Management trainee (Current Employee), Calgary – March 19, 2014
96 hours every two weeks for full time MTs full pay cheque is 1250... If you are stuck at a bad branch you do everything from cleaning cars in your suit or delivering a car with no driver behind you so you wait outside during winter.. Don't waste your time they feed you the lies of promotions all day everyday.. There's mts in my branch that's been here – more... for 4 years.( they say you can be branch manager in 3 1/2) if your "sales" number is not above average you will never make it anywhere and if you don't beg customers for shouts you'll never get noticed by upper management. Overworked under paid if you make assistant manager hours and stress is 10x more and pay is not worth the jump
The only upside is SOME of the people you interact with daily but it's only some – less
Customer Assistance Representative (Former Employee), Regina, SK – March 16, 2014
Pros: advancement, benefits, sales training
Cons: negative work environment, pressure to maintain numbers, high turnover, hostile coworkers due to advancement
Enterprise is a good company for people looking to advance. It is busy, and fast paced. Management cares more about numbers than employees though since their bonus is based on this. The pay is not great compared to other rental companies that make commission. At Enterprise you make commission for your managers and this puts a huge pressure on sales. – more... Customer satisfaction is a key point though and I felt this was a positive. As I said you can advance, but you need to be in the "club" in order to do so. Overall, I did not enjoy this job because of the enormous amount of performance pressure with very little return for myself as I was not seeking advancement. – less

Management Trainee (Former Employee), Lloydminster, AB – October 16, 2013
Pros: free lunch at meetings
Cons: managers are too personal, accountablilty, work/life balance, micromanaging, very strict dress code, unfair advancement requirements
Enterprise has too many problems to mention, but by far the worst are the fact they expect 50+ hours a week minimum. They expect this because the "Guaranteed minimum wage" is 40k a year but most of your money is made in overtime since they only pay 14$ an hour. Also this is a thing they do not explain well during the interview process and you will not – more... realize till roughly your second week.
Other problems include job security (if your numbers are too low, or your having a bad day and you are a little off on the dress code your job is at risk), Management micromanaging (area managers make most of the decisions regarding the branch but often only visit one day a month), Accountability ( the management system is designed that the area manager make 90% of decisions regarding branch development but branch managers hold all the accountability if the decision leads to negative growth whereas if it produces positive growth they get promoted), Advancement requirements (the advancement requirements/promotions are not based on ability but purely on branch numbers eg. there was a big hail storm in Calgary and huge demand for rentals, numbers went up and a dozen people got management promotions because of the high numbers not because they were the best people), and managers will call you after hours. – less
Cons: long business day (730am-615pm), slow turnover for promotion
The great thing you get from working at Enterprise is how to manage your time and multi task. Enterprise really does give you the training to be a successful manager and how to run your own store. The typical day involves all parts of the business. From selling, accounts recievable, phones, and marketing are just some of the things you could do before – more... lunch. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to meet a bunch of different customers in a short amount of time. You get to know these people on a personal level very quick and then its our turn to take it over and make sure they recieve the best customer service possible. The main thing I have learned working here is customer service. Providing great customer service has shown me that it can grow my business, make myself more money and have customers turn into friends. – less

Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Edmonton – September 18, 2013
Pros: team building events
Cons: long hours
A Typical day at work involves Managing the floor, Making sure every customer is helped in a timely friendly fashion. Leading my team to drive customer services and profitability of the branch. This involved team building, training, and organizing in-house contests to make work fun and build friendly competitiveness between other staff at the branch, – more... relating to up-sells.
I've learned a lot of things working with enterprise. I've had lots of opportunity to hone my customer services skills. As well as leading a team of people running a successful branch. This includes training, developing and team building.
The most enjoyable part of the job was probably the people who I get to work with.
The hardest part about the job is the work life balance. Working with Enterprise involves putting in a lot of hours. However since my latest promotion, I now work an average of 11-12 hours a day, sometimes without taking a lunch. This leaves me drained at the end of the day and I find i'm neglecting other aspects of my life. – less
