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 worked at Avis Budget Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great team of experienced personnel. Half-decent pay, and the car benefits were very handy when fuel costs start to skyrocket. Lots of fun and useful vehicles to drive.

    Cons

    Lack of support for growth or maintenance of market share. Unrealistic goals and inconsistent accountability. Myopic focus on counter sales at the expense of almost everything else, including operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This business has low profit margins and most customers (and employees) are unhappy. Try harder to make the employees happy, and they will make the customers happy aka Southwest Airlines

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    pay in NYC is about 9.75 hr plus commission which can range from 300-2000 per mth if youre really, really good at selling.
    ample training which really helps in selling
    really great people to work with, very helpful and kind

    Cons

    higher management, not the location managers, can be shockingly unprofessional
    I was once told by an agent that in this company, if a co-worker complains to upper management about you even if the accusation or complaint is unfair or untrue, they will tell you nothing about it and then fire you one fine day out of the blue with no explanation as to why. Wow!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn some HR skills. You really need them. You are not better than the rental agents. Listen to employee concerns and dont take sides. Be neutral and fair.
