"I love this company! The negative reviews that people write do not make any sense to me. It is a very competitive career and it takes a lot of resilience and persistence. The pay is not bad. 40k to start. I will say that the hours are long and I put in about 50 hours a week if not more. However, that is the price to pay to be at a Fortune 500 company with a career path where you could make a lot of money very quickly. How do you get there? You work hard, you take your career in your hands and you work! Are there ways that the company can be unethical? Absolutely, but you are going to find that anywhere. It is up to you how you handle that and whether you will be unethical. I have qualified my first two months in the top 5 in the region without being unethical. It is possible. This company provides an awesome path for a career! But your career is your own, very much so! You either take control of it and work hard, or let it take control of you and blame everyone and everything around you for it. It is an awesome company!!"

"When I worked for Enterprise Rent A Car, it was a blessing in disguise. I learned many skills beyond what I could have ever imagined and it helped more grow more not only as a person, but also professionally. I learned how to do multiple things all at once and also going out of my way to help reach solutions for customer problems, while also earning more profits for the company. Being with Enterprise Rent A Car, I learned everything from reading balance statements, distinguishing revenues, profits, losses, expenses, interacting with many types of customers, working on individual goals and also thriving as a team to exceed many goals!"

"I've worked for Enterprise for almost two years and the job itself is very rewarding. However due to COVID-19, with everything going on, my place of work has not been the safest place to be and with me caring so much about my health, it was just time for me to move on to other opportunities."

"I've worked with Enterprise Rent a Car from August 2016 unitl May of this year before I was laid off due to COVID-19. The company is very rewarding for anyone who is willing to learn and grow whether they end up with a promotion or not. If anyone can survive at least a year working for Enterprise and also make Top 50 and A-Lists, then they can survive just about anywhere with lots of success on the way. Overall, I really loved working with the company and I have come across many co-workers who not only became mentors to me but also lifelong friends!"

"The company offers many chances to grow and learn in a fast paced environment. That said, it is a very grueling job for little pay (60+ hours a week for 40k). It is a well respected program and those that can stick it out can get into top MBA programs and other good management jobs. Interviews are pretty straight forward. I read Enterprise Rent-A-Car Management Training Program: Interview Questions and Job Experience: Enterprise Salaries, Enterprise Interviews, Enterprise Reviews Kindle Edition and I aced the interview. Make sure you know the STAR method behavioral questions in the book. They are big on this process of thinking."

"Looking for a job 6 months - 8 years out of Enterprise, your only ability/experience out of Enterprise will only be sales. Growth in management outside of Enterprise is through internal highering, so you are only training for being an Enterprise Manager, don't be fooled. Your hourly pay will not increase after you are a management trainee, you will just work more hours to make-up for your pay. For example, you, your co-employee assistant and management crew in the area will go to mandatory meetings on top of 50-60 hour work weeks.(Look up the labor law lawsuits with Enterprise on Google) Meanwhile, upper management was promoted based off their ability to have no integrity with customers. They do this by selling themselves and a product with no integrity. The communication and workplace is based off of lies and un-accomplishable expectations, no matter the circumstance. This causes you to hate customers, your manager, and even yourself. Next, the higher you grow with Enterprise, the faster you are released, unless you have luck in numbers. Most numbers are based on military, dealership, traveling, and city economic growth numbers. You have no ability to change the amount of growth or average salary in a city. Also, discrimination is a part of the culture. You will notice that females will get promoted faster and will be hired more often than males. This keeps them an equal opportunity employer, while the women intuitively leave causing more turnover. My suggestion, if you like the pay as an assistant or branch manager, wait for growth in a job you like, and wait tables as a second job meanwhile. You will work less hours and make the same pay to start."

"When I began my career with ERAC, I received a lot of training and guidance to become successful. If you wanted to pass the qualifying exams within 6 months, you were required to act as a manager on lesser income."

"Horrible. Don't care for employees. Tolerate immoral things."

What do you like about working at Enterprise Rent-A-Car?

"That you can come directly to your branch manager, area manager, HR people or recruiter when you need them."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be honest with your interviewer about the time commitment you are willing to make. Make sure they know what's important to you in a job."

What don't you like about working at Enterprise Rent-A-Car?

"The hours that I put in Enterprise is not worth the pay. The managers don't care about us and our work conditions. They only do what's beneficial for them. They do not value and respect our lives and overworked us when they can. I've seen ethical problems being overlooked. They tolerate cheating and stealing of sales... and keep whoever make their sales look good. They claim they care about the customers but they squeeze every cent out of them as they can."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"To listen to our inputs and make changes for the better. They keep on doing the same thing and not care about what we have to say. Be more understanding towards us, they've been at our level before."
