    So far the job is fulfilling, a lot of great colleague's that don't mind being helpful to the "new person".

    CBD (Courtesey Bus Driver) (Current Employee)
    Romulus, MI

    ProsThere are many great opportunities the company has for their employees, there is room in the company for you to grow and move up.

    ConsJust that the way they have things set up as far as you being a new hire, scheduling is not all that great, most if the time you never know your days off until the new work relief schedule is put up, a day before or last day of your previous schedule. Nothing nice!

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind another way to fit new hire's on the schedule without them feeling like they probably won't have a life working with this company.

    Unexpected Surprise

    CLE (Current Employee)
    Parsippany, NJ

    ProsI found out about Avis Budget Group through a friend. He had interned at ABG in the summer during his college career. He had nothing but great things to say about the company. He reccomended that I'd be a good fit in the CLE department based on my past jobs. I applied thinking that I wouldn't hear back from ABG.
    After the phone and face to face interview, I was welcomed into the CLE team. This experience so far, has been awesome. I work with a great group of people who encourage and support each other when they need it. I'm really glad I chose to spend my summer with ABG.

    ConsI haven't experience anything to be considered a con but I do hear a lot of compliants about the HR team from many different people in the building.

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

    Great Family/Work life

    Pricing Analyst Level II (Current Employee)
    Parsippany, NJ

    ProsManagers are Fair and the benefits are decentt. The work/home life is great. They really value family and family time. They have flex hours in the summer to get home to the family. They have floating holidays and let you leave early the day before a holiday.

    ConsTraining was almost non existent. The salary is on the lower end compared to other companies. They lack support for growth in certain areas. We have the ability to work from home, however they do not allow it unless it benefits them (like working after hours or on weekends)

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement generally has good communication with employees, certain areas in the company do not promote growth within the company. The company in certain departments has a high turnover rate.

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

    Operations Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGives you a good platform to outnumber one-self. A very encouraging and firm unit supplemented by some strong leadership!

    ConsStrong competition - its a pro rather than a con! Mindsets and beliefs need to vary with pacing time and opportunity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you do best!

    Poor Rental Sales Agent Training At Counter

    Rental Sales Agent (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits

    Large blocks of slow periods at my location.

    I am single, so I don't mind working weekends, holidays, odd shifts.

    Due to my previous work history, there is ample room for advancement.

    ConsOperations managers are nice but do not perform some of their duties to adequate levels. For example:

    They don't train the rental sales agents at the counter, despite the fact that it is their policy to do so.

    Poor/slow resupply of smaller vehicles from the cleaning department, and slow shuttle drivers. How many shuttle drivers does it take to change a light bulb?

    I accepted and even embraced their upselling and selling of add-on products. However, when we have a longer rental period from a customer, such as 3 weeks, with no upsell or add-ons, it drags our average down.

    If we don't meet sales expectations, we can be let go. Maybe they should place less weight on these longer rentals as it pertains to our average. This is the reason I will not recommend this company to friends.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAccountability for ops managers on above. These are not difficult components to manage, but there isn't a mechanism to double check that they are performing these duties.

    My location has several employees that have been here for more than 10 years. They catch/fix some of these problems. The portion that fall through this line of defense result in service failures to the customers.

    Replace the antique DOS reservation system LOL.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
