On a very busy day can be very hard and stressful when you don't have the proper equipment to perform our job duties. I've learned to have patients and take situations one step at a time. The hardest part of the job is trying to do everything alone. We are very short of help a lot of times. Management does what they can. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting people from different cultures.
Paid time off and Holiday pay and time off
Walking on the pure concrete in the heat putting pain on the legs and back
Great place to work. Excellent working environment, excellent training

Very busy, lots of tours arriving from all over the world to pick up their cars. The guests are very tired because of the time difference so they are jet lagged most of the time.
Trying to make them understand the upgrades and insurance is always the most difficult part of the job. However, when explained properly the client is usually more inclined to purchase in order to make their traveling experience better.

Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Spokane, WA – May 1, 2017
Thrifty was a wonderful place to work for. You learn the basics on entry level sales, office administration, organization, and daily game plans.
This job had a high importance on customer service, which was the best part of the job, interacting with people. It was also one of the biggest challenges of the job, having to take care of the occasional customer who might not be having a good day. This was one of the many examples why this job is a great learning experience.
Counter Sale Representative (Former Employee) – Newport Beach, CA – April 14, 2017
greeting customer from other states and countries were amazing, and a great experience when interacting with them. The team I worked with was amazing and always had each other's back. The hardest part of my job was telling a customer we couldn't rent them a car. The best part of my job was surprising the customer with a better car then what they expected.
