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

    Pros

    Coworkers, some management and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Management as a whole, including upper management and the commission structure.

    Advice to Management

    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.

    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...

    Advice to Management

    Support your front line managers more by giving them the tools to succeed. Stop overbooking. Again Scott Davido do you read your own reviews ?

    "Got bought out"

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Advantage Rent A Car

      Pros

      Fun work environment. Room for growth. Room for advancement, especially if you're open to moving. Get different company cars almost daily.

      Cons

      Upper management out of touch with what is going on in the districts. Bonuses were based on open rentals in the city instead of new accounts we signed.

      I have been working at Advantage Rent A Car full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Base salerly always paid on time, company car and little oversite from upper management.

      Cons

      Basically doing a bunch of hourly jobs such as: cleaning cars, renting cars, moving cars, and preparing new cars for rent and old cars for auction. Upper management will leave your location without nessecary means to thrive, examples: radios for shuttle drivers, uniforms, gps units, ability to maintain proper staff, cleaning supplies, oil changes for cars, vehicle licenses and...

      Advice to Management

      The company is profitable and has been for some time. Invest back in employees (current employees have not seen a raise in 4+ years). Seems like the corporate folk in Florida don't have a clue on how to support there locations elsewhere in the country.

      I have been working at Advantage Rent A Car full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Co-workers, company car and the lack of discipline which can come to work late and get away with it.

      Cons

      Management no care attitude, Upper Management sits and barks orders while people in the fire know differently.

      Advice to Management

      Stop looking at nurse and listen to the people in the line and fire. It is easy to steal money that you are not doing nothing. Get your butt on the frontline and deal with no cars, customers waiting, customers being irate and see how you deal with it. Cowards are what you all are.

      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...

      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.

      Pros

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

      Cons

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

      Advice to Management

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