Pros

There is fairly consistent turnover at Hertz in the middle management roles so promotions are a distinct possibility for strong performers. The promotion process is open and fair- all candidates go through the same kind of screening. The Hertz brand is incredibly strong in the Corporate arena which makes it an easier pitch to travel managers looking for corporate programs. Training was offered both in person and on line for a variety of subjects for all employees to take advantage of. Benefits were good- 3 weeks vacation at year 5.

Cons

Being a global company, it is sometimes difficult to get consistency across every rental location which can lead to service issues. The communication between brands (Hertz rental, Hertz Equipment) was not strong.

Advice to Management

Let people know internally when and why people leave the company (if appropriate). It was always a big secret and left room for speculation.

    Pros

    Opportunity to see how the rental market works. Learn face to face communication w/ people....just like most other job.

    Cons

    Management training program that doesn't move you up due to senior management agenda. They come first before their fellow employees.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Don't see them as another face in the crowd. Show them they are Valued in the company.

    You will work very hard only to receive an extremely low compensation and be asked to do even more with little resources

    Pros

    You will gain valuable management experience. Adequate vacation time, sick days and floating holidays allotted.

    Cons

    Terrible pay Long Hours The customer is always right even if it violates Hertz policy. No horizontal movement. You will be stuck in a management role forever. High Turnover Bad Logistics for receiving cars when you are in a busy location. bad bonus structure

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more. They work very hard and the management experience is valuable. But there is no recognition and even as a branch manager you still may barely make 40k a year. People don't hate the job, they hate how the job treats them.
