Search for a Job with Our Company

Are all employment opportunities listed on this site?

All current, posted U.S. job opportunities with our company are on this site. We strongly encourage you to search and apply online for positions that interest you. Positions that have been filled are removed immediately from this site.

How do I search for positions?
Under the Career Opportunity Listings header, use the drop-down boxes to:

  • Select a location,
  • Select a specific job category,
  • Select one of our companies,
  • Select a posted date and/or
  • Select a position type in which you are interested.

Please note that you do not need to use all available search features. You can also conduct a keyword search or view all open job positions.

I searched but didn't see the right job for me. Should I send my resumé anyway?
You must apply for an open, posted position using our online system. If you don’t see the right job for you now, then please create a Candidate Profile to receive email notifications of new opportunities that match your interests.  New jobs are posted continually, so if you don’t find a job opening now, come back soon and look again.

How can I subscribe to be notified of future job openings?
You can elect to receive email notifications of future openings that match your interests by creating a Job Search Agent through our online system.

You must first conduct a search for a job.  When the search results are displayed, the option to create a Job Search Agent appears. If a notification of an opening is emailed to you, you will need to apply online for that position.

What does it mean if I see a position posted on a third-party site (i.e., HotJobs, America's Job Bank, etc.) but cannot find it on this site?
It is our goal to post all open positions to this site, but it is possible that you will find a job listed on a third-party site that is not here. This could mean that the job has been filled or has expired, but the third-party site has not removed it.

I received an email notification for a job but can't find it on this site. Why?
The quickest way to find a specific job opening is to enter the job number in the Keyword or Job Number Search box. If you do not find the position, the job may have been filled. For this reason, we encourage you to respond to email job notifications as soon as possible after receiving them.

While viewing the job listings, I saw a position that would be perfect for one of my friends. How can I notify my friend?

  1. Click the job title to view the description.
  2. Click Email this opportunity to a friend or colleague.
  3. Type in your name and email address, your friend’s name and email address and any comments you would like your friend to see.
  4. Click Email your Friend.

Apply for a Job

What is the best way to apply for a job with your company?
The only way to be considered for a position with our company is to complete an online application. We strongly recommend that you take advantage of the many benefits of applying online for positions that interest you.
Benefits include:

  • Your information will be immediately available to the recruiter and hiring manager.
  • You can log in and use the information you already entered every time you apply for a position with YRC Worldwide. (To do this, you must log in with the same user name and password that you used for previous applications.)
  • You can easily update your candidate profile and application by logging in with your login name and password.
  • You may also elect to receive email notifications of new job opportunities that match your interests!

How long will it take me to complete a job application?
It usually takes 15 to 30 minutes for candidates to complete our online job application the first time. If you use the same login name and password for subsequent applications, the information you entered previously will already be in the application, and it will take less time to complete.

Of what does the job application consist?
The application consists of several pages. You will be asked how you heard about the job and other questions, such as pre-screening questions, that help us assess your skills and qualifications based on the job requirements. You will also be asked to complete your personal information; work history; education (if applicable); and voluntary Equal Employment Opportunity, self-identification data. Only complete applications will be considered. You will know your application is complete when you have reached the final Thank You page at the end of the application.

How do I apply for multiple jobs?
You must apply for each job individually. You can reuse the personal information you entered for other applications by logging in with the same login name and password each time. For each application, you may be asked to answer some additional, specific, job-related questions.

I applied before and now want to apply for a different job opening. Do I have to enter all my details again?
No. Click the new position for which you wish to apply, click Apply Now! and then login as a returning candidate by entering your login name and password. All data that was available (personal information, work history, etc.) is already entered for you. You may be asked to answer some additional job-specific questions.

May I email or fax my resumé or submit my resumé or application in person?
You must apply for an open, posted position using our online system.  We strongly encourage you to take advantage of the many benefits of applying online. If you don’t have a personal computer, computers are usually available at public libraries and state job service or unemployment offices.

What if I don't have an email address?
If you don't have a personal email address, we strongly recommend that you sign up for a free, web-based email account (Yahoo!, Gmail) and return to our site. Any follow-up correspondence will go to the email address you used to login.

What should I do if I discover a mistake in my online information after I've submitted my application?
We recommend that you find the job for which you applied in the job listing, then reapply. You can make the needed corrections to the information previously provided. You will only be able to update your application while the position you applied for is still posted. Please make all updates as soon as possible.

How do I know whether I completed my application?
You should have received a Thank You page after you submitted the application. In addition, you will receive an email, confirming receipt of your application within one hour. This message will be sent to the email address you provided when you registered as a user. Only candidates who complete the entire online application will be considered for a position.

How do I save an application that I started and need to finish later?
Click the Save & Return Later button at the bottom of the application. You will be provided a link to return to complete your application. In addition, you will receive an email with detailed instructions. You will be able to update your application only while the position you applied for is still posted. Please make all updates as soon as possible.

Submit a Candidate Profile

How do I create a Candidate Profile?

  • Access our online application tool to view all open job positions or use the search form to find jobs that suit your career interests.
  • Click the position for which you would like to apply.
  • Review the opportunity details provided. To apply for a position, click Apply Now!
  • Click Start by manually completing your profile under the heading New Candidates, Register Your Profile:
  • In the Login/Password section, enter a unique login and password. Your password must be a minimum of 6 characters and maximum of 20 characters. Re-enter the password you have selected.
  • In the Contact Information section, enter your profile information, including your unique email address.  If the email address you enter has already been used on a previous login attempt, you will not be allowed to continue with a New User creation. If this occurs, please ensure that you have not logged in previously.
  • Click Submit Profile.

I created my Job Search Agent. Is that the same as applying?
No. A Job Search Agent is simply a job-alert tool that will automatically notify you about new job opportunities that match the criteria you defined in your profile (i.e., job category, work location, schedule, etc.). If you are notified of a position that matches your profile, you will need to apply for that position.

Some of my personal information (home address, phone) has changed. How can I update my profile?
First, log in as a returning candidate using your login name and password.  At the bottom of the Welcome page, click Update your profile.

I have a new email address. How can I update my profile?
Login as a returning candidate using your user login name and personal password. Then, simply update the email address and click Update Profile.  The screen will display a confirmation message if the changes were successful. The next time you login, you will use your new email address. Please note that if another user account has already been created with the email address you have entered, the system will not allow you to use that email address.

I no longer wish to be contacted for job opportunities with your company. What should I do?
If you would like to stop receiving email notifications, log in as a returning candidate using your login name and password and click Manage your Search Agents.  On the search agents page, click the check box next to the Agent you no longer wish to be notified about to select it. You will then be prompted to confirm your selection. Selecting OK will confirm the deletion.

Hiring Process

I recently submitted my information for a position. What happens next?
When you apply online for a job, completing the entire application, you will receive an acknowledgement through email, and your information immediately becomes available to the recruiter and hiring manager responsible for the opening.

Our recruiters and hiring managers review applications.

Candidates that will be interviewed are contacted directly by the hiring manager or human resources.

If you are not selected for an interview, you will receive an email message notifying you of the status of your application.

I'm interested in working for your company. May I speak with or email the hiring manager or Human Resources department?
Unfortunately, we cannot respond to each candidate individually. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of the benefits of applying online for positions that interest you. By applying online, you will receive an email communication if there is a change in the status of your application or in the status of the position.

Can you tell me whether a job has been filled?
Positions that appear on the job list are open and active. If you no longer see a particular position, it has been filled or is no longer available.

Online Application Navigation

How can I proceed to the next question when the system will not allow me to move forward?
You must complete all the required questions (marked with an asterisk) before you may move forward in the application.

What are required fields?
Required fields request data that is needed to complete your application and are marked with an asterisk (*). If you do not enter information into a required field, the system will alert you with a message.

I had some problems with my computer and couldn't finish my application. How do I get back to it?
