Admin Officer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 January 2019
Unstable company that has changed names and at risk for going under. Other USA Companies are coming in providing better service. Management is who you know and if your their friend. Low moral and not much for staff appreciation at all. I WATCHED them call cabs and send 50+ staff home during two rounds of lay offs.
Sales & Operations Coordinator (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 6 January 2019
Herc Rentals has a good career path for anyone how is interested in working with heavy equipment. They will show you how to build rental agreements intended for Herc Standards. This job is hands on, and requires a lot of organization for planning deliveries and returns. We use Rentalman that allows our team to structure our days. Completing reports is a constant daily practice with team building. Depending on the season it's an extremely busy environment. The hardest part would be situations when someone is directed to do a task. Then if the information provided has been incorrect and you do not have proof. Colleagues have been penalized for misconduct. Having paper trails to any on-going project is critical to succeed with Herc.
It was a great place to work but now it’s horrible
Mechanic (Current Employee) – Alberta – 5 January 2019
Great benefits, great wage, but not worth the abuse from management. Most of my co-workers are awesome but the key people you need to rely upon are two faced, liars,vindictive, abusive but the few that are decent people they most likely get “restructured” out of a job or bail before it happens. It’s too bad because it was a great place to work, but those days are over.
admin (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB (Albian) – 4 January 2019
salary is good but lack of support from management when you
need them the most. no job security, politics. it has become a family club, if you're not part of it you'll suffer but if your part or friends you're ok but as soon as you turn your back they will talk.
Field and Shop Technician (Former Employee) – Fort Mc Murray AB Canada – 19 October 2018
The Fort Mac region upper management is a tight knit club of family and favorites .... if your part of that club you are set, if not you will never advance , or if your actively involved in the union , they hate that and you will never advance either,
Working at the town shop is a little more forgiving you can advance based on merit , and its a good crew of guys the camps and remote site management are far more involved in favoritism
AZ Driver (Former Employee) – Goderich, ON – 4 September 2018
Was a good place to work but had a poor manager at my local branch. Good pay good benifits and great people to work with. Manager pretty made it a tough place to work with his comments and stressful attitude.

Trip Leader (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 25 March 2017
It can be a great place to work. Many opportunities for advancement. Their management package is amazing. Very little supervision and good employee benefits. It's a unionized environment as well. Weekly pay what more can I say?
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 March 2017
It's the number one company in Canada and has the best benefits. it also has many other perks, such as the salary, fun environment, and safest company to work with. They are the best when regarding your safety.
Safety (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 February 2017
Overall good company to work for, great benefits and paid sick time. Good salaries. Great tuition reimbursement program.
No place to advance if you are entry level. Continually restructuring and redoing all their programs so no job security. The corporate staff is all the same people that get shuffled around, so management is very poor and a clic type place. No work/life balance, they expect you to work all the time with no overtime pay if you are salary.
