I have been working at Enterprise full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Enterprise follows a hire from within policy in which every employee starts as a management trainee. You will never have a manager ask you to do something they won't or haven't done themselves. Every level of management has worked their way up and can uniquely relate to a brand new employee.
Most employees truly enjoy coming to work on a daily basis. Having fun in the branches is a must.
The employees and management are given a lot of autonomy to run a branch and not micro managed on every aspect of daily operations.
The starting pay has significantly improved and there is a huge potential to increase your pay substantially in just your first couple of years.

Cons

The customers and accounts can be difficult at times but that can be said for any company or career that deals with the general public.

    I worked at Enterprise full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company benefits are great!
    Employees are generally easy to get along with and socially outgoing
    Great opportunity to learn how to run and manage a business.

    Cons

    Long hours, even though you're sold on 49-51 hrs/wk to start, depending on what office you begin your career, your hours could easily reach 60 hrs/wk. If you're a manager and you want your office to be successful, you will work no less than 60 hrs/wk.
    High stress due long hours and apathetic attitude from upper management whenever performance is below monthly goals.
    Always looking for the new hot employee, so the area manager/company can boast about them in order to make themselves look better for hiring/training that particular employee and set them as an example for other new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the market around you and the team you build before you start pointing fingers around for 'poor performance.'

    I worked at Enterprise full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very young work environment. Most co-workers will be fresh out of college. I made many friends here and had a lot of fun at after-work happy hours. All the opportunity in the world to advance, provided you want to stay with the company. Good dental. "Flex" days, so you can leave a little early one day a week. Job security -- they will fire you if your sales numbers are bad, but they need to be very bad, and bad for a long time before you'll even be put on probation. They offer 401k and match 3%.

    Cons

    Really rough job. Expect to spend most of your day outside in the rain, snow, freezing cold, heat, etc. If it snows, you'll be shoveling cars out all day. Expect to clean many cars in a suit, every day. The dress code is a bit ridiculous for the work you're doing, and they're pretty strict about it. The pay is very poor considering the number of hours you'll be working (minimum 10 hour days, some days up to 14). You'll be expected to work weekends. Depending on the type of location you're working in, you may also work nights and holidays. The health benefits are poor and they only give you 7 paid days off during your first year, which is less than most companies give. Although there are plenty of career opportunities within daily rental, there are barely any in the corporate office, so unless you're okay with working in the daily rental environment for the rest of your career (which I'm sure you don't), you can't really go anywhere. Expect to pick up customers/drive them home. It's extremely awkward and actually kind of dangerous. Customers treat you like crap and don't realize that you need a college degree to work as an MT and that you actually ARE a smart, educated individual. Working at Enterprise is essentially working retail, so if you wouldn't work in a retail environment, this is not for you. Managers play favorites BIG TIME and you'll see people (mainly kiss-asses) get promoted that don't deserve it. Enterprise DOES expect that your job becomes your life -- they expect the world from you.

    I am NOT a lazy person and have worked my whole life. I've worked long hours, OT, jumped through hoops at other jobs, etc. I just want people to know what they're getting themselves into with Enterprise. It is not a bad company, but it is also not for everyone, and had I known what it would be like before taking the job, I never would have. It simply is not worth the pay.
