I worked at Enterprise full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

You can learn a lot about running a branch in a short space of time. The people make it worth while and the managers meetings in Orlando are a nice perk.

Cons

They claim to reward hard work. They don't - they reward success and often success at ERAC is determined by many factors outside your control - demographics, residual car values etc. Hours can be long and go unrewarded.

Advice to Management

Show more flexibility in your promotion criteria - ensure the best people rise to the top not the people at the best branches. There's a huge difference. Having worked in U2 (Uk West Mids) there are many area managers and others in corporate that should not be where they are.

    I have been working at Enterprise full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    got to drive brand new vehicles, fun interactions with customers and management, Overall a job you will never be bored at...because you are too busy to think.

    Cons

    they dangle the golden carrot over everyones head although upper management knows certain employees have no chance at moving up in the company. Also, they work you as hard as they possibly can. expect to work saturday and some sundays. Even though the branch is closed a lot of management is "expected" to come in and clean cars. ZERO work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    not worth my time...
