    I have been working at Sunbelt Rentals full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Company has very good health insurance and PTO. Since sunbelt bought my previous employer my family health insurance costs decreased $300.00 per month. My direct supervisor has been with the company for 15 years, and my other manager is very people driven and reasonable. Company is very transparent with its budgets and sales data.

    Cons

    Same struggles any company with thousands of people. When you first get hired it is a bit overwhelming between safety and company policy's but they do make it as painless as they can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Literally nothing. I don't know if my situation is unique or if it is company wide. It's great to work for people who care So much about the employees. Everything I have asked for I have either gotten or will be on a path to get.

    Pros

    Excellent Opportunity for Commissions and Profit Share if you work hard for everyone!

    Cons

    A very demanding job that demands 24/7, but they pay you for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure to look at the entire picture and not just a direct managers view. You could be losing a lot of valuable employees, if there were to be a sour apple.

    Great leadership, outstanding financial stability, and many great people.

    Having to work with people that just don't get it and don't have a clue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train our people better even the ones that come to us with years of industry experience. If their ideas failed someplace else why would they work at Sunbelt?

    Pros

    If you like empty promises and a intimidating work place I guess you'd love it. In the ordinary Tool Rental Stores of Sunbelt it seems as if for the most part the employees are content. The specialty divisions are a whole different matter as they do not run upon a 8 AM to 5 PM structure like the Tool Rental Stores do.

    Cons

    Forget compensation in any PC that offers 24/7 service. In the case of employees that drive company equipment or transport equipment know what the Department of Transportation has regulations that you must follow even if you do not have a commercial drivers license. If you do not like putting yourself in liability at breaking DOT Hours of Service or vehicle accident by intimidation instead of following the law and the need for safety this is not a place to even consider.
    Training is by their convenience not based upon the need of training to do your job safely. Not uncommon to be told to repair or fix a piece of equipment you never saw in your life let alone you knowing the hazards presented such as in generators or earth moving equipment. A real challenge to figure out if you need a key to start the equipment sometimes, lol.
    Can you imagine telling a customer I am here to fix that big forklift but I am not licensed to operate it? Then how do you know if you fixed it then, ask the customer before he tells you to get off his property and have someone take the equipment with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The "What ever it takes" motto of Sunbelt Rentals should be replaced with "What ever it takes legally and safely" Never expect a employee to violate the law while threatening them with termination for not following the law, including OSHA regulations.

    Pros

    Very fast pace job. Always something going on

    Upper Management too many close friends in upper management. If one of the upper management doesn't like you your career is screwed there.
