Roadway Express / Terrible experience

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

My husband has worked for Roadway for 9 years.He was transferred to another terminal and we spent a great deal of money relocating.6 weeks later they laid him off.The union does not protect the employees and the labor practices of this company are horrible.There is absolutely no job stability or certainty working for these people.I hate Roadway. Since Yellow bought the company it is WORSE.

You do not want to work for these idiots unless you want a 1000% stress level.Roadway=BADWAY!!! We are now in great financial stress because of this.

How can you relocate an employee 400 miles and then lay them off after 6 weeks?? UNFAIR!!!

    As a former employee of Roadway Express I can sympathize with Cyrill.I gave 15 yrs of my life to
    Roadway and my reward was getting layed off every holiday that rolled around.My boss said he
    was told to lay someone off and since I was the junior man he had no choice, yet after the holidays
    are over I find out every driver at my terminal made a lot of overtime.Certainly not fair and the
    union did nothing to investigate these allegations.It's been 3 years since I left terminal 710 in
    Daytona Bch.Fla and it was the best move I ever made.So to all who read this there is life after
    Roadway Express and the teamsters so don't be afraid to make that move, you won't regret it.
