    Pros

    fast paced, opportunities for advancement, promote from within, sales incentives, fun young team of coworkers

    Cons

    really long hours, can be transferred to a new branch location with little notice, sales numbers were often manipulated, required to wear very professional dress but often expected to wash and detailed cars, safety concerns picking up customers

    Pros

    Decent working environment depends on branch.

    Cons

    low pay for position, Put me way out of my area for the pay, when local branch was hiring at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    actually use your reviews, car preps no longer get raises? without preps there wouldn't be business.

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work for Enterprise is that you dont have to have previous experience and you can become a manager in a very short amount of time depending on how self-motivated you are. This career path is best for the new college graduate who just wants to gain management experience. You will most certainly learn how to manage time and money ie expenses. A lot of companies look to Enterprise employees for managers too. So once you become a branch manager your "stock" goes up and you sould easily be able to move to another company for an actual career. But all in all its a good starting point. Also, i will note that the health benefits are pretty good and they dont cost employees that much.

    Cons

    The down sides of working for Enterprise are big down sides. You work a 50 (sometimes 50+) work week and as you progress this doesnt change. This is the norm for Enterprise employees. While the company stresses work life balance, it is hardly practiced. Another downfall is the pay. Enterprise is great at floating the "golden carrot" in front of your face telling you "dont give up" and " stick with it" and you will earn the big bucks. This can be true if you are at the right place at the right time for about 5 years. That is to say if you can take it for that long. And once you are there, the real question is "is it worth it" because now that you have been promoted your position is more volitale and you are still working 50+ work weeks. My advice is once you get to branch manager status get out and take your experience to a company that will compensate you for your hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what it is like to be where their emloyees are now.
