    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.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Management positions open often
    Steady work
    Accessible by public transportation
    You can check your own payroll hours on your phone
    They have fashionable new uniforms

    Cons

    Policy discourages promotions of Union members & mandate them to accept a higher position at another branch with the possibility of returning to their original location

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, Please Please !!! Don't wait 9 extra months to sign our union contract like last time. Our families will be hurting as we wait for only a 50 cent raise

    Pros

    Sadly none, once all of the stress and physical ailments are factored into the equation, because there is nothing positive to speak about Avis.

    Cons

    Everything: tactless people, absurd odds faced daily, no communication, severe lack of camaraderie, horrific management, misplaced employees, no opportunity for growth, bad base, never changing, pay, adverse weather conditions, injuries, and thousands of other issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire individuals with MBA's, MSOL's and post-graduate degrees that will effectively shift your economic and personnel outcomes. Stop hiring the people who procrastinate to such an extent that their non-preparation becomes the bane of every employees life. Also hire operation managers that have College degrees and are sociable. Socially awkward, parasites, who harp on money more than common sense.

    Pros

    Health insurance and having a job that was it

    Cons

    This company promotes stealing from customer. A person stole from the company there and gave free cars to his buddies by simply non charging the contracts, once it was reported and there was enough proof out there, he was simply taken his lead title away. However, other people who were great worker and did their all were fired after they defended themselves being physically assaulted by customers. The cars are never available and the sales team rents them out anyways and the customer service has to deal with it. Don't waste your time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the crooks and train your management. Not 23 year old boys being buddies with their employees on facebook. not to mention dating their staff. Just disgusting
