Fun, open environment with a worksite gym
Customers Service Agent (Former Employee) –  Fredericton, NB11 September 2017
They supplied on the job training. I worked in a fun, fast-paced environment answering incoming calls and placing car rental reservations in cities all over the US. Our calls were monitored for quality assurance and we were given feed back and helpful tips frequently by management. It was a shift-bid based schedule which was a bit difficult as your shifts would often change. The company provided great benefits for its employees and had an onsite gym and lunch room.
Pros
On site gym
Cons
Shift bid schedule

Coworker were some what fun to be around
Vehicle Detailer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB15 August 2017
place has bad management that only care about customer satisfaction.

pay is too low for the nature of what they expect done.

during slow times management are looking for any reason to fire you.

no diversity in the work place and too much favoritism to the people that come from the same country as the production manager, and the sales manager is a typical redneck who could care less and think he is the owner of the place
Pros
days off
Cons
working there

Was only great because of my co-workers
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC8 April 2017
I loved working there for the time that my hiring manager was still employed. He made the work place wonderful and knew the boundaries between friend and supervisor. The rest of the company once he was gone was very greedy and always wanting more sales I quit once he was fired and don't regret it one bit.

Typical car rental experience but more mature.
Shuttles/Washbay Vehicle Services (Former Employee) –  Edmonton2 March 2017
Layer back experience if shuttling vehicles but the washbay is hectic because of high volume of washes to be done. Facility is good though and people are friendly with good hours to work. Salary is poor because of basic skill needed to gain employment.
Pros
Nonbrainer, nice cars, no stress.
Cons
Washbay is hectic and pay is poor.

Airport Representative (Former Employee) –  Sault Ste. Marie24 October 2016
This job alllowed me to learn excellent customer service skills.

The hours were not good and I often didnt get home until after the last flight which was delayed most of the time. You were scheduled and paid for 3 to 11, but you often didnt get home until 1 or 2 am. There were no benefits other than discount off of car rentals.
Pros
an entry level job
Cons
Low wages, long hours

Manager (Current Employee) –  Jasper, AB11 October 2016
My location was very busy place in the summer and it made work hours insanely long. The job its self is very fulfilling when a day is done when you know how hard you worked to accomplish what needed to be done that day.

Management was okay, helped us out when needed. That being said, also left us in the dark about things because we were such a remote location.

Co-Workers were great all the years I worked for the company. Wouldn't mind working for Avis again underneath a Agency/Licencee and not for corporate.
Pros
Learn a lot from the job
Cons
Extremely long hours- 120+ every two weeks
