I worked at Penske as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Pay was above average. Good discounts on merchandise. Nice to learn how to haggle prices.

Cons

Felt the upper-level managers and corporate were driven solely by profits, at the expense of the lower level employees. They would cut costs in just about every department. Also felt a lot of the senior managers were very close-minded, often heard very crude jokes and statements about those that were not WASP.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's not just about the profits. Employee moral matters a lot, and there was not a single person that was happy working there.

    I worked at Penske part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good co-workers, understanding managers and a solid team environment. Very helpful co workers and managers jumped at the oppotunity to show a new employee the ropes or answer questions. good pay. Do your job, try not to screw up and dont be a hero and youll skate along just fine while collecting a nice paycheck.

    Cons

    First week was 'trial by fire'. recevied little structured training and mostky shadowed veteran "sales reps" on the desk. Outdated and glitchy computer systems made for a difficult and frustrating first week. managers were very reluctant to give overtime and if you were close to hitting 40hrs you would be sent home early. Doing the work of 3 people at times all in the name of efficiency of the company. "Book book book" means scheduling a truck even if we dont have it and hoping the paying customer is satisfied with an other than reserved truck for a discount or slightly larger size.
