    Pros

    Great work culture and teaches you to problem solve and run a business in an effective manner. Many outings and events that recognize accomplishments.

    Cons

    The only real complaint is the long hours that have to be worked due to the operating business hours. Otherwise I would not have any complaints.

    I worked at Enterprise as an intern

    Pros

    Most college grads go into sales and you shouldn't think that is a bad thing. You really get great experience and training. You will have a step up on everyone if you take another entry level sales job. I never had any problems with any of the management. Very supportive environment. People want to see you succeed.

    Cons

    Long hours... but its a job you should except to work hard no matter what you do.
    Sometimes you have to clean cars in a shirt and tie.

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

    Pros

    Don't really work as much. Very competitive as you are competing against those in your branch and area to be at the top of your matrix. If you do well great, if you don't do well, great.

    Cons

    You don't get paid commission. Your hard work to sale insurance to customers is solely for your assistant manager, manager, area manager etc paychecks, NOT yours. Have to take a couple tests to even get promoted. You have no social life, you strictly work all day from sunrise to sunset. Dealing with some of the customers get very exhausting and it takes a while to get promoted unless you are plugged in with knowing someone.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more and give them some commission to look forward to.

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

    Pros

    Great place to get working experience and even make a career out of it ! Upper management wants to see you succeed and genuinely cares about your future .

    Cons

    Long hours , and sometimes feels like you don't get paid enough for the amount and type of work you deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Management was amazing, but it is more of a corporate issue with the hours and work life balance.

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

    Pros

    fun environment (depending on your branch), training program, sales development, being on your feet and not being stuck behind a desk, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    hours, and sometimes coworkers don't pull their own weight

    Advice to Management

    Just make sure responsibilities are fair for all employees. Be engaged; come up with ways to keep employees motivated to prevent burnout.

    I worked at Enterprise full-time

    Pros

    Most people there are pretty nice
    Benefits are good
    Half the company is romantically involved with someone else in the company so if you're looking for love, you just may find it here
    Some branch managers are really awesome, but they usually get promoted to area mangers and you get stuck with a sucky replacement.

    Cons

    The hours are pretty insane. 50 hours per week MINIMUM every week. HR will tell you you're not supposed to exceed that, but it happens anyway.
    Its like they prey on fresh college grads eager to get a job that requires a degree.....just to have you washing cars and providing taxi service to and from the branch.
    The airport rotations are terrible. Super unethical "sales" practices there and if you don't join, you'll end up at the bottom of the sales matrix.
    There's actually very little management training honestly, sales is the main focus on all levels. This is their biggest downfall. Great salespeople do not necessarily make great managers.
    The pay is not that good considering how many hours you work. If you break it down hourly, you'd make about the same or more in a non-degreed position.
    For people who have been with the company a couple of years, there's quite a bit of politics in actually getting promoted. They put you where they want you. Not always based off of good performance.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage people and not just numbers.

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

    Pros

    Driving newer cars is great if you're considering buying a new vehicle or want a change from the vehicle you drive.

    They provide ample training for you.

    They do promote from within, so there is a fair chance for you to go up the ladder if you wish.

    Cons

    Pay per hour is decent at best, initial starting pay should be higher.

    Depending on the manager you could be in for a long ride.

    Screening for service agents is lackluster at times.

    High pressure environment regarding sales.

    Upper management can be a pain to deal with at times.

    Long hours stemming from attempting to ensure every customer leaves happy (it's a pro for a customer, but as an employee doing this *every* day can be draining)

    Depending on the area you work in, Service Agents can be difficult to deal with.

    Work life balance is out of control. You will find that most of the time you have no energy to do other activities.

    Advice to Management

    Screen your service agents better, consider increasing pay, alternate shifts so not everyone is stuck working 12+ hr days.

    Pros

    Great company to work for with awesome benefits. Promotions always come from within the company and seniority does not matter. You can promote quickly depending on how much effort you put in. Rewarding career if you put in the effort!

    Cons

    You work around 53 hours a week so be prepared to work a lot, however the days do go by fast. You are always dealing with the public so you must be good with people and handle all kinds of different situations.

    Advice to Management

    Great company and I enjoy my job very rewarding!
