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

Pros

Free car, and gas. New building, clean bathrooms!!!

Cons

You will work more than 40 hours week almost 55+ and up some weeks. Bonus.. what bonus it changes each year so much its just crazy. Never work at the Miami Airport!!! You have been warned. Any other airport non union is ok but never go to Miami. Also no pay increase ever! Union controls the managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No advice the turnover is so crazy whats the point to suggest something. In my brief time there saw 8 managers, 24 CSR, 2 Area Mangers, and heard the HR manager left.

    Pros

    Driving around all the different car is pretty neat. That is about all this job has going for it.

    Cons

    I have read all the reviews and every single negative commit has happened to me personally. The pay system is a joke with a very bad punch-line. (That is your check) I graduated from college to get a job washing cars in a tie. They made it sound like in my interview that the only time that you would wash cars was if it was really busy, but instead they don't have a person to wash cars and expect all employees to do so. To hit your numbers you have to straight up lie to your customers about everything that you are selling. If you don't hit your numbers they will write you up so they have a paper trail to not pay unemployment claims. The numbers can be changed by upper management at any time so you dont know what you are aiming at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just care about you employees and your customers. Just becouse you can save a dollar does not mean that it is a good idea.

    I worked at Hertz full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Able to drive around different cars (if that is your thing), no "set desk" so plenty of time to move around, advancement opportunities if you know the right people, and the availability for overtime if you desire.

    Cons

    60 hour weeks common, washing vehicles in extreme heat or cold, extreme favoritism, horrible benefits, forced to sell coverage and being rewarded for cheating to do so, working in buildings that violate safety codes, false advertising of advancement opportunities, unachievable goals, extremely low pay, micromanaged to the T.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO has no connect with front-line workers. Upper management will spend hours over reports but nothing gets accomplished. Pay more to your employees that bring in your customers that pay for your salary. Promote on goals achieved, not who you can manage like a puppet. Don't tell your branches to rent cars when you have none to rent out.
