    Pros

    The on the job and classroom training that you will gain from this program is invaluable. I would recommend any young graduate looking to get into sales or management to go through this program.

    Cons

    There are long hours, you will be washing a car in a suit, you will most likely have to work at an airport location which will subject you to working nights, early morning, outside in harsh conditions, and on holidays and weekends. With that being said, I still do not regret the training that I have taken away from this experience.

    Advice to Management

    Create more short term goals and small wins for management trainees like bonuses or little ways for them to earn commission while they are training for advancement.

    Pros

    You're expected to complete multiple tasks in one day. So if you like multitasking this is the position for you. It's also great to meet so many different types of people. Management is very local. So since every Office has its own culture it's hard to generalize.

    Cons

    Lots of hours for very little pay.

    Advice to Management

    Take people who can't sell off the floor but don't fire them. Put them in other essential operations roles.

    Pros

    Enterprise offers real world experience that truly is invaluable. Their management team and training program will prepare you to interact with people from all walks of life.

    Cons

    Very long work hours. Pressured into selling a product customers may not need. Micro Transactions all day every day.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of your moto. Invest in your people and profits will follow. When you are working 50+ hours a week, a work life balance can be tough to find.

    A very well rounded company. They always hire from within so there is usually no worry about anyone coming in from the outside and taking an promotable position.

    Cons

    They days are long and the work can be tiring, but what job isn't? It can be difficult to manage home life and work life.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to management, the company is ran perfectly fine, and I don't think there is anything they could do better.
