    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I got to drive new cars every day. The environment was fast paced so time flies. Manager didn't get in your way as long as you do the job right. It's was fun working here.

    Cons

    The pay could be slightly better, I felt that my work hours were unbalanced, I had to work extra on the weekends with little sleep hours in between when working over time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management wasn't there when needed, communication issues with my manager is what cause them to fire me. Little training but I managed to get used to it and make good decisions on my own. I was in a group of deaf driver felt like I was in with the handicap club.

    Pros

    Management positions open often
    Steady work
    Accessible by public transportation
    You can check your own payroll hours on your phone
    They have fashionable new uniforms

    Cons

    Policy discourages promotions of Union members & mandate them to accept a higher position at another branch with the possibility of returning to their original location

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, Please Please !!! Don't wait 9 extra months to sign our union contract like last time. Our families will be hurting as we wait for only a 50 cent raise

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good place to begin. Flexible hours. Not much scope for career progression. Fun place to work at though. I would recommend as a place to start career

    Cons

    Lack of scope to progress career. Not much training, salary and benefits not as good as they could possibly be. Lack of communication from upper to lower level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider more formal training structure with a more obvious progression pyramid

    Pros

    The employees are fun, nice and easy going. The manager is very cool and flexible with our schedule. Get to drive the newest cars around.

    Cons

    Wages are minimum wage standards and raises are minimal. If you are part time you can't work more than 24 /week. They usually try and schedule you 4 days for 6 hrs each day. It would be better to get 3 days for 8 hrs each.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for being so cool. That's why I stay, obviously not the pay. If the pay was at least $10/hr, the turnover wouldn't be so high.

    Pros

    Can't think of much . Managers are ok . They feed you often . And play competitive games to keep you going with sales

    Cons

    Pay is horrible, horrible turnover rate . "Shift bids" ..."seniority" commission pay is calculated to take money you earn .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized.
