Avis Belfast
Driver (Former Employee) –  Belfast / Harbour4 May 2018
Worked for Avis Budget for a while in 2017. Tough but the garage staff and the manager are a good bunch of guys to work with/for. Staff who work with the company are treated fairly. When I was there, there was a high turnover but this was mainly because most had no work ethic and were lazy. It’s a busy outfit and I suppose that’s because they are the best.

I’d definitely work here again. It was a varied job of cleaning and driving.
Pros
Banter. Banter. Banter. Better paid than all the rest. Management very fair
Cons
Shifts are long but they go by very quickly.

Director, Performance Excellence Northern Region (Former Employee) –  Bracknell26 April 2018
Every day there's something new to learn, challenge, engage with Customers (external and internal) - a great place to work, with fantastic people.
The company has been investing in innovative technologies that will take the business into a new and exciting market place within the automative industry.

Poor Management and Negative environment with no support or training offered.
Store Manager (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London24 April 2018
As above - they are a terrible company and offer no support or training. They expect the world and give nothing to support that. They tell you to be on call every day all day and also have favourites which is very clear and obvious.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Long hours, poor management, favouritism is obvious, horrible working environment.

Little support from management
IT Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Bracknell, Berkshire1 April 2018
There is a high turnover of staff both permanent and contractor which makes running a project very difficult as there is no constancy. Management did not offer support nor fast decision making which was also very frustrating. However the people on the whole were great to work with. Would I work there again? Not with the existing structure.
Pros
Great work colleagues, refurbished offices
Cons
Little support from line management and blame game

Lack of change
Rental Sales Agent (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London29 March 2018
Room for improvement, major changes needed to see the benefits. Stuck to old ways of doing things and not willing to accept new ideas, non confirming to any change. Set in the old school ways.
Pros
Lots of opportunities through the online university
Cons
No work life balance, highly demanding, no staff, fleet is a mess

Worst company to work for
Rental Sales Agent (Current Employee) –  United Kingdom29 March 2018
Has to be the worse company I have worked for in years no support and training is shocking ie none at all.
Get thrown into the deep end running a branch as Rental sales agent with no thanks at all
You make one mistake and you get made to pay for it and belittled

Avoid working for this company as you fed a pack of lies
Pros
Worked with some brilliant people
Cons
Long hours, no support, shocking training, back stabbing people

Worst company to work for
Rental Sales Agent (Former Employee) –  Luton27 March 2018
management can’t organise
No overtime paid
Minimum wage zero hour contract for the drivers
Minimum wage for desk staff
Get treated like children
Management disturbing you while your on holiday
Staff members treating other staff member with disrespect
Get given new machines to use but don’t get any training on how to use them
Some days you spend 6 hours straight in the washbay
Customers get charged for damage on vechiles but some seem to never get repaired
Always seem to be no fleet around and when you ask for help you get told to deal with it

It’s the worst company I’ve worked for wouldn’t recommend this company to anyone
Pros
Your joking right ?

Job was in the UK at Budget Rent a Car. Started as a contractor and became a permanent employee. Tried to move to a better role at Avis (in the same building) but my application was blocked by management. Apart from that, an enjoyable place to work.

excellent team
Senior Rental Sales Agent (Former Employee) –  Coventry18 January 2018
had an excellent team spirit, no 2 days were the same. Avis looked after their staff. the only issue was working up the ladder unless you relocated, which wasn't ideal with a family.
Pros
excellent team
Cons
no cars

Good place to gain skills
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Bristol2 January 2018
Considering short-staff everyday and not employing new people, it makes the job very busy and you have to cover all the positions in a branch where you deal with loads of different tasks which it can be frustrating if there is no one to lead you or when you are not entitled to lead but overall I took it as an advantage and I learned so many new things that I never expected to, it`s good place to discover your skills and realise that will never end. Every day it is different, people are friendly and support you.The most enjoyable thing it is that you challenge yourself on every step and want more and more.
Pros
Good discount on rent cars, office parties, gain loads of skills.
Cons
Late hours working, not payed overtime during the week, lieu hours that you will never be able to take them, not the best management.

The great thing about Avis is that they have a great environment where you will be motivated however sometimes the environment can become high pressured and factors that you have no control over can and will upset your clientele.
Pros

Cons
Long hours
