    Pros

    Hertz is the largest rental car company in the world. Opportunity for growth is a big deal with Hertz. Upper management gives you the tools you need to grow as a manager. They also invest in personal growth as well. There are an abundant of management opportunities in operations and in other departments as well. Rather it be Sales, Human resources, recruiting or corporate training. Hertz also has a competitive culture amongst employees, which drives eye-popping results. Hertz allows you to run the business as if it was your own, and the monetary and career rewards are plentiful. After just graduating from college, where else can you make 6 figures 2 years into the job? I know of one place. Hertz.

    Cons

    Because Hertz is such a large company, large changes within the company do take some time. However the communication that is disseminated down from upper management is transparent, and extremely positive.

    Pros

    Hertz 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.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Hertz 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.

    Cons

    Long 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.

    Pros

    It 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.

    Cons

    Long 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.

    Pros

    Hertz 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.

    Cons

    Being 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Hertz 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.

    Cons

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