    Pros

    Station Managers are awesome! Very hands on, personable, and readily available to help. If you do your job well, you can make decent money.

    Cons

    1. Empty Promises- Told there are plenty of opportunities for advancement when there really aren't. Overly qualified people are getting turned away from promotions and the hires come from less knowledgeable people from outside the company.

    2. Very hard to get a raise. When you're one year evaluation comes up, they put it off as long as they can.

    3. Very low pay compared to other rental car companies. For the amount of work you do, you don't event get paid half of what someone in the same position with Hertz or Enterprise makes.

    4. If someone quits they take their sweet time finding a competent replacement. You end up working 6-7 days a week until a feasible replacement is found which could take months.

    Advice to Management

    I understand the economy is in the dumps and revenue has gone down but pay your employees what their worth. And when you tell someone there are plenty of opportunities for advancement, let them advance. Don't hire someone that's overqualified for a low-level job if you have no intentions of promoting them.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good co-workers
    Immediate supervisor was supportive
    Benefits are better than most (as long as they don't get reduced as they did in 2008)

    Cons

    Soulless, greedy, non-communicative management
    Absence of solid professionals at top (with one exception)
    Promotions and huge raises for lapdogs and nitwits
    Number crunchers run the place and see employees as little more than possible cost cuts.
    Little recognition or gratitude for accomplishment or sacrifice
    Overpaid leadership receive millions in bonuses, while rank-and-file are told to be grateful for 2 percent annual raises.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company, new ownership can't be much worse.
