    I used to work for Avis Budget Group and had to resign due to personal reasons. I reapplied and they accepted me back. I hope to now retire form Avis Budget Group!! I have worked for Enterprise and interviewed with other competitors but, Avis is the best!! The culture and the family are like family! I know that Avis Budget Group will become #1 and I'm glad to be apart and I want to help Avis Budget Group get there!!!

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a rental sales agent, you will be compensated if you sell. It is a mandatory part of the job and it will be stressed. They are self-insured so it makes sense that they want you to sell their insurance. Also, more expensive cars just sitting there are losing them money so they really need you to upsell, but that being said the make it worth your wild to do so.

    Cons

    Can be hectic!! Cars break down, get in wrecks and whole models types can get put on recall. You have to be able to calmly take care of customers that might have been let down. It can suck but the company will do whatever it can try to make that not happen. That being said, customers can get very upset, and rightly so. The ability to handle such situations can be very difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to reward the operation's supports staff. Motive them with monetary rewards to kick butt during thin times. I felt like they were sometimes not properly appreciated.

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time

    Pros

    ABG impressed me with their extensive training program. The curriculum is designed to ensure your success within the company. I've interviewed with a few other companies and the fact that ABG's management trading program was 18 weeks with computer based and hands on training made my decision very easy.

    Cons

    Email and wizard numbers weren't ready

    Advice to Management

    Have new hires numbers, emails and curriculum set up prior to their first day for a smooth start on day one.
