    I worked at Advantage Rent A Car full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Meet a lot of interesting people, the pay, the company car and gas.

    Cons

    Just merged with EZ RAC, and decided to choose different staffing models to react to the economic issues AKA they're going to replace all the hard workers who were getting paid a decent living with people who will TRY to do the work for $10 an hour followed by false hopes. Don't try to be a hero because as soon as your name gets out that you're doing a good job, you'll be the first to go. You can't trust 95% of the people...

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing the payout tiers for the CSA's. These guys bring you a ton of incremental sales and time and mileage. Give them a piece of the action so that you'll have dependable employees who want to sell and go to work everyday. Good luck with the new "staffing models" as you'll see that there will be a very high turnover rate and they won't want to do the job for $10-$14 per hour (I know I wouldn't). Get your processes...

    I worked at Advantage Rent A Car full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Car and gas expenses paid. I have to say 20 word minimum so I'll reiterate that the car and gas is nice.

    Cons

    Upper management changes every few months, company was bought out by catalyst co. Company changes payout to pay employees less and demands more revenue from agents at the same time changing to be more difficult each month frustrating agents to quit on the spot or not show up for work. Was demanded to be a slave driver rather than a sales manager couldn't keep new employees for more than a few weeks till sales teirs came...

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your customers and employees as mindless and expendable , upper management looking for scapegoats for low profitability. And then mass layoffs to cut expenses with no advanced notice. Not the way to have happy employees just look at the yelp reviews to see what your public perception is.

    Freedom to manage as you needed to, in order to get results.

    The decisions made by upper management costed many locations to be closed.

    Pay just as much attention to detail in managing the return process as you do the frontline sales process.
