    I have been working at Avis Budget Group

    Pros

    Management positions open often
    Steady work
    Accessible by public transportation
    You can check your own payroll hours on your phone
    They have fashionable new uniforms

    Cons

    Policy discourages promotions of Union members & mandate them to accept a higher position at another branch with the possibility of returning to their original location

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, Please Please !!! Don't wait 9 extra months to sign our union contract like last time. Our families will be hurting as we wait for only a 50 cent raise

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Descent benefits including medical, 401k, employee rental rates and free vacation car allowances. Established and stable company.

    Cons

    Frequent changes in district management. Lack of consistency in implementing and enforcing policies. High turnover of some staff. Overall very low morale in staff. Loyalty and knowledge of long time staff are not valued. Innovation is not valued either. Avis has moved from a customer service organization to a pure sales profitability business. Employees are not valued or treated well despite their service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decisions about policies including vacation requests, shift bids, scheduling, are disorganized and changed without reason and on the fly sometimes. Giving the impression management does NOT know what its doing. Flippant changes and inconsistent enforcement of rules leads to extremely low morale as well as confusion of staff. For example in my 20 years there, policies on vacation requests have changed each year!

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time

    Pros

    There are really no pros, besides the shift that I work with is pretty awesome.

    Cons

    There are many cons. You get paid a set wage of less than $10 per hour. The commission is based off percentages. SO if you make the company $20K in revenue, you may only get $800 in commission. The management is horrible at my location. No real perks of being with the company.. except great benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs extensive training.

    Pros

    Avis Budget Group is business and family oriented company!

    Cons

    The starting wages would do a great deal for the employees if they were a couple of dollars more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You completely capture the quality of an employee and assess them based on a numbers system.

    Pros

    Great job for retirees who want no stress income. I look at the job as an exercise program that I get paid for.

    Cons

    Schedules so far are never the same. It is very hard to plan when you never know when you are going to be called.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Post job schedules online as soon as available. I have found management to be very responsive.

    Pros

    Avis has a very good working environment coworkers and managers are on the same page I enjoy my time at Avis I learned a lot of training takes a bit but after you learn training you'll be able to get on the counter and make money

    Cons

    manager can be a little obsessive over your numbers their commission is based off of yours so they will always hound you about your numbers
