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

Pros

It was great having a company car, but working 12 hour days, so then by the weekend, I was too tired to use it to go anywhere. Not a bad strategy

Cons

Honesty and integrity are not valued as much as bottom line and making it look good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Teach your managers to manage. Use the carrot, not the whip. Use your heads, you can't punish people to get better. Progressive discipline should be combined with retraining and motivation.

    I worked at Hertz full-time

    Pros

    Close relationships with co-workers was the best part, I was fortunate to have a good working relationship with most people I encountered.

    Cons

    Lack of honest communication, too many changes without real explanation. Those in hourly positions often felt out of the loop and disposable. Often heard comments from others about "Mark and his buddies in Park Ridge" and the benefits they had as compared to those in OKC and elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make ALL employees feel appreciated and not just those in Park Ridge. Increase wages when you increase workload. Demanding more work without compensation sours employees against the company very quickly.
