    I worked at Avis Budget Group part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of off-site work through driving, and constant opportunities to check out how various cars handle, if you're into that.

    Cons

    Miserable pay, you're practically forced to travel in packs to deliver cars to and from Avis stores, and you have to bid for a schedule with other employees instead of simply asking for one.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees a salary that isn't insultingly cheap, and allow them proper flexibility for schedules to hire more people who aren't retirees.

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pay is 21.09 but it drops when benefits are added. You get top dollar cars for 19.99

    Cons

    Buses in bad shape and when you report them on the DVR its as if its not even submitted they do nothing about it. Oh and don't let them fast talk you into signing up so quick... This location will be closing shop in a few years once the AIRPORT TRAIN is completed. They failed to tell anyone this when hiring. So if you plan on getting seniority youll get that but if you want stability this is not the place. Oh if CHP... does their inspections and your bus is in bad shape and management tells you to go anyways the ticket is still yours to pay for. Avis is a selfish company and they only think about what's in their best interest. Oh and if you have any issues with employees remember you're always at fault unless your a company favorite or a female. They favor the opposite sexes most. One more thing. The union takes out their dues even if u want it or not and they are useless tools they are never in the office when u need them you have to constantly leave voice mails and they might get back to you. It's like paying for an extra channel on cable that you don't even need nor use. AS I SAID SENORITY so when you come on board you'll most likely get the graveyard shift.

    Advice to Management

    BOW YOUR HEADS IN SHAME! You managers are as bootleg as they come and are just as crooked. Step your game up. Yes your drivers recently got sent home by CHP and ticketed because you weren't on your stuff... Guess who called them. BWAHAHAHAHAHAH.

    Pros

    Very organized given the size of the company. Managers have lots of experience which makes it a good experience for the other employees. No politics and not to much PC stuff. You can just be yourself.

    Cons

    None so far in my experience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. You guys are fantastic. Seriously.

    I worked at Avis Budget Group for less than a year

    Pros

    Driving a variety of cars, out on the road a lot

    Cons

    Still waiting on pay- they paid me for one shift over a whole month Long Hours- 7:30am start with 6pm earliest finish- would be sent out on a long run just before the end of the day. Incompetent Management- no idea how to set up a rota or deal with pay Facilities were awful- had to jetwash cars in the Asda Carpark, parked cars in public car park

    Advice to Management

    Rethink how you do things! Sort out your pay, induct new staff properly (I was never set up on their online salary system) and invest in a proper area to rent cars from.

    Pros

    Team work, customer service, nice people to work with. Different locations are respectful, kind and really nice to all the drivers.

    Weather, sometimes there's a special vehicle need to be transported to another location and a vehicle is buried in the dirty line and you need to move all the vehicles to get it.

    Advice to Management

    The company is awesome to work for because avis care and understand employees.

    Pros

    Staff discount on car and van hire

    Cons

    If it is important for you to feel valued you may wish to look elsewhere. As a driver (the lowest grade at the company) you are persona non-grata. This role is mainly filled by eastern Europeans who just need the money. Long exhausting days are the norm, leading to the drivers being a serious risk on the roads. Customers regularly complain of dirty cars, delivered late (the managers often send the drivers out on... impossible delivery schedules, with no time for a meal break), and inability of the drivers to communicate which is not their fault if they are given a customer-facing job without much English. The only way to survive this job is to do it part-time. If you do it full-time you'll suffer from serious exhaustion and you will not have a life.
