I have been working at U-Haul part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very flexible scheduling, management respects you, welcoming environment to work in, and I've learned a lot from working at U-Haul. Now that I've finally earned my Bachelor's degree its time to move on.

Cons

High stress with relatively low pay compared to what's expected of you, basically everyone is hired as part-time, work weekends and holidays with no holiday pay. I earned $10.50 per hour busting my butt and running the entire center. Sometimes I worked 40-50 hours per week but since I'm technically "part-time" I don't get the benefits of full-time employees (paid holidays, sick and vacation pay)

Advice to Management

Don't be so cheap. We work hard and deserve full time positions

    I worked at U-Haul full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Lack of Training. It is assumed that if you do well in one position you will do well in another, but they will not train when you go into the next position. You're set up for failure.
     Upper management will not listen. When there's an issue, they do not get both sides of a story. They will automaticly take a manager's side.

    Advice to Management

    Train people when you promote them into a new position, especially if they were considered "a valuable employee" in their old position, and the new position is in a totally different area. They were valuable because they knew the job and will continue to be valuable when you train them in their new position.

    I worked at U-Haul part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fairly relaxed environment with other employees and pretty low stress duties. Most people you deal with on a daily basis are reasonable and the hours were quite flexible.

    Cons

    Most facilities are very understaffed and thus there will be times when you are overwhelmed by the number of customers and simply unable to keep up.
    Moving can be a very stressful time in people's lives.

    Advice to Management

    Left due to problems with interpersonal relations amongst staff. Improve camaraderie between the people who work under you and with them.
