Rental Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 March 2018
If your looking for a company who treats you as a number, has a sink or swim training method this is your dream job! They train you at another location then put you in the location your supposed to be and everyone does everything different. It is not a team environment! Everyone is catty and backstabbing welcome back to high school. They want you to eat,sleep,breath Ryder they don’t care that you have a family with children at home
Technician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 March 2018
Great co-workers (technicians) horrible management. Union shop. Shifts are unorganized and low seniority gets shafted (nights, graveyard or wknds). Good pay (weekly) with incentives. Facilities are old and falling apart. Can't fit longer units in the shop and close bay doors (sucks in winter). Have to fight for a bay some times or work outside. Locker room and lunch room are gross.
Inventory Control Coordinator (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 19 January 2018
Good Company, staff and co-workers Pay rates are less as compared to other competitive companies. Benefits are lesser than other companies. Lots of management and structure changes in last 2 years. Employee appreciation and internal promotion is good.
Lube Technician (Current Employee) – Concord, ON – 18 December 2017
amazing company to work for but managers, supervisors and HR representatives makes the company and work life irritating. overall, if they stop hiring university graduates to work in the industry. working at the shop will make life a lot better
ex manager (Former Employee) – London, ON – 17 November 2017
Very lazy HR person in London , never there , always says she is busy when you want to see her , and she thinks she runs the company , but she should be in rehab. Drivers all nice , but using agency drivers reflects a bad image on the customers. Too many people in management have been there too long and can't think outside of the box. Too many EGOS and internal relationships between males and the female .
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 25 October 2017
I liked the actual job I performed, and the hours were good. OT happened now and again depending on the needs of the customer. The company is however top-heavy when it comes to management. I had three bosses and five other associates that I worked with in the storehouse with. At times it was confusing as you didn't know who was actually running the show. Communication from top down was horrible. I always felt like I was being kept in the dark and felt as if the company didn't want to share anything with me. Also, the rate of pay for this particular place I worked at were far, far below the industry average for this type of job. I also felt that the benefit package was a little 'cheap' as if Ryder found the cheapest benefit plan that they could for their employees. I actually had better coverage when I worked a full-time retail job!!
The workplace culture is weak and from my experience it was made clear to me that employees with any sort of professional opinion, either positive or negative where quickly shown the door. No associate coaching or professional growth is offered, nor do the management seem interested in promoting from internal ranks, although they claim to.
Personally and professionally speaking, I would hounestly stay far, far away from this company if you're looking for a career. If you just need to make some dollars real quick, this might be for you.
Delivery/Service Representative (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 12 October 2017
delivery of tobacco at various locations,management was very weak at this location.culture was in place but not followed. the hardest part of the job was being pushed to do at least 6 calls an hour using a routing system that was poorly implemented and that management was well aware of but refused to rectify after many complaints from all reps.the most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with all the different contacts through out the week and seeing my co workers on a daily basis.There is a great core of reps at this location even with weak management.
Truck Driver - Class 1 (Former Employee) – London, ON – 29 September 2017
great pay,but company relies too much on temp services which means equipment is left to the next guy when its broken and tractors are dirty and finding proper documents can be a problem ,you have to cover your butt when driving past a scale because ryder wont , if you enjoy pulling your hair out ,its a great place to work , better bring a good truck gps too ,
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Edmonton, alberta – 21 September 2017
If you want a job to have a quick nasty ending just come to work for Ryder. The Edmonton office is rife with corruption and my way or the highway mentality.gets old real fast.. The most inept upper management I have seen in 20 years of working in this industry. Office romances abound.
