    I have been working at Advantage Rent A Car full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Big enough to be a player in the nationwide market but small enough to allow employees to quickly create change and make improvements to processes and service that will benefit the customer and the employees.

    Cons

    Working to overcome less than stellar reputation created when owned by previous entities.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee engagement. Positive environments create happy customers.

    I worked at Advantage Rent A Car full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent pay. Fast pace.

    Cons

    Corporate/HQ has no clue how to operate rental company. The company that currently owns AEZ is NOT equipped to run a rental car program. They lie, manipulate even had a CEO in a lawsuit for false documents on repaired vehicles. They love to promote the scum workers who are willing to turn their head. Two years we had zero legal manual contracts. Locations take hits for lack of direction and responsible to operate under...

    Pros

    Independence, your decisions are yours to make for the most part

    Cons

    Unless you plan to make a career here do not go above and beyond. Upper management and Hr only care about hourly employees. They can get away with anything. Once they called one of the managers a racist because he tried to uphold company policies. Due to some so so investigations he got fired. So if you really want a job at Advantge make sure it’s only hourly jobs cause there is less chance you get noticed. If you choose...

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

    Pros

    That's a tough one; company does not seem to have a direction, appears to be on the upswing one moment, and the next, they can't pay bills. Tremendous potential is there.

    Cons

    Extreme disconnect, senior staff concerned about self preservation over company success. Financials murky at best to locations.

    I worked at Advantage Rent A Car full-time

    Pros

    You can get some experience of sales/rental car business. And good experience to serve the most angry customers due to company policies.

    Cons

    Fishy sales techniques are acceptable. Lots of issues with customers and a very stressful work environment. Unpaid overtime for managers.

    Advice to Management

    The company was sold 3 times during the past 3 years and Salt Lake location lost its spot at the airport due to lack of good corporate management.

    Pros

    Free car and gas down time

    Cons

    Worst company I ever worked for in my entire emoyment history. Very unoragnized, unprofessional, no consistency with policy and procedures. Upper Manager is never on the same page and never around. The merge with Ezcar has made it worst. Don't work here you will be very unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear and be HONEST with your employee's and management team.
