Very heavy on profiling (Won't go into detail). If there are vehicles available they will either say "no nothing is available" or "only large pickup trucks available" (even when there was a selection available besides trucks). Management gives very little direction and will also exercise distrust towards staff. Very snappy clientele whom will often lie about experiences to get discounts or potential staff reprimand.
Pros
Friday was lunch provided by the company, but will normally be pizza due to "cost". Shifts dont go past 6pm Mon-Fri and Noon Sat-Sun
Cons
Management expresses very little trust towards staff

I learned a lot working at discount, but what I truly enjoyed was the people you met. We dealt with a lot of cruise ship customers and they were from all over the world. The stories were amazing.

Vraiment cette entreprise que j’ai évaluer est affreuse,les toilettes sont infectes, ils n’ont aucun respect des clients et employés. Ils ne nettoies pas les véhicule et ne font aucun entretien sur les véhicules. Mais je reviens au toilettes pas de papier hygiénique n’y savons pour les mains. Non vraiment attention à cette entreprise.

One of the worse companies that I ever worked for. High stress environment, litlte to no job training and little to no support from management. Constantly getting yelled at by customers because there was never enough cars to fulfill reservations and constantly being yelled at by management because the customers are upset. Constantly understaffed due to sick calls/staff turnover, so you end up working 11-13hr days.

Was hired as a casual driver, the guy that goes and picks up customers, cars,transfers cars from location to location, and washes cars when able to. Management would never make up a work schedule so you never knew if your working the next day and when

Emploi qui bouge beaucoup tout dépend de la succursale. Environnement qui peux être stressant. Mais de bons avantages. La gestion tente du mieux de faire des horaires 4 jours de travail 3 jours de congé.

Discount est comme une famille. Tout le monde se connait, tout le monde se parle. Le travail peut être difficile et les conditions peuvent ne pas aider celui-ci mais l'ambiance le rend palpitant.

Poor management, consistently understaffed because of poor management resulting in extremely high turn over rates. Zero support from managers, next to no training. Essentially you are over worked, underpaid, and stressed out. No true opportunities for advancement as they advertise, the “raises” are 10 cents after 6 months, then 9 months, then every year. Shady business practices. Would not recommend to my worst enemy.

Enjoyed working there. Coworkers were great which set a great environment. Also pay was decent but hours scheduled was the only problem. Would recommend any university student to take on this job as it would be the best option for them.

The training does not successfully facilitate the practical experience of what is required. A lot more is picked up on the job. Free lunches on Friday, paid by the company.

Its a good place to work depending on where you are located. The branch I am at has no manager in office and don't need one. They do work with you and give you time off when you require it. Calling for help at certain locations can be a pain in the butt as they don't want to give you support. You have some managers that would go above and beyond to help you.

In a management roll myself.
There is room for advancement if you're favoured an can prove yourself. For the most part the team makes work bearable. Corporate & Upper management could care less about anyone below them in the chain. Salary is unfair for the expectations they have an unattainable bonuses. They don't provide you with the proper tools to run the business, ie. Cars! Which results in being ripped "new ones" by customers who have reservations that don't really mean anything. The benefits are okay after your 6 month probation period. No rrsp contributions or anything that would want you to retire with the company. Long hours and terrible pay for counter staff. Proper cleaning tools for vehicles are lacking. The company cheaps out on everything. Stay away, avoid the headache.

Very stressful job, managers always ask you work hard without any benefits, even managers never appreciate your hard work, too much responsibilities , too much work with low payment, customers always complain to you and managers ask you to make customer satisfy and keep the NPS score high but always not enough vehicles for customers and they complain to you and get the NPS score low. It's multi multi tasks job, answering phone, making agreement for customer, make sure cars are clean, clean the cars, and ..... not recommend it all. IF you get the job you can try it but you will get what I am saying ! Never appreciate your hard work at Discount, also always on short staff.

Would not recommend working here, they do not value their employees, unfair job expectations, no proper training, company has employees who bully other employees. Management is unfair, the pay is poor, find another place to apply.
