I worked at U-Haul full-time for less than a year
Pros – Work your own property, meet a lot of nice people, help relieve moving stress, qualifying for monthly bonus is a plus, apartment and utilities are provided
Cons – Working 12-13 hour days, have to work weekends and holidays, health insurance has high deductible, outside work in extremely hot conditions, endless to-do lists from MCP, getting phone calls from storage customers in the middle of the night, having multiple one way trucks dropped off on property overnight, house keepers that make their own schedule and upper management - when questioned - says they have been with us a long time so we're lenient with their hours/days,
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at U-Haul full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – Field support was ok. The dealer's within the route for the most part were an extended family, and the company benefits were good.
Cons – Local management constantly pulled you off of what you were doing to address something that could have waited which simply created more work. Long hours for little pay
Advice to Senior Management – Markeing Company Presidents have to much freedom to add to the Area Field Manager's or General Manager's work, which is in direct contrast to company policy. Usually at the request of their supervisor or Area District Vice President. The quality of the work done is poor and simply has a trickle down effect to customers, and company employees.

I have been working at U-Haul
Pros – Excellent benefits for full time employees once you are eligible.
U-haul is nationwide so plenty of opportunities to work for U-haul
Cons – Low paying job for the work that is expected.
Lack of formal training for employees.
Management of the company is somewhat old school and stereotypical, there tends to be the idea that females belong in certain rolls within the company and males belong in others.
Advice to Senior Management – Pay people better or lighten the workload some how. Also come up with some type of formal training program for general managers
