ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – Enterprise Holdings says that of the 11,000 full-time employees it plans to hire by the middle of next year at least a few hundred will be in St. Louis.

A company spokeswoman told KMOX Wednesday that the rental car company plans to hire positions in information technology, administration and support roles at its headquarters in suburban St. Louis.

Enterprise also plans on hiring nearly 8,500 for management trainee positions, including many recent college graduates, across the U.S. and some in Canada and Europe.

In addition to the full-time jobs, Enterprise plans to hire 1,500 interns. Typically, about half of its interns eventually become full-time employees, company officials said.

Enterprise Holdings operates Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental. It is one of the nation’s largest private companies. Its overall fleet includes 1.3 million vehicles at 8,200 rental stores.
