    I have been working at United Rentals full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Company truck, great pay, decent benefits. UR has a great safety culture, while big a large company they still have a great family atmosphere. They have a lot of different divisions within the company. This helps bring a lot of value to a customer when we can handle a project from start to finish and gives us a leg up on the competition.

    Cons

    While I understand the needs for meetings to keep all 18,000+ employees on the same page. The redundancy of the meetings causes a lot of time wasted, when we could be out selling. Other than that it has been a great company to work for.

    I worked at United Rentals full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits, Training. Most of the managers take pride in their work and run a clean ship. Service and drivers are top tier. Availability of fleet is definitely a pro.

    Cons

    Too big to fail mentality, don't forget about the customers needs. If you are placed in a territory that has no opportunity, they will find ways to make it seem like you are not doing the job well. Territories were flooded and many reps quit.
