Rental Management Trainee (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – May 14, 2012
At Penske, you are offered a fast paced work environment with long hours which is great for hourly employees. In some cases, care for employees comes into question. Excellent training for a young professional
Bilingual Seasonal Rental Representative (Former Employee) – Eugene, OR – October 13, 2016
Work in Penske is a fun place to be, I recommend to any one. I just to driver deliver some truck to different places in Eugene agents, some time i have to pick up truck with a trailer and drop both units.
The pay was good enough, and the job was a challenge which I enjoyed. The biggest flaw for me was the lack of advancement at the time. No one in the district wanted to move or even apply for other positions, so I was stuck with nowhere to go but out. I did apply and interview with many locations all over the country, only to find that they were always planning to promote their local rep no matter what. Also, rather than firing poor managers, they tended to transfer them around to fail elsewhere which made no sense to me.
Challenging Coordination of Equipment, Pay is Comparable to Industry Standards
Lack of Opportunity Due to Lack of Accountability for Previously Promoted Employees
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Princeton In – October 11, 2016
I worked for Penske Logistics for 3 years and was terminated for one accident and tried to talk to field rep from human resource and could not convince him of what is happening in the office with the way the Operations people talk to the drivers if you have one minor accident you are terminated think twice about working for these people
I would like to thanks my previous company and my stuff who has given me a good support & I have learned lots from my previous company & now is a great opportunity to move forward & get good growth of my career!

They promise you the world that you will never see. The $80,000 they advertise is completely fake. If you want a job where you have no personal life this is the place for you. You're either working 15 hours a day or 4. It averages out to about $16 an hour don't fall for what they tell you.

Manager of Rental Operations (Current Employee) – Bridgeport, NJ – September 25, 2016
a typical day at work is usually comprised of multi tasking due to taking care of customer needs as well as ensuring your assets are properly taken care of and maintained in order to ensure a quality vehicle that can produce as much revenue as possible because if it is not creating revenue it is only incurring a depreciating expense for every second the asset is not being used. I have learned how to run a business and what it takes to work with a team in a way that makes sure everyone is on the same page because in the end our job is to take care of the person, and help them, whether its a household customer or our biggest commercial customer. Most importantly is that we need to make sure we provide the customer with an exceptional customer experience with Penske. The hardest part of my job is the logistics of procuring certain assets as efficiently as possible in order to ensure the customer is taken care of. the most enjoyable part of my day is when we come through for the customer by providing a solution that makes the customer's day better, because that is what it's all about.
benefits and opportunity to grow as well as our human capital
