Toxic corporate culture that doesn't value thier most important asset - PEOPLE
Assistant Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 20, 2017
If you are looking for high earning potential and with a relatively good work life balance you may initially be sold on working for Xtra Lease. On paper the job sounds appealing but as you dig in, you will quickly see many glaring red flags in their company culture.
The company is grossly micromanaged from the top down, and as a sales rep you are expected to maintain a near minute-by-minute recap of your day. So much time is focused on maintaining individual rep accountability that sales, the primary function of the position, become secondary to providing live updates of your meetings and what you're doing.
Additionally, be prepared to relocate. I was made aware of this early on but was not told that the terms of the relocation were completely and totally non-negotiable. I was offered a "promotion" to another branch in the country and was terminated after asking for a slight salary bump. Yes, you read that right - Terminated because I attempted to renegotiate the terms of my relocation across the country.
Needless to say I was utterly shocked and totally disheartened by this decision to treat a hard working employee this way.
My one recommendation is this... If you value yourself as a person, do not work for this company regardless of how good the money may seem. No amount of money is worth your dignity as a human being.
