Avis Budgethiring scam - hires during peak season deceptive to employees

Potential employees need to be made aware of avis budget group's ridiculous hiring scam. Avis will hire people during their PEAK seasons...they will go through this huge MASS HIRING of people, and hire and hire. They are a really deceptive company- they make employees feel as if they are on probation and upon succsesful sales goals and coming to work and being a good employee they will pass probation and be a permanent employee. They make it seem as if this is an actual reality for them when the truth is, they MOSTLY hire people JUST for peak season and it's only temporary employment. They don't tell people that they most likely will end up getting fired or laid off and many times with NO good reason, for there is no standard by which avis budget group will hire or fire people. They will keep lazy bad employees, or even very bad people, bad sales people and just some of the worst employees you can imagine, and get rid of good employees too. they will keep BAD sales reps, people who hate to sell, and people who dont even want to be there and fire good employees who really wanted to work there. EVerything avis seems to do is backwards twisted and weird, and they have NO ethics at all or standards. There is no standard by which they hire or fire, and they will get RID of hired employees BEFORE THEIR 90 DAYS IS UP.

The problem with the company is that they extensively train people, and put them through this huge training only to fire them when their peak season is up, before 90 days, and they are left with way too many employees and have to let people go home they are so overstaffed. It's a really shady bad company the way they do these practices and run very poorly. Lying to, deceiving and scamming employees and customers seem to be the forte of this company. They apparently lie to and deceive EVERYONE they can, not just the customers. They teach their sales reps to lie and worse, they reward shady tactics and bad sales reps, liars cheaters, and punish good harder workers. I witnessed good hard workers let go, while they are proud to have scam artists, and even aggressive crazy people working there who are bullies who bully others stay and continue with their bad tactics. They reward bullies, bad sales reps who are bullies, and abuse of employees.

Most potential employees have NO CLUE they are just being "USED" basically by this company for up till 90 days and then will be LET GO before their benefits start. Avis will try to make up ANY erroneous reason just to let people go once they no longer have any use for them. This is important for people to know as if some of us had known this we wouldn't have even started with the company- basically they make you think you aer starting a career with them when that is NOT the case, you will waste 3 months of your life working for this company and also working like a slave, because while you aer on will be used like a tool. They put fear in new hires to do well during probation...out of the expectation they will get hired permanently so the poor new hires, will struggle, come to work every single day..on time..even come to work while sick, ill, anything...get used by the managers AND other employees who bully them...the NEW HIRES will be forced to take ALL the customesr by the other employees who are bullies and jerks. The regular employees will mistreat the new hires, abuse them or even yell at them and make them take customers while the "regular" permanent employees sit in the back and chat like the lazy idiots they are. This is just a corrupt company run by VERY corrupt unethical people. There are NO ETHICS at the company whatsoever... even MANAGERS will bully new hires and mistreat them and even make new hires run back and forth working hard slaving away. The new hires TAKE thsi absue thinking, they are on probation and have no choice so they take advantage of these people. It's a really disgusting place to work full of corruption bad managers, the worst managers and really bad employees.

The company Avis likes to reward the bad employees, the cheaters the liars and managers turn away from their bad practices, while new hires get mistreated or lied about. Worse, new hires who are forced to take customer after customer, yet if they stand back to not take a customer they will get YELLED at...while the regular employees are sitting in the back chatting. Avis is full of BULLIES and very bad people. There are sales reps who yell at and mistreat the new hires or other employees and nothing is done about it. There are lies being told bad one cares. But worse, avis USES new employees terribly, makes them feel that if they work hard during probation, take all the abuse, come to work everyday they will be permanent employees...NOT the case. You could be the best employee and avis will still get rid of you and it seems if a person IS a great employee avis gets rid of them but if they are a bad person and very shady avis will keep them. Before the 90 days is up avis WILL get rid of MANY people and for no reason at all and there is no standard by which avis keeps people-- the company has NO ethics or standards unfortunately. So there could be an honest wonderful employee who is great with customers and avis boots them, and i witnessed the WORST shadiest sales reps...bad people who lie to customers cheat them-- they call in sick-- avis keeps these people. So just remmeber that if you get hired by avis DURING their peak season mass hiring watch out...because you are just benig used and even if you work hard and take ALL their abuse and will STILL get let go, while joe schmoe ### employee will remain there. this is honestly why avis is such a bad company-- they hire and keep only the most dishonest unethical people ever...also the permanent employees will call in sick WHENEVER they want and this is OK with avis. They call in sick to keep their sales numbers up which is ridiculous...and avis allows this. However, the poor people on probation who call in sick get chastized...and many have been known to come in sick while havign broken bones, being very sick. Some ridiculous employees will tell the avis new hires to even stay at work if they are deathly sick...and again for what reason? so avis will end up letting them go at the end... if you want to talk about a really [censored] company, this is it. I witnessed many employees come to work EVERYDAY work super hard, come while VERY sick...(while others called in sick for no reason), and still get fired for NO reason. this is a terrible corrupt company beware...peak season is a bad idea to get hired onto because you get used like slaves by avis, ABUSED to no end and then FIRED just before your 90 days is up...avis are USERS ABUSERS beware...!!
