    Pros

    None. They had good people and they let them go because of money. But over 1 million dollars in cars are now missing

    Cons

    They let the good people go and the lazy idiots stay. People steal cars all the time and corporate doesn't even know or care.

    Pros

    Can"t think of any pros.

    Cons

    They make you work overtime and change your schedule. They have gone through so many employees since I started working there. There is only one manager who cares about how you feel.

    Advice to Management

    They bring people from other companies instead of promoting from with in.

    Increase pay and restructure payout plan and hire actually qualified managers to run your locations. You will produce better results with revenue and have a happier staff. I used to enjoy coming and selling, now I dread coming to this God forsaken job!

    I worked at Advantage Rent A Car full-time

    Pros

    I was let go because I needed a few days off due the a urinary tract infection. They pay well if you are OK lying to customers.

    Cons

    They cheat people out of money. Worked 12 hour shifts by myself. Management not present.

    Advice to Management

    Absolutely nothing. You guys have it made and you know it. With no conscious, no direction, and no real purpose, you guys just keep the money rolling.
