Enterprise Holdings – Why Work For Us?


Taking care of people. That’s what working at Enterprise Holdings is all about.

With a global network that spans more than 90 countries, and with 100,000 team members, it’s also how we’ve become the largest transportation service provider in the world. And as a family-owned, privately held company, we make decisions based on the long-term, sustainable growth of our brands – world-class brands that include Alamo Rent A CarEnterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental. That kind of success leads to amazing opportunities when you join our team. 

Our people are the reason for our success.

By living out our values each day and providing exceptional customer service, we’ve built a strong culture – one in which we bring honesty and integrity to all we do. We work hard, but never forget to have a little fun in the process. For 60 years, our values have been at the root of our success as a team and as individuals.

Our Founding Values:

We value giving back to the communities we serve.

You’ll see it through company support -- such as our pledge to donate $60 million to fight hunger -- and in how we encourage each of our employees to make a positive impact in the neighborhoods where we do business. Our ongoing philanthropic initiatives include:

As an Enterprise Management Trainee, your development will be hands-on.

From day one, you’ll be given real responsibility – and be expected to own it. You’ll take care of customers, connect with your community and live our values. And you’ll learn what it takes to manage a multimillion-dollar business. That’s just the beginning of how we can take your career further.

    I have been working at Enterprise Holdings full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    1. The Employees
    2. Senior Leadership
    3. Opportunities for Advancement
    4. Training/Development
    5. Pay
    Most people who work at Enterprise will tell you that the people are the best part about the company and I completely agree. I have met so many great people at Enterprise and continue to be friends with them even after some have left the company. Furthermore, the upper management has high expectations, but also compassion for employees personally and professionally. Since the company is privately held the Taylor family continues to reinvest and make excellent long term decisions to help provide opportunity for everyone. The advancement opportunities, development and training are second to none. At every single level you continue to learn more about managing people and a business. The pay advancement is phenomenal.

    Cons

    Many people say long hours...However, if you want to advance your career and have financial independence that does take work ethic. The hours it takes to advance your pay at Enterprise when compared to similar financial opportunities in other jobs does not compare. The hours worked by management are between 50-55 a week typically. Having six and seven figure annual pay opportunities with no financial risk on your part make these hours seem extremely fair. If you were an entrepreneur, restaurant owner, lawyer or doctor you would not only be working many more hours, but also have greater debt and financial exposure.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orange, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Enterprise Holdings (Orange, CA).

    Interview

    I was introduced to Enterprise at my college career fair. I met a recruiter and about 2-3 weeks later she reached out to me through email, providing a link to their website in order to apply for the staff accountant position. After applying online, I received an invite 2-3 weeks later to interview at their Southern California headquarters located in Orange, CA with HR. After passing this interview round, I was invited to interview with the accounting supervisors and controller. A week later, I met with the VP of Finance and was told on the spot that I was offered the position. From my experience, a lot of the interview questions were primarily behavioral in order to determine good work ethic, problem solving skills, and leadership skills.
