I have been working at Dollar Thrifty Automotive full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Fun, sometimes hectic other times very slow; good for someone who likes to work with public, most customers are tourist on vacation & in positive mind state.

Cons

Mgmt & trainers completely oversold income/commission potential. I am earning min wage/hr plus average of $300-$400/mth commission checks. YOU CAN EARN MORE $$$$ IF....... you want to lie/dupe/mislead customers. They state job performance is half sales dollars & half customer service reviews - BUT as long as sales are high, they could care less about customer reviews. Was told they would rotate holiday hours/days yet I worked Thanksgiving, Xmas Eve, Xmas day, NY Eve & NY day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

onsite manager does not interact nor observe employees at counter, completely relies on sales reports & CEI scores to manage all RSA's. Regional Manager sporadically pops in and due to work schedule you could go days without interacting with manager except for maybe emails.

    I worked at Dollar Thrifty Automotive full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I will have to give DTAG some credit....there are some good people working there, and if you're in the right department with the right people, it can be a rewarding place to work, but ......

    Cons

    The company has focused on nothing but squeezing every last dollar of "value" out of it, probably to either avoid a buyout or maximize it. If you are an exceptional employee, be prepared for a reward of extra work, and don't be surprised if all employees get the same rewards (if any at all). I've never worked at a company that so often gave employees NO incentive to try and do their best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be surprised if/when a mass exodus starts. While the last group of executives may have made more "good" decisions than the prior ones, there are a lot of people in the middle of the org chart that contributed too. If you don't reward them for that, you're going to be left with only those that can't find better options elsewhere.
