    Use of company vehicle. Decent benefits. Staff are great to work with. Opportunities to promote. Can easily transfer and move around the country.

    Pros

    As Payless employee I really enjoy the company, I have an amazing manager that works hard for us rental agents to make sure we are always set up to excel in sales. As a whole company ABG I really enjoy working for the brand, something I definitely wear proudly.

    Cons

    At some locations it feels like Payless is more of the step child to Avis Budget. The cleanliness of our cars could definitely improve, but at this location we have very little say in the cleanliness, so it's a bummer.

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Pay
    - Benefits
    - Plenty of advancement opportunities

    Cons

    - Company culture: Teamwork is non-existent here. Everything is gloom and doom even when things are going well. Upper Management does not care about improving processes and making things more efficient.

    Upper Management: Out of touch with what the real issues are and never actually develops action plans that fix problems. They would rather treat the symptoms than get to the root of the problem. They give you pointless tasks that need to be completed immediately even when it's busy, yet complain when your original tasks are not completed,

    - High turnover: Was understaffed while I was there and had us doing the work of 2 or 3 people. They constantly lied and told us they were hiring people but month after month nothing changed. How can you be in a hiring freeze when your understaffed and peak season is approaching? Made no sense but they constantly told us they were hiring people only to come back and say they were in a hiring freeze.

    - Work life balance: Being an operations center they are open everyday outside of New Years Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. This would not be a problem if they were staffed fully but becomes one when they have you working 48-56 hours a week and no overtime.

    - Our desktops were 10+ years old and it showed. I had used those same models when I was in high school several years prior.

    Advice to Management

    - Encourage and value employees' input
    - Do more to show you appreciate the hard work your employees' do
    - Be committed to change
