I worked at United Rentals full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Different stuff every day, lots (!LOTS) of overtime, interesting situations.

Cons

As an operations (driver or technician) employee, it is easy to get the feeling that corporate wishes they could just subcontract your entire department. Only sales and management get any recognition or development, and it can be very challenging to move from ops to sales. Also, when you rely on overtime, things like vacations or illnesses can devastate your income. You will always be running two steps behind, without the proper training or tools to do the job right.

Advice to Management

Recognize the profit potential and brand potential from doing a better job on the operations side of the house!

    I worked at United Rentals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay. If you suck up to the right managers.

    Cons

    Waaaaaay to many managers. Which makes all managers mostly lazy self centered bums. Managers receive quarterly bonuses. Hourly employees receive no bonus or any incentive program. Besides being allowed to work overtime. When it suits managers. Senior management speaks highly of values but when push comes to shove values go right out the door

    Advice to Management

    Start taking better care of hourly employees .hourly employees make united a lot of money Incentive programs for salaried and HOURLY employees. Or at least some type of incentive plan.
