Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Chantilly, VA

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

Pros

Full health benefits and 401k (w 3% matching) after 60-90 days
Recession proof industry
No previous training necessary, all you need is a bachelors or 5 years commission sales experience
Fun people to work with
Good management training
Able to move to different departments of the company if you don't like rental
Good discounts for personal rentals

Cons

Long hours and you work on Saturdays
You're an hourly employee until you get promoted, then you are salary and commission in management
You have to wash cars in your suit
Good customer service is not for the faint of heart, so be ready to bend over backwards and work hard
Rain, sleet or snow, you go into work. Very rarely does Enterprise close
All the family will come out of the woodwork for rental hook ups

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't just preach work life/balance, actually put it in practice and don't let your employees get burnt out.

    I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Led to other job opportunities once promoted, met a lot of awesome people who are similar to you, you dont take a real job for granted after a year of ERAC, free beer

    Cons

    Awful Pay, once you get promoted hours increase and pay doesnt increase enough. You see people at their worst, recieve no respect from customers. Work life balance is the biggest inside joke in the company be prepared to live in a run down rental office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work life balance, work life balance

    Doesn't Recommend
