Enterprise has been great to me and my family.

Management (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time for more than 10 years

ProsI started with Enterprise over 25 years ago - way before we were in the top 3 rental companies. To be part of the history, to watch how the company has grown, and to see how they have stayed true to their mission and values has been amazing. Especially as friends have been through layoffs, job hopping, mergers, or worse. I am still here because I like and respect the people I work with, and I still continue to learn and have fun at work every day.

ConsThe cons don't come close to the pros. Sometimes long hours, but I DONT bring my work home with me. Any professional who has ownership in their position is going to do what it takes, and that is what I do. My family has been provided for very well, and we have a stable financial future because Enterprise has invested in me as much as I have invested in the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great company that cares about it's employees and customers

Area Rental Manager (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time for more than 5 years

ProsEnterprise follows a hire from within policy in which every employee starts as a management trainee. You will never have a manager ask you to do something they won't or haven't done themselves. Every level of management has worked their way up and can uniquely relate to a brand new employee.
Most employees truly enjoy coming to work on a daily basis. Having fun in the branches is a must.
The employees and management are given a lot of autonomy to run a branch and not micro managed on every aspect of daily operations.
The starting pay has significantly improved and there is a huge potential to increase your pay substantially in just your first couple of years.

ConsThe customers and accounts can be difficult at times but that can be said for any company or career that deals with the general public.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Competitive, career starting, customer service oriented, high pressure organization.

Branch Manager (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time for more than 8 years

ProsCompany benefits are great!
Employees are generally easy to get along with and socially outgoing
Great opportunity to learn how to run and manage a business.

ConsLong hours, even though you're sold on 49-51 hrs/wk to start, depending on what office you begin your career, your hours could easily reach 60 hrs/wk. If you're a manager and you want your office to be successful, you will work no less than 60 hrs/wk.
High stress due long hours and apathetic attitude from upper management whenever performance is below monthly goals.
Always looking for the new hot employee, so the area manager/company can boast about them in order to make themselves look better for hiring/training that particular employee and set them as an example for other new employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at the market around you and the team you build before you start pointing fingers around for 'poor performance.'

This company will teach you how to handle customer complaints, how to properly “Sale” products, how to effectively market yourself and how to manage different people. Promotions are based on your numbers, so it's what you do that gets you promoted. I never planed on staying here, and it's been a great career choice!
