Pros

Field support was ok. The dealer's within the route for the most part were an extended family, and the company benefits were good.

Cons

Local management constantly pulled you off of what you were doing to address something that could have waited which simply created more work. Long hours for little pay

Advice to Management

Markeing Company Presidents have to much freedom to add to the Area Field Manager's or General Manager's work, which is in direct contrast to company policy. Usually at the request of their supervisor or Area District Vice President. The quality of the work done is poor and simply has a trickle down effect to customers, and company employees.

    Pros

    #1 Benefits are excellent #2 Immediate management is super #3 Recognition for accomplishments and support for advancement

    Cons

    Scheduled nights, weekends, holidays #1 Job description highly inaccurate #2 We deal with a very difficult customer base, as they are almost always in a "stressed-out, ready to explode" mood b/c they just had a horrendous move they completed (one of the major life stressors). Customer Service is extremely difficult. #3 No training and most employees are Part Time (as required by U-haul) so there is large turn-over and no real loyalty to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Training, training, training...in a uniformed, organized method (possibly should have a position that goes to several locations and focuses only on training).
