Nobody followed professional ethics.HR is more important to them than their employees. They have fired a lot of good employees already.literally harassment on employees.no respect. no values. a irresponsible leadership, the CEO spents much time on parties than working in the company.

I enjoy meeting various customers from various cultures and all different walks of life. With this skill I have managed to excel in pressure situations and keep a clear head always focusing on the end goal.

Some of the key skills that I have learned in this role:

Commitment to delivering outstanding customer service

Team working skills embracing a healthy spirit of competition

A sense of responsibility that relishes the occasional opportunity to be the sole point of contact for AVIS customers
Pros
Meeting and interacting with different people from all walks of life
Cons
Hourly wage

When a call comes through to drive sometimes we only have 15 or 20 minutes to reach the yard in town where the cars are and then we receive the keys and paperwork from one of the customer service agents. We then drive the cars to whichever destination we need to and are then picked up by another driver and driven back to our original starting point. Great views and each drive is different. Hard conditions in winter over the Alpine Pass but who doesn't enjoy a challenge.
Pros
Scenery
Cons
Winter driving

Hand over from previous shift employees, daily banking transactions to reconcile. Preparation of V.I.P. customer arrivals vehicles and keys. Customer service and completion of fuel reconciliation sheets during quiet times. Ensure office is clean in particular customer line of sight.
I learned more about pushing my sales targets as top sales agent in New Zealand, Australia, UK and USA in 2012 first quater of the year. I also learned how good I was and that I could exceed in anything. Management was an area I would have progressed further into as a career. I decided to complete my BA at university.
Pros
International networks with Avis and Budget
Cons
Shift work and flight delays meant longer shift into the morning, minimum wages, exploitation

Target was to make 300 calls to your creditors, allocated queries to the different departments eg (it there is an credit the department who does the credits will do it)

Bank Statements - mark your payments received and allocated to the department to allocated to the account.


It was stressfull to be the whole day on the phone and it was also enjoyable to speak to different people with different languages
Pros
You must break for lunch according to company policy
Cons
No overtime was aloud

They promise advancement, growth and fair treatment. When i was there, I found out growth is only available in big city locations, your growth is very limited (payrise offered after a few months service, was for less than the paper it was written on -literally) and fair treatment was for those with a bigger, better job title.
Lies are told, almost daily. Health and safety comes after making money. Mistakes are punished unfairly and excelling is ignored.

Long story short, I'd rather work at a supermarket than with this company ever again.
Pros
Driving the latest model vehicle
Cons
Everything else that comes with working here

Dealing with the public - especially overseas travellers - was really challenging, but I received a great sense of job satisfaction. Training staff was a highlight.
