    Pros

    Able to make a good amount of commission.

    Horrible Management. Does not care for their employees and will throw you under the bus. Only care about you selling extra insurance.

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

    Pros

    When I first entered the sales - driven workforce it was for rival company, Hertz. After several months of shifting management and lack of fleet, but still exceeding my goals, I wanted to move to ABG where I felt even as a representative of another company, the opportunity was endless. Thank you for everything and a great experience through and through!

    Cons

    None that I can think of immediately

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move vehicles of different classes to smaller Airports for more revenue opportunity

    Fun job, poor communication from supervisors

    Former Employee - Part-time Driver in Denver, CO

    I worked at Avis Budget Group part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Friendly people
    -Decent benefits
    -Potential to advance
    -Flexible work schedules

    Cons

    -Bad Pay
    -Total lack of training
    -Horrendous communication

    If you go into an "on-call" position, make SURE they have your contact information and availability, and ASK to be trained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your employees! I was called into work ONCE then never heard from you guys after that. Also offer better training for new hires. Finally, the religious and political talk gets REALLY annoying. It should be policy to keep that out of the workplace.

    Pay is not as competitive as NYC which makes it hard to want to stay in Northern NJ.

    Pros

    Great commission. Managers coached throughout the process. Union based company. Would consider going back if I got the offer.

    Cons

    Nothing really negative to go off of. I liked working for AVIS. If you're into sales, go for it. My highest commission month was 5k, and that's not including my hourly base.
