Pros

You are paid weekly. Also, you learn a bit on how to run business (if you are at a local edition). You get to drive brand new cars. Very easy job if you don't mind selling which is only as complicated as you make it. If you can drive and fake a smile to crazy customers, then your in. Cleaning cars is all that bad, you get used to it and it becomes a zen-like experience. Wax on,Wax off.

Cons

Ok..They say $40,000 compensation in the phone interview and quickly cut that down by 65% when you are given the offer. That was my first red flag.Customers! You can't hide from them-they are in your face front and center. For example, they will say that they want a discount;they will complain that the car that you have just personally cleaned smells stinky;they fight you and cuss you; they will just be what customers are-annoying. Also, there are not enough hours in the day to get all the things that you need to get completed by close..you will stay later, you will have to arrive early and do extra things to make the business run-like cleaning cars. It can be overwhelming, especially in NYC where the customer line is out the door. You must be careful with those brand new cars as well!!

Advice to Management

None. Thank you for the experience.

    Pros

    Promotion/Bonus Potential Drive New Cars Learn About Business

    Cons

    You will work around 60hrs a week with essentially angry people confronting you all day Cleaning cars in professional business attire Bonus Structure Setup to Payout Very Little No, and I truly mean no, support from upper management; only interaction is when goals (sometimes legitimate and obtainable, most times not) are not being met. Threats of firings are the standard form of motivation Constant Turnover Zero life work balance (What good is driving a car home if you are too wornout to do anything after work?) Initially trained for a week and then almost totally on one's own All this for 10-11 an hour I am not disgruntled, merely providing a realisitic view of working for Hertz from a fairly normal person because it seems upper management is attempting to dilute the true results of this useful 3rd-Party Website...

    Advice to Management

    The shell of this company is set to grow and become a true rival of Enterprise but is being anchored by what can only be described as HORRIFIC employee relations/morale
