    OK ... so far ... transition from DTAG

    Manager (Current Employee) Oakland, CA

    ProsNew cars to drive, plenty of training available in many business aspects, classroom and online. coworkers are respectful. Plenty of promotional opportunity with the willingness to move. 401k, Health benefits are decent, lots of company associated discounts

    Conslong hours, goals and targets are not clear or are moving. Union environment divides local managers and hourly employees. too many conference calls, and spreadsheets. Define insanity - doing the same thing over and over and expecting different or better results. Try some new tactics, especially fleet logistics. Integration of Dollar Thrifty has been rocky. Hiring process is slow

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk for truth and listen to the answers.
    When you see the 'little guy' talk to them, don't hide behind body guards

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good experience, poor pay

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Oakland, CA

    ProsYou learn a lot from working long hours. The skills you gain from this looks great on your resume and will get you recognized by future employers.

    ConsThey do not pay you for how hard you have to work and how stressful the job is. Not much feedback from upper management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease pay the management trainees more. We work very hard but never recognized. Maybe you all should watch Undercover Boss and learn a thing or two.
