    Could be a lot better. Constant switch in managers since enterprise took over.

    I have been working at Alamo Rent A Car

    Pros

    Good co-workers, meeting people from all over the world, discounts on cars are sometimes good(rates go up and down like customers rates do), driving all the new cars.

    Cons

    The pay. Max pay is $11 an hour. The whiny customers who milk the company out of money because they know the system. Sometimes it feels like customers are treated better. No sick days. All the good managers hardly ever stay. Some of the bonuses suck. Management is very sneaky also.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees more. Try to treat us like you actually care. Max pay at $11 an hour is ridiculous!

    I have been working at Alamo Rent A Car full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Management is friendly and accessible. Most employees are very friendly and helpful. Good referral program and generous vacation/sick time.

    Cons

    No room for advancement or raises unless you have a college degree. There are too many managers and assistant managers and most don't know what is going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs more consistent follow-up on promises made to employees. Need more advancement possibilities based on experience and ability.

    I have been working at Alamo Rent A Car

    Pros

    The employee discounts are awesome and if you are a manager you get a company car, which means you do not pay for the vehicle, gas or insurance on the car. It can be a very rewarding job. Everyday you meet people from all overthe world and you have the opportunity to help them in some way. People travel for business, family vacations or due to unfortunate circumstances such as a death or ill family member. All to often they don't bring the things they need to wiht them, it is our job to help the customers the best we can so that they can do what they came in town to do. Customer service is king at our company!

    Cons

    Well if you work at an airport location you are most likely open 24 hours so it can be hard sometime to work the hours needed. If you are a manager for this copmany plan on putting in 10 to 15 hours per day. People who leave exactly at their scheduled out time are looked upon as lazy and non-team players. In addition we are open on holidays so you will have to work the holidays away from your family
