  1. "Great Employer"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Branch Manager 

    I worked at United Rentals full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. All the resources of the largest equipment rental company in the world.

    Cons

    It’s large size also can lead to inefficiency. Recent acquisitions not always well planned for at a local level, leading to confusion on strategy once integrated.

    Long days, rude customers, rotating on-call shifts, lack of transparency from management.

    "No support"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Columbus, OH

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

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good Benefits, multiple opportunities

    Standards work requirements and expectations not the same across the board. Some do nothing and have been employed for years, some work hard but at anytime expendable.

    I worked at United Rentals for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly Co workers, good pay, family friendly, opportunity for advancement and safe work environment.

    Cons

    Went through 6 managers in 6 years, I have ran location with remote management that came to get paperwork maybe once a week and was little help with issues concerning my location, I've had to train new managers.Also working counter can sometimes get overwelming with management unlikely to help. My last manager tried to change and add to my job roll to the point I couldn't do it.

    Advice to Management

    Get branch managements act together. Stop trying to implement safety and organization initiatives meant to micromanage employees, make sure employees get incentives when earned. Don't exclude non-metro locations from company activities. Find a way to lower cost of benefits to employees.
