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

    Pros

    No college education needed, flexible schedule, fun work environment

    Cons

    No opportunity to advance within company (connected to Enterprise, so must transfer and start from the bottom to advance), company culture is competitive but it's almost humorous, not in a good way , very young crowd, company lacks modern values, uniforms are stuck in the 80's.

    I worked at Alamo Rent A Car full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pay is what keeps you striving to sell as much as you can. I do believe this may only apply to the large locations.

    Cons

    Managers don't all agree with "rules" some customers are allowed to break the rules when other customers aren't. Same applies for high selling rental agents being allowed to break rules that normally would result in being fired if the employee were only just making their tiers.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, even better if you can meet some sales quotas. Most products are easy to learn so it doesn't take long before you can jump into the Rental Agent sales role.

    Cons

    Minimum to no training, most of it is shadowing other Rental Agents. Management is always a mess and different managers have completely different expectations of their employees. Always understaffed and managers rarely jump in to help with long customer lines.

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

    Pros

    Down time when it’s not summer

    Cons

    Childish, racially segregated work environment. Branch managers are fired or quit every few months. Supervisors do anything to make quotas and the investors happy which is disregard all employee needs, complaints and issues . Most employees in San Francisco ca are Asian and u better believe they stick together. At my branch the supervisor would give other Asians PTO days so often we knew they were up to no good . Rental discounts could b much better and they are so cheap they don’t fix or upgrade anything! Once we had 4 buckets over over flowing sewage water sitting in our wash area for a month because it cost money to discard of it
