Pros

United has great medical and dental benefits. You have opportunity to move up as long as you have a degree and know someone.

Cons

The benefits are more expensive for hourly employees versus salaried employees. You have to make a great first impression otherwise you are doomed for your career. In order to get a decent pay raise, you have to leave and come back.

Advice to Management

United needs to learn to work better together. Aerial rules the company and until they are in the same districts and same regions, there will always be conflict.

    It doesn't matter how much money you make for them, in the end you will lose out to the Politics!

    Pros

    Good benefits: medical, dental and perks.

    Cons

    This company is truly a "House Divided" Aerial Managers and reps are treated like Gods while harding working General Rental Managers and Reps are treated like dirt. Time and time again General Rental reps achieve higher rental rates and have a much broader customer base and they are still referred to as second class employees. It truly amazed me how much money I made for that company year in and year out (bonus for 2006, 2007, 2008) and to be blown out in Q1 2009!!! This company rewards those who have lost them money instead of those who have made them money!!! I find it hilarious almost a year later to see how much worse it has gotten here in Detroit! As of this date, the Aerial division, which previously LOST MILLIONS for UR in Michigan, is now in charge! Talk about rewarding incompetency! UR is not a good place to work unless you have been buddies with upper management for many years. You reap what you sew. Potential employees beware!

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites----Aerial is not king. Run the darn company with a truly UNITED game plan.
