    Great place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Van Nuys, CA

    ProsThe people are extremely friendly and supportive. I was on a temporary assignment here. I was accepted as one of the "gang" immediately and provided with excellent training. I was afforded the opportunity in this assignment to learn new skills that will help me in my future employment opportunities

    ConsThere were no cons to working at Electro Rent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe managers and teams that I dealt with on a daily basis were professional and very friendly and helpful.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    There are as many pluses as minuses at this company.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe benefits are pretty good. The techs are fun to work with. There are opportunities to learn new things on occasion.

    ConsProcesses and procedures are often inefficient. The wages leave something to be desired. There's not a lot of room for advancement if you work in the labs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet feedback from your leads and techs, listen to it, and honestly consider it. Provide incentive for techs to produce with regards to quality and quantity.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stable Company, Enjoyable Work

    Technician (Former Employee)
    Van Nuys, CA

    ProsThe company is frugal. Yes, this means a low raise, but also it means they stay in business. They know how to make money. They can be demanding, but fair. The facility is well maintained with an exercise room, break room with kitchen and cable tv. I liked my boss and even his boss. I very much enjoyed the work, it was always interesting.

    ConsIt can be frightening, a small mistake can cost you your job with little warning. But be careful, don't make mistakes. I was disappointed with my raise. After really doing great things I was expecting a good raise and got something like a penny tip. People get hired away by customers all the time for higher pay. Traffic is really bad in So Ca. Expensive to live there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo what you can to keep your people happy. Tell em they are doing a good job. They are.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If you're desperate

    Warehouse (Former Employee)
    Van Nuys, CA

    ProsGood experience with multiple hardware platforms. Somewhat flexible working environment.

    ConsWhen the economy is on the downside, I feel employees are treated like trash that never made it to the wastebasket. In my opinion departments dont work together. My belief was to avoid management when possible. I felt like everyday was a battle to survive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRespect your good employees when possible. If your lower level staff provide constructive criticism, listen to them as they are the ones in the trenches. Attempt to be positively proacitve instead of negatively reactive. If you want your staff to stand behind you and work hard then give them some positive support. I left the organization because of overall negative culture.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
