    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good place to begin. Flexible hours. Not much scope for career progression. Fun place to work at though. I would recommend as a place to start career

    Cons

    Lack of scope to progress career. Not much training, salary and benefits not as good as they could possibly be. Lack of communication from upper to lower level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider more formal training structure with a more obvious progression pyramid

    Pros

    The insurance benefits are great and the pay is great as well as the overtime available and the holiday pay.

    Cons

    There are no verbal disclosures to customers, so a customer can pay for a car in advance and not get the car because they did not "read" all the fine print. Also, at the counter things are added on, such as insurances and the customer often times is not "aware" of the charges until they are billed. They are then told to call CS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DISCLOSE.....it really sucks having to tell someone that it is too bad they already paid for a car and are not eligible to drive it.

    Pros

    Opportunities, and for the most, good people.

    Cons

    Low pay, The attempt to FORCE employees to stay after working their scheduled shift, It's almost like threatening their vey job security when just trying to do their best. It's almost like good job means nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforcement of attendance rules as well as proper treatment of good commited employees. Keeping good people should be important verses treating them like they are just like the rest of the bunch and making sure there are no personal agendas towards any employee just because one might not like them for whatever the issue is.

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group

    Pros

    The employees are fun, nice and easy going. The manager is very cool and flexible with our schedule. Get to drive the newest cars around.

    Cons

    Wages are minimum wage standards and raises are minimal. If you are part time you can't work more than 24 /week. They usually try and schedule you 4 days for 6 hrs each day. It would be better to get 3 days for 8 hrs each.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for being so cool. That's why I stay, obviously not the pay. If the pay was at least $10/hr, the turnover wouldn't be so high.
