    Good Start to a career

    Management Trainee (Current Employee) Columbia, SC

    ProsGreat potential to promote, work experience here looks great on your resume

    Consnot enough work/life balance, professional dress to wash cars... not for me

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on providing more support to middle management. They are the front line of what a management trainee comes into contact with, and it would be best if they are prepared and professional towards the management trainees. Only one assistant manager in my branch conducted himself in the appropriate manner.

    Easy Pay
    Opportunity to meet all types of different cultures of people.
    Opportunity to test drive a variety of vehicles

    ConsNo advancement. Unless you have a degree, you're at a dead end.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop acting as if you own your employees, when in reality, their the ones that run the operation, and drive profit!

    Hard work and good sales will pay off

    Branch Rental Manager (Former Employee) Columbia, SC

    ProsThey always promote from within so you never have to worry about them hiring a manager over you who has not been in your shoes and that hasn't done the task that you have done. Very easy to get along with co-workers and usually I found myself hanging out them outside of work as well.

    ConsIf you don't excel at sales it will be harder to get promoted even though you may excel well above other employees in other key areas. The work days can tend to get long but on the plus side you usually have the weekends off or are getting off on Saturdays pretty early. Starting pay is pretty low but after being promoted to assistant manager and above the pay gets better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at the big picture when promoting instead of focusing mainly on sales to promote more well rounded managers. I know for myself I was average at sales and got passed up for some promotions when I truly believe that I was the best option for the position and proved it at different locations by making those branches more successful with better employees. Sales is not 100% of the job as a manager.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Insurance sales is the job...

    Management Trainee Intern (Former Employee) Columbia, SC

    ProsLearn a lot of information but you definately have to like "personal selling" in order to really enjoy the job. If you don't like to sell car insurance, don't work here.

    ConsHave to wash cars all the time and deal with angry customers that were just in an accident most of the time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think they should reinvent the buildings and entire design and employee clothing to be more updated. People giving you a car look stupid wearing suits when your renting a chevy aveo...
