Called the HQ in Kansas this week and asked if they were hiring drivers in Indiana and other locations. They said yes!!!
Topics regarding layoffs at YRC Worldwide Inc.
It fell on seemingly unconcerned ears but I've told my direct work group at YRC on several occasions going back many years that if for some reason a major economic downturn were to occur we would be in big trouble. When a company carries this kind of... — read more
The drop in bills as a percentage should correlate directly with the percentage of workers placed on layoff. Yrc freight has not even began to layoff the amount of people needed to match current freight levels. Do it. Do it now!
This was inevitable when they merged roadway and yellow. Roadway was always profitable and now they are going under. They sold all the good equipment and got rid of the better roadway higher ups and kept all of the yellow flunkies
Get rid of people that make the company ,but keep all the upper management that bleeds the company dry
Every freight company in America is laying off right now. The volume just is not there. And workers are stressed out about the virus. So there calling in sick or just not showing up for work.
P&D drivers, dock men and supervisors laid off. Welcome to Covid-19.
No one has been laid off in Oklahoma City. About 10 casuals are not being called in, but technically that is not laying them off. Casual means to occur by chance and they are not guaranteed work even if they do have a set schedule. YOU CAN'T LAYOFF A... — read more
what's with all this talk about YRC Worldwide going bankrupt with the current Covid-19 shutdown. Any news on this?
Why is YRC Freight laying off people while simultaneously posting job openings for the same positions as some of those who were laid off?!?!!? Can somebody please explain the logic behind this?
23 Linehaul drivers, several supervisors, dock workers, and P&D drivers were laid off last Friday in Nashville. I was one of them.
This is not good. Everyone is suffering.
Transferring/cutting positions in the Urbandale, IA customer service/sales support/3pl support center. People are being told they are moving the positions to Kansas City home office. Those in the roles are being told they are converting to customer... — read more

Do you think there may be small/medium/large YRC Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?

Heard 68 AEs let go
Do you predict that there will be YRC Layoffs in 2019?
Heard from a few drivers that YRC's Dallas distribution center eliminated about 600 positions last month. Company offered to transfer any willing drivers to one of their new DCs in other cities. Don't know if any of YRC's other DCs have eliminated... — read more
I used to work at 511 barn. 24 years and I quit because Yellow ruined it all. I am now in a new field making more money and love what Im doing. I really do hope yrc goes out of business... it is coming.. taking longer than I thought it was gonna take
It'd be great if someone is able to post any info (rumor?) on possible layoffs or job cuts in Overland Park.
YRC still laying people off..they tend to layoff in small numbers each month to keep the news on the down low. No raises/cost of living in years for people who have stood by the company in good & bad times…sad! — read more
Things are not improving - rumors are flying - and we might see job cuts in Overland Park.
At least 15 were laid off on October 27, 2016 at the Overland Park office. I was grabbed about four hours before the earnings call. They gave a dismal severance package. After the market closed that day, the company held it's 3Q earnings call. Shares... — read more
What is the likelihood of YRC layoffs in Overland Park in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
It was horrible, and it'll be even worse
YRC Freight plans, let's call them serious plans, to close a St. Louis truck terminal as part of a larger reorg and plans to permanently lay off almost 500 workers. Maybe...
This is just one more co trying to destroy the retirements of its employees. This is a domino effect, just wait and see what happens to the erisa laws. Workers today will need to get together to stop this killing of American job benefits.
Over 500 were let go earlier this year - 2014 will probably be even worse.
Is YRC is a union company?
