Wonderful, and Paid well, couldn't ask for better

Lead Rental Sales Agent (Current Employee)
Saint Paul, MN

I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI love that I am a commissioned employee, it feels great to have a base pay, but better to know that I am responsible for my own successes. I feel they have trained me well, with helpful management and have given me to tools and fleet to make my own sales. I love the people I work with, and do my best to wow-every customer, we do try harder.

ConsI wish the schedule was more set in stone, and do find myself upset with the lack of planning. We could have next years shift bid done this year, but we wait to see if new hires will work out, if so and so is going to retire. As a company or location I suppose I think we may push hours and scheduling off as long as humanly possible.

Advice to Senior ManagementI only recommend that the upper management keeps recognizing highly motivated agents with payed bonus' like they do now. The CEO program is wonderful, and it inspirational. Keep up the good work, and advice to the City Management, is to be more visible. Take time away from your office at administration and come to the actual airport location!

Area Sales Performance Manager (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Avis Budget Group part-time for more than a year

ProsI choose to work for ABG because of the culture that you can see when you walk through the door. All of my expectations have been met and I love the amount of growth opportunities within the company. I started ABG in December 2011 as an SPM and after 16 months I am now the Area Sales Performance Manager.

ConsI do not have any Cons to share about Avis Budget Group

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work!

great place for a young college grad to advance

RSA (Current Employee)
South Bend, IN

I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time for less than a year

ProsABG will invest in you to advance but you need to be young and full of energy to suceed. Great place for a recent grad to start rising to the top.

ConsIf you are older you may not want to work your way up. You must be able to do all types of physical labor. From cleaning cars to working outside in extreme weather.

Great Company

I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time for less than a year

ProsCaring company, With great outlets of learning, You have the freedom to reach for longer goals. Friendly and helpful staff. Great customer service guide lines, A chance to meet wonderful people from great walks of life.

ConsA lot of misunderstanding as far as learning aids, Which are out of date or never posted or misleading. Out dated web web pages and no clear direction from management through meetings to further reach for goals.Customer service causes more misunderstanding then helping in most situations.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your workers and customers if you dont know something we can learn together.

Perfect for prospective business owners

Agency Operator (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Avis Budget Group

Pros- You form a small LLC, Avis Budget contracts it/you to rent cars on their behalf.
- Starting commission of $3,000/month, or 12% of gross sales; whichever is greater.
- You are your own boss!
- No cap on income - what you put into it is what you get out of it.
- Excellent job for gaining experience on how to start and run a business.

Cons- Unless arrangements can be made with upper management, start up costs can be high.
- Say goodbye to personal life for the first few months
- Not for everyone

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Very good company to work for!

ProsGood work hours and a nice work environment. Management team is very fair and pleasant to work for. Overall solid company to work for.

ConsCustomer Service Representative job is taking phone calls for 8-10 hours a day and this can become very draining. But it comes with the nature of the position.
