    Pros

    You are working with friends, the company and managers are always there to back you up. The pay and commission are great!

    Cons

    You do have to be a good salesman. Your whole job is to sell and upsell customers. If this is not your niche, you won't last here.

    Pros

    The Commission as a rental associate is uncapped, some room for advancement.

    Cons

    The management of the location which I worked at is new so they drop the ball on certain things and some of the senior co-workers are not professional at work.

    Pros

    Avis Budget Group is business and family oriented company!

    Cons

    The starting wages would do a great deal for the employees if they were a couple of dollars more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You completely capture the quality of an employee and assess them based on a numbers system.

    Pros

    Great job for retirees who want no stress income. I look at the job as an exercise program that I get paid for.

    Cons

    Schedules so far are never the same. It is very hard to plan when you never know when you are going to be called.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Post job schedules online as soon as available. I have found management to be very responsive.

    Pros

    Avis has a very good working environment coworkers and managers are on the same page I enjoy my time at Avis I learned a lot of training takes a bit but after you learn training you'll be able to get on the counter and make money

    Cons

    manager can be a little obsessive over your numbers their commission is based off of yours so they will always hound you about your numbers

    Pros

    I got to drive new cars every day. The environment was fast paced so time flies. Manager didn't get in your way as long as you do the job right. It's was fun working here.

    Cons

    The pay could be slightly better, I felt that my work hours were unbalanced, I had to work extra on the weekends with little sleep hours in between when working over time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management wasn't there when needed, communication issues with my manager is what cause them to fire me. Little training but I managed to get used to it and make good decisions on my own. I was in a group of deaf driver felt like I was in with the handicap club.
