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

Pros

I started with Enterprise as an intern in February 2012, went full time as a Management Trainee in that summer after my graduation, eventually got promoted to a major airport in May of 2013 and put in my two weeks in September 2013.

Enterprise is a great first job. It transforms you from a nervous recent graduate to a responsible adult. The job exposes you to client/vendor relationships, travel arrangements, marketing, managing accounts receivable, administrative efforts and sales. You work as a team with your co-workers who more than likely are recent graduates themselves. The products are easy to understand and selling them is not difficult. If you sell well you will get promoted quickly and make great money- if you cannot sell well (like me) the managers help you and train you to do better or will focus you more towards marketing efforts and back-end administrative work.

The general Enterprise employee is very approachable and easy to get along with- they hire mainly based on your ability to speak clearly and enthusiastically. The initial pay is not bad for a recent graduate (around $14 an hour in most regions) and the career path clear-cut. After a year you will usually receive at least one promotion as well.

Overall, great people, collaborative environment and exposure to many skills required in the business world.

Cons

Long hours, suit and tie (bit much), no facial-hair policy, no commission, etc.

These issues are not overwheming. Pay your dues as a recent grad and this company will either eventually truly reward you or give you the experience for your resume to land the job you want that requires those minimum of x years experience.

    Its all about being at the right place at the right time...if you are in a good location you can sell. If not, your opportunity for advancement is decreased...

    Pros

    Good trainer, supportive classmates, decent medical benefits.

    Cons

    Roadside assistance position had horrible shifts to choose from; you'd be working every Saturday and Sunday, with hours akin to 3 to 1130 pm, with say, Wednesday and Friday off. The company expects you to navigate between 10 and 12 different systems throughout the day-nothing is integrated, and each branch of the company uses different DOS based systems for log in and vehicle availability. The amount of documentation that is expected for each call is silly and redundant, and the turnover rate is high. In my training class alone, 4 people dropped out by the fifth week, out of 18 original classmates. Oh, and the company discourages ever using the "hold" button on the phone, even though the calls will typically be 10 minutes or longer.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a higher hourly wage-$12 an hour is not enough for the requirements of this position. When posting this job online, be specific about the AS400 systems and the number of systems the employee is expected to learn.
