- Comrent International (Upper Marlboro, MD / United States)24.Nov 2015
Support from management
My main boss in Maryland was very supportive. The others in Chicago not so much. I was often left to fend for myself.
The other technicians there were all very supportive. If I needed help, they would always talk me through my technical issues
Freedom to work independently
I ran my own shop in the beginning, but toward the end the higher-ups in Chicago suddenly knew more than I did
ComRent is truly equal opportunity. They don't care about who you are, only how well you work and your work ethic.
You're not going anywhere at ComRent, forget promotions
Overall compensation for your work
I git good raises my first two years there...the next two years, absolutely nothing. If you do a good job you might be recognized, but once you max out your pay there's nowhere to go.
Office / Work Environment
No A/C in the summer, no heat in the winter
Always on call, I got tech support calls literally at all hours
Most techs that work at ComRent don't speak fondly of it.
If you do a halfway decent job there, there's virtually no way you'll get laid off. Security there is the one good factor about working at ComRent, they have lots of work and you won't get laid off
I never felt unsafe working there, and every concievable type of PPE was at my disposal but it was a physical job and just more dangerous than a desk job but not inordinately so
Same thing, day in and day out. Steessful schedule-sensitive work that's also boring. Ugh.
What I like about the company
Toward the end, very little
What I dislike about the company
Nowhere to go, zero recognition...it didn't used to be that way but it's changed there
