      I have been working at Advantage Rent A Car

      Pros

      Some good perks available. Potential to compete in rental market.

      Cons

      Systems, proves and policies sorely needed. Owners brought in HR leader from another of their companies. One trick pony, using all the same work from other company just changing logos. Other company failing, so not optimistic this addition to HR will help. Also hear bringing over priced vendors based on relations not quality of systems.

      Advice to Management

      Be more selective of who you choose for leadership roles. Don't let fast talkers pull the wool over your eyes.

      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Advantage Rent A Car for less than a year

      Pros

      They can be loyal to their employees. They are a pretty laid back bunch, don;t take themselves too seriously.

      Cons

      Nothing ever gets accomplished here, very bad culture, and they are bleeding money. Wont be in business much longer.

      Advice to Management

      Make people more accountable for their actions, currently there is no repercussions for anything. This company is a bit of a joke.

      Negative Outlook

      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.

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

      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.
