    I worked at Dollar Thrifty Automotive full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility in some departments was awesome. Laid back atmosphere and business attire. Good community responsibility. Better pay than majority of the industry in some departments. No pay raises for 3 years until Hertz acquired them--then a whopping 3%.

    Cons

    Acquired by Hertz so small company atmosphere is gone. Benefits are too expensive! Stingy with their paid time off. No training or feedback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide feedback to your employees about the jobs they perform.

    Pros

    If you like working for dis-honest people, GSP is for you.

    Cons

    Working for dis-honest upper management and under educated corporate staff. GSP employees drivers which are paid $.32 cents a mile to move cars to different locations. It is unknown if these drivers have insurance protection. Salaried employees here work six days a week. The Vice President of this company recruits foreign employees to minimize payroll.

    Pros

    Management took time to listen to its employees under dtag.

    Cons

    Nothing really was an issue until hertz bought it...all downhill since.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None left, and the leadership at hertz will not listen nor do they care. Many good employees leaving under hertz now. Do not work for dollar thrifty and hertz now, they are doing their best to kill off what was a great brand with a proud culture at dtag, with hertz's questionable ethics and impossible upper management.
