Pros

Dollar Thrifty used to be a great place to work. Benfits were great until 2009 change over. There is some great talent in the field and HQ!

Cons

Started to go downhill just before Mr. Paxton left. Promotions were almost always determined in advance. New job postings would appear on the job board and then disappear less than an hour later. Communication about the big picture for steering the company was never shared. Dollar Thrifty is a "Do as your told, and don't ask questions" company. The very talented employees are taken advantage of and the discarded to the street with ease, while the underachievers fly under the radar.

Advice to Management

Stop the culture of BS and lies to the Board. Tell them the truth so that they can make good informed decisions and see how they react. Let the shareholders hold the Board accountable based on truths.

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

    Pros

    the weekly pay really that's pretty much it

    Cons

    Overworking of vsa, poor communication between magnagement and vsa.

    Advice to Management

    I work at the love field location and there is NO organization when it come to the VSA department. They can't keep vsa weather it's from bad communication on pay, policies or what cars need to be cleaned for blue Chip guest. And a lack of help we have one manager that helps but we should have vsa to do the work not management. Also a general lack of accountability on management for their mistakes. Employees always gets the blame.
