    Former Employee - Management Trainee Intern in Sault Ste. Marie, ON

    I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is great. Everyone I've known that's worked here is positive and energetic in the workplace. It's better for people who have been involved in sports throughout their lives, they hire a lot of former athletes and it's easier to get along with your coworkers if you match that qualification.

    Cons

    There are long hours, about 7am-6pm, 5 days a week, that can bother seem people but they don't seem as long as they sound, days go by quickly. The other downside is that if you want to move up you'll have to move around to different branches. This isn't really a problem in a big city where there are many branches but if you start in a smaller town you may have to move.

    Corrupted Management! I worked their for 8 years and what I got in return ....slap in my face!!
    Please start to value your trully hard working employees for once. And stop favourism within!

    I have been working at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time

    Pros

    Learn about inside sales, marketing. Great care in making sure rental vehicles are in top and presentable condition to clients. If you like the long hours and can stick it out there can be rapid advancement.

    Cons

    Long Hours. Little or no work life balance. There exists a high turn over rate as people quickly become unsatisfied. Selling ancillary products to customers that are not needed and having performance metrics based on this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider staggered shifts to balance out the work day. Long hours are great for those that want the overtime.
