    Not good. A poorly organized company.

    Pros

    Typically one can develop great relationships with the customers of their location. The fellow employees are usually good people as well.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover rate. Poor supply chain management skills. Every week I would encounter a situation where the district manager did not have enough necessary cars available to rent. This creates furious customers who are unable to rent a car and all they can do is yell at the customer service rep.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least pretend like you want to be there and work for the company.

    I worked at Avis Budget Group part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Not much. Commission would be a pro but a smaller airport plus we never had cars made it difficult.

    Cons

    Manager was horrible since it's her first time. She does not know how to deal with her employees. A little to friendly with employees from other rental agencies which is not good practice. Rumors spreading about idiotic things. I hate having a job when people are always talking about each other. That's why I quit my job. At the end of the day if you don't like your work environment you should always leave because it will just get worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some managers who know what they are doing and have been managers previously. I get that it will be more difficult in a smaller area but it will save you in the long haul.

    Pros

    Great benefits and that's it!

    Cons

    High turn over rate due to poor management. Some coworkers try to throw you under the bus to look better. The shifts are all about seniority so prepare to work odd hours. Also those hours usually don't pay well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the good managers leave because they don't fit into the "boys club." Stop talking about promoting from within when you know you aren't going to do it.

    Pros

    Usually a lot of available overtime since the turn over rate is really high.

    Cons

    Favoritism over seniority, lack of caring and help from management, high turn over rate, inaccuracy with working hours and paychecks. I could go on and on. If you gain a few pay raises and want to move up to a better position, they take your pay raises and put you down to what the starting pay is!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being lazy and actually work and help your employees. Hire from within the company.

    Pros

    Can't think of much . Managers are ok . They feed you often . And play competitive games to keep you going with sales

    Cons

    Pay is horrible, horrible turnover rate . "Shift bids" ..."seniority" commission pay is calculated to take money you earn .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized.

    Senior management is top notch and really know how to turn a company around. .Ability to really own your piece of the business. Lots of autonomy and empowerment.

    Cons

    Pay is not as competitive as NYC which makes it hard to want to stay in Northern NJ.

    Pros

    Just applied on a whim and never thought I would get picked or offered a position. I am very happy with my job and the confidence shown toward helping me become all I can be or more. Very exciting to be the face of a JD Powers top company!!!

    Cons

    One co worker not a lot of help.

    Pros

    Great commission. Managers coached throughout the process. Union based company. Would consider going back if I got the offer.

    Cons

    Nothing really negative to go off of. I liked working for AVIS. If you're into sales, go for it. My highest commission month was 5k, and that's not including my hourly base.
