Former Employee - Station Manager in San Francisco, CA (US)

I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great team of experienced personnel. Half-decent pay, and the car benefits were very handy when fuel costs start to skyrocket. Lots of fun and useful vehicles to drive.

Cons

Lack of support for growth or maintenance of market share. Unrealistic goals and inconsistent accountability. Myopic focus on counter sales at the expense of almost everything else, including operations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This business has low profit margins and most customers (and employees) are unhappy. Try harder to make the employees happy, and they will make the customers happy aka Southwest Airlines

    Former Employee - Rental Sales Agent in New York, NY (US)

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    pay in NYC is about 9.75 hr plus commission which can range from 300-2000 per mth if youre really, really good at selling.
    ample training which really helps in selling
    really great people to work with, very helpful and kind

    Cons

    higher management, not the location managers, can be shockingly unprofessional
    I was once told by an agent that in this company, if a co-worker complains to upper management about you even if the accusation or complaint is unfair or untrue, they will tell you nothing about it and then fire you one fine day out of the blue with no explanation as to why. Wow!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn some HR skills. You really need them. You are not better than the rental agents. Listen to employee concerns and dont take sides. Be neutral and fair.

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Sound family oriented company. Outstanding employees with diverse backgrounds. Great benefits. Majority of senior leaders are strong with good character.

    Cons

    No accountability back to employees. Goals (tied to bonuses) delivered consistently 4-6 months late. Perception far more important to senior manager of local market than reality. Totally self absorbed narcissus skilled at creating master illusion. Beautiful paint on the shell but egg is rotten.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rolling pride spending huge $$$$$$ while money to develop customers and pay bonuses are stripped. Las Vegas penthouse suites and Hawaii....really? Accountability and respect is just as important back to the employee.
