Additionally, E175 bins, which although adequately sized for rollaboards, are not capacious enough for mainline-style carrying on, especially in F; if you're not first aboard, you may have trouble finding space. When I think an overhead can be rearranged to accommodate additional bags, I ask the other passengers rather than the FA and usually receive no argument.

Again, not questioning that you received bad service, but these are things I keep in mind to make my own travel smoother.
I personally see no difference in the professionalism of UX vs mainline UA. They both have people all over the spectrum. The UX FAs do tend to be less experienced and hence 'unpolished' but usually they are usually less stuck up
