Lube Technician in Etobicoke, ON
Management not organized, actual work is good
Actual work is very easy. Lots of overtime. Most co workers from every department are nice.No opportunities for advancements. Management will try to blame and berate you for issues when they are wrong. Management is not organized, treat good employees bad and reward bad employees. If you get work at ABG, just keep working till you find better employment cause it's only a place to pass through. A lot of good hard working employees have left Avis budget Toronto, because of bad management. Never bend over backwards for managers.They will abuse that privilege, and make sure you always document and record every interaction incase they come after you.

The employees are excellent people to work with
The employees are great. When given respect, autonomy to perform their assigned tasks and empathy as human beings, along with the coaching needed which is the role of a good leader; they excel. Even though this is a union environment, my success throughout the almost 6 years as a Manager was entirely due to the unwavering support I received from the employees. During peak periods I had 150 + employees scheduled. I have consistently worked towards "leadership that lifts and empowers others" and it has rewarded me with the success I have experienced.However, since the past 2 years or so management culture has changed for the worse and is now based on - lead by intimidation, lies and constant observation of employees. If you are not part of the inner management circle you are ostracized and eventually pushed out when opportunity presents itself.The irony is, all have to go thru a yearly mandatory Code of Conduct review. I am assuming top managers are exempt from this yearly exercise or their position makes them untouchable.

RENTAL SERVICE AGENT in Ottawa, ON
Corrupt beyond reproach. Up-selling over people.
At the location i worked at there was a man who would come in fairly regullarly i dont know his title, but he would bring in selling technique manuals all the time. We were told that if we did not hit up selling targets we would be discliplined and they had 100 creative ways to tell us to decieve customers above all else to put them in the most expensive car possible.

High turnover and no appreciation for staff
Very high turnover! They were always struggling to fill positions, leaving the remaining staff overworked. You're not allowed to take any time off during the summer months. Health and dental benefits were VERY basic. No room for growth and you are lucky if you receive a wage increase of more than a few cents above minimum wage after over a year of service.
