    Pros

    When I first entered the sales - driven workforce it was for rival company, Hertz. After several months of shifting management and lack of fleet, but still exceeding my goals, I wanted to move to ABG where I felt even as a representative of another company, the opportunity was endless. Thank you for everything and a great experience through and through!

    Cons

    None that I can think of immediately

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move vehicles of different classes to smaller Airports for more revenue opportunity

    Pros

    Senior management is top notch and really know how to turn a company around. .Ability to really own your piece of the business. Lots of autonomy and empowerment.

    Cons

    Pay is not as competitive as NYC which makes it hard to want to stay in Northern NJ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to add work-life balance, flexible work schedules.

    Pros

    Just applied on a whim and never thought I would get picked or offered a position. I am very happy with my job and the confidence shown toward helping me become all I can be or more. Very exciting to be the face of a JD Powers top company!!!

    Cons

    One co worker not a lot of help.

    Pros

    Great commission. Managers coached throughout the process. Union based company. Would consider going back if I got the offer.

    Cons

    Nothing really negative to go off of. I liked working for AVIS. If you're into sales, go for it. My highest commission month was 5k, and that's not including my hourly base.

    Pros

    The benefits were okay in terms of paid vacation and sick days. You also got a couple paid personal days.

    Cons

    High turnover, management was never on the same page, poorly managed fleet, and lot's of favoritism. Expectations for sales were very high, and grey areas were encouraged, until grey areas weren't. You never really knew when that would happen. And then when you adhere to that and sales went down, grey areas encouraged again. No consistency. Don't work in an area dictated by government, as you're commission will take hard hits, especially during the times of no grey areas. Even though government contracts kill your numbers, they are still factored in your commission. Well played, Avis, well played. They get the same results and now they have to pay out less. Brilliant. You will go nowhere, although the pay for operations management sucks in exchange of what they ask of you. The hours are ridiculous, so don't have kids or a family and work there. The most poorly and mismanaged company in terms of operations that I have ever seen. They will do anything to cut corners to meet a bottom line that enhances only the very top of the company. And your commission will get emptied out quickly by taxes, depending on what state you live in.
