Great summer work
Vehicle Detailer (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONNovember 25, 2013
Pros: working with different cars
Cons: lack of organization
A typical day consisted of preparing and detailing rental vehicles for customer use. Along with that checking cars in and out of the Hamilton airport. Management was unorganized at times and some senior co-workers displayed poor attitudes. Hardest part of the job was working solo sometimes and balancing the demand for out going cars and checking in – more... cars. Thoroughly enjoy driving and thus enjoyed working with the different vehicles. – less

Shuttle Driver/Customer Service (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCOctober 14, 2013
Pros: the team, work flexibility and benefits when working overtime.
I have been working here since June 2011 and I have had a great time. I am still currently working for this company. I enjoy working with everyone in this company from coworkers to management. All my managers are easily approachable if I have any questions or concerns.

My days are very busy and the shift times varies. Sometimes I get called in 5AM – more... and sometimes I have had to work until 1 AM during busy times. They are 8 hour shifts but I work overtime if requested by management.

My typical days are moving rental vehicles to their required stations. And there has been times hen I have moved 100 cars or even more when it is busy. I have to check all vehicles for any damage, cleanliness and follow all guidelines. – less

Rental Sales Agent (Former Employee), Richmond, BCMay 11, 2012
Pros: colleagues
Cons: managers and them bigots
I really enjoyed my time working for this company because of the great people that I've met during my time employed. Its a pretty big car rental location located at the airport with maybe about 100 employees onsite from the rental agents, shuttlers, to the cleaners, and washers. Excellent people to work with but a very challenging environment to be – more... in. During my time working there I've acquired a lot of knowledge about dealing with people in all sorts of situation. Yah the work is pretty typical but the stress of dealing with tired, cranky, and the list goes on and on and on, can make a simple transaction into an extremely difficult situation sometimes. Through the opportunity from the lady that hired me and trained me and stood by me to help me, I've had the opportunity of a life-time to be able to develope an unkeen sense of patience and flexibility with people that I had never had before. I would like to thank that person for that opportunity she gave me. Little did she knew that she changed my life in a lot more ways than she'd realized. However, this corportation has been in restructuring mode for the past 10 years now and not for the better for us workers. We are unionized, "they" don't want to have anything to do with unions. Nuff said. Too bad that this is where its heading, but otherwise it was a great and enjoyable experience working there because of the "individuals" that are the real people running the company and not the bigots sitting in the back office thinking they've got everything figured out. – less

Pros: my co workers
Cons: my superiors
I was a data entry operator, which means I sat at my desk and keyed in rental agreements and accounts payable and receivable, it was very important to like your co-workers because you spent 8 hours a day with them, and I did indeed.
