    I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Meet lots of friends. You also learn how to run your own business. They gie you all the tools and education you could imagine to run your business. They will also instill in your soul "great customer service".

    Cons

    Nothing good will come from this company for anybody. Run the other way. The amount of hours you put in are crazy. Once you become a salary plus commission employee, there will be several weeks you put in over 70 hours. I have worked as much as 90 in the airport market. You will not get paid nearly what you are worth. 2/3 of your commissions will come from the re-sale of vehicles, and not from branch profits. That means your pay will not be consistent and your personal efforts are not rewarded financially. They always threaten jobs if you don't perfom but never act on it. This means people that put in little effort are rewarded the same as you and nothing will change. You will never get the reconition you deserve. Enterprise believes in promoting people that can sale damage waiver over 35% of the time. They assume this is the only gauge to measure sales ability of a person and that is sad. You should also observe that most of the branch managers and above have been with the company for several years, while most of the employees are new hires. This should tell you something about the turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people what they are worth and stop trying to upsale at airports. Listen to your employees. I have never seen a company completely ignore reality like you do. Stop trying to "sell the moon" to employees. They will get the big picture in the first 90 days and realize they have made a major mistake.

    Pros

    Looks great on a resume!!! It also gives you a crash course on how to grow and develop in the business world. Teaches you how to interact between customers, upper management, and employees. Very fast paced environement that teaches you the art of multi-tasking.

    Cons

    Performance based company that doesn't pay for performance. The hype is all about growing your pay plan. The kicker is, don't move stores. Once you move, your pay plan and commission get readjusted to make a LITTLE more; no matter the responsibilities. The pay is not endless and you are capped. Upper management will never tell you this, but they'll find a way to spin it so you think you'll get paid well for your efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees. It's like working at a high priced sweat shop. The alure or money isn't everything. Work/Life balance is something that the new generation wants. If you have high demands, then supply the resources to make it so. Don't pretend that it's been that long since you were in our shoes. Everyone's are under pressure, so show us some love and give us the resources. Otherwise, you'll continue down the path of a 58% employee retention.
