    I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very positive attitude towards sales and customer service. From the people who train you, to your branch manager and area manager it seems as though people really love working for Enterprise.

    Cons

    Very long work hours. Often times you get to work before the sun is up and you get home after the sun has gone down in the winter months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Great "2nd tier" corporate job for recent college grads

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

    Pros

    The absolute best thing about working for Enterprise as a recent college grad is that you get to work with a lot of other young people who are just like you. Fraternity men and sorority women and D1/3 athletes from big schools are very common at Enterprise. The atmosphere of the office is always fun, always relaxed, and it is not uncommon to hang out with assistant managers and other management trainees outside of work. Competition is fierce, but rarely unfriendly as everyone looks to help each other and get ahead at the same time.

    One of the cool things is that management transfers people from branch to branch often enough that you get to meet lots of people in your geographic and this will serve you well when you become an assistant and branch manager and need others to do you favors. Another thing comes right from Enterprise's slogan "We'll pick you up." Management Trainees often pick people up and drop people off at bodyshops, service stations, offices, dealerships, and residences. You get to meet and talk with all sorts of people and if you can learn all about what they do and how they broke into their field.... You know in case you want to switch jobs after a year or two.... wink, wink!

    Enterprise is a fairly easy company to get a job with (you need a college degree, a suit, and common sense) and they do not pay well at all to start, but not everyone needs to stay in the Branch Sales/Management track of the company and there are several opportunities to move into other facets of the company like fleet management, car sales, risk management, exotic rental, and much much more.

    Cons

    Compensation is not good to start. Obtaining promotions requires a lot of time, sweat and tears, patience, and a large, large gulp of their sweet green koolaid.

    Also a big aspect of the Management Trainee position is that you have to pick people up and drop people off from their houses, body shops, etc. If you think that picking people up and sometimes feeling like an Uber driver would be uncomfortable or beneath you, then this job is not for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote the all-stars faster before they move on to medical sales where they make tons of money.

    Pros

    They work well with you while you are in school or coming right out of collage. Great benefits including 401K, paid sick days and vacation.

    Cons

    Most of the customer care is work from home which is great for some, but not for all including myself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Out of school they have a great management trainee program, also if you do not have a collage degree they also let you move up from within the company to get to these career paths that most people wouldn't be able to achieve without a degree.
