    Pros

    Great team. Fast paced environment. Something new everyday. Okay pay. Sometimes there are opportunities to get out of he office.

    Training was a joke. It was a bit hard to figure out everything. I somewhat felt that I was thrusted into work. Having to find my own way.

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

    Pros

    Looks good on resume, develops management skills, co workers are decent

    Cons

    Long hours, low pay, expensive dress code while running around sweating. Washing cars, having a degree to get paid less than $3 more than a service agent. This sounds like such an amazing job when you are coming straight out of college. You do have benefits, but there is NO work life balance. My first 6 months I went to work, ate dinner and slept. I don't know how people with children do this. Management does not listen to employees and you are constantly selling to customers even if they really can't afford the product. High stress environment, lots of running around. Back end work hardly gets done because there are so many other tasks needing attention.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Happy hour only goes so far. Cut the hours, split them between employees. There is no work life balance. The pay needs to increase and customers should not be able to treat staff the way they do.

    Pros

    Lots of room for advancement which is mostly based on objective measures of your sales performance

    Cons

    Long days (7am to 630pm at least 5 days a week)
    Benefits aren't great
    Don't value retention of the lower level employees (management assumes that after 12-18 months if you haven't been promoted, you leave)

    Pros

    advancement in your career
    Opportunity to meet walks of all life and network

    Cons

    10+ a day on your feet constantly
    short staffed, causing you to work even harder due to lack of bodies
    customers are rude
    management not understanding, only worried about profit

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more, and listen to them
    The work schedule is absolutely unrealistic 60+ hrs?!

    Pros

    You will meet good people who are for the most part the same age as you. However given the majority of employees are under 30, this might be a curse in disguise.

    Cons

    Honestly, none. Long hours, low pay, unrealistic expectations from management. I can't remember the number of times I was screamed at for something out of my control. You will work 10+ hour days and your bosses will act like you should be grateful to them for the opportunity. Incredibly high turnover, I was under at least five different branch managers and four different area managers. If you are truly desperate for a job it might be worth it but you're better off finding something else.

    Advice to Management

    No point giving advice because management doesn't listen.

    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.
