    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    A lot going on, really test your ability to think quickly
    Ample opportunities for work
    Extremely stressful environment so it tests you, and you can watch other people wilt under the pressure so that’s always interesting

    Cons

    Ridiculous hours, 7 days a week, no OT pay
    No realistic chance for growth
    Laughed at when asked for a raise, despite essentially being promoted
    Abusive senior supervisor, who was never disciplined for how awful she is
    After I quit, I emailed Human resource about my last paycheck, still haven’t heard back, it’s been about a month now, have sent 5 emails
    I’ve slept overnight in the warehouse to work early on Saturday at the orders of management and spent over 24 hours in there on multiple occasions. Never even received a thank you.

    Advice to Management

    GMs and area VP are brilliant, once you start getting below them there’s a drastic drop in leadership and professionalism.

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

    Pros

    Great for the first year as the accounts you work on are quite well known. You learn how to be detailed oriented. Pay is okay.

    Cons

    Lack of growth opportunities after one year. Most Penske employees are contractors and work on their customer's site so your options to move up are quite limited.

    Advice to Management

    Give more opportunities for growth. People leave after a year.

    I have been working at Penske full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you keep your nose clean you have very stable employment. 401k matching available. Work from home available for most positions.

    Cons

    Benefits are not the cheapest but have good coverage. Bonus payments is meager and pay raises are below 4% on average.
