Service Representative (Former Employee) – Bellingham, WA – July 17, 2017
Great place, preform preventative maintenance on equipment, assist customers, learned to use supply/ equipment catalogs to order replacement parts from companies statewide and internationally and proper purchasing procedures, most enjoyable part was working by myself completing projects.
Great team to work with not only at my location but company wide as well. The opportunity for advancement is talked about constantly and your development plan is designed to get you ready for the next position you want to move into.
Service Manager (Former Employee) – Bullhead City, AZ – July 11, 2017
got along great with all employees there. the pay and benefits were great. hardest part was being so busy trying to schedule repairs, it got a little stressful. I was laid off when our biggest customer closed. which made me feel betrayed because they didn't even offer me something somewhere else even in a different position.
typical material handling work day, multitude of skills, management is decent, workplace culture was perfect, hardest part of the job was the poor management, dealing with the customers was the best part of the job
Service Technician (Former Employee) – Moses Lake, WA – July 10, 2017
If you want to completely give up you personal life to a dead end job this is for you! Having to risk your safety for low pay is also a huge thing with this company. Half the time you are just winging it and not following processes. Only reason this company is so profitable is because of the slave wages.
Inventory/Purchasing Specialist (Former Employee) – East Chicago, IN – July 7, 2017
I loved working for United Rentals, Inc., the people are great, hours are flexible and management is fair. I was always busy, made the day go by, sometimes too busy to complete my daily requirements. I loved the work and people.
Fortune 500 Company and North American Leader (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – June 21, 2017
A Manager is not automatically a Leader. Many other Mangers I worked with were fantastic. Senior leaders were people that you could not trust. The Branch Employees are fantastic, hard-working people. Can be a great place to work as long as a senior leader does not put you in his cross-hairs. Best of luck with URI.
Service Technician and Installer (Current Employee) – Cathedral City, CA – June 18, 2017

Sales, Maintenance, Driving (Former Employee) – North Las Vegas, NV – June 15, 2017
Everything depends on the local construction industry. If the industry is booming, United Rentals is booming. When the industry slows down, UR slows down. UR mostly consists of Salesmen, mechanics and drivers.
Benefits, free food, coworkers
long hours, busy environment, meeting demands for customers.
Service Tech II (Current Employee) – Freeport, TX – June 12, 2017
Enjoy working here but no room for advancement unless you apply for and get a position at another location. Work is steady and rotating on call isn't too bad. Its cool having something different everyday to do or deal with as far as equipment. Keeps it interesting and always something new to learn.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – May 30, 2017
United Rentals has prepared me for any sales/customer support job that I am faced with, developing the skills to handle any urgent matter under a small amount of time. The name "United Rentals" naturally places a target on your back,(and in most cases a decal on the side of your vehicle) promoting the company as an everyday lifestyle. Because of this huge target, it has helped me build a great deal of discipline and self-accountability at work and in my personal life. Greatest company to start small and grow big.
