I have been working at Dollar Thrifty Automotive

Pros

The people here are wonderful, and supervisors are generally friendly, helpful, and very understanding. Co-workers are a delight; there is a real sense of camaraderie amongst the agents in my department. The stress level is high, as it is with any customer service job, but the environment is laidback enough to compensate a bit for it. Emergency situations usually find a sympathetic ear with management, and exceptions to the attendance policy can be made.

Cons

The pay isn't amazing, and sometimes the scheduling can be a pain. There seems to be no clear way to get a promotion other than simply knowing or being close to the correct people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None at this time.

    Very disappointing management style

    Pros

    They do promote a good balance between personal and work life. They are good about permitting time off when needed. There are a lot of great people in the field that work really hard and want the best for the clients.

    Cons

    The management style is very condescending. They don't have any respect for your overall knowledge and any new ideas are highly discouraged. There is a "we have never done it that way mentality". They do not empower their people to make any of their own decisions and micromanage the entire process. Any new ideas or best practices are dismissed immediately and after you are there for a couple months you get to the point that you don't even try anymore because of the negative response bringing any ideas to the table gets you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a lot of very talented people working for you. Ask them what their challenges are in a way that allows them to be honest and listen to them. Moral is very low on the sales team and the overall feeling is that no one cares.
