Fun and enjoyable enviornment
Admin Assistant/CSR (Current Employee), North York, ONSeptember 12, 2013
Working at Discount is always a fun adventure, whether it's driving around to pick up cars and customers or doing work in the office, there is never a dull moment.

A typical day consists of ensure there are enough cars to cover reservations and walk in, to handling any customer issues. I am always making sure that the customer is completely satisfied – more... with their rental experience.

I also handle any unpaid invoices, which consists of researching why the invoice is unpaid and who should be paying it, i.e. insurance company, body shop or customer and collecting payment accordingly.

Another responsibility of mine is to ensure that the location runs as smoothly as possible, ensuring the location is properly staffed, delegating duties to individuals based on their strengths.

Overall, I take care of most administrative duties as well as managerial duties. Anything from refunds to creating the schedule. – less

Productive and Fun place to work
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Hamilton, ONJune 10, 2013
Working at Discount is a great way to learn about new things. A lot of strategic management is involved in your day to day work. You learn to manage your time and resources very well. The people you are working with are your team. They help you in every way possible. The hardest part of the job is to ensure that all your commitments are met at the end – more... of the day. If you have a promised someone a vehicle...get it to them. Meeting new people and coming across new situations is the most enjoyable part of the day. – less
