    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The co-workers I needed to depend on were very dependable, and owned their job. The pay was very good, and the benefits the best I've seen in my career. The opportunity to learn never stopped, and there was always plenty to do. I felt as though I was my own boss, managing my territory. I worked in the corporate sales environment, so I can only speak a limited amount to the operations side, but everyone I worked with in every position enjoyed their job very much. I would definitely recommend this company to a friend. The company car was a great perk as well.

    Cons

    Being a publicly held company, I believe senior leadership struggles with keeping shareholders happy. This can be disconcerting to the direction the company takes for the employees. Avis Budget Group is a very big company, and constant change is inevitable. Unfortunately I had to part from the company because my position was moved to the West coast and I could not follow. If you are talented enough to join the team in corporate sales, perform well, and are relocatable, then upward mobility is very attainable. If I had the opportunity to go back, I would, but working for Avis Budget Group is not for those that are not adaptable to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At the time that I write this, senior leadership has almost completely changed, with a new President for North America, and fairly new SVPs. Please keep the best interest of your team in mind, and when you hear constructive feedback on one of your team, please make sure you know the full story before making judgments and especially determinations. I respect Joe, Beth, Chad, Ned, Jeannine, and Bob very much. You have a lot of lives depending on you, and great responsibilities to lead them. Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow, very receptive upper management, positive outlook, fantastic benefits, company car, the ability to make a change

    Cons

    Dealing with old management that needs to be replaced because they are lazy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't settle on hiring someone as a manager if they don't have the personality for it. They need to be a manager and a leader. Don't settle.

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good company, good advancement opportunities. Decent hourly pay plus commission. Understanding management, sick leave ect. Time off unpaid if the schedule allows.

    Cons

    High stress face to face sales with the general public. New hires usually get worse work schedules. Rigid sales tactics that must be used which can come across as canned or robotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to spend more time at the counter covering high volume times.
