    Research....Research...Research I researched what Avis had to offer as far careers, advancement, pay and benefits.

    PSR (Current Employee)
    Cheektowaga, NY

    ProsInterview process was specific and to the point. As was the title and description of the positions available at the time of the interview.Co-workers are welcoming.Management is reachable. Benefits great !!! I am learning a lot ! Full time hours and offer overtime hours.

    ConsNot all co workers are mature or respectful of other co workers or customers. Some co workers have disgusting habits...Managment takes care of it if they see it or hear it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease get new equipment for Rovers to use to more efficiently serve customers.

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

    Stressful

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCo-workers for the most part are very friendly and helpful. The training program is very in depth and helpful. Keeps you busy so time goes by fast.

    ConsManagement is never on the same page. You can be told you are doing great by several of them and then you basically suck by another. Different rules apply for different people. Moral since I have been here has gotten even worse.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet on the same page! Deal with issues brought to your attention and dont bury your head in the sand. It hurts moral and makes us that work for you feel not important.

    Okay, no real room to grow in a career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDiscount on car rentals that's the only perk. But you often can just catch a better deal through a travel site.

    ConsTerrible scheduling. Upper management seems to not know, better yet doesn't have an ounce of a clue what takes place during each shift changes when it comes to operations. Seniority is a big deal, you will always get the short end of the stick when it comes to scheduling, vacation time and personal time off requests.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clue. Your customers, especially many of your corporate "Avis First & Preferred" are rude & treat your employees like crap.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Avis Budget Group coworkers have been fun and knowledgeable; they made me feel like a member of the team from day one.

    Dispatcher (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsI chose to work for ABG because of the value placed on quality customer service, as well as the challenge of the Dispatcher position. There are many opportunities/career paths within ABG, and good work is recognized and appreciated here. 401(k) has a 100% company match on the first 6% of your income after one year of service. Unused sick days are paid out at the end of the year

    ConsWhile the benefits are very good, the pay is fairly low. The computer system is antiquated and unnecessarily complicated when performing the simplest of tasks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be to consider updating the computer system.

    The offer a lot of overtime . Very friendly employees.

    Service Agent (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsPlenty of overtime ... a lot of work to be done moving and cleaning cars and vans etc.

    ConsThe weather changes everyday very cold at night.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere seems to be lack of instruction for customers who return cars at night. No person on hand to instruct the customers regarding parking and billing.

    1 year into my sentence

    RSA (Current Employee)
    Peoria, IL

    ProsHealth Insurance, great training programs, get to see latest cars, meet world travelers.

    ConsManagement is horrible, co workers are overly competitive sociopaths who lie to deflect from their lack of sales. Unfair commission structure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Handled reservations for customers and tried to upsell them

    Rental Sales Agent (Former Employee)
    Albany, NY

    ProsFun atmosphere. Good training. Provides a lot of competition amongst employees to build character.

    ConsCompensation is little. The structure of the bonus is terrible. Every rental counts even if you cant help it. Took a while to get paid for bonus and reimbursement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter commission structure for each division.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
