Come into the internship with an open mind and be ready for hard work and 11 hours days. Everyone starts where you do and by the end you learn so much about how to run a Bussiness.

Sales Intern

May - August 2019 • Hilliard, OH

What I liked

I enjoyed how I was a part of the team. I expected as an Intern to be doing more behind the scenes work but I was working with all the full-time employees. All the employees were very open to answering any questions that I had and wanted to see me succeed. The manager continually took me aside to make sure I was enjoying my summer and offer any additional training on areas where I was struggling. There were also a lot of outside of work get togethers which was a nice way to get to know the people I was working with outside of the office. There were also a lot of trainings with the other interns that gave us an overview of the business as a whole. I really enjoyed meeting people who have been well established in the company such as area mangers, branch mangers, and other higher-ups in the company to help build connections.

What I wish was different

There was not a lot I would change about this internship because they understand I was a student and gave shorter work days from 8-5 rather than the usual 7-6/7 shifts. As an intern I also didn't have to work on weekends because they wanted us to enjoy our summers.

Advice

Don't be afriad to ask questions and get involved as possible from the start. Everyone I worked witth was extremly helpful throughout the summer and I am still in contact with some of the people I worked with including the branch manager and some of the interns I worked with.

Management Trainee Intern

May - August 2019 • Provo, UT

What I liked

I loved how Enterprise trusted interns with tasks and assignments right from the start. I felt like my work was being valued and I was a true member of the team. Going to work each day was fun because of the great people I got to work with each day in the office. I learned about sales, marketing, management, and customer service all in one internship. Enterprise Holdings will invest a lot of time and energy into your development.

What I wish was different

I wanted to see more of the financial side of how the branch was doing. I wanted to see why decisions were being made based on the data that was gathered.

Advice

Don't think that Enterprise Holdings is only a rental car company. You will quickly learn that there are a lot of different avenues that you can take within the company and have a strong ability to succeed in the Management Trainee Program. Take a chance on this great company, and you will see it was worth the investment.

Management Intern

June - August 2019 • Fairfield, CT

What I liked

Really good hands on training program. They care about their employees learning the ins and outs of the company. They also only promote from within, everyone must start as a Management Trainee, they rank you on a matrix by position so all interns in my region were ranked every month based on performance individually and as a team.

What I wish was different

I wish I was able to have more assigned tasks, my job was pretty routine and mundane from day to day.

Advice

Whatever you put into it is what you will get out. I found myself slacking on the matrix in the first month then I really gave it 110% and ended up finishing in the top 5 from the summer interns.

Customer Service Representative

May - August 2019 • Spokane, WA

What I liked

The work environment was very positive. Enterprise strives to go above and beyond to give customers and employees the best experience possible.

What I wish was different

I wish I had had slightly more sales training. A large portion of this job was trying to generate more revenue for the company through upgrades and up-sells, and I would have benefitted from learning more about the best tactics to do so.

Advice

If this opportunity presents itself to you, take it! You will gain wonderful customer service experience, sales experience, and be able to have a very highly-regarded company on your resume.

Management Trainee Intern

May - September 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I loved that I was treated like a real employee. They really invested their time and into training. We knew what we were talking about. You get a "Branch Buddy" and I loved mine! My branch buddy was the Assistant Branch Manager and I learned so much from him. Upper Management is also so hands on! We knew the Regional Vice President, he was so kind and friendly and was an available resource! My Area Manager was amazing too! (This is the person who is responsible for a group of Branches in one area) He was always available to answer questions and was hands on in the branch. He would do the same job I was doing; helping a customer, answering a phone, helping to clean a car. He would help us, it didn't matter that he was upper management. My Branch Manager was BEYOND amazing! I still keep in touch with him. In this job, you meet so many different people. I loved my summer internship. ENTERPRISE INVESTS IN THEIR EMPLOYEES!!!

What I wish was different

Nothing! I liked the whole experience. There are long hours, but they flew by.

Advice

Don't be afraid to have some fun! My branch had some truly amazing workers and we would joke around with each other during down time (when there weren't customers in the branch). It was truly an amazing experience!

The ability to gain a multitude of experiences. I loved not being trapped in an office.

Hard work pays off!

Car Rental Agent

June - August 2019 • Reno, NV

What I liked

Coworkers were very helpful; each and every single one helped me during training, even if they were from another booth. Managers were very nice and chill. I was able to double my pay check at one point because of the money I earned from upgrades and extra services (I.e prepay for gas; add Sirius xm, etc)

What I wish was different

More help on my first night shift and having a little more training on the online program used (Odyssey)

Advice

This is a great opportunity to develop customer service skills and work in a (VERY) fast paced environment. Get ready to walk a lot from the car wash to the garage.

Management Trainee

May - August 2019 • Blue Springs, MO

What I liked

Fun and fast paced environment. Employees all want each other to succeed.

What I wish was different

I wish they had been flexible with the start time since BYU gets out so much earlier, but I had to wait a month before starting after school got out.

Advice

The hours seem impossible (7-6:30) but once you work it for a few weeks, it becomes habit and you’ll be fine!

Sales Management Intern

May - August 2019 • Boston, MA

What I liked

This internship was incredibly hands-on and rewarding! I was able to learn something new every single day and build my sales skillset. Additionally, my co-workers were extremely friendly and provided help whenever it was needed.

What I wish was different

We were required to work on the weekends, which wasn't specified in the job description.

Advice

This internship is all about being "thrown into the pool, and learning how to swim". You need to be very open-minded and determined to thrive in this role. I think this is a great internship and it is very rewarding if you are willing to put in the work.

Management Trainee Intern

June - August 2019 • Fairfax, VA

What I liked

I loved the face-to-face customer service aspect of the job. The job training was rigorous and informative and taught me a lot about sales and customer relationship management. I was able to shadow top executives and understand the business.

What I wish was different

The hours started very early which was hard to get used to.

Advice

Apply anywhere and take all the interviews that you can. I was not expecting to be so interested in a rental-car internship, however, I took the interview and it ended up being a great experience.

Management Trainee intern

May - August 2019 • Allentown, PA

Advice

You must be ready for the hours that you will work. The days could be quite long.

Senior Customer Assistance Representative

May - October 2019 • Hanover, MD

What I liked

Enterprise Holdings is an amazing company that gives you the opportunity to grow and start forming a future for yourself. They don't only take business majors because they really look for people with sales experience or experience working on a team. Most of my coworkers had been college athletes so they were competitive when it came to sales but they were dedicated to teamwork. Almost all my coworkers were Management Trainees or Management Assistants which are jobs people can get at the company when they come out of college. So I really got to see firsthand what it would be like working at Enterprise after college, and I also really got to see how management works. Also, Enterprise is a company that is a big about hiring within so I felt immensely supported by my coworkers and management, especially when everyone encouraged me to apply for internship at the company.

What I wish was different

The only thing I can say is that I wish my position could have been considered an internship. They only take on rising seniors as interns and I was a rising junior. This is the reason I had the seasonal role of a Senior Customer Assistance Representative (SCAR) instead of an intern. If I had been allowed to intern I would have been able to complete my internship requirement instead of waiting another year. Even so, I'm not upset I get to go back to the company next summer.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions and ask for feedback. Over the course of a couple months my coworkers and management started to feel like real friends and supporters. Managers are always willing to sit down and figure out how you can improve sales or what is or isn't working for you.

Management Trainee - Intern

May - August 2019 • Grapevine, TX

What I liked

I loved everything about my internship with Enterprise! The work environment was fast-paced with some of the best staff you could ask for. Everyone is routing for each other and helping each other move up in their careers with the company. Overall a wonderful experience.

What I wish was different

I wish that the computer software had been a little different. Learning the software and understanding how it navigate it was a problem for me in the beginning but like everything, it just takes a little practice.

Advice

Never be afraid to ask questions. Asking questions could be the make or break point for many interns because of the amount of information that you need to learn in such a short time. Asking questions is the best way to learn the quickest and become the best.

Management Trainee Intern

May 2019 • Lubbock, TX

What I liked

I love the in-depth learning experience on what it's like to run my own branch. There are also tons of opportunities beyond daily rental to look forward to, and the team environment is very uplifting and encouraging. The interns all divided into teams and worked on a cool video project based on our founding values.

What I wish was different

I wish I had a little more in-depth training on how to confront sticky situations, but I'm learning as I go!

Advice

Have some work experience, even if it's just waiting tables! The interpersonal experience you get from these little jobs will give you a headstart in your career.
