    I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great experience and recognized as an excellent training program by outside companies. Can advance quickly if you hit your goals. Almost doubled starting salary in under three years. Other areas of opportunities if wanting something other than rental once you are eligible for promotions.

    Cons

    Work life balance is brutal. Long hours with little time for family. Hard to schedule personal appointments because everything is closed when you get off. Industry is under appreciated and general public can be challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to find a way to implement a better work/life balance. Would retain quality employees if this happened- or pay more for the extra hours worked.

    I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Loved working here because I got to meet different people everyday and hear their interesting stories of why they are in need of a rental car. Pay was decent but had potential when you got promoted to have full use of a car everyday as a branch manager. Got to drive different cars all the time so I learned what I liked and didnt like about certain makes/models.

    Cons

    Long hours....worked from 7:30am-6:00pm. At the time I didnt have a kid so I didn't care. But when I think about my situation now, it would've been very hard to work this out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would love if they adjusted the schedule to make it more accomodating for people with familiies.

    Pros

    Great work environment which includes constantly meeting new co-workers making new business relationships and friends too. Get to drive different cars frequently if you're into vehicles. Great management structure with room for advancement.

    Cons

    When the going gets tough, the tough gets going - you can be in professional clothing and have to clean a car in the busy/understaffed situations!

    Best company to start a "career-path" not the next "job on the resume". Work Hard but Highly Rewards

    Pros

    Career opportunities are on performance not seniority so you really have control on the direction you want to move. Sales culture from day one and very competitive- in a good way... Employees respect each other and no-one tries to cheat from each other- "Competition is with you rather than the person next to you". Pay is extremely competitive in comparison to other companies. You run the branches just like if a business owner. Employee appreciation hours and other incentives when performing (gift cards, lunches, paid time off, whatever motivates you....)

    Cons

    washing cars in hot South Florida, long hours (49 hrs per week), but hey, if that was "your business", wouldn't you do it anyways? Besides, it is not hard work... you just have to be willing...

    Majority of upper management are liars. They promote you if they like you. The pay sucks. Please don't waste your time, run far away from Enterprise.
