    Former Employee - Manager Trainee in Knoxville, TN

    I worked at Hertz full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good coworkers at branch level, discounts on car rentals

    Cons

    Upper management, pay, too many hours, wearing shirt and tie everyday, bonus structure, advancement opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your branch level employees more and let them wear business casual clothing. Cleaning cars in snow and 110 degree heat in a suit is a bit tedious. I ruined about 4 Brooks Brothers ties.

    I have been working at Hertz full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You have an opportunity to test drive many different vehicle; Resume looks better just because of the brand. No one understands this industry until they walk- the- walk....which is a long walk to Branch Manager. If you make it from Manager Trainee to Branch Manager a personal car is yours to drive everyday, you never pay for gas.

    Cons

    You work an average 55-60 hours during peak season , then watch out they cut the hours big time even before the X-mas season. The hourly pay is not substainable & the job is really designed for someone that lives at home with their parents. You will wash alot of cars even in your nice clothes they want you to wear in front of the customer. The Quartly bonus is never consistant, it changes every 2-3 mths & you are subject to driving your gas out to work at another location if that location does not have a manager or more than one employee. Also the programs operates as slow as the hiring process; you cannot advance in one year to Branch Managers especially if your branch is understaffed like most of them are across the USA!!! Hertz officially screwed everyone at the bottom of the food chain, Manager Trainee, Assistant Branch Managers in Michigan did not get the 1st Quarterly bonus due to some Net Promotor Score which just became a new factor in 2012. Unfair work practices from a Global Company, the company was profitable but the wages at the bottom remain unsatisfactory. If the company keeps changes the policies for the quarterly bonus program you are left with just $10.50 & tell me who can pay their monthly expenses on just that alone?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the compensation for the program-who can support themselves on $10.50? Really, some of us have BBA...the program is a fraud since the off-airport stores are 85% understaffed most of the year. The recruiters talk a good game but the program needs re-structuring in advancement & compensation for true professionals. Worst company I have ever worked for 2011-2012.
