Rental Sales Rep- Good job

Rental Sales Representative (Current Employee)

I have been working at Penske Truck Leasing full-time for more than a year

ProsLots of room for growth and pretty much even the VPs all started on the bottom rung. I got promoted to a salary position (with company car, phone, computer, etc) within 6 months of employment. The work can be challenging and hectic but as long as you are in the right district, you will work with an impressive group of go-getters that legitimately want to see you succeed.

They also really invest in you here at Penske. I've been to training in Pennsylvania 3 times in the 2 years that I've worked here and when you are there, the highest people in the company come to speak with you as well as take you to dinner. The people that create our computer systems nationwide know me by name because I e-mail and call them directly with questions so regularly. No one is ever too good to talk to anyone. Truly amazing.

ConsIf you are truly passionate about the trucking industry, there are no cons. The only cons, for me, revolve around the fact that though this is an awesome company, I don't necessarily wake up every morning wanting to discuss fuel mileage, new laws and regulations, etc... If you live and breathe trucking, there will be no better company.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou are doing a great job! Thanks for recognizing that even us little guys are important!

I have learned how to excel and shine above peers at the same level in an organization that hires from within.

Assistant Rental Manager (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at Penske Truck Leasing full-time for more than a year

ProsLearned great time management skills of people, inventory, and customers.
Organization and prioritization have been improved greatly.
Many roads can be taken; sales, managment, logistics, maintenance, etc.

ConsAt times trucks need to be cleaned while wearing dress clothes.
Get stuck in between difficult situations between managment and sales.
Have to be ready to work outside in all temperatures.

Advice to Senior ManagementFollow through with what is promised to lower level employees.
Make entry level employees feel as if they aren't pawns to the overall picture.

Dedication at every turn

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Penske Truck Leasing full-time for more than 3 years

ProsActive atmosphere, above average pay, top-notch benefits, good mentorship, Development of interpersonal skills, promote from within

ConsLackluster training, facilities need revamping, marketing behind the curve, underappreciated entry-level employees

Advice to Senior ManagementIf the goal is to promote from within and push for upward career progression, that means that all worthy employees need to be on that track. Too many lifers plugging up the system and given way too much slack for depreciating performance.
