United Rentals provides construction support for equipment and tool rentals, power and HVAC division, as well as selling new and used tools and equipment. They also offer hands-on and online safety training for individuals and groups, on site or classroom, with a vast selection of courses provided by their own training professionals.
“This year is fantastic in the construction industry,” says Jason Morris. “It is very busy, and we have recently hired extra staff.”
There are 12 United Rentals locations across the Maritimes. On PEI, six local employees work at the store full time, year round. The Manager overseeing the Charlottetown location works from the Moncton branch.
In Charlottetown, an Operations Manager looks after the day-to-day operations. An Inside Sales Rep works at the desk and handles phone calls, internal sales and requests, safety meetings and scheduling, and dispatching for deliveries and equipment transfers. A Technician looks after the equipment fleet and customer owned equipment. United Rentals provides 24/7 service to suit customer schedules and needs.
“The store in Charlottetown just went through almost a complete transition, due to retirement and an unfortunate illness of one of our longest serving employees. Within the last few months, we have hired a new Location Manager, a Technician, and an Inside Sales Rep. A new Truck Driver will start soon as well.
“One of the most challenging positions to fill is Inside Sales. It is a busy atmosphere with many phone calls and lots of traffic in and out. It is a lot of responsibility, but it is rewarding job, and they are very well trained and are well supported to do the job. Prior knowledge of equipment does help, but we take care of training for all our new employees, which allows for advancement within the company.
“We are always open to talking with people looking for new opportunities. To apply, visit the company website. We accept instore applications, but you will be contacted and asked to apply online.”
