I did enjoyed working there, but miss-communication was an issue at times. The other personnel were good people and easy to work with for the most part.

Lack of real leadership. Regional management was horrible.

as a employee here started out great lots of hrs , then when its wild crazy hrs its all about the money being pushed to run all day and all night running the hwys getting jobs complete not really a safe way to do things field mechanics are pushed beyond whats safe , then when advancement oppurtunity come along , if you have what it takes dont think you have it cause management pick the bottom . for example you can have 25yr experience in what they want but they will pick the person with the less exp and the person thats no one likes .working here you just become a number bottom line .

Rental Sales Rep (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKFebruary 1, 2017
Learned that I understand and work with the construction industry very well.

Hardest part of the job was price cutting by competitors.

Most enjoyable part of the job was watching my equipment being loaded onto a job site.

Workplace culture was like a family for five years.

New management made a lot of changes and people started leaving.
Pros
Commission, team that cared and performed
Cons
Changing Management

Don't trust management
Shop Technician (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJanuary 2, 2017
This was a great place to work for. Once they opened the new facility and moved into it, the environment changed. I have seen great people loose their jobs while people who don't deserve to work there are still employed. There have been no raises, even though the management and supervisors continue to receive their bonuses. Then if you happen to have an accident, the management will go out of its way to find a reason to blame you for it, instead of their procedures.
Pros
New facilty
Cons
Back stabbing management

Horrible Company
Manager (Former Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LADecember 12, 2016
This company claims to be a company that cares about their employees and offers a quality place to work. It could not be further from the truth, well at least in IT.
The dictatorship is alive and well. They don't want you opinion and don't dare try to put it out there. You will be fire for "performance issues" however, you're never told what those specific performance issues are.
If you don't think like they do they'll just throw you out.
Pros
ZERO Pros at this company
Cons
No trust of employees. Run like a dictatorship. Mid-level managers are jerks.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Whether in New York or ......November 6, 2016
I think the employee should be treated mediocrity that is not so
  Why do you harness it and be stern with the mold empty and lost.
And benefits to the employees was not so rated or praised
  Who loses himself.
Pros
ok very good
Cons
ok very good

Decent Company
Outside Sales (Former Employee) –  United StatesNovember 2, 2016
My opinion is stay far away from this company! From my experience they will hire just about anyone ( management wise ) just to put a body there to run the store. Some upper management is decent but for the most part they are nowhere to be found when something arises. If you are looking for a great equipment company to work for I would try sunbelt or sunstate.
Pros
Company Truck and Phone
Cons
Upper Management

Rental Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Sulphur, LAOctober 24, 2016
First story heard is the one they believe. Favoritism is highly abused. Favorites are not disiplined while others are highly judged and penalized.

Yard Technician (Current Employee) –  Grand Prairie, TXOctober 21, 2016
a typical day is required by organizing the yard and preparing for the day. In this position you are limited in what you learn because of the influx of work that is required in the day. Management is hot and cold. The leads and supervise to the employees are easy to work with but upper management is another story. They care less about the employee and more about prophet. They talk down to you then at you. The hardest part of the day is when we prepare for the next day. Everything comes out at the same time. The most enjoyable part of the job is quitting time.

Good company with bad upper management.
Service Manager (Current Employee) –  El Cajon, CAOctober 17, 2016
Upper management typically will empower subordinates to be watch dogs over their direct management. It creates a culture that makes it virtually impossible to implement any change or to improve any process.

The employees actually believe that their managers will answer to them and they often do because upper management allows them to make private complaints without ever investigating the real problem which is, "I don't want my manager telling me what to do." - Employees

Upper management let's employees feel as though they are indispensable and cannot seem to figure out why they have a problem keeping managers on site.

The inmates run the asylum at H&E.
Pros
Good pay.
Cons
Insubordinate employees with terrible work ethic.
