    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time

    Pros

    Great team to work with. Manager did everything to teach the ins and outs of sales.

    Cons

    Hourly pay is just okay but you do have opportunity to franchise after you become a manager and hit the right numbers

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. My manager was awesome.

    Pros

    Excellent team atmosphere, very understanding and they really want you to succeed and they provide the tools to get there

    Cons

    Slow, bureaucratic sometimes, but what can you expect from an industry that has very little to no growth

    Advice to Management

    Be bold, take the risk, expand Zipcar, advertise.

    I worked at Avis Budget Group part-time

    Pros

    The Avis management was very flexible and worked around my schedule to help me out.

    Cons

    The pay could have been a little bit better, but no other complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes they want to blame how agencies are doing on their employees. When in fact it just may be a slow month for people renting cars in that area.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Free use of a car, insurance and gas. Lots of proper training. Advancement opportunities. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Difficult work life balance. Fleet can be better managed in order to meet daily reservations and maintain a good or high level of customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Needs more rental agents and service agents to handle large volume of rentals. Needs to streamline excessive reservations to allow front line agents to perform non-reservation rentals.

    Pros

    Salaries are decent. Benefit options are rather good. Extremely hard working senior leadership team with good strategic vision. Opportunity for relocations in Operations.

    Work life balance is a challenge at times. Often asked to take on a lot of work when coworkers leave and are not replaced. Opportunities for advancement are rare in some departments.

    Advice to Management

    Staff is stretched too thin in many departments.
