Enterprise Rent-A-Car

What’s a career at Enterprise Rent-A-Car all about? Conducting business with integrity. Setting the bar for top-notch customer service. Working hard. And never forgetting to have a little fun.

Since we opened our doors more than 55 years ago with only seven cars in our fleet, we have stayed true to our founding values. Today we’re proud to be the world’s largest transportation service provider, with more than 1.7 million vehicles taking our customers wherever they need to go.

Operated by St. Louis-based Enterprise Holdings, we’re a family-owned and family-run company. We count Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental among our world-class portfolio of brands. Our global network spans across more than 70 countries, with more than 93,000 dedicated team members sharing common values.

Our future leaders start in our nationally-recognized Management Training Program, which is where our current President and CEO Pam Nicholson got her start. As a Management Trainee, you’ll learn what goes into managing a multimillion-dollar business, and how to exceed your customers’ expectations each and every day. The more you put into the program, the more you’ll get out of it. Because we promote from within, based on performance. Not seniority.

Our Management Interns hit the ground running. You’ll take on many of the same tasks as our Management Trainees and hone your entrepreneurial skills with this full-time, paid internship. We’re looking for ambitious, customer-focused, adaptable and fun-loving students. Why? Because that’s what working at Enterprise is all about. Our internship program is more than just a line on your resume. It’ll help you stand out from the crowd.

This is where it all starts. go.enterprise.com

MassMutual was founded on May 15, 1851. And from the beginning, we’ve had a single purpose: to help people secure their future and protect the ones they love. More than 160 years later, that commitment remains our guiding principle. It’s behind everything we do and every decision we make. It’s how we continue to deliver products and services to help our policy owners and customers achieve their financial goals, and protect those who matter most.

When you’re in your 20s, your financial goals are often different than those of someone in their 40s. Or their 60s. Each person might want a comfortable retirement but that means different things to different people. And there are other goals that can emerge along the way, from planning for a child’s education, to planning for or managing income in retirement. That’s why we offer a range of financial strategies and solutions to help you every step of the way. Whether it’s life insurance, an annuity, a retirement savings product like a 401(k) or one of our other offerings, we’ll work with you to gain confidence, and stay flexible and prepared for your financial future.
