    I worked at Enterprise as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Honestly none that I can think of. They've got a laid back training program although it's still a stretch to call it a "positive"/"pro"

    Cons

    -I was an intern there this summer before I quit three weeks in and found myself another internship...but to be honest, I would rather have no job and no internship than to work at this place.
    -HOT outside and you're wearing a suit and tie to essentially be a glorified Uber driver (minus the tips)
    -You're cleaning cars in a suit
    -filled with women and men who spent all their college time majoring in useless majors, at poor name universities, and partied too much while getting horrible grades and so they work here thinking they're actually doing something worthwhile, while in reality they're not
    -12 hour days for no money...i don't care who you are...if you have a college degree you deserve better
    - if you're looking at this as an internship to boost your resume for post-college jobs upon graduation...forget about it. Literally nothing you do in relation to this job will impress future employers because this job experience is completely irrelevant for most jobs...unless of course you wanna be a cab driver, or a car washer.
    -Not business related at all
    -Filled with Frat Bro mentality
    -Uncomfortable, hot, sweaty, painful, long days due to how often you are sitting in hot cars to pick up and drop off customers, cleaning cars in hot and humid heat while wearing a suit, and of course, acting as if what you're doing is an actually important job/internship when in reality, like I said earlier, you're simply a glorified uber driver in a suit without the tips.
    -STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!
    -Too many ghetto-type attitude people

    Advice to Management

    Hire high school dropouts, you don't need a college degree to drive a car and clean a car. Stop with the lies of "running your own business" , "getting an MBA", and "business 101 on ten cups of coffee". Because none of it is true. Stop with your ridiculous dress code...you're renting cars...not dealing with big money CEO level tasks. Stop with the 12 hour days...people want lives outside of enterprise. Get better technology. Hire competent people to run the place...not frat bros

    Pros

    Overall the best job I could have out of college. Everyone at Enterprise has been great. They all want you to succeed and will do everything they can to give you want you need to learn, grow, and perform.

    Cons

    It is a VERY sales heavy job. If you don't like sales or know you're not good at it, this may not be the job for you.

    I have been working at Enterprise full-time

    Pros

    Enterprise is one of the few organizations that promotes from within. Also as the world's leading transportation provider, there is a huge growth curve with the advent of electronic and driverless car technology trending towards the future.

    Cons

    One of the only drawbacks are the long work hours.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to company management. Thank you for being so readily accessible as I continue to learn and grow in the business.

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

    Pros

    I love the company so far. The interview process was very straightforward and I knew exactly what to expect at each stage of the process. There was no hidden agendas or any sort of runaround about where I stood. The Branch observation was great and it was nice to actually see a "day in the life" before joining the job. I also loved the fact that the branch employees were so welcoming and inclusive

    Cons

    I can't think of any downsides so far

    Advice to Management

    None at all

    Pros

    Uncapped earning potential. Many career paths and opportunities to fit everyone's life and interests. You work hard and get rewarded if you are patient

    Cons

    Work long hours and deal with some tough customers but nothing that can't be fixed or dealt with. Some management is under qualified but that is more of a reason to put perform them.

    Former Employee - Pharmacy Technician CPhT in Washington, DC

    I worked at Enterprise full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    For people aspiring to develop a pharmacy-based career, a pharmacy technician job often serves as a staring point. This gives you a chance to gain hands-on experience while you begin a college degree program.

    Cons

    Pharmacy technician work can be emotionally stressful as well. Accuracy is vital to the job because incorrectly filled prescriptions ,wrong dosage or mislabeled bottles can pose health risks to patients.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are those who lead by example, treat their staff equally and create a conducive environment , solve problem and mentor their employees.....
