    I have been working at Dollar Thrifty Automotive full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Only one pro.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible. It is a car rental company, but you run out of cars. Therefore, you have 20-30 customers yelling at you due to you having no cars. It is a very stressful environment and the total morale of the company is very low. DO NOT APPLY. You will not be happy.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new job.
