    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No cap on commission Base pay Benefits Pto Vto Slack management if the location has a union Due to industry high season you have tons of customers

    Cons

    Schedule is by senerioty Management is for customer service and the managers will take off your sell in 2 seconds If you don't sell it will effect your commission negatively Lots of rejection because customers have already been sold to by their travel agent Rental agent is only to upgrade and sell excess insurance that is truly useless Low season is dead High season is crazy and there never is sufficient fleet to meet demands and promises made by company making customers angry and not willing to buy BUT you pretty much set your own prices with upgrades and have tons of customers for high season. I made Over 15k in a month during peak season and averaged 4k a month for the rest of the year plus base pay. It is a very hard sale but once you get the hang of it, it becomes easy. I quit because if I was so good selling to people who didn't wanna buy I can imagine how much I'll make to people who do wanna buy a product. Most sales agents are unpleasant because customers are unpleasant There have been rental agents in the same position for 40+ No room to grow Only airport locations in high tourist areas thrive

    Advice to Management

    Have more patience with sales agents because the job is tough and keep in mind customers know you will take off the sale and only agreed to it because they knew they can get away with a free upgrade from a subcompact to a bmw

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (Less than a 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 Management

    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.


  6. Desperation of ex-cons & other rejects in your Union work force helps Avis continue giving meager raises.You cant strike

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    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.
