    Pros

    Drive new cars around the parking lot. Everyone is really friendly and willing to help. Managers are friendly and are pretty easy going.

    Cons

    Long hours, however the breaks are pretty long. You drive many cars, it can get repetitive. Its a 24 hour business.

    Pros

    Gives you a good platform to outnumber one-self. A very encouraging and firm unit supplemented by some strong leadership!

    Cons

    Strong competition - its a pro rather than a con! Mindsets and beliefs need to vary with pacing time and opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you do best!

    Pros

    The high employee retention rate and opportunity for growth within the company was what initially peaked my interest. It was apparent that Avis Budget Group values and supports the advancement of their employees. As for the culture, I experienced it first hand during my initial visit to headquarters; everyone greeted me with a smile and appeared genuinely happy to be there. That spoke volumes to me!

    Cons

    I have not experienced any challenges up to this point.

    Pros

    You get to know a lot about customers and vehicles. You're taught how to sell and given feedback about it.

    Cons

    Payroll does not send your check on time. Your last check, isn't sent, at all, you have to call HR and fight them for your hard earned money. They don't tell you that both your hourly and commissions are heavily taxed. Working 50+ hours per week, I was only making $8 an hour, in a really stressful environment. We were terribly understaffed and had to handle long lines of frustrated customers while trying to sell them different products. Not a good gig.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people. Hire more people. Don't take advantage of the employees. Tell your employees that ethics are important but they rarely come into play at work, so leave your values at home.

    Company is ever-changing, which is a good thing, but has been challenged to see things through before acting.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the freedom to manage my workday the way I saw fit. As long as you are performing, they give you a longer leash typically.

    Cons

    Follow through on strategy and not enough sales training courses. More recognition and positive reinforcement needed. Budget truck rental is poorly run and deserves better as the cash cow of this organization. Overaged fleet with poor customer service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Live in the moment" more and really celebrate the victories. Don't just ring a bell.
