    Washed cars in nice clothes low pay long hours. Didnt like working 12 hour days for such little pay

    Pros

    Great entry level, corporate, management experience. If willing to put in 12+ daily and come in days off, ability to learn six sigma and other project management certs. Hourly employees treated well.

    Cons

    Schedule. Will loose time off with the expectation that it will not be repayed. Long hours, upper management is not concerned about well being of lower and middle managers. Expected to fall in line, do as told, and push employees on bare bones staff to line the pockets of upper management and share holders.

    Advice to Management

    The economy is not as bad as it once was, thus your talented lower and middle managers will not stick around. Bottom line will suffer with the revolving door of lower and middle management.

    I worked at Hertz full-time

    Pros

    Compensation was decent in proportion to the required working hours.

    Cons

    Long hours with little to no breaks, abysmal communication between neighboring branches, high turnover rate, and a very short training process.

    Advice to Management

    Put more focus on the customer instead of the bottom line. The company would retain more of their customer AND employees.
