    I worked at NES Rentals full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -Good salary
    -Great vacation package
    -Good communication and teamwork
    -Modern , quality equipment
    -Sensible work hours
    -Great benefits and insurance packages
    -Well maintained rental fleet

    Cons

    -Tons of paperwork
    -Dispatch plays favorites
    -Must use height measurement tool on every machine , every time . This sounds like a good practice , but, there are only so many different pieces of equipment . Measuring the same type of machine over and over is insulting.
    - Being told to stow chains and boomers laying loose all over the trailer instead of stowed in boxes or on chainrack for the sake of speed is lazy , unsafe , and very dangerous .
    -Constant scanning of rental contracts with mobile device , and reading tiny print all day is torture on vision

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is so much needless , redundant procedures that could be eliminated to streamline production and boost morale.

    Pros

    There was potential here, but limited management. Management did not take the sales force seriously.

    Cons

    work-life balance was difficult, long hours. a lot of inner office gossip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow people to work more independently, realize that employees are people too.

    I worked at NES Rentals full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    NES operates in good markets where the opportunity to be profitable and financially successful is greater than average. Safety is promoted and time and money is spent to achieve a safe working environment.

    Cons

    Limited fleet and skeleton branch staffs are asked to perform miracles. Buddy system is used to hire Management personnel and some are poorly qualified and have no leadership or management skills. Meeting internal company targets and requirements are the main focus and the most demanding part of the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff braches with adequate personnel to perform jobs, develop career ladders for all employees, use skills assessment tests before hiring or promoting management personnel and focus on sales.

    Pros

    Corporate management that wants the employees to strive.
    Very good benefits and extra bonuses for employees and their families.
    Great vacation packages even for new employees.

    Cons

    There should be outside hiring instead of the manager buddy system.
    The workers should get more extras rather than the managers.
    Bonuses should be distributed amongst all branch employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some things like listed in the cons tab should be addressed. There are a few good people that have quit because of that reason.

    Pros

    the opportunity for this company to expand exists

    Cons

    lack of equipment which limits opportunity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    in branches that have been ignored, you must treat them as new start up branches and put equipment in them.
     customers will not wait two or three days to get the equipment they need. New business does not afford you the opportunity of advance notice.

    Pros

    Enjoyable work environment. Upper management was a pleasure to work for. I got laid off during a rough economic time.

    Cons

    There were 3 branches around the Atlanta area. It felt like we were always competing with one another. My immediate supervisor was lazy and did not do much of anything. I felt like this really hurt our branches performance led to both of us getting laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should give branches incentives to send deals to each other. Instead we were taking deals from each other in their each others areas. I felt like I was competing with my own company. Also when laying off employees they should take look at where the fat needs to be trimmed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep updating the fleet. Look for more and different ways to show appreciation to all employees. Look for ways to promote from within.
