If you have any brains don't ever work for this company loyalty means nothing and when you need help they leave you in the poo. Bad management and your just there to make money for them lucky if they get your commission right. And if you turn up 1 min late they deduct 15mins from your salary is this really who a big company like Avis should treat their staff hopefully they will wake up.
A very busy company though could be disorganised at times due to various competing business functions that cause overlap of work or duplication. Especially when using offshore resources prior to consulting the data team for some projects
I still working with at moment ,but not working because on lockdown .When I am there I am on 0 contact so avivable to work .the job is delivering vehicles to home address all over the county plus return veihicles to main hubs over the uk
Nota great company to work for, very focused on carers visiting as many people as possible in one day, working very very long hours. Expected to use own vehicles, with special insurance, mileage payments barely covering the cost.
Dealing with the day to day running of office. Preparing and cleaning cars as well delivering when needed to customers. Also taking cars back to head office in Belfast, and replacing them with cars needed for bookings within that week.
Avis Budget Group Management is very good at motivating staff with talking but they do not act upon what they say, which leaves you very stressed at work when you are looking for supports and fleet which impacts business. I learned that you have to work more hours than advised to ensure your tasks are completed. Hardest part of the job is getting support from managers and doing ridiculous amount of work for not enough pay and then not getting paid correctly. Outsource staff are the most enjoyable part of the job as they will support you more than anyone else in the company.
Great job if you like driving, Terrible Company to work for.
Driver (Former Employee) - East Midlands - 5 January 2020
I was semi retired and worked at both Derby and the East Midlands Airport offices. The job itself is dead easy, really enjoyable and you get to work with some great people. Unfortunately the Management are a bunch of incompetent fools who treat you like something they've just trodden in.
Its a zero hours contract so don't rely on getting the hours and even if you do get the hours, don't expect getting paid correctly.. that in itself is a battle you have to fight every month. The managers get a bonus if they work within financial restraints and so will "underpay" drivers if they start to go over budget. This practice is actively encouraged by the regional Managers.
This job is not a career and neither will it lead to one despite what they may tell you. Do the job on your own terms and stand up for yourself,
People great very much if the suit fits, as mid management a lot of pressure which is normally out of your control. Very London centric. What I would say you will either be at AGB for ever or last for a short while of the 20 that completed ATC training only 2 left ! This course I believe runs a lot during the year
Poorly managed business, the whole onus is placed upon the branch staff, senior management take all credit for the hard work whilst normally creating the majority of the issues. No understanding or care of customer service, so long as the paperwork is completed, to many reports and not enough staff to do what’s required, never enough fleet to fulfill customers needs.
Avis cares about the wellbeing of its staff. Pay is not as good as some competitors and at the operations level it is very make or break. If you aren’t from a car background picking it up can be challenging
It's a good step for anyone with not much experience and you can use it as a stepping stone to move onto greater things. People come and go but if you have a good team anything is possible. If they can only match salary with what staff do people would have no complaints
