About Sunstate Equipment

Sunstate Equipment has been a leading rental equipment provider since 1977. Originally founded in Phoenix, Arizona, Sunstate now provides state-of-the-art construction equipment and tools to job sites from coast to coast. Renowned for responsive customer service and top performance metrics, Sunstate has built our reputation as the rental people you can depend on by putting relationships before profits. We believe in creating an internal culture that encourages opportunity, growth, empowerment, integrity, innovation and teamwork where employees feel valued, respected, fairly compensated, and where they know they can develop long-lasting, satisfying careers.

At Sunstate, every employee’s voice is heard, and we work hard to preserve the close-knit feel of our family-owned roots, even as our national footprint grows to nearly 2,000 team members. By putting our people first, Sunstate has proudly built a team of first-rate people who help deliver the best rental experience in the industry.

The Opportunity

Students joining Sunstate will enter into our one-of-a-kind Apprentice Mechanic Training Program, where they will receive hands-on, paid training while working on a wide variety of construction machines ranging from small tools to heavy equipment. Upon successful completion of the two-year program, graduates will receive a full set of tools and a toolbox to help them succeed in their new role as a Line Mechanic, Field Service Mechanic or Small Engine Mechanic.

As an incoming Apprentice Mechanic, students will be assigned a shop mentor and will receive team support, guidance and ongoing training to hone their skills for diagnosing, troubleshooting, and repairing electrical, hydraulic, ignition, and pneumatic systems, diesel and gas engines, drivetrains, and more.

Students can expect to work individually within a team setting that is supportive, collaborative and goal-oriented. Together, the Sunstate team creates a safe, productive and fun shop environment while ensuring our customers receive safe, reliable, top-performing equipment that is ready-to-work upon delivery.

Sunstate encourages growth from within, and our employees are empowered to develop a career path that continues to challenge and reward them. We offer a culture that puts our people first and embraces our core values of People, Integrity, Safety, Challenge, Empowerment, Teamwork and Fun.
