    I have been working at Hertz full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work independently. Ability to make money depending on how well you relate to people and how persuasive you are to sell there products.

    Cons

    Horrible upper management skills that do not focus on employee development and health related safety. Under-staffing and overworked environment that presents little to no compensation for the amount of effort you put into the job. Shabby Human Resources department that is quick to dismiss claims related to employee rights. New managerial decisions is focusing more on making the company wealthier rather then making their employees happier or provided resources much needed to succeed in this career choice.

    Advice to Management

    When selecting managers for your selected branches look at the skills and qualifications for each person. Don't select a person for their job based on likability.

    I have been working at Hertz full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company car. With Hertz being world wide you can easily get one on your vacation too as a manager.

    Cons

    Management is so out of of touch. No 'real' thank you, employee appreciation or holiday parties. I worked for Enterprise Rent A Car and they did a much better job taking care of their employees and boosting employee morale, despite the intense presure of sales.

    Advice to Management

    Get approval from corporate to finally upgrade the office locations. The interior office spaces are often located in a cubicle small space either in a dealership or hotel. The free standing locations are the worst real estate locations one can imagine. The office enviornment for any employee is key to morale and overall employee performance. Old carpets, furniture, yellow walls is disatrous for employees and customers. I worked for Hertz for 7 years and heard this every week from someone.
