Great benefits, great company

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
great place to start a career, Great benefits, decent pay, safety conscious environment, great people. There are so many equipment from different manufacturers to work on which is helpful in terms of experience. The pace could be super fast during the busy season.

Good place to work and get some solid experience, enjoying myself there, management is easy to deal with and job is easy to come into, no problems getting time off if needed and benefits and pay are good.


Enjoyable Workplace

Work environment is fun

There are pros and cons in working at united rentals. If company is doing bad, seen layoffs were coming, but if company was doing good, then we were safe.

Very depressing

Do not pay as agreed. Constant pushing no job security. HR will not talk to employees to give us awnsers as to why our income has been reduced. Very poor company to work for




Low pay

Great location to work, Management will smile in you Face and talk behind.

I worked a united rentals for a little over a year. In that time I had no safety violations of write ups of any kind. I got along with my dispatcher, supervisor and co-workers. I worked overtime when i was asked to did all my tasks. I had 1 incident JUST 1 and they fired me. First of all ive never been fired before and it is a horrible feeling. But in this situation. There was no chance to personally explain anything. The company felt that the camera footage was enough to terminate my employment without an me being able to speak to someone making decisions on the fate of my job. And this process took 2 stressful days in which i was not told of what was going on and honesty from management regarding the situation was absent. When applying for this position make sure you read and understand that you are basicly expected to be a robot and if you arent and you make a human mistake it could cost you your job. If you can manage corperate dog do-do this location is a good one to work at. Just watch your back around management because one day there may be a knife in it.


yeah free lunches...there way of trying to show they care


mindless management, no help, management over management

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

Run Away.

Too many chefs but no one knows how to cook. Meetings about meetings. Metrics Driven. It’s basically an acquisition company to make money for their investors and don’t really care about their client base especially small business or Film


I Left


Too many to list.

Great employees but management is poor

I liked working there at first but that didn'tlast too long, good thing the drivers were nice. they say they like to people go up in the company but if they already have someone in mind for a position, they'll still make you waste your time on tests. Too many bosses.

No help from upper management

Always under stress they threaten your job,very high turnover in management ,they have no loyalty to there workers unless you suck up to management at branch level and upper , most times employees are looking for other employment . Management feels like United is the only game in town and insists that employees bad mouth other rental company's in the area and feel if they can take employees from other company's with not intention of keeping those employees long term


Not many but work boots and stress


Being oncall as punishmint

Good management, employees where always helpful when I needed advice

Good work/life balance schedule. Employees where helpful. As a class 1 driver some delivery’s didn’t go so good then your pressed for time.Didn’t like the biometric finger printing time clock Sometimes hydraulic equipment didn’t work property eg. winch.


Good work life balance decent pay


Sometimes poor planning for pickup and delivery’s

You are just a number

Upper management dictates goals that are near impossible to achieve. Hard to advance if you don't hit it off with certain people. Company is American and most of the programs and goals are U.S. related, it is like Canada is an afterthought.


Good benefits. RRSP match


Expected to just shut up and follow orders

Choose the right location

Overall very tiring days and very unappreciative attitude from the staff toward other workers. They care about how fast the work is done, but the collaboration to make it happen is not there. Left on your own to figure it out most of the time. Dangerous environment and bypassed security procedures could leave you dead at the end of the day Choose the right location


Good pay, Sick days, Free coffee


Long hours, Weekend over-time, Un-collaborative staff, Behavioral issues on the work place

United rentals kamloops

Amazing place to work. All around great guys, always willing to go above and beyond for coworkers and customers. I've learned alot from them while working there. Unfortunate things happen but would always go back to work for them if the opportunity came

Large company

Large rental company with many branches. Good teamwork employer. Large variety of equipment to learn about. Good opportunity for training in many locations.

Didn’t hate it

I was lucky enough to have a great branch manager that offset the company. Pay was decent enough, but zero training and a broken apprenticeship system. I spent 3 years as a first year apprentice .

Succursale mal gérée

Manque de structure , manque d’employés, manque d’organisation par le superviseur et le BM . Toujours sur le stress a une vitesse accélérée, la paye et les avantages sont leurs seul force a leur succursale de pointe claire étançonnement

Excellent opportunity

Very well organized company, management goes over and above expectations, look after their employees to ensure everyone gets home safe. Making ungrounds around the north where competition is strong
