Summary of a day in the life of the United Rentals employee
Heavy Duty Technician (Current Employee), Fort McMurrayJuly 9, 2014
Pros: great safety/team environment
Cons: pay is not the greatest by area comparisons.
To be honest, I love working for United Rentals. My location has a great team of co-workers. They are people I can trust, and rely on in several areas of my eternal career advancement. If it were not for them, I would not have successfully advanced into my Heavy Duty apprenticeship. I would not have had exposure to new challenges with different equipment. – more... And I would not have been able to sharpen my skills without their support network of training course (in person and on-line)

Sadly, the hardest part of my job is the slow state of this season. I'm not the type of employee to sit still and twiddle my thumbs. I eventually get antsy and uncomfortable from sitting idle for too long (typically around 10mins). I have to be doing something. If not working on equipment, organizing paper work, or cleaning my bay/tools. Or helping new apprentices overcome their challenges (if they want it). Some view this as impatience, or "brown nosing". Others are offended and say things like "you're making others look bad". It is not my intention…… And have to learn to follow everyone else's pace. – less

Great place to learn new accounting skills
Office (Former Employee), Dunville, NL.April 20, 2013
Pros: challenging position where i learned many new skills.
Cons: disgruntal manager.
Typical day was renting out equipment for contractors or individuals. I learned all aspects of accounting, which I find very interesting and definitely challenging. Management was poor, co-workes were great people to work with. Hardest part of this job was been able to please the manager, and the most enjoyable was different things I learned on the – more... job. – less

Just a number
Service Manager (Former Employee), Burnaby BCJune 13, 2012
Pros: learning lots
Cons: no backbone in managment
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 – more... number orientated company and expect you to get them by whatever means. – less

Your life hangs in limbo everyday
Sales and Operations (Current Employee), lauderhill, FlSeptember 23, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits and fellow employees
Cons: you are 24/7, no matter how hard you try it will never measure up to the managers standards.
Forget it. Unless there is nowhere else to go I would stay away.
The pay is very good as are the benefits.
This particular branch will make you physically ill.

Would rather clean the bathrooms
Credit Analyst (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: the end of the day
Cons: everything
If you are working for the Credit Department...then you might as well go clean a nasty, dirty, stanky bathroom. The management is terrible....the job is boring...there are no real incentives...and no real purpose for any job satisfaction. Again, at least with cleaning a bathroom...you can get some satisfaction that you accomplished something.

Working with friends....
Credit Service Representative (Former Employee), Modesto, CAAugust 31, 2014
Pros: monthly lunch with management
Cons: office dissolved...moved operations to east coast.
All co-workers grew close to each other and we became a huge extended family. My most enjoyable part of the job was end of the month employee recognition meetings. We as a group recognized each other and congratulated the co-workers that achieved the highest performances of the past month. Management was very understanding and always had our backs.
