    Pros

    Avis has a very good working environment coworkers and managers are on the same page I enjoy my time at Avis I learned a lot of training takes a bit but after you learn training you'll be able to get on the counter and make money

    Cons

    manager can be a little obsessive over your numbers their commission is based off of yours so they will always hound you about your numbers

    Pros

    Opportunities, and for the most, good people.

    Cons

    Low pay, The attempt to FORCE employees to stay after working their scheduled shift, It's almost like threatening their vey job security when just trying to do their best. It's almost like good job means nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforcement of attendance rules as well as proper treatment of good commited employees. Keeping good people should be important verses treating them like they are just like the rest of the bunch and making sure there are no personal agendas towards any employee just because one might not like them for whatever the issue is.

    Flexible schedule. Not much expected of you. You have the option to work at your own pace. Fun driving all the new cars.

    Pros

    Sadly none, once all of the stress and physical ailments are factored into the equation, because there is nothing positive to speak about Avis.

    Cons

    Everything: tactless people, absurd odds faced daily, no communication, severe lack of camaraderie, horrific management, misplaced employees, no opportunity for growth, bad base, never changing, pay, adverse weather conditions, injuries, and thousands of other issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire individuals with MBA's, MSOL's and post-graduate degrees that will effectively shift your economic and personnel outcomes. Stop hiring the people who procrastinate to such an extent that their non-preparation becomes the bane of every employees life. Also hire operation managers that have College degrees and are sociable. Socially awkward, parasites, who harp on money more than common sense.

    Pros

    Health insurance and having a job that was it

    Cons

    This company promotes stealing from customer. A person stole from the company there and gave free cars to his buddies by simply non charging the contracts, once it was reported and there was enough proof out there, he was simply taken his lead title away. However, other people who were great worker and did their all were fired after they defended themselves being physically assaulted by customers. The cars are never available and the sales team rents them out anyways and the customer service has to deal with it. Don't waste your time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the crooks and train your management. Not 23 year old boys being buddies with their employees on facebook. not to mention dating their staff. Just disgusting
