^pay more for luxury class upgrades, that's how

Typically I opt for the jeep or dodge suvs in the exec aisle - don't want a mouthful from a client

I always get the premium ones, just need to ask nicely and slip a few here and there

I got a free upgrade to a BMW 4 series convertible a few weeks back, engagement mgr was not happy but partner loved it so I was clear. Prob wouldn't do it again though

In terms of "how" to get the upgrade, it's usually when they are low on cars and need to bring extras out to the emerald aisle, at which point they might need to pull some BMW's/Audis/Cadillacs. I don't think you'll ever have a National employee upgrade you

How much more does National typically charge if you were to take that upgrade for an Audi or BMW? $20/day?

They usually have the hang tag on the mirror if not it's a free upgrade

What are good questions to ask in an interview in order to assess organizational culture? This is very important to me and I can’t figure out a way to get an honest answer. Most recent job I interviewed the manager and he seemed great and painted a favorable picture of the work environment. Once I took the job I quickly realized that there were two toxic people who colluded with each other to drive new people away. They had already gotten two people to quit before me.

Hey everyone, I've searched for this in the bowl but wanted to start a new discussion. Recently moved in to the city and need to invest in a winter coat.

Should I go for an actual coat or must it be a jacket? Appreciate any advice on this!
