    Pros

    Most of the people you will work with will be great. You will be with young, like-minded, similar colleagues. Some of my closest friendships began at Enterprise.

    Cons

    really long hours- as many as 60 hours/week, hourly pay, unruly clientele, bad managers, weekend work.

    they have a required maximum for each employee of 49 hours a week. Very often they work you longer than that and remove your hours from the clock-in so that management looks like they are complying with HR's rules.

    Advice to Management

    I feel like there were some managers that did a great job at developing employees and then there were a few that seemed to play favorites. My advice would be to pretend that it is your career that you are advising when counseling an employee.

    Pros

    The people are awesome! Best coworkers I ever had.

    Cons

    Everything! The long hours, the stupid customer is always right mentality, the pay, the guise of promotion but not getting promoted because you didn't kiss up...really everything.

    Advice to Management

    Just do better. Your company's core values and ethics are comprised daily by the poor way that business is run in rental branches.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It sounds good. They do a nice job of selling the idea to you with growth opportunities and a marginal salary.

    Cons

    All they look for are "sheeple" who can sell. They make it sound nice and as if there are opportunities to grow, but its based on how many people you can scam into unnecessary insurance programs.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some values and impart them in your management style. Stop asking the generic "tell me a time when..." interview questions.

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

    Pros

    Driving the newest cars was the best part...lunch breaks were a good

    Cons

    Management was horrible. Was repeatedly reprimanded and told I was horrible at my job even though I was consistently making TPC and was #1 on the regional sales matrix multiple times as well. Horrible working hours. Lied to during hiring process of working hours and work environment. Was also informed after hired, "we sold you a dream, now it is your turn to try and make it a reality". Very misinformed during initial hiring process and during training. It was only until I worked there for a while did I learn the true nature of this company. 12-14 hour days

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and do not call them degrading names. RESPECT!

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

    Pros

    Easy to get promoted, decent pay for top performers but in reality you have to work 60-70 hrs to achieve 100k plus income.

    Cons

    Severe stress, zero work life balance, out of touch upper management, fire best paid employees to lower employee cost/overhead. Have to drink 6 redbulls a day to keep up with the madness of finding, renting, cleaning cars all while providing insane customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to lie so much

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

    Pros

    None. absolutely nothing. There is nothing good about this company. Well except that the managers smoke and drink in the office.

    Cons

    Thug, fraternity type management. Management was clueless, more concerned about making themselves look good. This is for the people with no real skill.

    Advice to Management

    Shut down.
