We recently spoke to Branch Manager Eric C. who manages an Enterprise branch in Canoga Park, California. One of Eric’s customers wrote to Enterprise to express her appreciation for Eric, who went above and beyond the call of duty during her recent rental.
We recently spoke to Enterprise Management Trainee Audriana G., who works at Albuquerque’s Sunport airport in New Mexico regarding her outstanding customer service. Audriana turned an everyday encounter into a memorable experience for a frequent renter—impressing the customer to the point that she wrote a letter to Chief Executive Officer Pam Nicholson, commending Audriana’s efforts.
Summer interns in the Southwest region were asked to participate in a project to show how they have grown during their time at Enterprise. Each intern was asked to think of two hashtags: one explaining why they came to Enterprise, and one about what they’ve learned so far. Then, they each provided a short explanation for their choices.
At Enterprise I’ve learned the importance of building great customer relationships. Because we are always going above and beyond for every customer we have a lot of regular renters who I love to help. In return these great relationships have helped us grow our store’s fleet of cars and I’m extremely proud to be a part of our growth!!!
“There’s never a boring day here at the Medford Enterprise. From meeting new customers daily, developing my sales skills, and getting to know my co-workers I cannot think of a better place to get the best professional experience.
“So far my internship has been amazing, I could not have asked for a better office to work in. My manager and the management trainees in the office have taught me so much in the short amount of time that I have been with the company. The eight founding values of Enterprise have helped drive me to be more successful every day.
I have been employed with Enterprise for a little over a year and now I am on the rental side of the company and have already learned so much about how the company operates.
Long before the Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee State upset Michigan State in the Big Dance this spring, recent MTSU grad William S. had his heart set on pursuing a career as an athletic director. Until he suited up as a Management Intern at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, that is.
“It was life-changing,” William says. “Once I got into the business at Enterprise, I knew this is where I wanted to be long term.” Since December, he’s been chalking up the early wins of his career as a full-time Management Trainee in the Tennessee Group.
When Erin G. joined the Enterprise Management Training Program in 2004 in Cleveland, she had no idea how far her career would take her. With a strong work ethic and eagerness to always take on more, she quickly excelled and made her way up the rental ranks at some of the largest neighborhood branches in the Cleveland area.
But Erin didn’t stop there. She set her sights on a new challenge – an airport branch.
Each year, more than 1,500 college students suit up for the Management Training Internship program at Enterprise. Whether they’re fulfilling a prerequisite or pursuing entrepreneurial dreams, interns gain real-life experience, which paves the way for plentiful opportunities.
Seeing the potential
It wasn’t all that long ago that Tara K. — now Assistant Vice President of Manufacturer and Dealership Business Development — found herself looking for hands-on training. As a senior at New York’s Siena College, Tara had been searching for an internship for a marketing class. Had it not been for the Talent Acquisition Specialists visiting on the first day of classes to help with mock interviews, Tara’s career path might have taken a different course.
“The Enterprise employee I spoke with during that first day of marketing class said she had two intern positions open if I wanted to apply,” Tara recalls. “Initially, I wasn’t sure where an internship with a rental car company would take me, but the more I learned, the more excited I became about the possibilities.”
