    I have been working at RSC Holdings

    Pros

    A very positive environment for all employees. There are opportunities for advancement with in the company. I would encourage others to seek employment there.

    Cons

    The salary was not competitive to comparable industries or job classifications. There is a very high amount of turnover as well as long hours. 70 to 80 hours is not uncommon.

    OUTSIDE SALES in Tulsa, OK
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at RSC Holdings

    Pros

    You can make good money if you have the right territory and store manager. We have the best lead geration system and computer software in the industry. Provide nice company trucks and expense accounts.

    Cons

    Micro managed to death. Unable to match competitive prices even for customers with 1 mil. in yearly spending. Red Tape= way to much reporting and not enough gray areas to help the customer. I.E. Training for customers takes 8 hours and 250.00 dollars where as other companies can do it in 30 minutes for free.

    I have been working at RSC Holdings

    Pros

    You get to learn about all different types of heavy machinery and get sales experience with huge industrial companies. Also there are great benefit packages and employees are very team oriented.

    Cons

    There is alot of time spent sitting at a desk answering the telephone. Some times is seems to more like a secretary position than a sales position.

    Territory Manager in Rockford, IL
    Recommends

    I worked at RSC Holdings

    Pros

    Working in the outdoors, education reimbursement, free use of most rental equipment, get to drive bulldozers, excavators, forklifts, manlifts, scissor lifts and backhoes. Outside sales get Ford 4x4 pickup trucks to drive around in all day. Managment is very transparent with the books, every employee knows exactly how the company is doing and what their contribution is.

    Cons

    extremely long hours during the summer, calls in the middle of the night on weekends during bad weather, upper management's annual winter "freakout" when rentals slow down, when I was there it was very difficult to calculate your monthly commissions, supposedly fixed now under the current compensation plan.

  6. "Solid company. You'll work your tail-off. Stamina required."

    General Manager in Houston, TX

    I worked at RSC Holdings

    Pros

    The senior management seems to know where the company needs to go to achieve continued growth; both organically and via acquisitions... the company will be there for the long haul.

    Cons

    The hours required for keeping the customers needs satisfied are grueling. IF you are salaried, expect to put in 60- to 70-hours per week. IF you are hourly, expect to have a heavy work load and constant hounding regarding keeping OT to a minimum.

    I worked at RSC Holdings

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. You can transfer and work anywhere in the country. After one year you can receive educational assistance towards your degree.

    Cons

    The hours are way to long. When it comes to promotions the good ol boy system is firmly entrenched. The District Managers will shield everything fro HR.

    I have been working at RSC Holdings

    Pros

    The benefits are decent..Thats about it.

    Cons

    Uneven pay and pay is not based on experience.No chance for promotion.Aging equipment and not near enough mechanics to do the work...Impossible numbers to meet.Micro managed and a waste of money having too many chiefs looking over your shoulder.Poor to NO training for newer mechanics.5S is a joke..Most stores have 1-3 mechanics and they can't possibly try to run and set the shop up like a toyota car shop.Management is out of touch and seems to have no clue ..company stresses preventative maintenance yet they have no PM mechanics,no service managers, etc etc.The only way to meet the numbers is to pencil whip the info as it's otherwise impossible.Most shops are old and small.Maintenance and down equipment seems to be the number 1 priority with the company,yet they only hire inside and outside sales,,no mechanics,,Why in the world does an inside sales rep need a college degree?? LOL..I just hope the economy turns soon so I can find a better place to work..And NO,,I'd never recommend working at RSC if your a mechanic..
