Very stressful work environment. No formal training.
City Manager (Former Employee) –  Jamaica, NYFebruary 4, 2019
There is zero training. You learn as you make mistakes. There are very limited resources to make your job some what easier. One thing for sure you will be better at is Miti-tasking, as you’re responsible for everything.
Pros
Pay
Cons
No training program for management, lack of resources.

More write-up's then commission
Customer Sale Representative (Former Employee) –  Inglewood, CAJanuary 31, 2019
Yell at you for going outside to get a car when management isn't helping you fulfilling the customer's reservation who is standing in front of you.

I was written up more times here, at the age of 54, than I have been my entire life combined. They wrote me up for using 3 days of my PTO (one at a time) over a course of a month because, it showed a pattern. When I asked what the pattern was, their response was I don't know.

It took me 9 months to get a uniform shirt that fit.

Their commission structure is not industry standard. They pay less upfront then try and chip away at your commission with additional hoops to jump through.

Advantage goes to Advantage
Pros
Coworkers and some management
Cons
Always working in fear of losing your job

Not a good job for someone with a family
Rental Sales Agent (Former Employee) –  Denver, COJanuary 21, 2019
This job is not a good option for a person with a family. Sales incentives construct most of your paycheck and if you work evening hours, you do not have the ability to make as much money in sales as daytime people do. Management at the office in Denver is very dishonest. I would steer clear of this company unless you are using them as a temporary solution until you find a better job. Employees are also very dishonest with customers when it comes to selling upgrades and additional services. These deceptive practices are ignored by management.
Pros
potential to make sales commission in addition to hourly pay
Cons
very poor management. very dishonest management.

Be careful
Customer Service Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 31, 2018
Advantage Ez is a very money hungry company. Customer Service Reps generate all the revenue but the higher management get all the money. I've worked for other rental companies in the past and this is by far the worse company so far....

A typical day at work
SeaTac Airport Shuttle Driver (Former Employee) –  SeaTac, WAOctober 15, 2018
A typical day at work was taking people back and forth to the
airport. The hardest part of the job was having to frequently drive great distances to pick up people and take them back.
