Pros: high commision, oppurtunities for overtime and overtime commision, meeting all kinds of people from all over the world.
Cons: horrible benefits, managers on all different pages, low base pay, tough travel customers.
A typical day at work entailed renting vehicles. We processed between 50 and 600 reservations per shift. Reports constantly had to be maintained, and sales goals consistently met. I learned that even though optional additional services are important to sell, customer satisfaction and retention was more important. The management at Thrifty was very difficult – more... to handle. There were two to four managers on at any given time, and they all had different ideas of how to do one thing. I often found it very confusing and stuck close to the manager with the most authority, experience and competance. My co-workers were very supportive, as we all shared the same environment. The hardest part of the job was figuring out which manager to listen to and which one would not throw you under the bus, and the most enjoyable part was the customers. – less
