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

Pros

Sales, marketing and business training. Also, if you really pay attention, you can learn a lot about running a business.

Cons

You will work like a dog, and not make much money or receive much recognition come promotion time. They promote guys they like into management, not necessarily people who deserve or have earned it. Also, these people will suck the life out of you, as overtime is mandatory. In addition, they always have mandatory after work activities, like bowling and stuff you really don't want to do. The work life balance is horrible. You have to clean cars and sell. Sell,sell,sell. If you don't sell, you won't get promoted, but if you do sell, you still may not get promoted and you won't make a dime off of what you do sell. Overall, its a place to start right out of college, but I wouldn't stay for more then 6 months to a year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote people who work hard, not just the guys you like hanging with.

    I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The work is taxing however, if you can make it there - you can make ti ANYWHERE!!! ERAC looks good on the resume because of its sales driven nature and its perceived focus on good customer service. Great starter job but only for 1-3 years at the branch level. Don't worry, you will never have a shortage of sympathetic ears re: a days work.

    Cons

    College educated employees washing cars, cleaning garages, going into undesirable areas to Repo cars. It is VERY $$ driven - the employees include very desirable grads who have bought into the "run your own business" mantra but ERAC exploits that youthful energy and naivity of what they are monetarily worth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The business model works and if you made it to management, you'll retire there or be encouraged to retire when you have run your course. Just be mindful that jaded and fearful employees can sabotage a branch - keep your people content and give a measure of job security to make the "job" more of a career. Thank you goes a LONG way.
