    I worked at United Site Services full-time

    Pros

    Driving if you like it

    Cons

    Extreme micro manager at this location in Salt Lake, he'll probably run everyone off. A lot of guys we're talking about leaving, even guys that have been here a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't matter this company doesn't care about advice.

    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

    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.

    I worked at United Site Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you work for a company that is purchased by this giant, your first two years are going to be sweet! When the take over begins this group does everything to make you feel like all of your years of service and hard work means a lot. You will receive good benefits and lots of overtime.

    Cons

    Here comes the rub, as you work on this group will take away sick time personal days and bonus's. but the hardest thing to watch is the lack of attention that is given to those around
    You both co-workers and customer alike. You be locked in your pay rate and your benefits will cost you more yearly,up to 25% of your monthly pay.

    Advice to Management

    Looking ahead you would be well severed to be more focused on mid-management control when left with the rains. People make a company strong, the team in place when the new company was purchased must have done a lot right because that's why they were bought.

    Pros

    I negotiated a good salary for myself. They had benefits, but they were minimal.

    Cons

    Senior management and executives lead through intimidation. These people will scream and cuss at you to get what they want. They will berate you and beat you down in public and they do NOT want you to disagree with them or show them a better way. Employees are hired based on friendships and fired based on grudges. I negotiated my salary and they held it over my head the entire time, telling me that I had to move closer to the office or they'd fire me. It was the most toxic environment I've ever worked in.

    Advice to Management

    Put your customers and your employees first. Listen to them. Treat them with dignity and respect. Modernize your order entry, inventory, and routing systems. Stop the cussing and yelling and 'mafia' management style. Create an inclusive and empowering culture.
