One Word to Describe Enterprise: Culture

Hello!

I’m Jamilah S. a Staff Sargent in the U.S. Army Reserve and Management Trainee at Enterprise inHawthorne/Lawndale, CA.

I received the warmest welcome to Enterprise’s organizational values, norms, vision, systems, symbols, beliefs, habits, and working language. Culture is all about how you perceive and receive it; it is the vehicle through which we coordinate activities and reach common goals and expectations. Enterprise handed me the keys and allowed me and my colleagues to be the drivers of our own destiny. This is the Enterprise culture.

rookieSenior Account Executive Francois Jean-Baptiste graduated college in 2006, and — when he couldn’t find a job in his chosen field of accounting — took a sales position at a cell phone company.

“I realized I was surprisingly good at sales,” Francois says. “But after a few years, I wanted to find a sales job with a company that provided more opportunities for growth. A friend of mine suggested I look into Enterprise’s Management Training Program.”

Francois followed that advice and started as a Management Trainee in Lyndhurst, N.J., in early 2011. A year later, he was able to take the MQI — an exam that all MTs must pass before moving up the ranks —he passed with flying colors.

A few months later, while Francois served as the Assistant Manager in Summit, N.J., the Area Car Sales Manager came to visit him and gauge his interest in a career with Enterprise Car Sales.
