Pros

There is a great sense of camaraderie and if you are at the right store you can bonus upward of 15K quarterly.

Cons

Perpetually understaffed so Branch Managers will often work 60 hours per week which can be frustrating when your store is not bonusing or you are cutting staffs hours to meet OT goals. HIGH emphasis on sales with sometimes unrealistic goals-- can lead to some shady practices

Advice to Management

Cutting corners to save money short term will cause some of the best managers to leave

    Pros

    You're allowed a lunch.

    You get to drive new cars.

    It's a job that allows you to pay some of your bills.

    Cons

    Constantly changing revenue, sales and customer service goals. Get this. If you don't achieve the city minimum in Customer service they take away 25% of your bonus. If you don't beat YOY sales at the counter they take away another 20% from you.

    $10 or so start out as a trainee....

    $11 if you happen to become a manager associate

    $11.25 if you become a Manager Assistant

    $600 a week if you become a location manager.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay your employees properly. Stop making the bonus impossible.

    Pros

    Driving new cars
    Driving to drop cars off, gave you time to listen to music, be on your phone and relax, take a nap if you were traveling long distance

    The location I worked at was relatively slow so I was always playing games on my phone

    I only worked there for 6 weeks

    Weekends off because I was still a trainee

    Closed on Sundays and only open a few hours on Saturday

    Really good paid/closed holidays(Closed most holidays)

    Cons

    The pay. This was my first job out of college. They paid me 10 dollars an hour! A college graduate!

    They promised bonuses which I got but it was only 12 dollars which increased my pay by 1 cent an hour..

    The office was really disgusting. Why will people pay good money for a rental car if the office where you rent it from looks like a shady business building with missing ceiling tiles, dirty wall, dirty carpet, and overall gross appearance.

    They tried really hard to make my position legitimate because I had a degree but the customer service rep that was supposedly under me ( because he did not have a degree) was making 10 dollars as well...

    Cleaning the cars in the115 degree Oklahoma heat and sweating in your dressy clothes.

    I felt like I was wasting my life every second I worked there.

    Recent college grads, its not worth it. I know time are hard and there are really no jobs, but you will be better off working somewhere else. For 10 bucks an hour, just work at Walmart.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better. Its really degrading to college graduates to get such little pay. If you paid better people would stay and maybe your company would be taken more seriously.
