Women typically do not get higher ranking promotions
General (Former Employee), MichiganJanuary 6, 2014
If 50% of the workplace is women (not verified, but typical split) I would see roughly one woman per 40 men advancing to the higher positions. Promotions to higher ranking jobs is unusual for women.

Management concepts are sound. Strong on improving efficiency and driving down costs.

Don't Work For This Company!!! You've Been Warned...Waste of Time!!
Manager Trainee (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VADecember 30, 2013
Pros: its a paycheck
Cons: everything, cleaning trucks, lying to customers, answering the phone 200 times per day, wearing nice clothes to rent trucks...what a joke!!
I worked for this greedy company that fosters a culture of compulsive liars that are conniving and manipulative business professionals. Employees are taught to lie to customers...for instance lets say you have a reservation for a tuck rental and today is moving day and you mosey on down to Penske to pick up your truck. You already have your credit card – more... on file and have all of your volunteer movers ready to get busy loading you up...except there is one problem, they don't have your truck...Then the nice young and eager Manager Trainee informs you that your truck broke down, had a flat tire, check engine light was on, or any other lie under the sun as to not be accountable for not having your truck that you have reserved months in advance. These are excuses upper management passes down. I've been there done that...I've heard and seen it with my own eyes. If a companies middle MGT is comfortable lying to customers how do you think corporate MGT feels...exactly the same way!!! Their even more greedy in Greedy Green Hills!! Save yourself from wasting your time with there MGT Trainee program and find a real legitimate business to work for. The transportation business is corrupt!!! Don't believe the lies.. Also you losers up in Green Hills reading this and trying to manipulate Penske's image need to get a life, there is hope for you too! Go find a real job! – less

Biller/Plant Resolution Clerk (Former Employee), El Paso, TXDecember 13, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: short brakes
A typical day at work was just like any other job get prepared for the shift and do the best for the customers.

I learned a lot as of different types of computer software and customer service skills.

My co-workers were always available to help each other as a good team.

The hardest part of the job was on shift change because you got to have everything – more... ready for the following shift without falling behind.

The most enjoyable part of the job was finishing the all the workload before our shitfs. – less

Great working environment with percise Communication
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee), Batavia, ILDecember 5, 2013
Pros: paid breaks
Penske is a great corporation. Our day started with a team meeting for the follow up day, then straight to work after. A regular day consist of Picking orders in excess of +150 lbs. Packaging and staging orders for delivery is the normal everyday. Management communicates with everyone to ensure a safe and prosperous environment. My coworkers were excellent – more... team members to work with, always helping one another to achieve the task ay hand. There is no hard part about any job that I've have ever had, EVER. The most enjoyable part is lifting the rims, heavy drums and wheel hubs and challenging my body to adapt. – less

Typical Day at Penske
Rental Representative (Current Employee), Orlando,FLNovember 18, 2013
There is no real typical day at Penske. Each and every day is a new one with new challenges. I've learned a lot about inventory control and sales. We are required never to say no to a customer, even if it means overbooking. That's where inventory control comes in. We have many different locations in our district throughout central Florida and we can – more... pull trucks from those locations on an as needed basis. This job keeps you on your toes and will definitely keep your brain searching for new and inventive ways of doing things. The managers are great and really help you out when you're in need. The most enjoyable part of the job is simply getting to know the regular customers and knowing that you made someone's day by just being able to get them what they needed in a courteous and timely manner. – less
