Provide people in the field opportunities to develop professionally and do things to foster employee loyalty.

    I have been working at Ryder System full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ryder Inc. is a fairly good place to work albeit stressful for the amount of people employed and the constant workload to complete the assignment,

    Cons

    Overworked for the amount of workload, Constant pressure and small pay increases.

    When overtime is allowed to complete assignments for Ryder's benefit, Overtime is computed as 'Chinese' Overtime where the more total hours (including OT hours) worked lowers Lowers the $/hr.

    ie., Base Salary per 40 hr week is 600 (which = $15 per/hr). If I work 10 hrs OT then, 10 hours should be computed as 600 + (10 x 22.50 = 225 OT) = $825. Instead, Ryder computes the base hourly rate it as: 50 hours worked for the 600, therefore, the $/hr is computed as 600/50 = 12 $/hr. OT is then 12 $/hr (10 hrs x 10 OT hours = $120 OT = 600 Base is $720. Employee is cheated by $105 on this small Base Salary. In violation of FSLA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Correct Overtime computation to comply with FSLA before you get caught and fined treble amounts and back 5 years per person company wide.

    Former Employee - Account Lead in Novi, MI (US)

    I worked at Ryder System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary, Benefits, Co-workers are friendly. It is a clean, safe, environment. One can learn a lot about logistics in a short amount a time.

    Cons

    There is really no room for advancement.. The hours can change at the drop of a hat for some departments so there is no work/life balance. People who take their lunches and breaks are looked down upon. High turnover, no training systems or manuals in place, high pressure environment There is no open door policy. If you do not agree with management and the policies being made, then you are shunned, and once you are shunned they will work against you until you leave or they find a way to fire you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to actually listen to the employees and care about employee morale. Pay all salary employees real overtime. Treat your employees as if you would want to be treated. Get rid of the favoritism. There are great people that work at Ryder. Please do not continue to overwork them.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, great people to work with most of the time, company is understanding for family issues or short lead for time off

    Cons

    Management has favorites. You have to play the game and drink the cool aid to move up. If you are not a minority or woman you will not move up. If you are not a yes man you will not move up. Management spends all days in meetings and then wonders why nothing is accomplished. A lot of buzz words are used but are not actually followed: LEAN

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of surrounding your self with yes men, work with those with talent. There will continue to be a revolving door of people until there is a fair opportunity. The most valuable resource in any company is your employees.
