I have been working at Enterprise full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Enterprise is a company that pretty much gives you an unheard of level of control over business functions from day one. You are empowered to make your own decisions as to balancing customer service and profit. You will learn how to run a full blown business. The job is performance based so if you sell well (which it is a sales job, they tell you this in the interview) area managers will beg you to apply to be a manager in their area. Once you become an assistant manager you gain a base salary and a percentage of your branches monthly profits which again are performance based. The MT program is designed to show you the how where as the manager positions show the why.

Cons

-The work life balance is quite challenging.
-As an MT you work just as hard (if not harder)to learn everything while busting your butt to sell and you are underpaid (this is on purpose though).
-If you don't have good direct managers (ie assistant and branch) you can lose morale quickly.
-People get hired as MTs and coast or don't take the job seriously, negatively impacting profit and morale. A large % of your ranking is determined by branch esqi (customer service score) so if you have mediocre co workers with lackadaisical attitudes your performance is masked by their lack of effort. Request a transfer asap.
-Complain enough and erac gives you whatever you want.

Advice to Management

Stagger employees so what the work day is less taxing with employees overlapping at peak times but working about 8 hrs a day keeping the annual salary the same.
Stop giving away free stuff to everyone that complains. They know we do this and some are abusing the system.
Pay MTs a little more.

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

    Pros

    Great people, numerous happy hours, promotions are from within the company, bonus check every month

    Cons

    Hours most days from 7am -7pm, ruining people's vacation when you don't have their vehicle at the reservation time.

    Advice to Management

    Sell out when vehicles aren't available & look up what work/ life balance is.

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

    Pros

    Looks good on resume. A high energy environment.

    Cons

    They discriminate against people due to age and race. They are very unprofessional when you don't fit into their target group: young, dumb, and gullible. It's funny that a company with such an old man at the top could allow his company to use age discrimination against people young enough to be his great grand children...amazing!

    Advice to Management

    Fire your recruitors: oh wait, you will once they reach 35.
