    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time

    Pros

    None. I would say a lot more. But I don't have anything else to say. My mom told me if you don't have something good to say, don't say anything at all.

    Cons

    hours not flexible. pay is not the greatest. Management does not seem to have a grasp on how to treat employees. A very negative working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like you do your cars and your business will expand exponentially. Remember, your employees are your number one customer.

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time

    Pros

    Fun place to work. I started off working there to put myself through college and ended up loving it! The senior management team from various parts of California took the time to come meet me after I was hired and made sure my training was coming along well. The co workers all helped one another to succeed and reach sales goals and definitely made this a fun place to work. The manager really trusted us and wasn't always over our shoulder which made it less stressful, and he was always there for feedback.
    The pay is about min wage but the opportunity for commission is definitely there. They train really well and I hit my sales target in my first month.

    Cons

    The cons are that the new employees get the night shifts and you have to stay if a flight is delayed and your customer is on the flight (airport location). The pay could be a little higher.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to add, the training is really good and I can tell they care.
