    Pros

    The people are alright,

    Cons

    Abuse from Hertz, Overworked & WAY Underpaid, Time off is in 2 buckets, no significant perks, Frequent Turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone should be making about $2 - $3 more, there is way too much turnover & something needs to be done about that, We should have the option to move 40 vacation hours to the next year like before. I really hope that John Tague (Current CEO Hertz-Dollar/Thrifty) can turn this company around.

    Pros

    Easy job, you don't really do anything at all.

    Cons

    They have two employees working a 6 am to midnight counter, never have any cars, and on top of that they started paying me a dollar less that the original pay I signed my contract for, (took me 2 months to fix), and after giving me my dollar back, said they made a mistake and I should've been making less so I cannot get a annual raise as promised for two years..... horrible employee treatment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually care about your employees and maybe the turnover rate wouldn't be through the roof. Don't only make one employee work 6 nights a week until midnight. No work life balance.

    I worked at Dollar Thrifty Automotive part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked here for the time I was in college, they worked with my schedule. I could have probably had limited advancement but really it was a college job.

    Cons

    Time off policies, I tried to get time off to go and meet with my then future in-laws over Christmas. The managers would not let me have Christmas off, I had been with the company for three years so it was not a seniority issue, like a grade school drug education program they just said no. At some point somebody stole a GPS unit while I was working for them and they blamed me so I had to fill out a Security Breach form. The GPS showed up two months later, another employee had stolen it and felt guilty, the managers would not take the security breach off of my record. The managers kept me just under the minimum to not provide me with benefits but would have me train all the new employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give time off over Holidays, don't make everyone feel worthless. Trust your employees, and when and if something like a GPS shows up that keeps a record of where it has been look at the record and if you have wrongly mad someone sign paperwork, fix the issue, fix it like it was you who had been wronged.

    Pros

    IT management was solid with a good strategic plan

    Cons

    Terrible outsourcing policies. They laid off their whole internal IT staff and vended the work out. When the plan didn't work they trickled the work back in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Marketing strategies are unrealistic.

    Pros

    Excellent training program for entrylevel rental sales. Opportunity for advancement. Must build seniority through longevity, policies and procedures according to contract.

    Cons

    earning commission during slow times and local renterers, keeping up with rental commission period start and stop days, base pay at 10.00 to star, hours change every 6 months based on seniority bid process, .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Povide proper guidance during peak periods so that employees know what to expect during slow times. Allow flexibility in assignments.
