    Good opportunity for college graduate if you want no free time, management threats, and a crazy amount of paper work.

    Pros

    Company vehicle and that's it.

    Cons

    1 manager to watch 30 employees is crazy. Responsible for more reports than possible to handle. 50+ hours minimum per week and no work life-balance. Very poor leadership and communication from everyone when in peak seasons. Poor quarterly bonuses even if location is doing excellent. To much gossip from sales associates which should not be allowed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better work-life balance. Lets managers do their job as described when initially hired. Hire an admin person for reports and let managers focus on the important part...sales.

    Former Employee - N/A in Virginia Beach, VA

    Pros

    Descent benefits & corporate discounts. Very casual work clothes (shorts in the summer time, jeans in the winter). Descent annual bonuses based on how the company did over all.

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to get & transferring out is hard as well. There is a lot of favoritism in different departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to stay in their offices during regular business hours. Some managers come and go when they please. Most management also needs to be available to their employees when a "supervisory" call becomes available.

    Pros

    THE MONEY IS AMAZING!!!! As a RSA. Learn how to "persuade" people to upgrade and buy insurance and this is THE BEST company to work for. Stay for a year or so make as much as you can and GTFO lbvvvvvvvs!

    Cons

    EVERYTHING ELSE. The leadership and team are all back stabbing and sneaky. I should know I became drenched in the disgusting culture of the company. Everyone knows the evil backbone of this company yet no one does anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out! Step down and allow good clean hard working people who care about customers to replace you.

    Pros

    flexible hours, and u get to drive new cars

    Cons

    pay is 8 dollars a hour, no benefits for part-time employees plus they don't wanna hire fulltime so they don't have to give them, ,co-workers don't work as a team, management doesn't care about nothing but getting the cars on the ready line, I see coworkers invading each other sexual space and that's against everthing they learned in training, if u clock in one min late that goes as a point twords u and if u get a certain Amount of points like 6 in your first 90 days u could be fired even if its one min late, they have no grace period or respect for people lives, a line of ppl could be waiting to clock on for 2oclock in the eveing and your scheduled to clock on at the same time as them, and your the last person to clock in and it was 2:01, they don't care they will give u a point, smh I mean it happen to me 3 times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    train your leads, make sure your management are looking out for their good and hard working employees, eliminate sexual harassment from the job and give part time workers an opportunity to progress, and give employees a 5min grace period

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money during season as long as you are provided with cars to rent. Good benefits including sick days and paid vacation.

    Cons

    No organization, lack of cars, no recognition for anything good. Its a roller-coaster of a job. You are part of a workers union here which offers both pros and cons itself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More support for front line employees. Counter managers should actually be at the counter.

    Pros

    SOME of your managers are down to earth they may be leaving soon. They actually do allow you to work part time!

    Cons

    Part time could mean 1 day a week depending on if the manager likes you! Put in for time off may not get it based on seniority, most of the managers are more interested in gossip and being friends until corporate gets involved then they want to be managers, employees are allowed to gossip like high school kids. Take FOR EVER to give you proper uniform, weather gear! favorites are allowed to call out whenever they please, pay is just 1 dollar above minimum, get a raise make sure you are getting a Fair Minimum Pay or just starting because some started with more than others to do the same job! told about meetings the day of, if you dont know about it oh well!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop Trying to be friends with everyone and manage!
