Think Twice, Horrible Management, Driver Work Relation
Trailer driver (Former Employee), White Marsh, MDJanuary 19, 2015
Cons: everything
Beware!!!! Worked here for a few years. When given a raise, something was always taken back, so it was not a raise. 70 hour work week, for 40 hours of pay. Terrible communication between driver and management. After one month, still waiting for final wages and accumulated vacation. It's activity based pay, lot of free time given to company without pay. Some days, paid under state minimum wage. This company should be ashamed of what they are paying their drivers. Even a single guy, can't survive on this salary.

overall the company seemed very well organized and willing to provide the tools necessary to help advance their employees.
Manager in Training/Internship (Former Employee), Orlando, FLJanuary 5, 2015
Typical day at work started by checking truck inventory and making sure that scheduled pick up trucks were in place. Job was pretty easy once you get the hang of the different products/services available and build relationship with local businesses that rented trucks. The hardest part of the job was coping with the slow period which could be hours before any pick ups or phone quotes would come through. The most enjoyable part of the job was the culture and job security.

Great Job but Management looking to find issues that don't really exist
Will not disclose (Current Employee), Will not discloseJanuary 4, 2015
Pros: laid back atmosphere, great co workers, customers love us
Cons: breaks are not defined, management is overbearing, too many bosses that do not communicate well when sorting out issues
I actually like my job but management continues to micro manage everything. It was not like that when I first started but the management now tends to look for the smallest item to make you look like a fool. I sometimes feel like I am being treated like a child. I have been though seven managers in seven years working at PENSKE. My current DRM tends to enjoy swearing at me when it is not warranted which drives me crazy.

Branch Rental Manager (Former Employee), Pompano Beach, FLDecember 12, 2014
Penske provided the experience and advancement opportunities to gain necessary management and sales skills through their management trainee program. I worked with many types of customers throughout each day varying from million-dollar lease customers to a simple one-time household mover. I learned techniques to sell my product to each customer over the phone and in person. Working as a team with upper management and coworkers was integral to running a branch efficiently. The most enjoyable parts of the job were the logistical challenges that arose every day and the creative solutions we generated to be implemented to ensure customer satisfaction. I learned how to manage a team of employees in order for them to advance in the field while making sure their main focus was the customer experience they provided.
