Branch Manager

Post Date
Lima, OH
Job Description

We are in search of an incredibly talented Billy OR Billie Jean Bada** to join our team as an Equipment Rental Branch Manager in our, soon to open, Lima, OH branch. 

Vandalia Rental is an awesome, growing company with a crazy bright future. We commit all our energy to operational excellence in everything we do. Our customers are the best ever and they ultimately judge our performance. They always expect our “A” game and won’t settle for 2nd string. We want the “A” players on our team. 

The Equipment Rental Branch Manager will be responsible for all operational aspects of the Lima branch; including all the cool P&L stuff. The Branch Manager will wheel and deal with customers, make hiring decision, be responsible for maintenance, logistics, rental and all the other adulting stuff that comes along with running an equipment rental branch.

***Important Info You'll Want to Read***

Prior to opening the branch, the Branch Manager will report to our Vandalia, OH Store to get indoctrinated in all things Vandalia Rental to prepare you for world domination. This includes, but by no stretch of the imagination is limited to, working outside in all the elements Mama Nature can throw at you, working the phones and the job sites gettin’ your sales on, getting greasy with the mechanics, slingin’ chains on trailers with the driver guys and gettin’ geeky with HR and finance. The training will take you through all functional areas of the biz and school you on how to run a branch Vandalia Rental Style! 

Here's the stuff you really want to know

  • Incredible team atmosphere
  • Pay is based on relevant experience. We know that outstanding team members come at a price. We LOVE making that investment
  • Monthly profit sharing bonus. Yes, we actually pay this out 
  • Medical, Dental, Vision, Life insurance
  • Community contributions, tuition assistance, paid time off, paid holidays, extremely discounted rentals 
  • Team and family events through out the year
  • Tons more, you'll just have to join the team to see

What You Need to Do

  • Be a leader – speak your mind, influence and create positive change. You will need to manage yourself, your boss and your peers from time to time. Most of us are humans, but we all need direction occasionally.
  • We are a "For Profit" company, so increasing revenue and profit has to be a priority, but you gotta grow with your customers, not at their expense. We win, they win
  • Grow and change. I’d like to say growth happens around here at the speed of light, but we can’t measure it because it happens so fast sometimes. But we ALWAYS grow responsibly
  • Have desire, drive and an absolute thirst to win. Not sometimes, but every dang time! In the real world, not everyone gets a participation ribbon. We will not cheat, lie or steal; but we WILL win!
  • Coach, encourage, mentor and grow your team. You will have the coolest cats around - keep it that way 
  • Not be a jerk! We do not hire jerky type people
  • Make the impossible possible
  • When you think you’ve done it good enough, make it better


What You Gotta Bring to the Party

  • Gotta be from the greater Lima, OH area and have some good know how about the area industry and business
  • Lots of Leadership experience. I’ll leave this open to interpretation, but it will be extremely obvious if you don’t have it, so don’t fake it
  • A passion like no other to be successful and conquer the rental industry. If you just want to punch a clock and go home; stay home – this isn’t the place for ya
  • Equipment rental experience would be phenomenal, but not mandatory. You gotta have some understanding of the rental biz or similar industries to be successful in this role
  • Be able to think on your feet, your hands, standing on your head, while driving, while dancing, etc. There's ALWAYS a lot going on. If multitasking makes you nauseated, look away...just look away 
  • Have a killer personality, not the personality of a killer
  • It would be rockin’ if you had a BA/BS degree - not a degree in BS if you know what I mean. Degree isn’t required, but would be cool
  • Must be authorized to work in the United States, willing to submit to a drug screen and background check that may include: criminal, credit check, work history, reference check, motor vehicle report, education verification, or anything else that is legal for us to dig up on you that is of course applicable to the role.

Pretend I’m saying all this without taking a breath and real fast like at the end of an infomercial: Got to be able to be exposed to all elements related to construction and industrial applications, must be able to stand or sit for long periods, must have a valid driver’s license, speak, read and understand English proficiently, lift 100+ pounds with assistance, start equipment (key and rope pull), can’t be afraid of heights (we have lifts up to 180’), must be technologically savvy, have a minimum high school diploma or GED.

Hopefully some of our workplace culture has shined through here. We encourage fun in a relaxed environment, but we also have serious moments as well. We believe that attitudes are infectious and we want to ensure that we will be a good fit for you and you for our team. If you just don’t get this job ad or it completely repulses you, please do not apply – it is highly likely that you will not be happy here.
