stay away, far away

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at Avis Budget Group

ProsI received regular paychecks
I had some great co-workers
The uniforms (pants, shirts, ties, hats, outside weather related outfits) were provided
Insurance coverage

ConsI could go on forever & ever about the horrible experiences I had working at Avis. It all comes down to management & their belief they can do no wrong and are perfect in every way. They were also very lazy. They only care about themselves & not their employees, customers or other managers. Many times I heard something along the lines of, "I don't care, that's not my shift" or department or whatever. They were very re-active rather than being pro-active. It's all about sales, sales, sales. I get that part. Profits are good. Profits by screwing your employees & customers in the short term does not equate to profits in the long term. Management by fear is a favorite tactic. Once the economy gets better people will be leaving there in mass. How bad is it when you have high turnover in a poor economy? There are quite a few long term/lifers working there but there are 4-5 times that many that last less than a few weeks. Mandatory overtime because they can't/won't replace those that leave. Working 6-7 days a week for months while being short-staffed. Inventory management is horrible....hundreds of cars in return lane, 10 on the ready line, with 20 customers coming off each consecutive bus. "We're working on it, just be patient...." That's the tip of the iceberg.....seriously, after 2+ years I could go on & on & on. Thankfully I finally found my out & bolted out of there. I do find it funny that it took 2 people to replace me on the shifts that I was previously working alone, and they're both now gone too.....

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees.
Realize you're not perfect
Treat your employees with respect, not as if they're a necessary evil
Get rid of the gestapo-esque attitude

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Wouldn't Recommend Working Here

Rental Sales Agent (Current Employee)
La Crosse, WI

I have been working at Avis Budget Group


Pros: Station Managers are awesome! Very hands on, personable, and readily available to… 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… Advice to Senior Management: 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… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
