Pros: 3 days off/week
Cons: You barely see any of your commission, long hours, poor management
I HATED working here. Four 10 hour days and three days off seemed awesome. Over $20/hr? Yes please.
Ten hours of people complaining that your coworkers duped them into buying insurance was definitely not awesome.
My manager never helped with customers. Ever. He'd call me from the back office and then whisper and ask what was going on. He never once came out to help. They care about nothing other than making as much money as possible at the employee's expense. If you don't get an upgrade on every rental or sell insurance, you're a failure, and they will let you know it.
The ads posted from the Victoria locations offer over $20/hr. Even in my best months, I never came close to that, and it was never from a lack of trying. Your pay is based on a scaling commission. In order to get even $15/hr, you would have to have a "yield" (upgrades, extras, insurance, etc) divided by your rental days of at least 12 to see a penny of your efforts. Otherwise you are paid barely above minimum wage and see none of the money you made.
The turnover rate is extremely high here because of the poor management who are more money-hungry than caring about their employees. If you want a day off, don't count on it. If you want to take your vacation, you have to tell them two months in advance and constantly remind them of when you're taking it, or they won't schedule your time off.
I was never actually trained for this position. I was just kind of thrown into it, and within a month was working more than half of each shift completely alone at night.
Better off applying somewhere else and – more... saving yourself the hassle. – less
