Pros

Station Managers are awesome! Very hands on, personable, and readily available to help. If you do your job well, you can make decent money.

Cons

1. Empty Promises- Told there are plenty of opportunities for advancement when there really aren't. Overly qualified people are getting turned away from promotions and the hires come from less knowledgeable people from outside the company.

2. Very hard to get a raise. When you're one year evaluation comes up, they put it off as long as they can.

3. Very low pay compared to other rental car companies. For the amount of work you do, you don't event get paid half of what someone in the same position with Hertz or Enterprise makes.

4. If someone quits they take their sweet time finding a competent replacement. You end up working 6-7 days a week until a feasible replacement is found which could take months.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I understand the economy is in the dumps and revenue has gone down but pay your employees what their worth. And when you tell someone there are plenty of opportunities for advancement, let them advance. Don't hire someone that's overqualified for a low-level job if you have no intentions of promoting them.

    Pros

    They provide a vehicle and gas for managers.

    Cons

    Communication is lacking and if you get along with your your subordinates and they respect you, you alienate your boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to hire more people oriented managers and get out of the 70's style management - management by fear.
