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

    Pros

    Training here is really good. You will learn a lot! You really get a crash course on customer service and handling difficult people, not how to be a manager. Also if you have an understanding manager, the work is doable.

    Cons

    Everything else! The hours are draining. To the point I would have anxiety a lot of nights. On paper 12 + hours don't seem bad because you get OT, but honestly it's not worth it. No work/balance, no flexibility with scheduling, no life what so ever once you start the MT Role. Some branches are gross also. At one point in time, my branch had a mouse that left droppings everywhere. This job will brainwash you to think it's ok to work 50-55 hours a week. They will brainwash you to sell more and more and do shady deals on people who don't even know they are taking coverage. This job is an absolute joke and turns you into a robot with no morals.

    In my particular case, I have a 1 yr old son and nothing is more harder than being away from your child for literally most of the day. This company does not care about your personal life or anything you have to get done outside of work. Everything revolves around the branch. If you have children, are a single mother or dad, or have a family STAY AWAY! Believe me I regret the time I spent with this company simply because it's like you are a work slave. Working hard is not enough, being physically and mentally drained is the way upper management want you to be. Speaking of upper management, it really is a joke. This company does not teach you how to be manager at all. Managers here have no clue how to manage employee relations, ensuring employees are ok and comfortable with their roles, or even ensuring MT's are provided lunches! Some of the things I've experienced with this company has altered my life in so many ways that I'm embarrassed to share. Long story short, unless you are a recent college graduate with no demanding responsibilities do not take a job here!

    Advice to Management

    Create rotating shifts. 12+ hour work days is immoral and not necessary to work this job.

    Good Pay straight out of college, learn a lot about management and sales. If you can sell here you can sell anywhere

    Work life balance, work life balance, and work life balance. Sales should not be the only factor when it comes to getting promoted.

    40 hour work weeks

    Pros

    Pay is hourly with lots of overtime
    Branch outings monthly

    Performance matrix based solely on counter sales and upgrades

    Pros

    Good pay, good vacation benefits, huge potential to promote, guaranteed hours, promotes from within (everyone starts at the bottom of management), performance based promotion system.

    Cons

    I guess I have to clock out for lunch. Or maybe detailing a car in a suit every now and then (not that bad) I can not really think of anything else. Pretty great job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Pros

    Get to work with fun people that hate the job as much as you do. Room for advancement, only if you are willing to relocate to an undesirable location or double your commute time.

    Cons

    Working 55-60+ hours a week in front of angry customers that are allowed to book vehicles on a system that does not "sell out" gets old fast. You are constantly saying sorry and cutting prices just to obtain an unrealistic survey score that will make or break your career. ERAC is the only company that will make an employee wear a suit and tie for a $14hr position that includes washing cars.
