    I have been working at United Rentals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We work as a team, everyone from service to sales. Our employees are passionate about what we do and we are confident that we will get the job done. If we don’t know how, we will find out how and make it happen. I love our team!

    Cons

    United Rentals likes to change how they do things quite often. Change can be hard, especially if you are set in your ways. However, the change is always for good reason.

    Advice to Management

    Learn as much as you can so you can have answers for your team. Training is never under rated.
