Current Employee - Mechanical IV

I have been working at United Rentals full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

#1 The benefits - full dental, eyes, medical 401k, paid vacations, six paid sick days, three floating (birthday, Anniversary DOH +1 more). Mediocre annual training. Fairly competitive pay.

Cons

Must own tools, inability to take vacation when company is busy (summer). No real opportunity for advancement, once you have a job it's hard to transfer to another location or level ie sales. Feel stuck, need to be "customer oriented" when dealing with ignorant users (read: Dumb people). Pay raises seem to be mere cost of living adjustments versus raise. Must have two sets of tools (you are a shop and road tech)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Maybe a program which allows technicians to rotate between branches. More regional town hall meetings so the lower techs can address some issues with management.

    Pros

    Insurance plan was good as well as holidays

    Cons

    They set you up for failure. Training is non-existant.Unless you are part of the selected few, there is no teamwork. Although you go to mg mt with concerns m nothing is done then they use those issues as a reason to "eliminate" your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is top heavy. Too many executives.
