    Pros

    Depending on which department you work for, you will have some of the best bosses you could ever have. They are passionate and knowledgeable, and they are focused on making Amerco better while at the same time providing you with the best opportunity for growth. The length of service can be both good and bad - this company has folks that have been with the company for 20-30 years or more. The good: strong industry knowledge and passion for the company. The downside: Outside ideas may not come by as often.

    Cons

    The gas price spike and the housing market crisis are impacting the moving industry, so compensation and hiring may not be as competitive compared to some other industries. The length of service can be both good and bad - this company has folks that have been with the company for 20-30 years or more. The good: strong industry knowledge and passion for the company. The downside: Outside ideas may not come by as often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to build loyalty from your folks. Increase communication down to the lowest level folks so everybody could continue to be at the same page.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AMERCO in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    The initial interview was with the Uhaul recruiter. I was given an IQ type test and personality test. I was then given a one-on-one interview with a recruiter that new little about the actual position or the department. I was then emailed a week later for a second interview with the manager of the department that I was applying for. I had an interview with the manager and he/she did not have any questions prepared and did not seem familiar with interviewing candidates. Although the second interview seemed to go well, I was emailed a week later and told that I was over qualified.
