    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Orlando airport is the busiest location and the lowest paying at $8.00. They start you of with decent shift but when training is over there is no life. Computer system is from the 80's so be prepared to learn a lot of command codes. The handheld system to check in cars are of limited information so be prepared for pissy customers. The whole operation if this company is a joke. People are hired weekly and quit weekly. They are desperate for employees yet don't understand better pay and treatment will keep employees. The security system for checking out car at the gate is a joke and because of the company is cheap and backward system it is very easy to steal a car. Yet management haven't notice the flaws. You would think it cost them more money to train employees every week than to just pay employees more money.

    If you are looking to transfer to a different department, your stuck. Especially if you work in garage and want to make it to the counter of some other area because they are so desperate to keep you. Advancements is only a dollar more is you want to be a lead but the responsibility ain't worth it really. If you decide to come to Avis. I know your response would be when someone ask now you like your job. "It's a job."

    Oh, there is a new system they are using just for the computers and not handhelds but it's running on old computers so it slow. Oh and the networks sucks for handheld units so be prepared to to have angry customers curse you because you can't check them in. The company is cheap and had us in the dark with no power because they want pled to wait over 12 hours to get a cheaper election. Imagine Haiti g customer come for hell with you and a flash light and paper trying to find there car.

    Pros

    If you were fortunate enough to purchase stocks at rock bottom you would have made a mint.

    Cons

    The company is no longer cares about the employees or the customers, its all about manipulating the stock price. Since Tom Gartland took over the company has become volatile at best. Employees especially at the corporate level are being replaced by incompetent YES men and women. At some point it will all come crashing down hurting those that helped build the company.
