Pros

- Left ERAC with an abundant of useful knowledge in sales
-Valuable training
-Definite resume builder and the ERAC name comes with great value when looking to change careers

Cons

-Long hours with no recognition.
-Training stops on or about 1.5 years
-Definite boys club. Promote-ability definitely relies on who you know (or drink with) and how well you know them
-Middle man (you) always are blamed for failure to meet quotas and when quotas are met upper
management is recognized.
-You are forced to compromise personal values to make ends meet

Advice to Management

Do not forget about your loyal employees; you invested the money in training us, invest some time in keeping us.

    Pros

    Good team environment, nice people to work with. This management position teaches how to run your own rental branch as well as prepared you to escalate up the corporate ladder. For those who make it through the first year, it is a nice way up.

    Cons

    Understaffed, rude clients, especially in the Woodbridge area. Expect to work extended hours and get paid a minimal wage. You could get better after the first year or if you make your way to one of the airport locations, but otherwise you will hit a pretty hard wall

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people more. Most of the employees that left (including me) did so not so much for the job we had to endure but for the combination of the low income factor. With more money, I would have definitely stayed longer.
