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

Pros

Fun, sometimes hectic other times very slow; good for someone who likes to work with public, most customers are tourist on vacation & in positive mind state.

Cons

Mgmt & trainers completely oversold income/commission potential. I am earning min wage/hr plus average of $300-$400/mth commission checks. YOU CAN EARN MORE $$$$ IF....... you want to lie/dupe/mislead customers. They state job performance is half sales dollars & half customer service reviews - BUT as long as sales are high, they could care less about customer reviews. Was told they would rotate holiday hours/days yet I worked Thanksgiving, Xmas Eve, Xmas day, NY Eve & NY day.

Advice to Management

onsite manager does not interact nor observe employees at counter, completely relies on sales reports & CEI scores to manage all RSA's. Regional Manager sporadically pops in and due to work schedule you could go days without interacting with manager except for maybe emails.

    I worked at Dollar Thrifty Automotive full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Team was excellent to work with, Some managers more helpful than others. City Manager has little interaction with sales staff unless something is wrong and you're summoned to the vice-principals office for a reprimand. Fair to middling training experience. Computer systems seem fairly up to date and user friendly.

    Cons

    Understaffed at key locations and times giving you little time to meet and greet your prospects to identify their needs.

    Advice to Management

    With the recent merger I would be updating my perspective resumes. Seems to be a duplication of services.

    I worked at Dollar Thrifty Automotive full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good 401 K and health

    Cons

    Low pay, they do not tell you when you interview you have to work, nights (after midnight), holidays and weekends. Company management wants you to lie to customers to make them purchase insurance and other products they do not need. If you do not do this, you make no money. You have to be a real low life person to add 50 or 70 dollars per day to a persons car rental and not tell them and lie to them to do this. This is caused stealing.

    Advice to Management

    How would you like someone to steal from the.
