Excellent experience, tragically flawed

Pros

Employees are FANTASTIC. Nearly every person I worked with or managed was dedicated, hard working, and intelligent. Training and advancement opportunities were good as well.

Cons

The job will ultimately run you into the ground. It seems to be everyone's goal to get out of daily rental from month one. The hours can be brutal, there are extremely high expectations from upper management, but not always the support you need to succeed, and the pay is not at all representative of the work you put in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make it more difficult to pass the management qualification interview, and take better care of assistant managers. This would help retain a lot of quality employees who get burned out at this stage, like myself.

    Pros

    Lot's and lot's of Experience! This company will teach you how to handle customer complaints, how to properly “Sale” products, how to effectively market yourself and how to manage different people. Promotions are based on your numbers, so it's what you do that gets you promoted. I never planed on staying here, and it's been a great career choice!

    Cons

    Lot's of hours! Customers can be a little challenging.

    Pros

    If you want to work in a competitive team environment with endless career opportunities Enterprise Rent-a-Car is the place for you. One aspect of Enterprise Rent-a-Car that I truly enjoy is that it promotes within. You never have to worry about a CEO from another company starting there Enterprise career ahead of you. The company has a very mechanistic structure, meaning, everyone starts out as an MT (management trainee) and works there way through the ranks: MA (management assistant) AM (assistant manager) BM (branch manager). In order to move through the ranks the company sends out a PROMOTIONAL MATRIX letting you as the employee know where you are at performance wise compared to everyone else in your area/region. When opportunities open in different locations throughout the country, the promotional matrix, determines whether or not you are eligible to interview for the position. Another PRO with Enterprise is that the company truly invest in its employees and sends you to multiple training classes, paid hotels/food, and provides the opportunity to build great relationships with many different types of people. You become very close with your fellow co-workers, constantly having fun, while at the same time learning to RUN YOUR OWN BUSINESS. Within Enterprise Holdings there is more than just the rental department, so if rental is not for you, do not turn your back now because the company offers careers in: Accounting, Business Management, HR, Recruiting, Risk Management, Vehicle Repair, Vehicle Acquisition, Fleet, and Enterprise Car Sales. NO matter what your calling may be, Enterprise Rent-a-Car has a career for YOU !! Great Pay, Great Benefits, Great People .

    Cons

    Long hours typically tends to be the biggest negative. Enterprise expects a lot out of its employees but in return will reward you accordingly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing !
