    Pros

    office culture, drive new cars, not always tied to a desk, rental discounts are pretty good for employees and family/friends. learn alot about cars and insurance replacement system. Grow tough skin dealing with sketchy and dishonest bodyshops and abrasive customers. Lot of room for advancement if you want to work the software for your commission. If you sell the insurance you can become a manager, and dont really need to be liked or have any customer service skills.

    Cons

    cleaning disgusting cars in the elements, difficult customers, software can be slow, bodyshops can be monsters and drive cars when they are not authorized to. Commision structure is unfair and rediculous

    Advice to Management

    need better action plan for distribution center. Distribution drivers often don't even show up when the customer is waiting at the end of the day or on a saturday. Leaves the rental agent or manager in a tight spot bc they look like the one responsible.

    Pros

    You get a free car and gas as a branch manager.

    Cons

    Long hours, bonus plan changes all the time making it difficult to bonus, very little recognition from senior leaders, HR is extremely slow to hire new poeple making the store staff.

    Advice to Management

    Asking your staff to stick it out so to speak while you use the accounting review as an excuse to with hold bonus money from us and keep from hiring new people as replacements for people who leave is completely unfair. Show a little appreciation for the work we put in and support us when we ask for it!

    Pros

    Outside cleaning cars, do not have to deal with unruly customers, get to drive a lot of nice cars, meet people from all over the world

    Cons

    Working as a vehicle service attendant, for me, is terrible. I know what i signed up for but I have just become unhappy with being the lowest man on the totem pole and having to take orders from everyone.
