work environment was really laxed, co-workers where great to work with management sucked
Diesel Technician (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVNovember 19, 2018
I made it almost a year, they put inexperienced people in management positions and they couldn't manage there way out of a card board box, There more excided to terminate an employee then to work with them and understand there situation. They don't seem to understand how to make a business work. Co-workers where really great and very helpful. would not recommend working at any Penske in las vegas until they replace there management.
Pros
great co-workers
Cons

Lease Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Wilkes-Barre, PANovember 16, 2018
Iconic American brand still stuck in the 60's and 70's. Extremely old school inventory and product software used, unfortunately, I got dumber by using it. Great company perks like car and awards event, very strict on dress and travel.
Pros
Company Car, TeleDoc
Cons
Strict disciplinary system, low base

A fast-paced work environment with advancement opportunities as long as you can relocate.
Assistant Manager/Manager (Current Employee) –  OklahomaNovember 15, 2018
The job is based heavily on customer service and sales. You must also properly manage the branch trucking fleet. It is a very stressful at times and must consistently have good time management to balance daily responsibilities along with the distractions of customer phone calls and walk-ins.

HR Generalist (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INNovember 14, 2018
Working with the Penske team was great! Roger Penske is very down to earth and truly cares about his employees. Great company to work for.
A nice perk when I was here was being able to watch the Indy 500 in the Penske suites.

Delivered rental vehicles to vendors as well as other Penske lots.
Hiker/Driver (Former Employee) –  Henrietta, NYNovember 12, 2018
Work day began at 3:00PM and went to 11:00PM. Planned the work process to enable all rental vehicles to be delivered on time. DOT inspection and complete fueling completed on each vehicle delivered. Management left the building at 5:00PM so drivers were on their own to complete the list of vehicles to be delivered.

A good learning experience.
Senior Programmer (Current Employee) –  Reading, PANovember 9, 2018
Penske does a great job of putting developers through training, and providing alot of tools for learning. The work expectations are quite inconsistent depending on department/team, and while they provide a great plan for growth their skills matrix is very outdated. The only con is the salary, which will most likely get blamed on the corporate location.

Order Selector (Former Employee) –  Chesterfield, MINovember 8, 2018
I have no bad things to say about Penske it’s fair as long as you see fit. You will ride a pallet jack so walking is definitely out of the question. If you are looking for something to pass time this is it.

Wouldn't Do it over again
Parts Manager (Former Employee) –  Benton, ARNovember 6, 2018
This place is poorly ran. Budget is not realistic. Turnover rate is ridiculous. Training for positions is not well planned out and job security is only worth it if you are a below average employee.

Dream Job Alert
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Fairfield, CTNovember 3, 2018
The manager was so patient with me and how I picked up on tasks. If I got overwhelmed he stepped in to assist with no harsh words; he was truly a patient leader. The dealership was exciting. The brand of cars had a reputation for being high quality and luxurious. So it was exciting to be around the glossy vehicles. Its nice to work in a place where everyone is easy going and focused on making money.
Pros
Everything
Cons
Absolutely nothing bad to say
