    Pros

    great job out of college,a lot of people stay and grow with the company and do great! others use Enterprise as an awesome stepping stone (great place to get your feet wet) and move on to enhance there skill set into insurance,accounting,finance,sales etc Enterprise literally teaches you so much

    Cons

    none really ,they tell you at the interview what your signing up for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing your thing -please change the dress code to polo shirts and khakis no one wants to be picked up by someone in a wet sweaty stained suit from washing cars.

    Pros

    Give you an opportunity out of college
    Really teaches you how to sell
    be with co-workers so much you become family

    Cons

    Most weeks hit 60+ hours
    Trainees make ALL the money for the company and get over worked and under paid
    A lot of politics
    Everything comes down to the bottom dollar, even if it compromises your health or companies integrity

    Advice to Management

    Turn over rate is going to remain high if y'all do not figure out work life balance

    Pros

    fun fast placed to work with good sense of team and efforts to develop you professionally. if you get on upper managements good side promotions are handed out. largely the interview process is a formality.

    Cons

    Experiences GREATLY differ due to management. Poor management lead to me being fired when I should have received a memo and new training. Did not feel the company was on my side or even had faith in me. As on of the top performers I was hung out to dry and excoriated for an honest mistake. Company did not follow policy and terminated me before the write up stage. if you are on upper managements good side the road is paved gold for you uless something changes.

    Advice to Management

    take the time to actually listen to your employees and due your due diligence before terminating people. I was let go unfairly.

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

    Pros

    Meeting all types of people, networking with customers, company outings (if your preform well)
    Rewards, and the experience you gain from working at a place where every day yields different challenges.

    Cons

    - Your integrity will constantly be challenged.
    - People who actually went to school for this type of work vs people who manipulate numbers to move up.
    - working about 55 hours a week
    - corporate expectations vs branch managers ways.
    - hard to move up if your branch managers dont couch for you. (Easiest way to upset them is to actually do the right thing and NEVER lie to customers)

    Advice to Management

    - Pay more attention to the employees that actually value helping people.
    - Crack down on managers teaching and coaching their teams to "finesse, mislead, and manipulate customers into buying a completely optional product"
    - Coach branch managers on what it actually means to "protect your brand"

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

    Pros

    You will become very acclimated to working in an environment that is so high stress you can hardly see straight - I worked in an extremely affluent area and had multiple customers tell me they thought I had the hardest job of anyone they knew. Honestly this company has a lot of good training to offer. It's just too bad you aren't able to appreciate it until you have run for the hills. Other than that not much to add here.

    Cons

    This company quite literally preys upon its employees. It will destroy your life entirely if not careful. Upper management is downright deceitful. IMHO if you can look someone square in the face and lie between your teeth, with no problems so long as it puts a dollar in your pocket then you may have found your calling.

    Now all this is given you can put up with no less than 1,000,000 customers per week telling you what a low life you are for not having a 2017 3 Series BMW ready to rock-n-roll, full of gas, and with no mileage. . . . I mean after all they have a 2001 Altima in the shop. And your the Enterprise guy, you should know if anyone does that it's only right, I mean after all they were hit at break neck speeds in the strip club parking lot last night!!!!! And you my friend will get the distinguished honor of looking them dead in their pathetic opiate glazed eyes while seeming genuinely concerned for their "headache"(Pathetic excuse for a lawsuit). And just watch out if you suggest they pay the .65 cents worth of taxes on their $30 dollar a day USAA policy that they did 2 years in ROTC in college to earn. You know what just talk to their lawyer they shouldn't have to deal with this that stripper hit them.

    You: "Ok sir may I have that attorney's contact information?"
    Customer: "Yes son, its 1-800-411PAIN."

    Honestly, my biggest gripe is in the deception of your compensation. If you really break the math down they pay you barely more than you could make flipping burgers per hour. It's just a sad pathetic escapade. Do yourself a great favor. If your smart enough to be reading this. . . . . DONT WALK, RUN!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    QUIT. Just quit. Get a real - BIG BOY - job. I mean seriously, you run around town drinking beers 5-6 nights a week with a bunch of KIDS just out of undergrad flexing your pathetic little 80k/year area manager pay stub. You can continue hiding your alcoholism behind the veil of sales goals and customer satisfaction dinners but we both know you wouldn't last 2 seconds in corporate America. Get a life. This place breeds losers. Don't be fooled.

    Pros

    It has a great management training program with the opportunity to move up if you are able to move around.

    Cons

    Not the best place to start working if you are married with children. The best way to advance is to be able to move from store to store.

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront about promotions.
