    I've been in the equipment industry for over 23 years. I started with H&E in 2008, and this is the best job ever. I have had a great experience here. Coming to this company, it feels like family…and that is the best feeling you can have.

    • Marc Sales Representative

    The biggest benefits of working with H&E are the possibilities and opportunity for growth. I would have never thought in a million years me applying as a yard worker would turn into me becoming a territory manager and being able to support my family.

    • Ryan Sales Representative
  • quote

    With H&E, I feel like there is a lot of room for growth, both for myself and the company. We are getting bigger, stronger, and better every day, and one of most satisfying things about my role with the company is that I feel like I can make a difference.

    The company takes what we gather with the customer at the ground level to heart and makes changes. I really feel like that means my voice matters. I'm not just a number on a spreadsheet…I'm an important person at this company.

    • Tim Sales Representative

    Over 20 years, being in different roles has really helped me with the position I have today. I am able to understand what other employees are doing, how they are doing it, and why they are doing it...how it all works and how operations go every day.

    What girl grows up wanting to rent construction equipment? After 15 years, I've been in many roles, and I can confidently say I'm very happy and love my job. I love working at H&E because it is a personal company where leaders are eager to help.

    Things I enjoy most with H&E are the relationships I build with our customers. They value you and your input, and they know you have their best interest at heart and will help them. It really sets us apart and makes us a partner for them and their business.

    • Joe Sales Representative
  • quote

    As I continued to grow within the company, I had the opportunity to take on an outside sales position. It was a very easy process because of what I learned. I had a base of customers I could call on and a whole bunch of experience that enabled me.

    • Nate Sales Representative
  • quote

    Every day is different. That's one of the things that really drew me in. It keeps it exciting. You never get stuck doing the same monotonous thing day in and day out. It keeps you motivated, and you never know what's around the next corner.

    • Troy Sales Representative

    I enjoy coming to work. I enjoy getting up in the morning and being here. I enjoy working with my customer base. It's left me with a free opportunity to grow this like it's my own business. I enjoy what I do.

    I was a mechanic in the military. When I got out, I enjoyed doing mechanic work, so I continued in the field. After 25 years in the business, I retired. But five months later, I decided it was time to go back to work. I love what I do and am proud to be H&E.

    • Chuck Service Manager
  • quote

    Training has prepared me...I am able to be a better Service Manager and train my guys as a result. Also, H&E is family oriented. They care about your well-being, and it shows in the way that they treat you. It makes you feel appreciated as an employee.

    • Anthony Service Manager
  • quote

    What's satisfying about my job is when you get to help a customer when he needs to get something up and going in a hurry. You can step back and take the training you've had and figure out the problem and get him up and going so he is back, productive.

    At the end of the day, the relationships have really gotten us to the point where we are today with our earthmoving business. With that comes trust and good business. Selling equipment is not that hard…it's relationships.

    We all collaborate, and we all work together. Every employee's opinion matters, and I feel like I have a voice. There hasn't been a day that I didn't want to get up out of the bed and come to work. It has really been so much fun and a chance to learn a lot.

    • Angela Director of HR and Benefits
  • quote

    The opportunities that I've had in my career here with H&E have been amazing! When you take a young guy from Montana that had no experience in the equipment business, and to see where I have been able to go, I think is a testament to H&E.

    To be successful and demonstrate excellent customer service, I think you really have to do what you say you are going to do. The end goal is to help our customers achieve their projects and make sure they have equipment that stays up and running.

    • Chris Branch Manager

    It's not just about the products we have; it's also the services we provide. You need people to do that. And with good people, you can get a lot done. I don't know anybody that has the same dedication that this store does in the Orlando market.

    I learned a tremendous amount about management and our industry, and I was able to teach a lot. As a Branch Manager in a leadership role, my job is really to help my people complete their job tasks and take any type of issues or problems away.

    • Lee Branch Manager
  • quote

    When they hired me, I was so dumbfounded that they took an interest in me and were going to give me a shot. At that point, I decided one thing I could do to give back was work hard and do my best each and every day…so that's what I did.

    • George Branch Manager

    Customer Service isn't just about delivery. It's also about before and after: calling the customer beforehand to make sure you are delivering exactly what they need; calling the customer after to make sure everything is right.

    When I went through cancer and the flood, they were so with me. The minute I could get into my house, they got there and helped me. That's a major benefit when you have your company backing you up on any disaster. H&E has always been there.
