    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTraining, co-workers. opportunity for advancement

    It's not the same company anymore.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat before the Hertz merger

    ConsThe merger is causing alot more customer service issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop holding conference calls and looking at numbers behind a desk and get in the operation to see what is going on.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Hopeful

    Training Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsThe group of people working in my area are amazing! There is a family sense of teamwork and working towards a similar goal. Having a vehicle as part of my compensation package is definitely a huge plus!! My job requires frequent travel and I enjoy getting to know employees throughout the US and Canada.
    The Hertz/DTAG merger brings various opportunities for the motivated professional who is passionate about their work. It will be nice working for a global industry leader with the resources to position the brands effectively.

    ConsUnfortunately, there is an unequitable trend at DTAG. Director level positions are usually granted to those who are in the "good ol boys" club (this includes women). It becomes concerning when your supervisor does not understand the fundementals of your department. I see this in various areas. However, I am hopeful that the Hertz team will select qualified and professional people to lead our new company.
    Next, my team has not received a pay increase or performance review in over 5 years. This is extremely discouraging. As a member of the HR team, I would have thought our department valued the importance of performance feedback.
    The message from upper level management is not consistent when it comes to communication.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease develop your director level staff to professionally manage a team. This includes communication, strategic thinking, leadership skills and development planning.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Hire, Train, Burn-out, Leave!

    Retail Sales Agent (Former Employee)
    Tucson, AZ

    ProsTeam was excellent to work with, Some managers more helpful than others. City Manager has little interaction with sales staff unless something is wrong and you're summoned to the vice-principals office for a reprimand. Fair to middling training experience. Computer systems seem fairly up to date and user friendly.

    ConsUnderstaffed at key locations and times giving you little time to meet and greet your prospects to identify their needs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWith the recent merger I would be updating my perspective resumes. Seems to be a duplication of services.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It was a job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    ProsHad a competitive bonus program. Always something new to do and your always meeting someone new as well everyday of the of the week.

    ConsManagement was always changing their mind on how things should be done. Huge turn over and the bonus plan was really hard to get in terms of qualifications

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Revenue vs. Cost - Misdirected

    Vice President (Current Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    ProsThe people really do care and are willing to go the extra mile and to sacrifice for the greater good of the company.

    ConsThere are alot of what appears to be knee-jerk reactions to issues and changing business conditions. This is evident to the employee group as a whole and causes concern and lack of faith in senior management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to get off the cost issues. This is ingrained in the culture. What is needed is that same amount of focus on revenue generation. That is where we fail miserably.

    It's a job. Nothing more, nothing less. Communications within this facility are less than favorable

    Fleet Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsSite manager is experienced and cares about his staff. Deadwood being weeded out, although their is an imbalance in managers accountability in some instances. If you are a hard worker and get results, management lets you do your thing.

    ConsPay is under industry standards. Bonus plan is not balanced with individual results. Antiquated systems. Office equipment is from the 80s!
