Extremely fast-paced and confusing work environment
Management Trainee (Former Employee) – Wilkes-Barre, PA – January 27, 2016
If you are not on your A-game from the second you clock in until the second you clock out and are off the property, you are going to want to look for a job somewhere else.
You will be expected to juggle about a dozen different tasks while assisting customers and finding trucks for reservations. Once you feel as if you have your day together, management will throw out some random meaningless task, but make it seem like the life of the company depends on it. After this, your day will go down the drain and everyone will try to pass the blame onto someone else as to whose fault it is.
Upper management will act like they want to see you succeed, then berate you if you need to ask them for help with anything.
It is a "only the strong survive" environment, but unfortunately for Penske, there are a lot of jobs that are MUCH easier and pay WAY more, which is why they have such a high turnover rate.
If you are having a hard time finding that first job out of college, then take a stab at Penske and use it as a resume builder. Give it 6 months to a year if possible, and you will realize what I am trying to put across in this review.
If you aren't hurting for work, though, pass this one over, because seriously, PENSKE SUCKS.
A lot of free lunches, especially when you first start.
Chaotic, confusing, no responsibility or accountability for anything.
