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

    Pros

    Overpaid given no degree.
    Benefits are average.
    5 years service gets 20 paid vacation days plus 6 sick days.
    Sick days paid out if not used at end of year.
    Overtime.

    Cons

    Management doesn’t hold everyone accountable.
    Promises and commitments made to employees are rarely delivered on.
    Very poor training, if any.
    Can’t take days off if another employee is off, with 20+ days vacation for most, this is an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training.
    Hold all employees to same standard.
    There’s no reason employees can’t be allowed to work from home.

    I worked at Penske full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get a regular paycheck, coworkers are largely talented and great people.

    Cons

    HR department literally ignored a report of Harassment and Retaliation by management. Management won't hesitate to throw you under the bus if it furthers their goals unless you're one of their favorites. Typical good old boys club. EXTREMELY high turnover at management level makes it impossible to advance your career. No work/life balance. Drastically underpaid compared to industry averages. Management expects hourly employees to work through lunches or breaks and ignore federal legislation.

    Advice to Management

    A drastic and immediate change in culture is needed to hold onto talented employees. Take the time to learn what is important to them and act upon on it instead of treating associates like replaceable pieces of meat.
