    Pros

    Good place to start, pays the bills. Very good pay if you are single and getting started.Health benefits are ok but very expensive and available. 401k is a cool benefit and does help. You can move quickly if you are willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Alot is expected out of you and you do get the feeling of being underpaid and underappreciated at times but push through, look at the job as a stepping stone within or outside the company. Paying for rentals even when the company as a whole is making alot of money and preaching beating business plan every month, not a major setback but very frustrating to conprehend a company that is customer based but does hurt its own employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do not preach beating monthly business plan and expect employees to pay for rentals even at discounted price, gives management a negative look.

    Pros

    Great benefits, company car, laptop and phone open door policy with management and they take all matters or concerns into consideration.

    This is a very fast environment which requires a lot of multi tasking and a lot of time if you have a young family it may not balance well.

    I worked at Penske Truck Leasing full-time

    Pros

    scheduled shift. New, well-maintained equipment. local runs.

    Cons

    Same as all 3pl providers. Pay OK, hours long, supes and mgmt kowtow to customer. Has 401k, but limits contributions to less than allowed by law.
    Def not the worst, but there are better cos. out there if you look a little harder.

    Advice to Management

    None. No point in talking to a wall.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits: company car, company phone, company laptop, lots of paid time off for employees with long tenure. Ability to learn and grow in all aspects of business and sales - can get promoted to middle and/or upper management in matter of 5-10 years if you are an "A" player, as they focus on promoting from within the company.

    Cons

    Company has changed in last five years. Those in lower management were left alone to make almost all business decisions and work independently at one time. Now, things are overly micro-managed from top to bottom. No longer a good work/life balance and cohesiveness between lower/upper management.
