    I worked at Volvo Rents full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exceptional Culture
    Local Decision Making
    People are Valued
    Solid Benefits Package
    Solid Salary

    Cons

    A few cases of cronyism and nepotism
    Unclear direction from upper management
    Lack of Clear Communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the long term goals of the company with clear and concise communication down to the field. Listen to regional and divisional team members as their input can be just as valuable as the VP's. Promote a network of growth and expansion with a closer eye to the current financials, demographics and culture of an acquisition.

    I have been working at Volvo Rents full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company has very good benefits and the pay is not bad for what you are asked of you to do.

    Cons

    The local leadership is not very strong and the oversight doesn't seem to be to strong over that entity as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time visiting stores and speaking to the hourly employees. You have some great employees in the stores that you guys can get some great insight from.
