Frustrating

Service Tech IV (Former Employee)
Denton, TX

I worked at United Rentals

ProsMost Employees were very good to deal with
Great benefits
Close to home

ConsVery difficult to move up in the company
Would be required to work long hours in a day, or be "on call" and if you got called out in the middle of the night for say 4 hours, instead of paying you overtime they would require you to come in 4 hours late 2 days after you were called out.
There was nothing to make you want to be there, they removed all employee perks.
Very poor Management.
Pay was minimal for the work done. (i've worked at places with less pay and were a100 times more enjoyable)

Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your employees and they will more than take care of you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

No original thinkers wanted, only sycophants need apply

Operations Manager (Current Employee)
Middleburg, VA

I have been working at United Rentals


Pros: The salary structure is competetive. The medical, dental and vision benefits are very good. The large number of locations provides opportunities for advancement and also… Cons: In some districts advancement depends on favoritism and kowtowing over ability and experience. This company is losing a lot of talented employees… Advice to Senior Management: Eliminate the aerial division, the aerial stores don't rent anything that isn't carried at… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

All talk and no action.

Sales Representative (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

I worked at United Rentals


Pros: If you produce results you will keep your job. Good job to have if you like weekends off and don't want any… Cons: Most of the management all the way up to regional level is unaware what it really takes to grow market share in this very competitive… Advice to Senior Management: They know it all. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
