Not a good place to work
Supervisor (Former Employee), Brownstown, MIFebruary 17, 2015
Pros: employee discounts are the only good thing about this company.
Cons: low pay, no job security, poor healthcare coverage with high out of pocket costs, no work/life balance, no sick pay without fear of losing job, unrealistic work load, no room for advancement, no raises
The company operates by individual locations, that are shut down often. There is no guaranteed job placement when locations are shut down. Senior Operations Managers run each location, we had several in a three year period. Which meant different rules/procedures of running production each time there was a change in management. This lead to chaos management. Our last Senior Operations Manager was a joke and spent more time talking himself out of trouble instead of making sure the location was being run properly and efficiently, including making sure supervisors were doing what they were supposed to be doing.
No work/life balance. I was on call 24/7 even taking calls during my vacation time. The company has outdated policies and culture. Sick pay is not a benefit because points come with using sick time and you could be fired because of the point system used. They do not believe in working from home yet you are expected to answer your phone day or night and come in to work if you cannot solve a problem over the phone. We were often called in last minute during our off days to sub for other supervisors because the Senior Operations Manager forgot to cover the shift before hand. Raises are non existent and the pension plan offered is mediocre.

simple work low pay
Diesel Mechanic (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, COFebruary 12, 2015
Pros: easy work not to many hard jobs just your basic mechanic work
Cons: second shift and pay
Worked second shift and for family life there is not any time for family. The management will try and save pennies when spending a dime. They cut corners even on shift pay if you are not there that day or at training they do not pay shift pay. They also when you work Saturday you do not get shift pay.

Never again
Material Coordinator (Former Employee), sharonville OhioFebruary 11, 2015
Pros: gainful experience on what not to do
Cons: everything
The work day consisted of chaos with no direction nor a desire from management to fix the issues creating the chaos. My co-workers were for the most part unpleasant. The most enjoyable part of this job was leaving.

Great culture with a good Sales & Management Trainee program
Sales&Management Trainee Program, Rental Sales Rep (Former Employee), San AntonioFebruary 2, 2015
Pros: great overall culture, work hard but also play hard, lots of team building meetings outside of work.
Cons: not the best benefits package.
Very demanding. Not a typical 40 hour work week. Weekends and nights are not uncommon.

I learned a lot from the management team and seasoned sales representatives.

The hardest part of the job is matching market demand with the finite supply.

Great first career oriented opportunity out of college.

They also recognize hard work and quality of work.

Senior Rental Representative (Current Employee), Gulf CoastFebruary 1, 2015
I learned a lot and the pay was not bad. However, the management constantly increased my workload and expectations without any kind of pay/benefit increase. The work is stressful and the appreciation is minimal.

When the production was finished we were able to have a little downtime and relax until the next truck came in. Then it was all about the safety and production.

Penske
Logistics Analyst (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: none.
Cons: cheap pay
Penske Logistics was great for awhile. They took advantage of skilled labor and payed very little for the market. You can learn alot but in the end your just a 3rd party employee. Never really apart of the corporate culture. Just a limb that will be left to atrophy in the end,

Think Twice, Horrible Management, Driver Work Relation
Trailer driver (Former Employee), White Marsh, MDJanuary 19, 2015
Cons: everything
Beware!!!! Worked here for a few years. When given a raise, something was always taken back, so it was not a raise. 70 hour work week, for 40 hours of pay. Terrible communication between driver and management. After one month, still waiting for final wages and accumulated vacation. It's activity based pay, lot of free time given to company without pay. Some days, paid under state minimum wage. This company should be ashamed of what they are paying their drivers. Even a single guy, can't survive on this salary.
