    The most disorganized place to ever work. Overworked and under paid.

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free car and free gas and no cost insurance on the car.
    The ability to use the car for personal use.

    Cons

    Working 50 hours a week plus for salary.
    Some weeks you will work 55 to 60 hours a week.
    Churn rate of employees is high with rental sales agents.
    If there are call offs you will do other employees jobs like renting cars,washing cars, checking in cars and shuttling cars.

    Pros

    Health Insurance, 401K with 6% matching

    Cons

    Inept management, constant micro-management, station manage spying on employees, non-compliance with the Corporate Ideology, customers constantly conned into "up-sale" items, juvenile type contests devised by managers with rewards of "Bling", major safety issues in car return area not addressed, preventive maintenance intentionally overlooked in order to rent more vehicles, a “he said - she said” backstabbing work environment, tight knit good ol’ boy network, filthy work conditions, terrible work schedule....need I go on?

    Initially ABG is painted to be a happy place, as depicted by the indoctrination DVD, chock full of sing-song pleasantries of the Corporate mantra. However 5 minutes on the job and the indoctrination was nothing more than a mere failure at brainwashing the employee. It is completely the opposite and violates every principle of customer service that ABG supposedly stands for

    My advice: Unless you are into heavy drama, save your health and find another job. ABG is not worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The GM needs to put himself on the front line more to see what is actually going on and stop changing things for the sake of job justification. If it works, don't fix it!
    The Airport Manager needs to begin to appreciate her employees instead of acting as a Prison Warden. Treat your employees with respect and reward them accordingly for their outstanding performance - and not with a candy bar either!.
    Managers need to be on the same page. Too much contradiction in daily operational policy. Make yourselves shown instead of hiding in the back office.
