    Pros

    Nothing is positive about this place

    Cons

    55-80 hour work weeks and not knowing how long you will work because your routes always change.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t run this company like the mafia and don’t hire crappy managers and supervisors.

    Pros

    The company offered good benefits.

    Cons

    Overworked! Underpaid.
    Supervisor not interested in employees.
    Only invested in himself.

    Advice to Management

    You're off site. Complexities of job not understood. Listen to drivers more not supervisor. Extreme/major traffic in areas to be serviced!!!

    Pros

    Medical benefits & weekly direct deposit (but you can get those at other companies)

    Cons

    It starts at the top. United gets passed on from one investment group to another. Their only goal is revenue so executive management can cash out. Operations, drivers and outside sales are treated terribly. Employees do NOT get raises, they increase your work load and sell you on making more money but the goals are not attainable. Don't waste your time here.

    Advice to Management

    All of the "executive" management team should be fired along with your mid management minions.

    I worked at United Site Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent and have some solid employees who are truly dedicated and work hard

    Cons

    Upper management manages through intimidation, politics and fear. Operations manages sales which makes for a dysfunctional approach. IT systems are outdated, internal morale is horrid as employees work hard but fear the wrath of finger pointing from upper management. Pricing seldom makes sense. The goal of the company is to intimidate market through acquisition and charge outrageous market premiums while collecting incredibly high margins. Employees are stretched far too thin and the rubber band will break in time.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your assets and treat them as such rather then letting people get ahead by stepping on others and through intimidation and micro management. Can only squeeze the piggy bank so hard before it breaks.

    I worked at United Site Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Its a full time job, with a chance for a lot of overtime. Coworkers are friendly and willing to help out if they are in the area.

    Cons

    Managers push to the point that as a commercial driver you endanger your self and loosing your license. No appreciation for the hard work you put it in.

    Advice to Management

    Treasure your hard working employees and stop looking at them as a number. Fix the vehicles and make them road safe so they don't endanger others.

    Pros

    Beat them up for pay. they will cave in.

    Cons

    really unorganized and everybody is in charge! you will have at least 3 bosses all of which want something completely different than the others. You will be backstabbed I guarantee it.

    Advice to Management

    None. nobody will listen to a possible good idea so why waste the effort.

    I have been working at United Site Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pros:
    Free pizza every other Friday
    Somewhat flexible hours in sales
    Hands off management (or uninterested, either way)
    Good base salary

    Cons

    Cons:
    HR is NOT friendly
    Porta-potties and trash containers
    Management is too hands off. My Manager had 9 direct reports that all sat in the same area, yet he was not involved. Did not help me through 1 sale/situation.
    Sales also does collections! Hahaha...
    Very poor communication between markets.
    Decisions on sales are made by Market Ops Mgt (really bad idea).
    Very poor inventory.
    Equally poor inventory systems.
    Also, if you give your 2 weeks notice, you'll be let go without pay.

    Not a good opportunity. Take this job as a band-aid until you find a real opportunity.

    Sooooooo boring!

    Advice to Management

    After 5 years of service you get a United Site jean jacket. That's not how to attract and maintain talent.
