    Pros

    I have been with Enterprise Holdings for 7+ years now. I can't say enough about how great of a company Enterprise is to be a part of. I am currently an Area Manager and just like everybody else in the company started my career as a Management Trainee. The MT program is an all inclusive program that gives you the tools needed every step of the way to learn the business. The company truly promotes on success. The company truly has an employees first mindset. Our mission statement states that if we take care of our employees and customers then profits will follow and we see that with every action throughout my career. Once you become a manager you have a fantastic ability to increase your own paycheck by being successful. I recently was able to achieve a promotion where the company paid on their own expense to move me and my family across the country.

    Cons

    The most common complaints we hear initially are the long work weeks. It is a change to be on a 49 hour work week from day 1 but with everything you do throughout the day a 49 hour week goes much quicker than a 40 hour work week at most other jobs. You truly get out what you put in!

    Advice to Management

    Your ability to build your pay plan and truly make an impact in customers and employees as you move up through the company is an amazing opportunity!

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

    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.

    I have been working at Enterprise full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Awesome benefits, ability to run your own business, ability to make a ton of money, good training, ethical, honest, strong wholesome values, profit sharing, 3% 401k match, profit sharing, ability to move up quickly. The harder you work, the faster you move up. I love working here and I have no plans of leaving anytime soon.

    Cons

    Because branches are open based on demand, usually 730-6 m-f and at most branches weekends, employees work long long days. Minimum of 49 hours a week-which is usually fine unless/until you have a new family.

    There is no paid paternity leave but time off is granted.

    As a new employee you are sold the Enterprise dream. If you are lucky enough to be placed at a branch with a good, well developed, and engaging leader, you will succeed and live that dream. If you are placed with a newer (not always true) or less than ideal leader, you'll quickly feel overworked and under appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Exit interviews are filled with complaints about hours. Stop trying to put this on managers and their lack of development and engagement. Great things happen when we listen to our customers and each other. Listen to your exiting employees and come up with a solution for less than 49 hr work weeks. I'm sick of hearing "50 hr work weeks are the new 40 hr work weeks." No they're not. You ask us to sell how easy 49 hours feel but you know it's hard and we both know Enterprise makes enough money to pay the same without all the overtime. I'm tired, you're tired, our employees are tired, fix it.

    hire more employees so we have time to get better trained and not get burnt out. We love working for you but there has to be some give and take.
