Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management is so focused on the stock price they make short-term strategies that are detrimental to the long-term success. For example, a desicison not to replace termed employees to save money today but the reality is that affects customer service for months to come and years later accounts remember that at one point Hertz was understaffed, thus losing future success.

    Pros

    the pros to working for Hertz are that you get to drive cool cars and rent at reasonable prices when traveling. It's not a traditional office job, you get to be out and about building relationships with people. It's a great way to network. Work with great people and the benefits are good, earning potential due to bonuses are up to you.

    Cons

    Very long hours, the store is open 11 hours a day and has to be staffed full time dependng on the number of employees and the number of satilite offices you have this can be challenging. Pressure to sell even when you're doing your best month after month one bad month and they jump all over you the standards are high but resources to meet the needs are low. not enough time for professional development or crosstraining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recomend making more time for professional development, hold in person classes and seminars that people can go to improve themselves and give back to the community participate in community service and provide opportunites for employees to interact all over the city not just at their branch.

    Pros

    Free car and gas and insurance to managers

    Cons

    It sucks.. If I could do it again, I wouldve never taken this job. It makes me sad, depressed and the money is a joke. The hours kill you. The only good thing is the people they hire. Alot of nice people stuck in a horrible situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to how it was 5 years ago.
