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

    Pros

    They treat their employers with respect.

    Cons

    They practice a "healthy environment" while feeding their employers pizza and candy most people are obese there and it is just depressing to work in that kind of environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at least on my department was great!!!

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

    Pros

    This California location lets you work when you want to!

    Cons

    Upward mobility does not exist for part time employees. No one pays attention to current employees let alone look at their skills or previous work experience as it relates to advancement. Part time employees are not considered unless they have car or truck rental experience, especially if you are a Transfer Driver (for 5 years). Human Resources runs things in California even though they have no idea what goes on in the field. Most managers are desk jocks with little field experience and no decision making authority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We do employee surveys every year. Maybe upper management should read the results because in 5 years nothing has changed. Human Resources runs things in California. Maybe managers should step up and manage rather than allow H.R. to manage for them.

    Pros

    Commision can be great. Plenty of unpaid time off furing slow season. Hourly plus commision. Cant beat that

    Cons

    Communication is horrible. Learn to help employees better. Lack of knowledge. You need to be a favorite in order to have management listen to you and do something to rectify the problem. Some people (definitely not all) are a pain to work with. They feel entitled to everything and make hige ordeals out everything just because they have been there for 10+ years and yet they are horrible at their job and expect to have everything handed to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees and inform them of any changes in policies.
