I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Ability to work under different managers and learn their management styles. Seeing both good and not so good styles helps you develop your own. You can have your hands in the "books" from day one. No question is off limits when you look at the P&L statement with management. You can help create goals and track progress, implement your ideas on how to improve sales. You can help gain new business and maintain the business partnerships we already have, as well as assist with training new hires. Great place to work to get some management experience.

Cons

There is only one way you can get promoted--sales directly to the customer. One way you can bring money into the company is through gaining new accounts. These accounts bring in consistent revenue for years to come. This doesn't count for anything...but a one time sale to a customer that may bring in an additional $150 in a week is the only thing they care about.
If you like a quick sales approach, you will succeed and have a great career at Enterprise. However if you like to build a relationship (like you do when you gain a new account, as I mentioned above), this job is not for you.

    I have been working at Enterprise Rent-A-Car

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Great training
    Great learning experience to understand how to run any business
    Everyone starts as an Management Trainee and get promoted from there

    Cons

    Hours are rough, 7-6 with a flex when you work weekends.
    Pay is hourly, and not that great when you work 46-49 hours a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees better and don't make everything based off Protection stats, or if you do pay people based on their sales to motivate them a little more. But over all this is a good company that offers great chances of for career advancement
