Company plans to fill 200 positions; Benefits include union contract pay rates and full paid health care

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- YRC Freight, a subsidiary of YRC Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: YRCW), has announced immediate plans to hire 200 qualified over-the-road drivers in cities across the U.S., primarily in Maybrook, NY; Buffalo, NY; St. Paul, MN; Chicago, Il; Salt Lake City, UT; Akron, OH; Cleveland, OH; Cincinnati, OH; North Indianapolis, IN; Charlotte, NC; Jackson, MS: Albuquerque, NM; and Kansas City, MO.

"YRC Freight is growing and our volumes are building," said Jeff Rogers, president of YRC Freight. "A huge key to our ability to prosper is engaged employees who are focused on working together with the common objective of on-time pickups and deliveries, claims free service, emphasis on safety, and the long-term commitment of delivering confidence to our customers every day."

A unionized company, YRC Freight makes available to its road drivers full paid health care benefits and vacation time. Drivers are paid union contract pay rates. All equipment is provided and maintained by the company and all fuel cost is paid for by the company. Many daily dispatches involve minimum time away from home. With the exception of team drivers, overnight stays for drivers are provided and paid for in hotel rooms.

YRC Freight recruits from approximately 100 truck-driving schools across the nation and is dedicated to investing in new hires. The company offers training for new drivers and helps them fine-tune their freight driving skills – including how to maneuver in city traffic and how to complete hazmat required paperwork.

"YRC Freight is a great place for drivers. We work as a team to get the job done and everyone treats each other with respect," said Wilson Meier, 11-year veteran driver with YRC Freight who was just named as the New York State Motor Truck Association Driver of the Year. "We have excellent health care benefits and our equipment is well maintained too," added Meier.

"We are the original LTL experts and while our name has recently changed, the caliber of our workforce and our commitment to our customers remains the same as it has been for the past 85 years," added Rogers. "Our strength is built on the talents and dedication of each and every employee. We invite safety-minded professional drivers with a strong work ethic and the desire to succeed to join our winning team."
