Former Employee - Management Trainee in Seattle, WA
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

A lot of young people makes for a fun and energetic environment; a lot of potential to move up in the company quickly; autonomy even for lowest-level associates; great sales and customer service experience; at the end of the day the focus is still on the customer, they do a good job living up to their customer service reputation; was a great first job out of college, toughens you up and gives you a lot of direct face time which is a valuable experience to carry to any job

Cons

Very competitive environment based on sales performance; long days, physical work (on your feet most of the day, often washing cars); low pay at the start, no monetary incentives for perfomance; can be a high-stress environment during the busy season (summer)

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Great training
    Great learning experience to understand how to run any business
    Everyone starts as an Management Trainee and get promoted from there

    Cons

    Hours are rough, 7-6 with a flex when you work weekends.
    Pay is hourly, and not that great when you work 46-49 hours a week

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees better and don't make everything based off Protection stats, or if you do pay people based on their sales to motivate them a little more. But over all this is a good company that offers great chances of for career advancement

    "Part of their mission is that the company takes care of its employees, for the better?...not so much."

    I worked at Enterprise full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a good place to learn the breadth of the car rental business.

    Cons

    The company says it will reward hard work through advancement but that seldom was the case. The pay for hard, long days and evenings of work was insulting. Having a response to questions about pay or even sometimes serious issues just relating to work could take weeks if not longer. Much to consider before climbing on board.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just automatically believe a manager's words about a problem. Truly value the employee who works in the trenches every day and have your own managers work in the trenches beside those employees...OFTEN.
