Pros

Car and gas provided to new managers. Not nearly enough to make up for the cons.

Cons

Summary. The onerous training and responsibilities of the position far outweigh the compensation.

About that car, you have to turn it in and get another one every few days. What a pain. It's just a hook. You'll need it to go from site to site as you train.

Training
Seven months of computer based and field training, and hours of conference calls practicing the sales pitch to take as much money out of customers pockets and but put very little into yours. Every hour of your 7 mo. training schedule is outlined on a beautiful 15 page document, not to mention the hundreds of pages you need to print (on your dime) and read (on your time) in preparation for weekly quizzes.

Pay
Low! Very Low! The initial offer was presented as a salary. Come to find out during some "water cooler talk" with HR, the pay is " hourly for the first 5 or 6 weeks of training" and "no overtime is allowed during training". However the company expects you to work whatever amount of hours it takes to get the job done (when you're on salary). How nice of AVIS.

Support
AVIS spends a tremendous amount of time resources telling you what you need to do to succeed, but provides little resources to help you do it. In the field you'd be hard pressed to find a decent PC and printer. The laptop computers they promised to provide during training never arrived. They didn't arrived for the manager trainees that joined the company months before I did either. I guess they're still on "back-order".

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

    Pros

    Free car and gas, along with free rental car nationwide.

    Cons

    Upper management, Employee moral, working conditions, pay. Management should not have to do hourly employee work 90% of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Take note to the numerous class action lawsuits... they are being filed for a reason.
