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

    Pros

    I did actually work with at least 2 to 3 other associates.

    Cons

    Management was very backstabbing constantly taking vacations couldn't ever be found or bothered and if you told on other associates that were talking about completely inappropriate things(sexual positions, etc) in front of children at the counter you lost your job, just supposed to deal with people that had no customer service sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because a manager has been there for a while doesn't mean they should stay at the same place, maybe they need to be moved around so as to not hide all the bad and complacent things that are happening or should I say not happening at AVIS. I loved my job as I was able to train and help individuals and families but management was the worst.

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    one reason this company is good to work for is the benefits a very cheap because of the union

    Cons

    This Is my first union job and will be my last it makes the place very disorganized. you got people who've been there for a long time with the union and they are very lazy. once you start working here it's very easy to get accustomed to getting lazy once you get into that union because you get no benefit to working hard!! also this union had a large minority group who take advantage of union at other workers/Mgt expense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be consistent what's running everyday business, a lot of current and former coworkers think the place is very disorganized!!

    Pros

    Fun people to work with and for
    Flexible scheduling
    Continuous on the job training
    They definitely strive to see you succeed

    Cons

    The job consists of convincing (read: tricking) people into paying more for their rental than they intended to. Your job is to explain to them why the vehicle they chose isn't good enough to do what they wanted. Reserved a mid size? You need a full size! Reserved an SUV? You need a 12 passenger van! Even if you reserved a Camero convertible, you will need to convince them that they should upgrade to the challenger or any other car.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm sure the upsell pressure comes from the top down, so management does its best when it strives to ensure the strategies are shared, revised and compared often.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
