    I worked at BlueLine Rental full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exceptional Culture
    Local Decision Making
    People are Valued
    Solid Benefits Package
    Solid Salary

    Cons

    A few cases of cronyism and nepotism
    Unclear direction from upper management
    Lack of Clear Communication

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the long term goals of the company with clear and concise communication down to the field. Listen to regional and divisional team members as their input can be just as valuable as the VP's. Promote a network of growth and expansion with a closer eye to the current financials, demographics and culture of an acquisition.

    Pros

    Good Benefits.
    The chairs spin...not much else really.

    Cons

    Skeleton Crew, management has stopped giving raises, however they will hire on your direct replacement for 50% more pay.

    The investment company that purchased them and changed them to Blueline is more concerned with a few cents on the dollar than keeping the employees happy. This has caused a gigantic spike in turn over.

    They hollow out departments and have people doing the work of two or three people, but arnt willing to even consider a request for a raise.

    There are no ways to advance, if they create a position they already have someone in mind. They tend to underpay most of the employees until a critical one leaves and they desperately need a replacement.

    Advice to Management

    Give the current employees the pay they deserve and get a much more stable workforce.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, THAT ABOUT IT.

    Cons

    Impossible to move up if you hold a position you are good at unless you are friends with upper management,

    Advice to Management

    Look at the employee as a employee, not as a friend. Look at the potential not there ability to kiss but and not weekend buddies.

    Pros

    The company has very good benefits and the pay is not bad for what you are asked of you to do.

    Cons

    The local leadership is not very strong and the oversight doesn't seem to be to strong over that entity as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time visiting stores and speaking to the hourly employees. You have some great employees in the stores that you guys can get some great insight from.

    Keep up the good work, and try not to change to much as the company grows.

    The culture at Volvo Rents was one of people and family first. Work was very important but the atmosphere was very community oriented.

    Pros

    Great benefits. That's about it. Used to be many pros to this company.

    Cons

    You name it. Cutting off your nose to spite your face would be the best way to put it. As stated in a previous review, they will fire you without a second thought and replace you with someone else for much more than they were paying you (Usually someone who has been pre selected). All departments are running as slim as possible while still expecting, in most cases, unattainable goals that would otherwise be attainable if they were not consistently laying off/firing employees and running off long time employees. It may turn around but I do not see that happening anytime soon. This was once a very good company, that at one time actually cared about taking care of the customer and their people. Those days are long gone. Also, for anyone thinking of applying for a job, be ready for the most tedious and aggravating hiring process you have ever seen or heard of.

    Advice to Management

    Management knows what's needs to be done, it's just a shame that they have to be concerned about their job security if they were to speak up about it. (For the ones that have even considered it)

    The franchise owner had a great wealth of knowledge and was able to easily assist his employees.

    Small organization that had to many layers of supervision. At times this style would hinder growth.
