    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 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.

    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
