    I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun people to work with for the most part. Learned a lot about running a business that I didnt learn in college.

    Cons

    Was promised all kinds of money and unlimited career advanacement - a "you get out what you put into it" sort of thing. Gave it my all and quickly advanced, only to find out that it doesnt matter what you do, how many hours you put in (an average of 60 a week for four years!), how much you sell (yes, dont let them fool you - this is a sales job), it is all a popularity contest and if you make too much money, they simply switch you to another store and give you a smaller commission percentage, or change your quotas to be so unattainable that they can fire you in 90 days. Oh - and if you dont go out and drink with the crew or flirt with upper management 0 married or not - forget it! At the end of the day, the only people getting rich here are the members of the family who own this company and their friends who won the popularity contest.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach instead of screwing with peoples checks and lives and trying to lure young people into working their fingers to the bone for you under the ruse of an overgrown frat party.

    Pros

    Full health benefits and 401k (w 3% matching) after 60-90 days
    Recession proof industry
    No previous training necessary, all you need is a bachelors or 5 years commission sales experience
    Fun people to work with
    Good management training
    Able to move to different departments of the company if you don't like rental
    Good discounts for personal rentals

    Cons

    Long hours and you work on Saturdays
    You're an hourly employee until you get promoted, then you are salary and commission in management
    You have to wash cars in your suit
    Good customer service is not for the faint of heart, so be ready to bend over backwards and work hard
    Rain, sleet or snow, you go into work. Very rarely does Enterprise close
    All the family will come out of the woodwork for rental hook ups

    Advice to Management

    Don't just preach work life/balance, actually put it in practice and don't let your employees get burnt out.
