    Pros

    Good experience in sales and customer service
    good resume builder
    Good multi tasking skills

    Cons

    Where to begin...
    Low pay and no cost of living raises. I worked there for about 6 years and was only making 12 dollars per hour as an assistant manager! No raises or promotions in over 3.5 years...
    I was held back from my area manager when applying for manager positions. I helped train and promote people who became my manager!
    Long hours and have to wear nice dress clothes when washing cars
    no schedule. Did not know when i worked until 6pm the day before!
    I was one of the top sales people and still usually didnt make more than $400 in commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people better and seniority should mean something. Thats why such a high turnover.

    I worked at Hertz full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    While working for Hertz I was really given a lot of training which I truly believe will help me throughout the rest of my career. The benefits were good, the pay was alright, and the all of the people I worked with were very competent and friendly. There is room for promotion and assuming you meet your sales quota's and aren't completely stupid, they will recognize it and reward you accordingly.

    Cons

    This is a sales job though they try to mask it pretty well. If you do not meet your quota on additional sales revenue per day (SRPD) for 3 months consecutively you will be terminated. That would have been nice to know up front instead of 2 weeks after working for the company, but oh well.

    Their is no work/life balance. You can expect to work 55+ hrs/week minimum needing to stay over at random. There were times my paychecks would have more overtime pay than regular pay. I would venture to say 75% of the Branch Manager's or Trainee's (and every title in-between) are very burnt out, and often seek other employment. This leads to an unbelievably accepted amount of turnover in employees every year, so don't expect to get too close to your co-worker you spend 12+hrs/day with.

    As is the case with any rental car company, you run very low on cars. Fleet is expensive in this industry and obviously you want to pay for as little as possible for it. However you typically still accept all online reservations and business even though the cars aren't there which creates a lot of understandably upset customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hertz is a good company and I do not regret my time working there at all. If I had to give one recommendation it would have to be that you need more staffing. A better work/life balance would create much less turnover in the very talented staff you have.
