    Pros

    Able to make a good amount of commission.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Lunch....and that's about it. Oh yes, driving around some of the vehicles

    Cons

    The union and the old rules they carried. The older employees...and I do me older were full of drama and very horrible people behind your back. They would do and say anything to make the younger employees look bad

    Fun job, poor communication from supervisors

    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.

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance, great vacation, easy work. A 9-5 gig with no pressure/stress. Easy to look like a rock star.

    Cons

    Absolutely no innovation and zero focus on the customer. Totally operations/sales-driven culture. Pace is very slow and no drive to innovate or compete with a rapidly changing marketplace. Very incestuous culture, good ole boys club. Leadership is uninspiring. I'm surprise this company hasn't been eaten by the competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    clean house and bring in real talent
