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

Pros

Greatest entrepreneur training available with 0 financial risk.
Amazing sales training program.
Meet other go-getter sales people and get paid to network your face off with local business owners.
Take some pretty fun training trips on the company dime.

Cons

Hours are horrible - be prepared to work M - F 7am to 7pm with an hour lunch (maybe) and every other Saturday/Sunday depending on your branch.
When you fast track to management, you will earn a small base increase and a % of profits - no profits = no extra pay.
Your manager will have 0 sympathy for your long hours, they did more than you and that's why they are a manager and you aren't yet.
A gig in the M - F corporate office is a tough one to secure, it comes with less hours and no bonus for profit, but there you will find some relief from the stress of the branch environment.
Don't even bother with this job unless you are 22 and single or want to be single because your spouse found someone who was home and making a decent wage.
You will see your family a few hours on the weekend and kiss their sleeping faces by the time you finish eating the leftover dinner and clean up.
Forget going to the gym- washing cars is your new workout.

Advice to Management

Stop pretending like this is a job for everyone. This is a job for young single people. As you grow into upper management your reward is to work less hours in an office, but you are just pushing people to work as hard you did, rather than finding a better way. No one is against hard work, but if you want to grow as a company, eventually you need people in management who are over the average age of 25. The Taylor family are AMAZING. The leadership you have developer needs to look at his to make it better, not just more economically efficient.

    I have been working at Enterprise part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great sales experience
    Learn the inner workings of a business
    Forces you to be personable

    Cons

    The pay is ridiculous. They expect you to work like a dog, wear a suit and tie, but compensate you as if it were blue collar work. There is a glass ceiling at the branch manager level. Once your there, the odds of becoming an area manager are slim because most of the time there is only one position available. Last, but not least, upper management receives the commission for the lower level employees hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Spread the wealth. I have seen 5 figure commission checks handed to area managers. Some of this should be passed down to the people who actually sell the insurance.

    low pay, worked more than scheduled and forced to clock out to not exceed time, if not top performer manager talked down to me, felt like it was an alcoholic boys club.

    Advice to Management

    stop getting rid of the good managers that take the time to develop trainees
