Great place to start, but not much room to grow after that.

Pros

Very flexible hours. Take vacation whenever you want. Understanding about time off. Great people to work with. Have some activities to do outside of work.

Cons

Lack of growth. Building is old and outdated; not much natural light inside. Not much training for employees. Lack of guidance. Lack of communication from upper level to lower level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better training programs. Communicate more effectively between management and employees. Offer a raise in salary instead of good bonuses. Update building to add more natural light.

    Pros

    Good work hours and a nice work environment. Management team is very fair and pleasant to work for. Overall solid company to work for.

    Cons

    Customer Service Representative job is taking phone calls for 8-10 hours a day and this can become very draining. But it comes with the nature of the position.

    Pros

    Meeting people from all over the world (airport location)
    Genuinly being able to have an effect on a persons vacation

    Cons

    -Large level of distrust between managment and employees (unlike any ive ever seen).
    -Budget has continually made it more and more difficult to make good money from commission by raising the commission tiers/thresholds and by forcing you to take the hit on unavoidable circumstances where you cannot sell. For example, at our location a large number of our customers were vacationers from Brazil. In the last year travel agencies in Brazil are trying to sell protection packages to their customers and keep them from purchasing Budgets, so they literally give them a copy of what our rental agreements look like with big circles around the add-ons and coverages saying DO NOT BUY THIS. So the deck is stacked against rental sales agents yet we still suffered for not be able to sell to them. Even worse if a customer prepays for an upgrade or add-ons over the phone or online, the rental agent has no opportunity to sell them, yet still takes the hit for the length of the rental even though theres nothing to sell.
    -Payroll Issues. Me and others frequently wouldnt get our checks on time, or they would be short and wed have to wait until the next check to be fully compensated. THIS IS PEOPLES LIVELYHOODS YOUR MESSING WITH HERE!!
    -Dealing with long lines of angry customers at times because Budget will "book" them a car online not knowing if they will even have it available at that date. (This is a underhanded sales tactic to "get you in the door")

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your employees happy and they will make your customers happy. Treat your employees like humans and they may stop being forced to treat your customers like nothing more than dollar signs.
