Territory Sales (Current Employee), Western US – May 20, 2014
Pros: get to wear jeans to work.
Cons: management, benefits, overall culture.
If I had gotten any of this vibe from them in the interview process, ?I would have run for cover. Other negatives have been the double talk from upper management leading employees to be unable to make certain decisions that in other companies in the same industry weren't even thought through, just made. Benefits have become a joke since the new plans – more... rolled out for 2014. – less

Pros: management that understands the business. opportunity for growth. great health benefits.
H&E is ran by equipment people, not the standard 'number crunchers' you find with some of the other big-box corporate rental companies.

Pros: good staff at branch level.
Cons: corporate structure
A rental focus with a dealer structure makes for difficult dealings at the top that flow all the way through to the branch level. It is a work in progress though and I feel that necessary changes are being made for growth.
