I worked at U-Haul

Pros

Employees get a discount on truck rental, and a turkey at Thanksgiving.

Cons

More concerned with Quantity rather than Quality; parking situation is really bad - sidewalks and lots are in bad shape and not enough lighting to be safe at night.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication with employees, give feedback to new employees, pay should increase to market rates, benefits should be similar to other companies,

    I have been working at U-Haul

    Pros

    steady paycheck, I get to be at home

    Cons

    technical programs are sub par and work intermittently, when this happens the employee is docked pay and considered absent when company programs do not work properly. To avoid this issue managers suggest you log in to work at least an hour before.

    Your schedule availability is not relevant on holidays. Nearly impossible to get time off. Minimum wage pay, though ads say at least $10 an hour (everyone starts at this pay, no matter your experience). Bonus is available, but expect to jump through multiple hoops to get it.

    Docked time on your "availability" (which affects your bonus) if you take your scheduled breaks and lunch. If you receive a break and lunch, even if you work a 10 hour day.

    Antiquated HR policies such as counting consecutive absences individually. If you are late more than one hour, you are considered absent for the whole day. If you must go into the office to work, it is business attire required. No vacation time or personal time before 2 years. Behind in industry standards for pay, vacation time, medical, and breaks/lunches.

    Training is more of a suggestion, with very little company consistency to its standards and regulations. Opportunities for advancement are not openly discussed with employees, you need to "find your own way". Employees are discouraged by management from submitting ideas that would improve on company practices and training. Very little support from any management when working with an unknown product or unfamiliar situation, and expect a different answer any time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real trainers, with real experience. Make consistency with the standards of what customer service tells customers, and what locations actually do. Promote people to QA and SMS who actually have experience and can help reps, so we don't get a different answer every time. Get up to industry standards as far as pay and hr policies go. Stop posting ad's that you pay $14 an hour, only to reveal you only pay minimum wage.
