    Pros

    Managers are Fair and the benefits are decentt. The work/home life is great. They really value family and family time. They have flex hours in the summer to get home to the family. They have floating holidays and let you leave early the day before a holiday.

    Cons

    Training was almost non existent. The salary is on the lower end compared to other companies. They lack support for growth in certain areas. We have the ability to work from home, however they do not allow it unless it benefits them (like working after hours or on weekends)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management generally has good communication with employees, certain areas in the company do not promote growth within the company. The company in certain departments has a high turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had several managers where few were just concerned to increase sales and profits, while other were real managers, who dedicated their time to make the company better place

    Pros

    Drive new cars around the parking lot. Everyone is really friendly and willing to help. Managers are friendly and are pretty easy going.

    Cons

    Long hours, however the breaks are pretty long. You drive many cars, it can get repetitive. Its a 24 hour business.

    Pros

    The high employee retention rate and opportunity for growth within the company was what initially peaked my interest. It was apparent that Avis Budget Group values and supports the advancement of their employees. As for the culture, I experienced it first hand during my initial visit to headquarters; everyone greeted me with a smile and appeared genuinely happy to be there. That spoke volumes to me!

    Cons

    I have not experienced any challenges up to this point.

    Pros

    You get to know a lot about customers and vehicles. You're taught how to sell and given feedback about it.

    Cons

    Payroll does not send your check on time. Your last check, isn't sent, at all, you have to call HR and fight them for your hard earned money. They don't tell you that both your hourly and commissions are heavily taxed. Working 50+ hours per week, I was only making $8 an hour, in a really stressful environment. We were terribly understaffed and had to handle long lines of frustrated customers while trying to sell them different products. Not a good gig.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people. Hire more people. Don't take advantage of the employees. Tell your employees that ethics are important but they rarely come into play at work, so leave your values at home.
