Customer Service Coordinator (Current Employee) – BC – 19 June 2017
Overall not a bad company to work for however some of the management is questionable. They like to play favorites and you are not entitled to make decisions for yourself. It is a corporation so "you have shareholders to answer to".
Commercial transport mechanic (Current Employee) – Delta/Langley bc – 13 June 2017
I've enjoyed the opportunity Ryder has given me to progress in my career and learn everyday. It has given me life experiences and learned to deal with everyday problems that arise and find a solution to ensure content customers.

Heavy Duty Mechanic - Journeyman (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 19 April 2017
this company does give technical documentation for support. I give management a bad review. Things are promised but never done. rules are up to the whims of the manager in charge. Its the biggest joke of a company I've ever worked for. I do not recommend any one trying to seriously looking in to a career with ryder. every second of you day is micro managed. no respect is given for hard work. your reward for working hard is being expected to work even harder the next day.
bad management. planning for 120% out put at all times.
Material Handler (Current Employee) – London, ON – 8 April 2017
Lower than average wages , unprofessional management and petty supervisors who think they're amazing but they don't know anything and low morale .. brag about their a Fortune 500 company but they're only that way from ripping off their employees. They don't put any effort or care into their business.
I wouldn't recommend working for them to anyone
Awful management and supervisors, lack of knowledge, lack of care, very unprofessional
Shop Supervisor (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 12 March 2017
Beware truck mechanics .low pay everywhere else starts at higher wages .this company wants to run the shop like a factory . Not good place for a good mechanic . I was there for 10 years and best day of my life is when I left
Delivery Representative (Current Employee) – Delta, BC – 12 March 2017
A typical day at work starts with picking up a pre-loaded van and the paperwork, then delivering orders to customers throughout different regions of the Fraser Valley.
I've learned about computerized warehousing and inventory systems as well as the pros and cons concerning computerized routing. I've also learned more about problem solving and presenting potential solutions to upper management for their approval.
We now have a very supportive Logistics Manager who seems very interested in fine tuning the many aspects of the operation so that it runs well and he believes in empowering people to act proactively instead of being reactive.
I no longer see much of the workplace culture as I'm not in the warehouse very much, but from what I do see, everyone seems to get along reasonably well.
The hardest part of the job are the long hours that happen from time to time or driving in inclement weather.
The most enjoyable part of the job for me is going out to the stores and meeting the people I deal with. I have developed a great rapport with them.
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Alberta – 12 March 2017
Management plays games with its employees. They'll lie straight to your face and then when you turn around they stab you in the back. There is a serious favoritism problem with the management in Alberta. They say they will train but never do. You are lost in the shuffle.
Condidential (Current Employee) – Kitchener-Waterloo, ON – 3 March 2017
I worked for 8 years at ryder overall its good but unfortunatly the opertunities within there are not much and its hard to grow within. The salaries if you want money you gotta be a perfect employee no mistakes no problem. Dont go against polacies and dont give your opinion as they will put you in your place .
If you chose to work at ryder if your at the bottom of the food chain dont think you will move up.
Shop Supervisor (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 January 2017
I have worked with Ryder for almost 5 years now, I have loved my job from day one and still love it today. As a female in this male dominate industry I could not ask for a better company to be with, I have strong supporting managers and the drive to move up in the company with them.
