    Pros

    Commission structure is rewarding once you really hit the higher thresholds. Employees are rewarded for extraordinary customer service.

    Cons

    Smaller of the rental car companies. Don't have the elite fleet options others have. Harder to sell. Sales Training could improve.

    Advice to Management

    Make customer feedback from online surveys more accessible to employees. Uppermanagement should care more than just about sales goals.

    I worked at Dollar Thrifty Automotive full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I will have to give DTAG some credit....there are some good people working there, and if you're in the right department with the right people, it can be a rewarding place to work, but ......

    Cons

    The company has focused on nothing but squeezing every last dollar of "value" out of it, probably to either avoid a buyout or maximize it. If you are an exceptional employee, be prepared for a reward of extra work, and don't be surprised if all employees get the same rewards (if any at all). I've never worked at a company that so often gave employees NO incentive to try and do their best.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be surprised if/when a mass exodus starts. While the last group of executives may have made more "good" decisions than the prior ones, there are a lot of people in the middle of the org chart that contributed too. If you don't reward them for that, you're going to be left with only those that can't find better options elsewhere.
