    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.

    Great first job experience. Learn how to mange time, customers and logistics.

    Actually take the time to listen to your employees. However the company is well structured in the fact that no one person is irreplaceable.
