    Pros

    -good discount on cars
    -weekly paychecks

    Cons

    -big paychecks are because you will be doing so much overtime (nights, weekends AND holidays) you no longer have a life, way too much mandatory overtime, you'll be lucky if you get a day off every 2-3 weeks
    -management really doesn't care about employees
    -communication between management and employees is terrible
    -training was not long enough or thorough enough, management had senior employees train new hires, then expected new hires to turn around and immediately train other new hires in same week
    -employees spend too much time gossiping and sabotaging each other and not enough time doing their jobs
    -turnover is high and everything is seniority based, but with the turnover it takes YEARS to achieve seniority where you won't be doing AT LEAST 60 hours a week. (I generally do around 75)
    -the sales manager is in everyones business and hinders other managers abilities to do their jobs properly, also constantly changing sales strategies but not communicating it to all staff, then reprimanding staff for not doing something when it was never communicated they should do it
    -Pretty much impossible to maintain relationships or go to school with this job since you will be working there 12+ hours a day 7 days a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat and train your employees better so they don't quit, leaving others to get mandatories until they burn out and quit. Get a new sales manager who actually helps employees instead of just promising to help and then never following through.

    Current Employee - Branch Manager in Jacksonville, FL

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

    Pros

    There is a great sense of camaraderie and if you are at the right store you can bonus upward of 15K quarterly.

    Cons

    Perpetually understaffed so Branch Managers will often work 60 hours per week which can be frustrating when your store is not bonusing or you are cutting staffs hours to meet OT goals. HIGH emphasis on sales with sometimes unrealistic goals-- can lead to some shady practices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cutting corners to save money short term will cause some of the best managers to leave
