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

Pros

Great team of experienced personnel. Half-decent pay, and the car benefits were very handy when fuel costs start to skyrocket. Lots of fun and useful vehicles to drive.

Cons

Lack of support for growth or maintenance of market share. Unrealistic goals and inconsistent accountability. Myopic focus on counter sales at the expense of almost everything else, including operations.

Advice to Management

This business has low profit margins and most customers (and employees) are unhappy. Try harder to make the employees happy, and they will make the customers happy aka Southwest Airlines

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

    Pros

    pay in NYC is about 9.75 hr plus commission which can range from 300-2000 per mth if youre really, really good at selling.
    ample training which really helps in selling
    really great people to work with, very helpful and kind

    Cons

    higher management, not the location managers, can be shockingly unprofessional
    I was once told by an agent that in this company, if a co-worker complains to upper management about you even if the accusation or complaint is unfair or untrue, they will tell you nothing about it and then fire you one fine day out of the blue with no explanation as to why. Wow!

    Advice to Management

    Learn some HR skills. You really need them. You are not better than the rental agents. Listen to employee concerns and dont take sides. Be neutral and fair.

    Pros

    full-time positions almost always available
    will hire almost anyone who can pass a urinalysis
    do not need a degree of any sort
    some great people work for Avis
    easiest job

    Cons

    the company does not value their employees
    little to no recognition for hard work (or poor work)
    low pay
    located in airports usually, probably home to the grouchiest people in the universe

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who work hard, punish those who do not. Smile.
