Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 23 August 2018
i learned how to deal with customers in rush hours because in the end of the people move their residential place and most of them need trucks on rent for moving. during that time we need lot of patience to deal with angry customers.
Facility Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Greater Toronto Area, ON – 31 July 2018
This is a good place to work, if a person will work hard. and there is plenty of experience that a person will gain. There is a lot of room for personal development and the company recognizes individual effort and accomplishments
Receptionist (Current Employee) – Boisbriand, QC – 30 July 2018
U-Haul est une grosse entreprise qui connait quelques problèmes au niveau du "management", donc il est difficile pour les employés de bien effectuer leur travail si le gérant n'a pas les compétences pour gérer un centre aussi gros. L'ambiance est agréable entre les employés.
Reservation Clerk (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 24 July 2018
Reservation clerk needs to deal with all angry customers,company dealers and customer support team. There was no motivation from Management. Actually, There is no management. They will pay us minimum wages. This job will disturb your work-life balance. every day you will hear excessive use of abusing words from disturb customers. even you know that customer is right, you have to protect company policy. Uhaul needs to pay at least 18$ per hour. You will be a trainee Reservation clerk(even after 1-2 year of work). There was nothing enjoyable part in this job.
Sales Clerk (Former Employee) – Meadow Lake, SK – 22 June 2018
their pay sucks for dealers. you get deal with rude people all day (8/10 times) and you don't even get minimum wage. You also never got reimbursed for any work you got done and paid out of pocket for when their trucks or trailers broke down.
Project tech (Former Employee) – Here – 14 June 2018
Worked for uhaul for 10 months and never received benefits. Was putting in full time hours and was still down as a moon lighter. Promise after promise. Just a number there. Used personal things to do the work.
Head Storage Facility Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 28 May 2018
Overall, working for Uhaul has been nothing but wonderful. Management is very flexible and considerate to my busy mom life. She appreciates and acknowledges the work I do for the company and is sadden by the fact I have to move on. For nothing more will come out of working as a storage facility housekeeper.
Ubox Customer Care Representative (Current Employee) – Lachine, QC – 24 May 2018
Not made for someone that has a small family. Made for retired and students. We are overwhelmed. We work for a 5 person Job when we actually need more people paid minimum wage while else where they are paid more.
There was no typical day, every day presented a new challenge. I learnt how to operate new equipment and pushed to harness my skills. Some of the management seemed more interested in getting their bonuses then putting money back into the company. Workplace culture was pleasant over all though there seemed to be a lot of Favoritism towards certain employees. Hardest part of the job was dealing with the constant corner cutting which went against my own personal beliefs! Do it once and do it right thus saving money long term! Most enjoyable part of the job was the variety of work, flexibility with work hours and not always having your supervisor looking over your shoulder.
Flexibility with work hours
Having to bring your personal tools to do jobs for company
high pace, work on call 24/7, good but not good enough pay
Area Field Manager (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 April 2018
job is sporadic at best, you have your daily tasks to complete but at the same time you're thrown a million other tasks as every other department needs stuff done. any other manager would have support from their head office but because i'm the only system member 6 hours away it gets pretty difficult to get any sort of support. job pays well but with the amount of stuff we have to go through it could pay better. you literally have no social life as your work phone becomes your life and it never stops ringing. all in all it's a decent job, just needs some fine tuning and revisions from middle management
lots of travel, work my own hours, decent pay
middle management, days can stretch up to 18 hour days. on call 24/7
