    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into who is doing what at each and every position and location. I bet you find some are carrying the place much more then others. My boss just got elite boss status...lol what a joke

    Pros

    if you dont have a degree annd dont mind working weekends then its a good place to start. not a lot of responsiblity beyond showing up . that is if you have a minimum amount of bills to be paid.

    Cons

    no room to grow. limited hiring from within, not capable of real change, management is not competent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    limited structure, day to day limited plan , social atmosphere is weak, rude and classless in some managerial techniques.

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time

    Pros

    There are really no pros, besides the shift that I work with is pretty awesome.

    Cons

    There are many cons. You get paid a set wage of less than $10 per hour. The commission is based off percentages. SO if you make the company $20K in revenue, you may only get $800 in commission. The management is horrible at my location. No real perks of being with the company.. except great benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs extensive training.

    Pros

    Typically one can develop great relationships with the customers of their location. The fellow employees are usually good people as well.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover rate. Poor supply chain management skills. Every week I would encounter a situation where the district manager did not have enough necessary cars available to rent. This creates furious customers who are unable to rent a car and all they can do is yell at the customer service rep.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least pretend like you want to be there and work for the company.

    Pros

    Great benefits and that's it!

    Cons

    High turn over rate due to poor management. Some coworkers try to throw you under the bus to look better. The shifts are all about seniority so prepare to work odd hours. Also those hours usually don't pay well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the good managers leave because they don't fit into the "boys club." Stop talking about promoting from within when you know you aren't going to do it.
