    Advancement opportunities abound

    Branch Manager (Current Employee) Sanford, FL

    ProsIt is a fast-paced environment where key metrics are tracked. If you are a hard worker and great performer you will move up quickly. I became a Branch Manager in less than 2 years!
    Everything is based on how much you put into it.

    ConsLong hours and dealing with difficult customers is a reality but if you are not able to handle that than this wasn't for you to start.

    Hertz is a great company

    Branch Manager (Current Employee) Sarasota, FL

    ProsHertz is a great place to work. Its a huge corporation with an unlimited potential to grow and be promoted. Hertz is a place where when you work hard you truly see the results. The atmosphere in every office I have been has been outstanding. From the front line managers to the very top, information and ideas are shared and acknowledged all the way to the lowest levels.

    ConsBeing such a large company, it can sometimes be easy to get lost in the shuffle. As long as you stand out, i.e. sales and management skills, you can easily stand out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to grow in every category. This will allow for more promotions at each level of our business.

    My Experience with Hertz

    Branch Manager Trainee (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsHertz is a great company to work for. I have been here just over 6 months and I have nothing bad to say about my time so far with the company. At the entry level position you start with a better base pay than most companies, and you are given all the tools to succeed. The environment Hertz has at its locations makes it very easy to work with one another, in a very team oriented atmosphere. Management knows who you are, and checks in with you to see if there are any concerns you may have that they can help out. All around it has been a great experience and I would recommend joining the Hertz team.

    ConsIt is hard to make everyone happy no matter how hard you try, but that is just the nature of a customer service based industry.

    ProsHertz has an excellent management training program that helps you get your career started. They give you many opportunities to get promoted and are very motivated to see their employees succeed. As an employee, you get a lot of experience in marketing, sales, and management. The starting pay is solid and there are more than enough opportunities for bonuses.

    ConsSome challenges are that the job can get pretty busy and a little stressfull at times, but what job isn't. As long as you are doing your job correctly, are competent and motivated, upper management will notice you and there's a good chance you'll have a long successful career.
