Busy, Busy, Busy never ending work...

Mechanical IV (Current Employee)

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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great if you like Micromanagement, Big Brother, Corporate CYOA games and general BS.

    I have been working at United Rentals full-time for more than a year


    Pros: >It's United Rentals, everyone knows them and there's a huge customer base. >Decent pay and benefits. >Lot's of $$$ to… Cons: >Senior Management tells everyone what they want to hear. Look at all the glowing reviews on here, that popped up all at the same time… Advice to Senior Management: Stop being so corporate and leave companies that you've purchased alone. You bought them because they're successful, so why start monkeying around… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
