    Pros

    The pay and benefits are pretty good. My manager is great. I get to work from home which is a huge plus. The permanent employees are great. They all take pride in their work.

    Cons

    The only down side is when they hire seasonal employees so many just don't seem to care about the job which makes it harder on the people who actually care about our jobs and the company.

    Pros

    U-Haul takes care of it's employees with great medical benefits and employee stock ownership options. I also like that it's a very stable company which gives me some sense of job security.

    Pros

    Some pros of working at uhaul is that it is a fast paced environment. It keeps you going and you are always learning new things.

    Cons

    Some cons about working at uhaul is that it doesn't necessarily treat their employees the best. When asking for a raise you can't expect much.

    Advice to Management

    Please try and help your employees further themselves even if they don't ask for your help.

    Pros

    As a part-time system member there is a lot of flexibility. I had an amazing boss for 2 years and he worked with me while I had another job or two and then school. He was very supportive in me advancing my career whether it meant with U-Haul or not, which was why going full-time was easy transition. Though we are a large corporation, it is still very much a family business. CEO - Joe goes and grabs lunch with everyone else and also sits with them. VP- JT knows you by name and come and tells everyone to go home on Christmas Eve. I've been very blessed.

    Cons

    I am a lifer and I bleed orange and unfortunately, it will take me a long time to get to the financial point I'd like to be at.

    Advice to Management

    This is really hard but I'd have to say, quit holding back so much. If you got rid of the dirt you'd see the diamonds.

    Pros

    14$/hr plus tips you got paid a minimum of 28$ per job even if you worked 2 minutes and could end up doing 5 1 hour jobs in a day and go home having made 100$+.great way to keep in shape and a huge way to network. you meet a lot of prominent people always busy number 1 on the website "emove.com" and has the most and best reviews

    Cons

    very hard labor- you could work two hard hours and only go home with 28 $ for the day. its a physically demanding job
