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

Pros

- A lot of responsibilities and decision making for new grads
- Very reputable training/career track
- Working with people your own age
- Hardens you up for the real world
- If you can sell car insurance to someone who already has car insurance....you can sell anything...and other companies know that
- Opportunities once you leave

Cons

I won't lie there are more than I can remember...
- Kiss your life good bye! 55-60+ hr weeks for 30-35k
- Work with VERY rude customers (it really wears on you...)
- Most mangers won't let you sit during down time (if you're lucky enough to have any)
- A lot of pressure to make make a really hard sell
- Working in outside conditions (rain, snow, extreme heat, humidity) while in dress slacks and a button up with a tie
- Many false promises from management about your promotion
- Very high turnover/low moral

Advice to Management

You have a lot of kids you take on and you should see that as a huge responsibility to actually develop them as you promised and lured them in during the interview process and not just turn them into car insurance sales people and car washers....very misleading especially with the job title (Management Trainee). I'm glad I had the oppertunity to harden up and move to medical sales ( a lot of recruiters look for Enterprise, just make sure you move up a notch in the company and then apply to other jobs) Enterprise is not a career as much as a jumping stone.
