Featured Review

Current Employee - District Manager

I have been working at United Rentals full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

After 12 years I continue to be amazed by this organization. Hurricane Ida devastated Louisiana and left many team members in need of some basic necessities such as food, clothing, and shelter.... United Rentals quickly provided many team members with grants that allowed them to purchase these basic necessities. Many homes were damaged and left uninhabitable - UR provided campers that accommodated entire families at no cost to team members. The United family sent canned goods and household supplies from across the country – enough that there was a pantry setup for all team members that had a need to get free food and groceries. Showers and laundry trailers were also made available to team members free of charge. While all this was amazing and much appreciated, what really exemplified United Rental’s culture was the team members that came in from across the country to help. Boots on the ground, taking care of people they had never met before but that didn’t matter, all that mattered was that we all belonged to the same family. The United Rental’s family! I was taken back by how many team members were so willing to give up their time to help those in need. That’s family, that’s culture, that’s UNITED RENTALS!!

Cons

I haven't been able to meet all my family members - it's a big family.

Former Intern - File Clerk

I worked at Progressive Waste for less than a year

Pros

Everyone I met and worked with here was very friendly and helpful. The higher ups showed respect and gave me a lot of insight during the time I worked there.

Cons

The office I worked at was next to the garbage dump so occasionally it would smell a little bad.
