    Current Employee - Reservations Agent in London, England

    I have been working at Enterprise Holdings full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They provide plenty of work from home opportunities that are sold to you as a flexible way to work. At least you save on travel. A good option as a part time role or side job.

    Cons

    Having worked there for about 6 months, i understand now why they encourage staff to complete reviews whilst still on training, which is relatively comfortable. But then reality hits: Although you work from home , your work time is electronically micro managed in a way that working on location would not be. For example you are marked down for taking toilet/ comfort breaks outside of allocated break times. It's also very difficult to get requested days off. As a reservations agent you are started off on little more than minimum wage, but one way your productivity as an employee is measured in pounds per minute. Many clients are also abusive, most times without any consequences. Full time hours are long, monotonous and relentless during peak seasons. Leaving very little mental energy for any kind of work life balance.

    I have been working at Enterprise Holdings full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people in rental Lots of opportunities for progression

    Cons

    Long long hours. This would be ok if you knew when they'd be, but it makes it very difficult to have a social life when you never know when your day will end going into it. Senior management are becoming less and less engaged in the front line rental. Leads to more and more unrealistic goals being set. There aren't enough people or cars to be able to work effectively.

    Cons

    Employees often identify long hours as the biggest drawback but personally never found this an issue. In reality, long hours exist in every business and are required to be successful.
