    Talk about low pay!

    Storage Custodian (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsIn my position, I rarely have to deal with customers. 20% discount on rooms and trucks. There is flexibility in the schedule.

    ConsThe pay is very low, little room for advancement. When things are going well, you will have get more hours than you want, but when business is down, you will be lucky to get 2-3 hours a week!

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo unto others as you would have done to you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    DC Metro U-Haul is run by an idiot.

    General Manager (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsGM and Verizon discounts. Good people, and depending on the location, you can help alot of people get along in life. Rough times we live in, perfect place to put a smile on a stranger's face.

    ConsDepending on the region, the upper echelon of management is typically idiots. Most of them lack the proper education to run a region of centers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet an education of some sorts, then try to run a business. How can so much be run by somebody who probably could run an ice cream truck. Sad. Too many cooks in the kitchen.

    Great Company to Work For, Publicly Traded but Privately Run

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsDepending 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.

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

    Careers Are Short

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros%20 off U-haul equipment rentals.

    ConsDepends what department you work at. So called careers don't last loner than a year. Most employees move on to better opportunities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want employees to stick around longer that a year might want to pay better salaries.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A great educational experience at a somewhat laid back company in the heart of Phoenix.

    Intern (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsAs an intern, they have you working on real projects, but the supervisors are careful not to overload you with too much work. They do a great job of knowing your capabilities. They also teach you a great deal. The company has a really culture built around their brand, and the founder's family still plays a vital role through out the company. It's also not a "grimy" place to work.

    ConsThere are definitely a lot of seasoned vets in upper management that will probably never quit. At the same time, the middle management is huge, so it's not like they won't ever promote you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue running a great intern program! The only thing I could ask for more is just to make clear what opportunities for advancement there are.
