    I worked at Westside Rentals full-time

    Pros

    Great job for student, artist, or part timer. Lots of different positions available and always new people to meet. If you can sell, you will get paid. Excellent for getting your foot in the door for a multi-million dollar company to leverage for better jobs later.

    Cons

    Run more like a frat house than a business. Still, the money comes in. Don't expect to make this a career. If you do, reassess life goals.

    Advice to Management

    Better sales training. Or just any.

    Pros

    Mark Verge is awesome and so are your two bosses. Flexible hours. Make your own schedule. Call in for the day off whenever you want (as long as you give reasonable notice and it's not excessive of course..the boss is really understanding and has a laid back management style) Lots of pros if you're a top performer. Low hourly pay, but decent commissions if you work hard. You can make about 20K a year working part time, flexible hours. Hard to find that.

    Cons

    No room for growth. CEO and COO positions are both filled and those guys aren't leaving any time soon. The owner of the whole company is really chill and pays them too well. There are no other executive positions to work your way up to. It's basically the perfect job while you're in college.

    I worked at Westside Rentals (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, pleasant co-workers, leasing department

    Cons

    Low pay, no real opportunity for advancement, poor management especially outside of main office

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees and customers and do not make everything just about the bottom line.

    Pros

    great college job, flexible scheduling, bonus incentives

    Cons

    it's a dead end job beyond any bonuses

    Advice to Management

    it's nice to be taken out to 5 star lunches by the COO, but we hardly ever talk about anything productive. the CEO (Mark Verge - great guy!) should hold his top two managers more accountable for growing the business. It's a website and web-based businesses all have a chance to thrive nowadays. It's unfortunate to see westsiderentals not growing beyond LA.
