Employee Feedback

Real feedback from our team members past and present

Ronan
Flexi Hire Manager, Poole [May 2021]
"I originally joined U-Drive under the Graduate Management Scheme. It was a two year programme and a fantastic way to get a taste of all aspects of the business, spending time in Operations, Marketing, Insurance and Project Management. Since completing the scheme I have worked in several departments and am currently the Flexi-Hire manager. I am enjoying this fresh challenge, with the autonomy to create my own processes and establish a team with a plan in place to grow this aspect of the business significantly in the next 12 months. I have always been supported by senior management, who are open to new ideas and always generous with their time and advice."
Andrea
Branch Manager, Salisbury [June 2021]
"I have been working for U-Drive for more than 10 years and every day is different, that’s what I love about it. Some days are challenging but there is nothing like the satisfaction you get when you have made the impossible happen. I enjoy the customer service side of the job meeting new people everyday and becoming part of their journey in life no matter what it may be. The Management team are supportive and always open to ideas and suggestions from all staff. U-Drive have recently gone above and beyond with regards to pay and benefits for their staff and their door is always open and kettle on if you need them. I wouldn’t work anywhere else."
Paul
Used Vehicle Sales Manager, Poole [June 2021]
"I joined U Drive Ltd in November 2018 and I am responsible for the disposal of the rental fleet back into the market when off hired. I am part of a small team within the business, but have always felt part of the Company as a whole. The owner and Senior Management Team are very approachable and welcome any input to improve the business and working environment. Everyone I’ve met from Branch level and here at Head Office has been extremely warm and friendly and especially helpful, even now I’ve found my feet."
Gary
Vehicle Damage Manager, Poole [June 2021]
As Vehicle Damage Manger, I am responsible for overseeing all claims and damage involving U-Drives vehicle fleet. Despite an insurance background, the Self Drive Hire market was new to me. Having only been with U-Drive eight months, it’s been quite an eye opener. The old adage that no two days are the same is certainly true. Working with a significant degree of autonomy and instigating changes to streamline processes has shown me how receptive and approachable the senior management team are. By comparison to previous places of employment, U Drive is certainly a busy and fast paced environment, but at the same time we also know how to have fun. It is refreshing to be in a family run business where I now feel very much part of the furniture.
Peter
National Business Development Manager, South [June 2021]
“I would like to take a minute to describe my 1st year working for U-Drive Ltd. I accepted the position of Local Business Development Manager without too much knowledge of U-Drive’s culture and working environment. I was welcomed into the team with big smiles and friendly well wishes from colleagues from all over the business. The senior management team have been very approachable and encouraging throughout my time with U-Drive. Since proving successful in my role, I have been rewarded with a promotion to National Business Development Manager, showing that U-Drive reward good performance. I would describe this company as a hardworking, ambitious and inclusive family.”
Harry
Accounts Apprentice, Poole [June 2021]
I started working at U-Drive in September of 2019 as an Accounts apprentice and after successfully passing level 3 AAT I have been offered a full-time position and the chance to do Level 4 AAT. I like working at U-Drive as everyone is fun, friendly and it is a nice working environment. I have been given a multitude of opportunities to progress my career by shadowing other member of the accounts department and been supported every step of the way for both personal and professional matters.
Alfie
Apprentice Mechanic, Poole Workshop [June 2021]
I first started here September 2019 to begin my 3 year mechanics apprenticeship. I was welcomed into the workshop by a great group of people who have helped and taught me everything I have needed to know in the 2 years I have been here. I have recently just completed my level 2 and about to start level 3. I have enjoyed every bit of it and have had all the support I have needed from everybody in the workshop. I should complete my apprenticeship within the next 18 months which will lead me on to becoming qualified and learning more.
Shel
HR Administrative Assistant, Poole [July 2021]
This is a great place to work. Your commitment and hard work are rewarded by a good package of benefits, including increased holiday and staff discounts. The senior management team are always willing to help and I’ve seen that aptitude and talent are recognised and nurtured. My role within U-Drive is quite diverse, from managing the Admin Team to co-ordinating the maintenance requests and team to administrating HR processes. You can safely say that no day is the same – I can be sending out a New Starter pack one minute to organising a gully sucker for a blocked drain the next. Everyone I have encountered within U-Drive has been warm and friendly and always shown a willingness to help.
Hayley
Customer Service Representative, Poole [July 2021]
I have worked here for nearly 6 months and what an amazing company to work for. Management are always there to help and you only need to ask. Each day is different and you could be out driving or on the front desk but that’s part of the job and working as a team. You get all the training you need but you are always learning something new every day. Everyone is so friendly here and have all made me feel welcome since starting here. Would definitely recommend U-Drive to work for.
