      Rental sales agent

      30 Jun 2017 - Rental Sales Agent in Heathrow, England, England

      Pros

      Good commission Good staff discount Over time paid time and half

      Cons

      Long hours Basic salary very poor Late shifts Rubbish pay rises Avis keeps cutting benefits ( like bank holiday pay, commission ) No shift Patten so can't plan your life and very few weekends off. Job is only worth doing as rental sales agent at busy airport as any other role including management is not worth it. Some rental sales agent get a grand a month more then managers and lot less work to do! Which is highly unfair i think.

      Unrealistic & no appreciation of the right people

      Pros

      Good selection of fleet and the least rewarded staff work the hardest.

      Cons

      Long hours, not enough operators for customers. Top level managers are where all the focus is not mid or front line. Staff just expected to work on locations extra hours without pay if its busy because they can't provide staff. Customers get frustrated because you can't give good service.
