Key Takeaways


So what is Enterprise Rent-A-Car? 
Enterprise Rent-A-Car is an extended family of 64,000; a world-class company with homegrown roots. Through tremendous leadership and the entrepreneurial spirit of our employees, we've built the largest rental car company in North America — customer by customer, car by car from the ground up. But our goal has never been to be the biggest; we simply work hard to be the best. 

Unlike our competitors, we have always operated through an extensive network of local, neighborhood offices, each powered by the energy of a small, highly entrepreneurial team. The concept grew from humble beginnings: the basement of a St. Louis car dealership with a small team of bright, ambitious colleagues fielding phone calls, calculating rates and building relationships.  

As we built our company, one neighborhood at a time over the years, we also built strong relationships with the people who call those communities home, and it is because of those relationships that we have achieved unprecedented growth. 

Today, Enterprise operates more than 850,000 Rental and Fleet Services vehicles worldwide and has annual revenues of $9 billion. Last year, we opened more than 400 new locations, increasing our total locations to more than 6,900 in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Germany. The company is currently ranked number 16 on the Forbes “Largest Private Companies in America” list and ranked number 5 as a “Best Place to Launch a Career” by BusinessWeek magazine.

Why work for Enterprise Rent-A-Car?
Everyday isn’t so much like a workday as it is an MBA crash course.  At Enterprise, you’ll gain valuable and highly marketable skills in every aspect of business management from sales and marketing and developing a staff to customer service and accounting.  Yet, we’re not all business all the time.  Enterprise is also a tight knit culture, where great people really enjoy each other’s company both in and outside of work.

Regardless of college major or professional experience, nearly 100% of our employees start out in our Management Training Program allowing everyone to learn the business from the ground up.  As you progress, increasingly more opportunities will become available.
