    An ongoing experience that is sure to build into a lifetime commitment and journey.

    Manager Trainee (Current Employee) Freeport, NY

    ProsWhat I like best is that it is a fast paced environment that allows you to learn and grow in multiple types of situations. It keeps you on your toes and its a great way to meet people like yourself who may value the same things as you. Also a very competitive company

    ConsAlthough there are long hours, it allows you to learn more a lot quicker. Being that it is fast paced there may be a challenging aspect in that everything can be happening at one time. But on the other hand, if nothing was happening, then what type of business are you running?

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep pushing and striving for better with the Hertz Corporation

    Growth and Success

    Manager (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsHertz has provided the ability for employees to move through the company quickly. There are also different areas of growth and career progression through out the company. Hertz allows you to manage your own business and sets you up for success. There are classes offered by the company to learn different techniques to engage employees and grow the business. I enjoy going it to work everyday because of the different opportunities offered to me.

    ConsThe hours can be long depending on the season, but the way I see it is you gotta work hard to play hard.

    Love the quality of vehicles

    Manager (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsI love the work atmosphere at the management level. Everyone is happy all the time and is pleased to be at work. This is a challenging job with unlimited potential to move up at your own pace. The hours are great, the pay is good, especially the bonuses. Training is a great tool before you get thrown into the fire and Hertz provides that.

    ConsThere is a lot of work thrown at you. You must be able to delegate and have time management and organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrowing at such a fast pace in the industry their needs to be constant interviews, not only when needed.

    Hertz: Great for your personal and career growth.

    Manager Associate (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsHertz is a great company for personal and career growth. They have a great program called Fast Track, which helps develop and prepare future managers. Once you become a manager you get your own company car. The great thing about this is that they pay for your gas expense as well as your car insurance expense. The sales aspect of the job is one of the most rewarding that I have experience. Hertz does a great job at recognizing individual performance with monetary bonuses. Hertz also gives their employees great benefits, such as health insurance. The other great benefits that come with working with such an elite company is the great discounts you receive renting a car, not only for yourself, but for your friends and family. I would definitely recommend everyone to join this great company.

    ConsLong hours, but the overtime pay is worth it.
    Cleaning cars in the heat, but they now have new uniforms which makes this task more comfortable to perform.
    Some locations are operated by one person, which can make some days challenging.

    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.

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