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

    Pros

    If you exceed their expectation in sales and service you will get far. Management is within reach. Easy to network as they always have events and happy hour throughout the year. The pay is good.

    Cons

    long hours. White young male preferred as it is car related industry. If you network well and is friend with the right people you will get where you want to be without having to go through the steps as everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Underwriting should be monitored and audited as well when it comes to employee working hours.

    Pros

    Salary, opportunity to move up, great benefits, family oriented company, excellent training and preparation for new hires. I enjoyed the interview process and liked everyone I met.

    Cons

    Long work week. Customer service in general can just be rough but it's worth it for what you get paid. 40k starting out is beyond competitive.

    Pros

    Fun work environment, helpful coworkers, learn a lot. Because it is a management trainee program, they do their best to bring you into the innerworkings of the business so that you learn a great deal about how running a business works.

    Cons

    Long hours, not that great benefits.

    I have been working at Enterprise full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Enterprise takes great care of their customers and employees. We provide excellent benefits and the pay is also good.

    Cons

    Work hours are long with a minimum of 49 hours per week worked. This is a sales based position and promotion only comes if you do well selling their protection products.

    Advice to Management

    Start off strong and keep the momentum going. If you are decent you should promote within one year to an assistant management position. From then the sky is the limit if you stick with the company.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers are great. My coworkers are what helped me make it through the day. Opportunity to grow & to gain management skills. It's also great that ERAC has other business. So if you perform well, you're able to move to another segment of the company, which is great. The Christmas party is fantastic! For the most part, senior leaders are pretty approachable & open to meeting with employees at any level. It's very easy to communicate with those you aspire to be like or aspire to one day have their position. It's all about how you network. As an MT, the VP of my region knows me by name & always encourages me to reach out to her. She's literally just an email away. The company makes it very easy to network, and most people are always willing to lend advice if you ever feel like you're in a slump. Perform well, and you will go far and gain a lot.

    Cons

    The work hours! This is probably the biggest con. It's not rare to work a 7-7 shift. Branch managers try to give employees some work life balance, but anytime you're working 46 hours + on a regular basis, it's pretty impossible to have that balance. I'll say that maaaaaaany employees are married to or dating other enterprise employees. Just shows how much we are here. It can also be extremely annoying to never have cars but customers are still making reservations. Some people thrive on that; I don't. Lack of communication or consistency. Sometimes when you're following protocol, a manager can overrule you, making you look like an idiot in front of the customer. Pay is decent, but for as long as we work & all the BS we have to put up with, we should be making way more! Plus for higher ups, money can be hit or miss depending on how the branch performs.

    Advice to Management

    Back your employees. Find a better way to manage those hours. Great company; but who wants to work there if I barely get to see my family members and loved ones.

    Pros

    You will work with some of the most amazing people. You will learn a ton in a very short amount of time.

    Cons

    You will work! The hours will be long, the attitude is 'never say die' and the rewards will be weak. It is extremely difficult to get promoted unless you are part of a certain minority group that will become obvious very quickly. They do not pay enough at lower levels for what they ask of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the compensation plan: expecting employees to wash cars, standing out in the rain while in suits on that budget is lunacy.
