Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Aberdeen, Aberdeen City – 26 January 2018
I worked at Europcar for just over 11 years.. It was a great place to work. Really enjoyed my time there. Hours were long and you could get delayed from late flights, but that was part of the job and it was always appreciated if you had to work over. Sales bonus was really great and training was always giving to help you improve and achieve

They say that they are with the disability act and they are not. They are meant to train you on new things but they don't. My hours were pretty okay but I know people that work their and they get taken advantage of. My manager at the time was aware of my disablitiies and still I was too slow.
Great workplace. A fun, interesting and engaging job
Car Rental Agent (Former Employee) – Guernsey – 7 January 2018
I worked the desk at the airport in Guernsey. I met a lot of people arriving for pleasure and we were therefore able to share enthusiasm for the island. I met a lot of happy people. I also met a lot of business men/women who came to the island for work often and therefore built relationships with them.

Worst company I have ever worked for,you are not appreciated for the work you do,but are expected to do and work as long as needed.Threats and bullying are how the management get you to work.I have worked for them over ten years,can't leave because of my age,and if a company is needed to be investigated it's this one.

Once my apprenticeship was completed (Current Employee) – new street car park edinburgh – 21 November 2017
A typical day at work is very poor and boring your brain gets to work and learn about cars the culture in Europcar is very dry hardest part off the job is working on the computer system most enjoyable part is meeting customers and helping them the down side is its a ZERO hour contract witch means the can get rid off you very easily
New Business Executive (Former Employee) – Watford – 7 November 2017
Europcar was a lovely place to work. The day was taking up by enough duties to fill the day but not overly stressful. The management were great as well as very helpful HR dept. The most enjoyable part of the job was working within a great team.
Driver (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 3 November 2017
I recently started a delivery drivers job. On arrival at the depot I was introduced to one of the Managers who photocopied my licence and passport then told me I could go deliver vehicles with another new guy. There was no explanation of how the paperwork was filled in nor any advice given on the individual vehicles. We were sent to the middle of Manchester at rush hour to pick up from Piccadilly Station then had to go to Oldham also in rush hour. Cutting a long story short we worked 10hrs with no break and had to eat whilst driving, if we hadn't done so we would have been out much later. This company does not seem to have the first clue about looking after staff, to be honest I don't think they actually care.
Driving various vehicles
Long hours, little training, undervalued, minimum wage, zero hours contract
