Heating Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 8 February 2018
They really hooked it up again with the job. We started out at the cold lake air weapons range and that was my first out of town experience. The company is owned by polish and they tend to keep their kind around. Some of them are very stubborn, but if you do your job and keep to yourself then you’re laughing!!
Driver/Delivery (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray district – 7 December 2017
United rentals does not pay OVERTIME!!! They pay on a compressed work week witch means they only pay straight time. No overtime pay. Drivers in the Fort Mcmurry district can make more money working at McDonald's. Heard they might unionize tho witch would be a plus.

Unique/ interesting line of work, always changing, fast paced
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Brantford, ON – 17 May 2017
United Rentals provided a unique line of work in the Trench Safety Division.
A typical day was utilized by taking rental orders, producing a paper contract, assembling the products and arranging truck dispatching to get product to site.
Answering all incoming calls and making follow up calls to customers and handling walk ins also filled the day.
Workplace culture is diverse and fun. the management has not been a very positive experience for me, as they did not manage to keep a branch manager for long while I was employed. I get along well with employees and is is fun to be at work most days.
The best part of the job is being involved in some very large project within the construction industry.
Equipment Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 4 May 2017
Work days were great hours. Work was relatively easy with some difficulties occasionally. Learned a substantial amount about how propane reacts and behaves and how to work with and service heaters. Hardest part of the job was moving heaters where they needed to be, often through deep snow or mud or both. most enjoyable part of the job was building friendships with the guys you work with.

Heavy Duty Mechanic (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 30 December 2016
management in most places of branches are not the greatest , the workers are fine but management is another story.They push to get equipment out the door even tho its not ready to go , they expect mechanics to say good to go when its not , then your putting your ticket on the line , there number 1 thing is make as much money as they can whatever the cost may be , be very carefull with them if you work with them .
