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

    Pros

    Most departmets are good to work in and have alot of caring associates.

    Cons

    Certain Managers are "Clueless". No people skills and just not nice to others,major attitudes toward associates they are threatened by. Penske is a customer driven company, all associates are courteous and caring and interact great with each other.Its a shame some in leadership are aloud to treat others like dirt and get away with it daily. It happen to me I was fired!!!! Keep your mouth shut and have no oppinion and you be fine??

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the inter workings of the organization. Their is "ALOT" of stress that is caused by certain indivaduals in management and aloud to countinue??? It starts with HR!!!!!!!

    Pros

    The work is interesting and the team is talented. Upper management takes an interest in employee well-being and development. Salaries are competitive and flexibility is permitted when needed. It is just the right balance of corporate and caring.

    Cons

    Corporate headquarters is located in a slightly remote area. Sometimes communication across the entire corporation is difficult in such a large company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. You have a lot of talent and many happy, loyal team members. Continue to make the good people feel valued.

    I worked at Penske Truck Leasing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    professional work environment, healthy commission potential, solid company financially, possibilities to advance

    Cons

    too much micromanagement, people promoted to supervisors need more training in managing people. Too much emphasis on micro numbers and not enough quality of rental transactions. Hours and days of work change too frequently.

    Advice to Management

    give back some of the commission incentives you rescinded in 2009, supervisors spend too much time monitoring phone calls and not learning how to motivate people.

    I worked at Penske Truck Leasing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very nice office environment, provide lap tops to people to work remotely

    Cons

    Very micromanged in this position. Each morning a print out compares each employees work performance from the day before and is shared with others in the group. I describe the way work comes in like a conveyor belt. Work drops in to a queue and many times there is a backlog. After three days in the queue the job turns red and then there is panic by management. Very poor orientation and training on how to accomplish tasks for new hires. Expected to work extra on own time to lean specifics of position.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect. Don't use metrics to openly compare work performance amongst group members.

    Hire more billing coordinators in order to meet the deadlines you set. Comminucation is a huge issue.
