Strong company to work for.
Sales and Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  MinnesotaJuly 17, 2018
High pressure, and they pay under average. Many initiatives pushed down from many divisions all to one manager, and the expectation is to satisfy all those demands. This is just not possible with the current structure.

Good place to make money. Lots of hours
Service Technician (Current Employee) –  PAJuly 15, 2018
Only drawback is management in the service dept. hours are crazy and your can’t work more than 60hrs a week. I haven’t worked any less than that as well. Overall a good company that cares about safety.
Pros
Pay, benefits
Cons
Big brother watching everything, GPS in trucks is annoying, Can’t let the truck idle with the AC on in 100* weather. They shut it down remotely and yell at you.

Being on Call
Commercial Driver (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJuly 15, 2018
If your willing to be on call at night or during the weekends then Sunbelt is where you want to be. They are a great company to work for and you can move up the chain of management after some years of experience. It's hard giving up time on your days off to go to work or worrying if you are going to be called in and you can't go out with friends or family. Sunbelt is very technical and very modern with websites and their app.
Pros
Rental Discount, Company Phone, Company Truck (salesman, managers, traveling positions)
Cons
Being on call 24/7, 365.

my experience as a mechanic
Mechanical Maintenance (Current Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCJuly 15, 2018
While I consider this job a good learning experience and like what I do, the company could invest in mechanics a little better. Turnover seems to be high.
Pros
Well-rounded experience in all types of equipment. Good cohesion with co-workers.
Cons
Being short-handed.

Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Washington StateJuly 11, 2018
Great managers... Poor leadership. Learned lots about doing what it takes to care for customers. Sunbelt has that part right. I believe a culture that focuses more on personal development and leadership would benefit the company like crazy.
Pros
There is lots of positions to lateral your way up the ladder.
Cons
Lack of leadership.

Accepted Mediocrity
Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 6, 2018
I was with Sunbelt for 6 years as an outside sales rep. In my first month I can remember thinking, "how does this company make money?"

Each store is "managed" by an individual that then hires all positions within the store. Sunbelt has 500 + stores nationwide. Each store is then as good as the person assigned as manager, and boy, they hire some doozies. Nepotism and the good ole boy network abound here.

Upper management is completely controlled through the same good ole boy network where you are either "in" or "out."

There is no true path to promotion or advancement because the folks above you aren't going anywhere and they will ignore any suggestions or attempts at improving their unorganized system.

There is no direction or accountability for the sales force and many reps just sleep walk through their employment.

Senior sales reps have seen a decline in compensation over the last 4 years through territory cuts and commission percentage changes.

The company is focused on profits and buying smaller equipment companies to add to an already dysfunctional organization.

I don't recommend employment here if you are looking for a career.
Pros
401 K after 1 year.
Cons
Almost everything

Pros
Good equal Co-workers
Cons
Horrible Managment

Not for a real driver
Class A Driver (Former Employee) –  Needham street houstonJune 8, 2018
Lots of problems it was like working with a bunch of high school girls. Constant crying about who should do the job. A good safety culture. Service manager was stealing fuel I reported it and nothing happened. Literally had him on video filling up his personal car but he was drunk and decided to drive to the facility and actually got demoted. Wish I could have seen his face when the slapped the cuffs on.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Big heartless company
