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

Pros

Most of your coworkers will be your age, including your manager
Training
Looks good on a Resume (we'll see about that)
Good Sales Techniques

Cons

working 11 hour days (7-6pm and that's if you get out on time)
Mandatory 48 hour work week.
Alot of Customer's are jerks, especially when they have been in a car accident.
Cleaning cars in your Business clothes (after a while, I stopped wearing my good shoes, blouses and slacks...they will get ruined)

The constant pressure of selling every single product that they offer from Management. You will be bombarded with emails from your branch manager, assistant manager, area manager and Group Manager. If your numbers are not doing well.

Bottom line is, Enterprise is a commission based business for management only. They want you to work from the Bottom Up. You will never be able to apply for a Manager Position without going through all the positions & the time frame that you have to stay in that position & sell well. They Promote within the company. The money that the managers make for what they have to deal with isn't even close to being worth it. I feel bad for those who are stuck there

Advice to Management

Cut the employee's hours
increase the job pay
give the MTs &MAs a percentage of their sales.
I think Andy Taylor should go on Under Cover Boss and really see what his company is about. I hope he is a better person than how the company treats their employees.

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

    Pros

    Training is excellent and promotion track is laid out very specifically. Job security is high. Very fun, outgoing environment. Fast pace sales environment. Ability to be a manager and over see all aspects of the business in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    Politics play a large role in who is promoted. You may have the best numbers in the region but your relationship with the area managers will outweigh any numbers you have.

    Advice to Management

    Really take a look at each individual and their managing styles to best pair them with a branch. Place them according to their sales style and do some research in each market to determine such. Also, promote people based on their ability to manage people, revenue streams, and relationships as opposed to strictly numbers and politics.

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

    Pros

    If you can sell well then you can move up fast. Most of the branch employees are recent graduates and are good people looking to make a difference. Good place to start your career.

    Cons

    Over worked and underpaid for most people paying off college debt and taking care of living expenses. Upper Management constantly demands more from the branches and makes empty promises for providing the tools needed to meet those demands.

    Advice to Management

    Give your branch managers the help they need and they will be able to grow the company and profits much more efficiently.
