Rain for Rent Review
Programmer/ Analyst (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CAJune 5, 2015
Pros: Flexible work hours, and meeting with management weekly
Cons: No inputs on NEW company projects & NEW project information was ONLY provided by the supervisor.
When I first arrived to work, the supervisor would call the IT team members together and discuss task & projects needed to be done during the week. We would then provided him our progress on tasks that still needed to be completed for the week. Then we discuss and prioritize these tasks for that week.

good place to work with focus on safety and family
operation supervisor (Former Employee), Marbleton, WYMarch 28, 2015
Pros: good pay and insurance
Cons: environment
a typical day at work was 14 to 16 hours long in the cold, and other weather conditions. i could get down to 40 below zero in Wyoming. we pumped water to the fracs in these extremes. Although the conditions were miserable the camaraderie and work ethic of everyone around you made it a good job. In short your fellow employees watched your back to make sure you went home in one piece

Productive and a new experience
Installer (Former Employee), Bossier City, LAApril 8, 2014
Pros: free coffee, breakfast and sometimes lunch
Cons: lay offs when sales drop
Working for this company was great, especially with not having any experience in this area. I learned alot of new things and met really interesting people. The management and co-workers were easy to get along with. The hardest part of this job was being laid off. The most enjoyable part was using tools such as a heating gun, water pressure hose, wire wheel etc.

Good workplace
Shop Foreman (Former Employee), Kenedy, TXMay 15, 2013
Pros: its pretty easy work if you have the crew to explain the task at hand.
Cons: management!
Its a easy job. Nothing about this company is hard. The only bad part about is that managers wont let your overtime go overboard. So they started cutting hours and sending people home after staying in shop painting bolts blue for 8 hours. Work is getting slow. Left company after hours were being cut from 80's to just over 40 hours.

Some good people who actually do care and help while others pass the buck.
Laborer (Current Employee), Paul, IDOctober 27, 2015
Pros: Excellent benefits
Cons: Too much favoritism. No commrodery!
Too much favoritism and no commrodery. Lazy people get to do very little and pass the buck. When you ask for help no one will help you. It's more like a clic or gang like mentality. If you stand up then they won't talk to you or shun you. Like working with kids. Said something to management but got worse!

Pros: The work is interesting and consistant.
Cons: Healthcare is horrible.
The day is usually non stop busy. I have learned a lot of valuable lessons in a lot of different trades. The management is awesome and flexible to all the different personalities. The hardest part of the job is everything we deal with is super heavy and at the end of the day I am exhausted.

Very hard place to be comfortable, the manager has a hygiene problem, she micro manages and does not allow your job to be your own.
Biller (Current Employee), Fort Lupton, COApril 23, 2014
Pros: you are left alone for the most part
Cons: training was terrible
the benefits are great but then management is very poor, the training was very short, it is more like micro management rather than one on one training so that a person does not fail.

Service Technician (Current Employee), San Joaquin, CAFebruary 8, 2015
Great company to get into however as far as advancement and promoting its a little difficult. I think if they had better opportunities and believed more in promoting from within the company would be a lot stronger. Great benefits and good pay.

Crew Leader (Former Employee), Conway, ARApril 28, 2015
Pros: People
Cons: Pay
The people at Rain for rent were great. The management wasn't as good. They didn't treat people their employees like they mattered. What really did it for me was the apathy of the employees. Everyone got along so well and I made a lot of great friends.
