    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a great company overall. If you really know how to sell, you can make great commission. It is a fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Management is very rude. They do not know how to be professional in a work environment. The pressure is high to sell. You would have to racially discriminate against customers at times.

    Advice to Management

    Please learn to better manage your employees. Screaming and Shouting does not do the job. I think talk to your employee like normal human beings would get the job done.
