Poor Management
Store Clerk (Former Employee) –  Idaho Falls, IDDecember 12, 2017
The job itself was great. Management was horrible, very sexist and on a "friends get things" basis. If you are not in the club you are treated very poorly, taken advantage of and not included.
Pros
Customers were a pleasure to work with
Cons
management and treatment of employees/coworkers

Frustrating environment with unhappy employees and high turnover.
Industrial Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Keyport, NJNovember 28, 2017
Rain For Rent is a 4th generation family owned business. The owners are vary egotistical and arrogant. They are very hypocritical and think they motivate people by creating a overly competitive atmosphere between the 60 company branches and also between the managers at each of these branches. The branches do not work together well. Everything is dysfunctional.

Since it is primarily a rental company and equipment inventory is stationed in branches all over the country, the fact that they create this highly competitive climate and also they are not willing to purchase new equipment or enough equipment or maintain the equipment to the level required to properly service their customers, the entire rental system suffers from many challenges because the equipment is too old, or it is not at the right branch that needs it and the cost of moving the needed equipment from branch to branch makes them not competitive with other companies that have better maintained equipment and competitors that are better stocked to meet customer needs.

The company has a terrible CRM and quote system. Quotes take too long to reach the customer. It is a very difficult company to do business with. Employees are unhappy. Turnover in the field operations department is horrendous.

The company does many things and but doesn't do anything particularly well when it is compared with its primary competition.
Pros
The owners have a lot of money, so in spite of its problems the company is not going to go out of business anytime soon.
Cons
unhappy work environment with high turnover. Management doesn't listen.

Productive and fast paced, good hours but not much balance between work and life
Installer (Current Employee) –  Midland, TXNovember 14, 2017
Can get good hours but may not have a lot of time off. It's good pay and the opportunity to move up. Can be pretty hectic at times and not a lot of training or clear direction.

Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Gillette, WYSeptember 28, 2017
Not a good company to work for if you are any kind of management. Don't get too comfortable with your pay, it could be cut at any time for any reason they see fit.

No direction on what they wanted out of employees.
Industrial Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVSeptember 19, 2017
Lack of sales management left all sales staff all for their own and competing for the same projects and competing against each other instead of competing against the competition.

Good Company
Installer (Former Employee) –  AZJuly 31, 2017
Good group of workers. The guys are solid and easy to get along with. Management needed some help in my opinion. Be ready to leave at a moment's notice to an out of town job and get stuck longer than expected. Also be ready to never get off on time. This is a work till it's done company even if the job takes 20+ hours. Tough to have a family and work like that. I've worked 4 weeks on 2 weeks off for other companies and that was an easier balance of home life. Your on call once a month for 7 days. All that being said, the overtime money is good, but they might also cut you at 40 hours. Meaning if you busted out a 20 hour day, you may not reap any overtime which is disheartening because you put that time in. Like I said, the guys to your left and right are solid and make it worth it. But the other stuff might get to you in the end.
Pros
Good group of guys and the possibility of good money
Cons
Management, work hard for little benefit

Installer (Current Employee) –  Kenedy, TXJune 4, 2017
Everyday in the Morning we would clock in fir the day and everything was on a big white board that explained your daily task and what crew you were going to work with, the management was good, the communication could be better. We would work long manual labor hours over 100+
