Our Culture

We have a passion for people

Investing in your future

At United Rentals, we believe that it takes great employees to build a great organization – and we’re passionate about helping our people grow professionally and embrace teamwork in everything they do. Our culture is based on our corporate values and centers on mutual respect, job satisfaction, diversity and a shared responsibility to build a better future. We believe in:

  • Hiring and retaining exceptional employees at every level
  • Providing training, development and career planning
  • Instilling the belief that our customers are key to our long-term success
  • Encouraging a strong sense of responsibility, involvement and commitment
  • Recognizing and rewarding both individual and team efforts

Safety is a Core Value

We’ve built a no-compromise approach to safe behavior. We have an award-winning safety program and are the industry leader in safety. We meet or exceed all local, state, national and Provincial laws and are continually looking for more effective ways to ensure safe operations.

Safety is always a #1 priority to United Rentals, but rather than mandating safety, we have changed into a Culture of Safety where employees look out for one another. Stretching, morning huddles and monthly safety meetings always educate teammates on a wide variety of topics. Our culture is something very many United Rental employees live by – they even take this culture home with them and share it with their families.

Since being hired, I have noticed United Rentals is a unified company and everyone is helpful. My Operations Manager is phenomenal, hardworking and positive. As a whole, I love everyone at our branch and company.

Committed to our communities

We build stronger communities by being among the first to respond to natural disasters and working diligently to ensure optimal emergency preparedness, as well as through countless construction, improvement and beautification projects across the U.S. and Canada.

We support families in need through Home Free and incredible organizations like Fisher House, as well as many other organizations that support veterans. We also support our own family through a 501(c)(3) Compassion Fund that is funded by employees for the benefit of United Rentals employees in need.

We protect the environment through our policies. From our systematic efforts to reduce engine idling, to the partnerships we have forged with vendors who recycle or reuse our IT equipment and used oil, we maintain our position as a responsible company. We have metrics in place to monitor our progress on our energy consumption, GHG emissions and materials recycled. Please see our Corporate Responsibility Report to learn more.

During my interview with the District Manager, he talked about the Compassion Fund. At that moment, I was sure that I wanted to work for United Rentals. If a company’s employees participate in something like that, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I am grateful I was chosen for my position and I’m glad I made the decision to come and work here.
