FRONT COUNTER SALES/ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Woolworths – 18 February 2017
This was a fun place to work. To this day I still keep in touch with some of the people I worked closely with. Woolworths was the Walmart of 20 plus years ago and I would work there again if the company was still in existence
Management Trainee (Former Employee) – Toronto – 3 January 2017
Managers in different branches across Toronto are generally nice and fair. However, the management structure is disappointingly bad. The booking system is constantly overbooked, meaning that we have to deal with dissatisfied customers regularly. No fixed working hour. Nonetheless, I do appreciate the opportunity to work with Dollar Thrifty as I have gained valuable knowledge and experience.
FRONT COUNTER SALES/ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 21 November 2016
Enjoyed the customers. My manager was fair, and very kind to everyone. Small business but the few people I did work with were all awesome. The best part of the job were our regular customers and also getting to drive the newest cars
Rental Agent (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 1 April 2016
Working with Thrifty team I gain lot of experience and valuable knowledge. I improved my customer service skills, computer skills, planing and organization skills. I had chance to drive different types of vehicle.It was fun to work with such a great team.
Having Hertz as the parents company, the upper management seem to treat Dollar Thrifty employees like a unwanted step child. Other than that, great co workers that you can depends on... everyone is fantastic.
Thrifty car renntal (Former Employee) – Ontario Canada – 18 February 2014
Good place to work culture wise, management cares more about getting commission from all of your hard work and really has no clue on whats going on. No matter how good you do in terms of meeting company goals management wants more more more..You can exceed company goals by 50% and next month they would expect you to beat goals by 55%....You can't win.. And if you don't hit goals at all. Forget it. you're dirt.management lives in another world
No lunch, Long hours constant state of fear from upper management
An enjoyable place to work with new and interesting challenges
Agency Administrator (Former Employee) – Toronto, On. – 4 September 2012
The company was the smallest of the primary rental companies in Canada. The industry had gone through major challenges due to the economy, and our company had to reduce the workforce and modify operating proceedures to remain competitive in the last few years. As a result of the changes, we were a well organized operation. We worked extremely together and the interdepartment separation did not exist. Though we had our established duties, each day could bring new issues that had to be addressed. We all did our duties and assisted each other to ensure we were able to meet the customer needs. The management was hands on and visible. Through my function as internal auditor, I enjoyed reviewing activity and persuing the paper trail to verify my findings. Sadly, this also resulted in the hardest part of the job, when I had to report the misdeeds of my co-workers to upper management.
great team spirit. new and interesting challenges.
Fast paced professional environment with great people
