Service Manager (Former Employee) – Burnaby BC – 13 June 2012
Great venue that I worked at. Upper managment not able to get respect of employee's due to poor decisions. Well trained techs Hard to work with other branchs as no structure through the company. Great benifits No room for advancement unless you are part of a "gentlemens" club and the company thinks of you as a number and not a person. Very metrix and number orientated company and expect you to get them by whatever means.

Heavy Duty Mechanic (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 30 December 2016
management in most places of branches are not the greatest , the workers are fine but management is another story.They push to get equipment out the door even tho its not ready to go , they expect mechanics to say good to go when its not , then your putting your ticket on the line , there number 1 thing is make as much money as they can whatever the cost may be , be very carefull with them if you work with them .
ok place to work if youn have no ambition to get anywhere in life
Equipment Associate (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 15 December 2016
I have been a positive employee for the company for 5+ years. I've taken on several rolls for the company and received no recognition for my service. I believe that before things turn worse its time for me to become a valued team member for another company and hopefully be successful together
Account Manager/ Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 November 2016
Nice group to work for. Co-workers were all great people. The hardest part of the job was learning the different systems they have in place, and the corporate chain of command. Not much training at the local level. Overall, a great experience, from which I learned a great deal.
HET Technician 2 (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 1 November 2016
All in all a good company to work for, hard to have much life outside of work if you're in a service truck though. Only real downsides are the regular miss communication you get with a company this size.
Took everything i could give, then cut me loose (diversity)
Manager (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 24 October 2016
Hours of employment where fair time for family given excellent benefits and fellow employees .Gave them everything I had moved about company as asked ,when things got tight they no longer needed me and cut me .
Class 1 Driver (Former Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 12 October 2016
Go go go, but do it safe!! Also don't forget everything you do is on a performance timer/gps, so do it fast. Sometimes rush things too much and then punish us when we make little mistakes. Terrible dispatch, wrong addresses daily, wrong contact info given to drivers. Constantly sending tractor/trailer into areas that it shouldn't be going, no exit/no turn around residential areas when the job could have been done with a small truck. Good to get some experience under your belt and move on to a better place though.
A work day here was always well busy and always met lots of new faces, dealing with the public in customer service and loading/unloading trucks and trailers. I learned a lot about how genie booms work as well as skid steers, jackhammers, plate dampers, concrete saws, pumps work. I cleaned and maintained a lot of the machinery on a daily basis, as when everything came back from being rented it needed to be cleaned and re inspected. my co workers were all friendly and easy to get along with and be part of a team.
Avoid United with the current econmic outlook they are on a downward spiral at the present time.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 July 2016
Co workers were fine, management wants brown nosers. if your not you will never get anywhere. Very numbers orientated company. management are a different class they treat workers in operations i.e the people who actually do the work like drivers techs ect like lower class citizens. always favour there own people and put people into positions without them having the proper qualifications. my operations manager was a joke. its all in who you know. will never work for a equipment rental company again. they pride themselves in having better customer service, better equipment and better trained employees than the completion and there prices are ridiculous. complete rubbish . Avoid for the time being. no job security they have bought out a lot of smaller companies and have gotten too big now there is a downwards trend and are on there knees with there huge overheads and corporate heavy managers.
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 June 2016
This position is not for everyone, it's great for some, and not for others. decent benefits, no work life balance. hourly employees have 24 hour cell phones. if you answer and start working on a weekend, you may not be paid for that time
monday to friday
too many cons. negative people, stressful for no reason, people love to pass things off to others
