I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (Less than a year)
Good medical, dental, and paid time off. Free use of fleet vehicle with unlimited gas and free insurance.
Company takes tax credits for hiring veterans and reserves/guard members, and claims to be "military friendly" ; however, my first day I was asked if there was a limit on how many of "you people" they can hire. Also, I was given notice of a possible deployment, and my District Manager asked if I could "get out of the deployment" , and further stated that it would hurt my career with ABG going on the deployment. No concern for my family or well being whatsoever... Sexual harassment is off the charts in this place. It makes it tough to do your job, when those who report to you have so much dirt on your bosses, they just go over your head every time you try to be a leader/manager. I was asked to cover up abuse of an employee by other employee's for that individuals sexual orientation. They were more worried about staffing during "season" then doing what's right. In addition, another manager went AWOL with an employee, on the clock to a tune of 3 hours on my shift while they got drunk. Turns out, the manager got a DUI and crashed a company vehicle that night... Guess what? He still works there, and they tried to cover that up to. Unfortunately he looks really bad in his mugshot, and is currently the running joke around the airport. They don't operate from policies and procedures, but rather use traditions based on seniority to basically haze less tenured employee's. Lastly, I've never seen or heard of a bigger abuse of a "salary" in my life. If you"re lucky you will start at 40K a year; however, when you get done figuring out how many hours you worked you make about $12 an hour; pretty sure you can do better... No morals, ethics, or concept of human capital. No concept of team whatsoever, not even among management.
Advice to Management
ABG has a great foundation; however, you really need to get down in the weeds and fix some fundamental ethical and moral issues. Don't hire intelligent educated people with a leadership background if you simply want a filler to work the shifts your precious 15year+ operations managers don't want to work; we will simply find other jobs... Do what's right, even if it means having to bite down and be understaffed. Some behaviors and or actions are just unacceptable and need to be met swiftly with action. Employees respect leaders that are firm, fair, and consistent not ones that smoke weed with them and sexually harass them. Wait, I thought ABG was a drug free workplace? Huh, you could have fooled me... For the record, I resigned from ABG voluntarily. I felt more sick to my stomach going to work there everyday than going down a road riddled with IED's and small arms fire. If you don't want to support the guard/reserves than don't hire us. Our country has been at war for 14 years; its no secret that we get deployed at times. As far as my rights being violated, we're not done...
