"Well let's talk about the most unprofessional companies out there! Who tops the list?? The White River Junction VT branch of this company! After almost a year of my husband struggling to acquire employment with this company they not only failed to notify him of his non-acceptance but you'll love the reasons!! With almost 30 years spent behind the wheel of a tractor trailer having hauled hazardous materials safely and efficiently for all of those years they chose to pass him up. Why do you ask? The manager decided that the company would be better suited to hire a driver for the position that was young with virtually no driving history. He chose to hire this individual because he "could pay the young guy less money". Now I know that sometimes job positions pass you up, and that's just the luck of the draw. In September 2015 the manager told my husband he had a driver position opening up and he wanted my husband to fill that spot. It is no wonder that the world is as corrupt as it is when management of companies like this not only deliberately and cold heartedly fill people with false hope only to stab people in the back with not even a reply email after having sent at least a dozen inquiring as to the status of his application. I advise you folks stay away from this company at all costs!"

"Some United Rentals branches have more maintenance personnel than required. Other branches go understaffed for years. This is based on the flawed business metric they continue to use as a cookie cutter model for every branch. Branches with large ariel equipment have a lot of mechanics and less equipment because the equipment is worth a lot of money. Mechanics at other branches are few in numbers (sometimes only 2 or 3) but have hundreds of pieces of less valuable equipment to maintain. These branches can't afford to hire personnel in lower paying job titles so the mechanics are then used as equipment associates & customer service - not preforming what they were hired to do. Which results in equipment not getting fixed in a timely manner."
