    Pros

    Very fun place to work. You will make a lot of friends and learn the back and front end of how a business is run. You get to see reports that no other employer would show their employees. Very honest and ethical.

    Cons

    Sometimes 60 hour work weeks. The time off you get you're too exhausted to even do anything because the days are so hectic and demanding. Retail hours with retail like customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember, these are kids who probably still live with their parents who you are training. If you think they are valuable to your branch be flexible with days off and try not to overwork them or they will get burnt out on and leave.

    Pros

    Meet new people from all walks of life, Gain experience that will help build your resume.

    Cons

    Too many cliques. Upper management only considers the cool kids, the job can be dangerous (you drive all day), washing cars in suits sucks

    I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Enterprise encourages healthy competition and has great management. They teach you a lot about sales; there is a heavy emphasis on selling insurance. It is a great company for a first job.

    Cons

    The pay is not very good and the hours are very long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage upward mobility and have more insensitive programs.

    Pros

    Good training process that allows freedom for you to make your own decisions. Everyone is promoted from within and everyone starts as a management trainee. At Enterprise you get the opportunity to build your skills in sales.

    Cons

    High turnover and must be okay with constantly changing offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees

    I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great experience in sales. You get to format your sales pitch according to each situation and management is willing to help you realize what you could have done differently when rejected. Great people and great benefits, just didn't personally enjoy selling just to sell. Would prefer a company who's brand is easier to stand behind.

    Cons

    No work-life balance as they say. You work very long hours and have hardly any time to take care of personal matters. If you are not looking to stay in sales long term, this is not the job for you. Even after you've completed your management training program, your next step still includes sales. And after that, sales. It is very hard to move into corporate positions even though they make it seem like it is simple. Very under paid!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more! There is no commission, yet you have high expectations of sales and long hours. Very hard to stay motivated when you could easily make more working half the hours waiting tables.

    I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They do a great job of teaching you how to effectively run your own business all the while teaching you the basics of sales and marketing.

    Cons

    You're just a number -- easily replaced. You will clean cars in suits and ties. You will buy at least 3 pairs of shoes a year and you will need to fake it to make it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm sure they're doing just fine...

    You'll meet great people and learn a ton - but you will be poor and have no work/life balance.

    I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They'll hire you straight out of college with no experience. A lot of employers are very familiar with the extensive sales and management training they provide, so if you can tough it out and make it to management, it looks great on a resume.

    Cons

    You're going to give up all hopes of having a work/life balance for literally nothing in compensation. As far as management, you'll either be lucky and have someone great - or you'll have someone terrible and your daily life will be hell. You'll also get yelled at and berated by customers everyday. To this day, I cannot believe the things people have the nerve to say to someone just trying to help them/do their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be kind - you were there once too.
