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

    Pros

    Pay rate is decent, however you do get a raise fairly quick.
    If you sale the commission is great.
    You have peak hours and very slow hours, so sometimes you basically get paid to lounge around.
    You can sit in the rental cars to get familiar with their benefits and features to sell.
    You work indoors majority of the time; you may have to go outside to help a customer.

    Cons

    You get all of the complaints from the customer.
    Seniority bidding for hours- the closing shift (5pm-1:30am) only has 2 people working the entire building after a certain time; which is not good for customer satisfaction.
    There’s no management in the building to help assist with situations that arise after 12am.

    Advice to Management

    Communication needs to be better, so everyone can be on one page.
    The entire building and location needs renovation- there’s not even a water fountain for thirsty customers, nowhere for employees to put their coats and belongings in the winter and everything just looks tacky and rundown.
    Need new, working computers.
    Needs interactive activities and holiday decorations to boost morale and spirits.
