Good opportunity/Tough Hours
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – April 22, 2018
Enterprise is a pressure cooker of a company with lots of opportunities for advancement, but at the expense of your work/life balance.
A typical day sees you arriving at work around 6:45a and leaving around 6:15p. During the day, the goal is to drive sales, revenue, and make sure that your staff has what they need to meet demand. Employees get experience in managing staff, creating sales and marketing plans, financial management, and other tasks that are typically characteristic of running a small business venture. However, Enterprise often times under equips you for this task; overbooking is extremely common.
The enjoyable aspects of the job revolve around the team chemistry and the fun of sales contests and fitting the "pieces of the puzzle" together to maximize your branch's profit. The environment is fast paced and I am rarely ever bored.
The challenging aspect is that it is a very high stress role with long hours and (in my opinion) a pay structure that requires you to consistently work overtime to earn a living wage. Enterprise will sharpen your ability to handle confrontation as well; customer service and handling unpleasant interactions are a large part of the job.
