United Rentals Employee
in Milford, CT

"Sales guy knows they are not a sales company"

What do you like about working at United Rentals?

"They have issues with management at the top staying out of court with the SEC ( possible reflection of corporate ethics). They have little or no knowledge of sales and relationship building with customers. Can not deliver equipment on time, have no help for sales effort now you need to do every part of the transaction. They push for more sales but have no viable solution on how to get there since operations can not get the equipment. I think the company logo looks great"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Ask why every person at most levels are very frustrated withe the company, don't believe what I say, actually ride with a sales person see what they have to do to book a deal and then ask customers what the company image is. The Manchester location used to be a independent rental house with a great reputation. Now the location does almost no revenue. You figure it out and ask some of the previous customers and you will find they can not retain customers and the turn over is killing them that is why they always want more credit applications filled out so they can get new ones"

What don't you like about working at United Rentals?

"Most of the management people that I meet had big ideas on what to do but did not lead by example. they were obsesed with reports from the field but when you came up with an idea from your end there was not receptiveness to it"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Company could turn around if TOP managment could get the company to have quality equipment, delivered on time and in good condition 95% of the time. Just basics and actually listen to customers"
