    Pros

    Benefits are great. There's lots of options for growth for the right person. You learn to operate all kinds of heavy machinery.

    Cons

    Managers usually ask for too much. Expect long hrs and lots of corrections, because you have to do things the way they want.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the whole store about operations. Alow people to learn new jobs.... to grow. I was told I would get training not just corrections.

    Pros

    Company has great benefits. Overall upper management seems to care about making thing better for the employees on the gound floor.

    Cons

    A lot of open jobs with in the company are already filled before the job open is even posted. You really need to network to advance in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to mold the equipment rental business in to other delivery services. This is a different kind of business own it and make it your own.

    Unfortunately, in this market (austin) I was originally leading up to become and Outside Sales Rep but they began hiring only good looking women for the job. These women had no rental experience and couldn't tell you the difference between a backhoe and forklift.
