Pros

You can learn a lot about running a branch in a short space of time. The people make it worth while and the managers meetings in Orlando are a nice perk.

Cons

They claim to reward hard work. They don't - they reward success and often success at ERAC is determined by many factors outside your control - demographics, residual car values etc. Hours can be long and go unrewarded.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show more flexibility in your promotion criteria - ensure the best people rise to the top not the people at the best branches. There's a huge difference. Having worked in U2 (Uk West Mids) there are many area managers and others in corporate that should not be where they are.

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

    Pros

    - You meet so many different people in different areas of the industry along with all kinds of customers, its an awesome learning experience for life and your career.
    -You learn in any position of the company the responsibilities and keys to running a business successfully.
    -You work hard especially in the retail side and the pay isn't that bad but you put in a lot of hours
    -You can grow in the job and company very fast but its not always that easy. Hard work is hard work.

    Cons

    - Depending on management and managers you can either feel really relaxed and enjoy your job or you can feel the pressures of hierarchy.
    -Like any job especially in the retail side, growth in your position and in the company is dependent on who you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Always remember a company is built on its customers and employees. We treated our customers the best in the industry but sometimes we miss to appreciate how much are employees put in.
