I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time for less than a year

Pros

beginner's pay with guaranteed commission...thats it

Cons

this is one of the worst jobs i can imagine. the pay is pretty good when you start because you get a guaranteed commission but after that you will hardly earn anything unless you love screwing ppl over. they teach you to do and say everything your parents told you not to do. unless you bs ppl and just con them into things you wont make any money and you will be eliminated. i thought the turnover at enterprise is extreme but its no comparison. the ppl that steal and lie and scam will stay there forever and be at the top of the list, the ppl that are honest, hardworking etc wont make any money and will be canned. The so called benefits that you receive after 90 days take actually more like 120 because they will hopefully get rid of you before you get anything. Ive been there for almost 110 days and ive seen almost 20 ppl come and go and this is a small airport. I am waiting for my benefits and as soon as i have them and get everything done im quitting this company. they also wont advance you from within unless you want to move somewhere completely else which is a joke on a manager's salary. you are supposed to work the shittiest shifts, holidays, etc. and the ppl that have been there for a long time dodge every client so they can get more commissions because the more you do the less you earn because the company needs money and therefore they rob you

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefit package/costs. Apparent stability in the company's financial status.

    Cons

    Lack of true path for advancement for entire company across divisional lines. Divisional leadership (director level) too autocratic, not cohesive. Lack of fair and un-biased job posting and hiring practices across divisional lines.

    Lack of timely communication of goals from senior management to sales staff for bonus pay levels. (Who announces yearly goals after the year has begun?)

    Continual moving target for sales staff who are trying to achieve bonus pay levels. (Again, changes are communicated after year begins, sales staff have to "catch up" - or miss goals! )

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    #1) Establish long-term expectations for sales staff. Year to year goals are very short sighted.

    #2) Recommend senior management/human resources establish a standard path for advancing that is accessible to all levels of personnel in the company. Many times job postings are not visible - unless you know someone. Many times job postings are already filled - even though the "posting and interviewing process" proceeds or occurs weeks after a posting expires. Many positions are pre-determined (even though the interviewing process proceeds). Promotions occur many times with candidates who move across the country for a new position - when a very qualified candidate resides in the location that has the opening! Where is the corporate oversight for moving expenses/reasonableness? Why would a very qualified candidate already residing in a city with an opening be passed over? Why would management want to pay moving expenses when not necessary?

    Another FISCAL Question:
    How long is the Rolling Pride going to last and what is it costing? Is that really a prudent use of resources and a wise expense? Is it really building morale when the "team" really is not on the bus?

    There are too many instances of who you know - not what you know or how well you perform in your position - that result in promotions and other perks....
