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

Pros
Good pay, Sick days, Free coffee

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

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

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 .

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

The management are a club that single out slaves (workers) and use bullying as a strong way to control the workers. If you like being constantly stressed out and enjoy bringing your work home then this is for you! The dispatchers belittle the drivers, the management is made up of personnel that have never done the positions they manage and got the job from being in the boys club. Firing single parents and promoting incompetent high school dropouts

Typical day at United Rentals was fun, great environment to be in. If you're in the propane business or just starting, i would recommend giving United Rentals a try

Work at your own pace but get the work done in a timely manner. Order own parts, try not to order the wrong ones. All different equipment from small waterpumps and construction equipment to large equipment like fork lifts, telehandlers, skid steers and personel lifts(man-lifts and sissor lifts)

They hired me as a driver, yet they made me clean garbages and sweep the shop floor for first month. They present themselves as a large company which has lots of oppurtuniites to grow but they really do not. They are cheapest company I have worked for and shove saftey down your throat to protect there own self interest. At the end of the day, they do not care about your saftey at all. Training took about a month and I kearned nothing. They are constantly changing everything you do on a daily basis so do not think about making a schedule. I do not have anything postive to say about this company. The managment is very consending and it is the worst company ihave ever worked for.

As a driver you need to start early and on average you can work 10 + hours, It is a fast pace job where you feel like your always playing catch up but can also be rewarding when a customer is happy and compliments your work.

You work hard to get nothing. If you make a mistake because no one helps you when you ask... Terminated. Unless you already know people higher up don't work for them.

Easy work, good hourly wage, but they'll promise you raises and bonuses that you won't see, this company is way to top heavy, mangers that have no idea what there doing, and act like there God, it's all about them....get everything in writing.
