Senior Credit Service Representative (Former Employee), Sugar Land, TXJuly 30, 2013
Pros: good medical benefits
Cons: office closure
A steady work load that keeps you busy, but great for making the day pass by quickly. I enjoyed working with my co-workers we were like a family because we spent so much time together. For the most part I liked the management staff. The hardest part of the job was when you had a client who you knew was having a rough time because of the economy and – more... they had to close their doors. I think the most enjoyable part for me was the coming together of the team to exceed the challenges that were placed before us. – less

Mechanic (Current Employee), Port Arthur, TexasJuly 29, 2013
Cons: low pay
If you work to hard for this company you will work yourself out of a job. So don't perform more than what is expected of you because if you do you will get taken advantage of.

Credit Collection Analyst/Account Manager (Former Employee), Sugar Land, TXJune 27, 2013
A typical day at work was quite, extremely busy and pleasant. I learned to manage my time to be more efficient. My co-workers were fun to work with. Because I enjoyed my job, I really didn’t have a hard part, well maybe on the 15th doing the Texas lien notices. The most enjoyable part was, making my collection calls with the customers and successfully – more... getting a payment. – less

Since the merger, There has been a total Management break down I have seen person after person come and go since then, In my shop alone we have had 75 years of combined experience walk out. More are planning on leaving until it will be a 100% R.S.C. staff. Almost the entire original United Rentals staff has left in many locations. Our sales territory has been cut severely by other NOW United Rentals stores causing in depleting profit margins.

Very Strong Company to Work For.
Outside Sales Representative (Current Employee), North West TerritoryMarch 10, 2013
Pros: good company overall
Cons: sales staff is forced to do work that the operations staff should handle.
I have enjoyed my time at United Rentals. It is a strong company that trains well and allows for growth. Working for such a large company is both a great advantage and disadvantage. You are apart of a huge team with lots of resources and have all the opportunity you need to get ahead. It is very much a corporate world and doing what is best for the – more... company will be words you live by. You have to be able to let some good ideas go by the wayside and try not to get discouraged when the smart easy decisions aren't made. The benefits are very good; they were better but with the way things are going the medical coverage is reducing and premiums are getting higher, but all and all very good insurance. As an OSR I was fairly happy; branch closures and territory changes is what lead to my eventual departure. – less
