    Management and Co workers are great people and do make the days enjoyable.

    days are long and being on salary you do not get paid the overtime for working the 10-11 hours due to you must get everything done before end of day.

    Pros

    NOT ALL BRANCHES OF H&E ARE LIKE THE ONE I WORKED FOR.
    • Laid back atmosphere /not very strict
    • Food sometimes provided

    Cons

    •Issues with one of the long time employees there- many people had issues with her and her behavior but she got away with it I guess bc she worked there so long
    • Rude, unprofessional, disrespectful, and petty behavior
    • Management was a joke- I went several times to try and get the issues resolved that I was having and both times dismissed with yeah but that's just how she is ?
    • Management was clue less and passive
    • The training LOL yeah good luck with that.

    Advice to Management

    Take a leadership/management course, branch manager needs to learn humility and quit letting his ego run his behavior AND listen and take action for your employees. When an environment is toxic, nothing really good can come from it and people can't grow. Also, quit being scared... Your the managers/leaders so act like it.
