    At the branches, you have no work/life balance. Corporate is where you want to be. You can get promoted fairly quickly.

    I have been working at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The training program is extremely well structured. You learn how to run your own business from the moment you step on board. However, you are constantly understaffed. It's a great "first job" for people just out of college. You constantly get invited to company events (bowling, happy hours, etc.) which is very intriguing, and sometimes can make up for the consistent pay that is around $40k year to start.

    Cons

    There's a low work/life balance. You are constantly understaffed at the branches. If you get promoted to another department (fleet management, business rental sales, car sales, accounting) there's a MUCH better work/life balance. The pay is good, but you don't have time to enjoy your money with fun stuff because you end up working about 60 hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company promotes only from within, which is a great perk for new employees because current management has "been there, done that" with whatever the new employees are doing (cleaning cars, checking in customers, promoting insurance, etc.).

    I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car

    Pros

    Tough management but they helped me learn. Met nice coworkers. Your next job offer will be much better than this and you will be happier.

    Cons

    Terrible first year. They seem to make sure it will be a rough one. Benefits are horrible no matter how long you worked there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better benefits. Stop advertising that you hire from the bottom half of the college grads

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
