    Pros

    Hertz is a fast-paced and dynamic work environment that provides many unique opportunities in sales, customer service and interpersonal communication.

    Hertz will challenge you to be more confident, to believe in what you say and do, to always act with integrity, to sympathize and empathize at a deeper level, to solve unique problems with unique solutions and to always look for ways to improve yourself and your circle of influence.

    Offering competitive benefits and exclusive travel perks to employees and those closest to them, Hertz adequately compensates the typical worker; however, for the committed, ambitious and determined person, Hertz rewards generously and consistently with promotions, store and area-wide sales and service incentives and individual performance-based commission.

    A job at Hertz is anything but boring, and on the slower days, there are plenty of training courses and opportunities to network and further your professional expertise.

    Cons

    High-level stress in some cases, frequently changing workplace/coworkers, complex computer systems take time to learn, corporate procurement/location development is extremely tedious, customer complaints/rejection can be expected regularly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to relax, be genuine and find where the pieces for best...forcing things rarely leads to long term success

    I have been working at Hertz full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This company is giving me the opportunity to move into a management position in a shorter time frame then I thought. I was previously working for another globally known company that was founded on the principle of promoting within. However, when I applied to various supervisory positions, I realized the politics I had to overcome.

    Cons

    Lack of flexibility in the schedule can be a bit challenging especially being a single parent with a small child

    Time-Management skills are tested. fast pace environment is not for everyone.
