    Coworkers, some management and benefits are decent.

    Stop managing with fear by writing up your employees every time they sneeze. Restructure your commission program so it is in line with the car rental industry. Stop using wage theft as part of your business model.

    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.

    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...
