As a current Rental Sales Agent its hard to tell the truth about this company's dishonest labor practices. It's run like a fly-by-night business. Corporate "policy" is whatever the Manager On Duty says it is at that moment and rarely is it ever consistent. "If you're not happy, with unemployment at 8-9%, maybe you should find something else to do!"

That's Avis Corporate attitude and a direct quote from one of their "listening meetings". They put on a good game face but their bottom line is to lie, cheat and steal as much as they can from you, the "human" resource. When their done using you, they'll replace you with some other unsuspecting victim.

If you want a job that pays you on your performance, go elsewhere. Their "sales incentive program" is a guessing game, even when you ask them. Hard numbers are impossible to verify and you'll find they've designed it that way intentionally. When someone did confront the management team about their misrepresentations, they were told, "Avis can just make it your job and end the program entirely."

It's a great cashier's job if you're in high school and still live at home with Mom & Pop. Don't expect to make this into a career, they won't let you. Beware of the empty promises and claims of great bonuses. If you think you're a great sales person, ask them what the average monthly payout is for the location you're applying at. Proof is in the pudding. Don't ever expect to make more than 1-3% on the additional revenue you bring the company. Keep that number in mind when negotiating your hourly wage. Keep in mind the slower seasons when you aren't busy. You'll find yourself scraping by just to pay the rent, forget about that vacation time, you won't have any funds to do anything but sit at home waiting for it to end. That's if you're allowed to get more than 3 days in a row off.

I totally Agree. I sued this company for their Breach of Employment Agreement...And
I WON! Also the Labor Board informed me that this Avis/Budget Rental location investigated several times for their unfair Practices.

So I am currently looking at joining the rental car industry but I am hearing some horror stories about damn near every company that is hiring. I even found lawsuits pending against these companies for unfair treatment to their workers. I get that most rental car jobs must suck, but I have heard some crazy stuff! Crap like off-the-clock work, unpaid overtime, no lunches or breaks? This is asinine if these companies get away with stuff like that. Can anyone here vouch for these unfair practices?

I got hooked up with this company about three weeks ago thru their Recruiting department. After talking all of their online tests I was finally contacted by a representative that stated they were with the"Avis/budget group recruiting center". This I find out after the fact,is is an organization that calls itself the National Recruitment center and about 10 other names. Originally the Seaton Group out Chicago did this but they disappeared as did the current company People Scout. Most of the people that contact the applicant work out of their homes and are remunerated if an applicant is hired.

Basically the are a contract HR service that provides applicants for Avis Budget to interview so they can justify hiring the one already decided upon even before the job listing was posted. The applicant contacted thru this company has no hope what so ever of getting hired. They will get you interviews all over the USA. I drove to Portland, Oregon last week for two of these.

The Avis station manager said she was impressed and wanted me too meet with another manager while I was in Portland. She said she would call me that after noon after 3PM. Never heard from anyone. Next morning I called the telephone number she gave me to call if I had any questions and fond out it was her day off. The Asst station manager at PDX, got the woman on the phone and relayed the message that she had given my paperwork it to another manager to call and or interview me, as Thursday was her day off. She couldn't understand why no one had contacted me. So I left and started my drive back to Reno. three hours into the drive I received a call from some on from the Avis Budget Admin office at the Portland (PDX) airport. She stated she would arrange a telephone interview and would get back with me. That was Thursday 07/09/2015. At 4 Am this Sunday morning, I received an email from this National recruiting center stating they decided on someone else. Good thing I recorded the interview. Law Suit tmie.
