    Pros

    It was fun, easy summer job. Mostly young guys cleaning cars, talking to each other, and playing music.

    Cons

    Every manager has different expectations to how you clean cars so they can be frustrating. Also they ask for certain cars to be cleaned immediately, but then will get upset at us if they aren't immaculate. Just isn't fair sometimes. There's just poor communication at the service desk to the servicing station.

    Pros

    Commission sales, but to hit the mark you typically have to cheap and add on to the customers contracted as presented.

    Cons

    Management has its marching orders about the Rental Sales Agents (RSAs) hitting their goals. Management looks the other way for RSAs who hit the marks even to the extent of unethical practices. It is typical for an RSA to add on services and coverages to a contract and not disclose the additions to the customer. The customer gets the surprise upon returning the vehicle. Unethical. Illegal. Outright theft.
