    I worked at Enterprise full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved all the people I've met at Enterprise. I loved the fast paced environment. I loved learning and being rewarded for hard work. Believe me you'll work hard and if you want an easy gig do not apply please because your will not last long. Enterprise was fun and is great at the branch level for college graduates.

    Cons

    Long hours and low pay. I left because I couldn't afford to provide for my family and my new son. If I was single I would still be at enterprise.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic and staff stores properly. I felt there wasn't enough support if we were bodies down.

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

    Pros

    Resume Builder.
    You will meet a few life long friends.
    Job stability- the company is desperate. You have to really screw up to get fired.

    Cons

    Everything about the nature of the business. Customers treat you like garbage. Execs laugh while branches have literally zero cars with 40 plus reservations. People don't like renting cars and you they will ensure you're aware of it. You will work Christmas Eve, Day after Christmas, Black Friday, I could go on and on. There is NO work-life balance. It's non existent. You will arrive to work at 7, or earlier, and you'll get off at 6:30 IF you're lucky. The computer systems are literally the most outdated pieces of garbage you can imagine. The phone doesn't stop ringing and you will genuinely start to go mentally crazy.

    Having said all that, if you make it a year, you will look back on all of that as one of the most challenging, if not the most challenging, year(s) in your life. Only a select a few can make it, and when you end up at an amazing company because of your time at Enterprise, you'll look back at all those miserable. Stressful. Exhausting. Degrading memories
    and laugh..........

    Advice to Management

    It's 2016. You have to stand by your employees, value them, and most of all, LISTEN TO THEM. They are your biggest asset.
