    I have been working at Enterprise part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Driving tons of new cars, improving sales skills

    Cons

    Subpar pay, 50-60 work weeks, difficult to get time off, no breaks even on a 10hr shift, working 2-3 hours late many days, often shuttling/cleaning cars while in mandatory dress clothes

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to your employees during their interview and tell them it's a 30-35hr a week "part time" job, when you end up working them 50-60.
    Follow basic labour laws, every 5 hours worked requires a 30 minute break.

    I have been working at Enterprise full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Full-time. Career Oportunities if you like working endless hours. Good pay (lots of overtime)

    Cons

    ENDLESS hour-we are talking close to 60 hours including lunch hour. They overwork their employees through the mud and don't care about their work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better way to schedule employees (11 hour days/5-6 days a week) is ridiculous.

    I worked at Enterprise full-time

    Pros

    You are treated like family and can always ask for help from any level of managment. Everyone wants you to succeed and be promoted through the company. You are trained constantly and are always challenged

    Cons

    The hours are very long. 7-6 and typically you may even be there after 6pm. You get burnt out quickly. In association of the hours you feel like you are under paid as you lose almost any social aspect of you day to day

    Advice to Management

    Keep on rolling. There is not much option you can change with the hours and I understand that but if you could relook at the overall pay to help aid the hours I think overall morale would go up. The training is fantastic. All in all I am very happy with the company and the only reason I left was for a better career option.

    I worked at Enterprise (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Get professional training at all levels of development which often do not receive from other companies
    Can be very lucrative if you get promoted in timely manner
    Fun work environment

    Cons

    Politics can play a big role in ability to get promoted
    Extremely long hours

    Advice to Management

    There are often branches that make it extremely difficult to promoted out of due to monthly matrix that grades employees, some great employees leave due to this disadvantage
