    I have been working at Sixt full-time

    Pros

    Great, collaborative environment that provides a unique opportunity for professionals to start or further develop their career. At Sixt, I have been exposed to projects far beyond that of my peers from similar backgrounds and have been trusted with responsibilities that are befitting of someone with way more experience. Sixt USA has the combination of a start up approach, mixed with the backing of a massive, successful organization in Germany. Couldn't recommend this company more!

    Cons

    Those who work hard and perform are rewarded quickly. There is tremendous growth opportunity here. This is not the place to coast by.

    I worked at Sixt full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the culture in headquarters along with the growth opportunities in the Miami Airport location. Compensation was good, Given a $600 monthly guarantee for your first six months of employment. I met many good people while working there.

    Cons

    Fraud and deception is the main sales "STRATEGY" used by “ALL” top performing sales reps. This creates a problem for people like me who did not succumb to such behavior. Telling customers that they NEED liability to be able to drive in Florida, telling customers that they NEED the toll package if they are going to be using the highways, selling one service at a specific price without telling the customer that they are actually paying for another two services they did not request within the price you quoted, after telling them they “HAD TO BUY IT”. It’s shameful! Management approves of this behavior, they are aware of it even thou they create the illusion that they aren’t, they also expect his behavior from you, their main concern is having the branches IRPD over 22.00, a very important metric used by corporate to calculate your monthly commission payout.

    Schedule: The schedule was also a big factor in me quitting. There is no consistency! You get the new schedules every two weeks with different variation of time. You might come in one day from “5am – 1pm” followed by “2:30pm – 10:30pm” followed by “6pm – 2am.” Horrific work life balance!

    Management: Most of the managers I came across lacked basic leadership skills. I was ridiculed by two of them due to the way I communicate with people. I get the feeling these people are managers due to their tenure with the company and not their ability to lead a team.

    Advice to Management

    Improvements start with a dynamic and knowledgeable leadership team. The people you have promoted as managers are not fit to lead, they are glorified sales reps who only care about the bottom line “More money”, and care very little about making a positive difference in their employees’ lives or the customers. Bring in quality people and stop promoting due to tenure with the company alone. Put an end to FRAUD immediately. There was another Rental Sales Agent who left the company due to the same reason I left. It's a bad feeling when management in the branch expects the SAME production from you while knowing what that production entails “FRAUD”.

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

    Pros

    Innovative for the most part. Nice cars, nice uniforms, you can make money if you hustle. Great as an entry-level position, you will learn how to run a business if you have the right manager.

    Cons

    Leadership has changed. As the saying goes "you don't what you have until its gone." I remember when they had our backs, now its all about the money. Leadership is afraid of Germany, it's not about the employees who drive the company. I'm young and saw myself retiring here, however, with the recent changes in management, its turned into Corporate America with a German twist.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training managers, upper management needs to get a backbone. Money isn't everything.

    Pros

    None, no loyalty, changed pay structure over night. They will act as if they care but will turn their back on you in no time. No true leadership from management. I must say that I met some great coworker there that I became friends with.

    Cons

    No weekends off, worked Christmas and New Years. Management not there when support is needed
