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

Pros

This job really is a blessing in disguise. After graduating college with an English degree, I had a hard time finding a job within my major. After months of searching to no results I applied for Hertz. I was hired almost immediately despite having little to no customer service/sales experience. In four months I was promoted to Assistant Manager, and in eight months I was managing my own Branch. After a year and a half I run five locations altogether and feel like I have developed skills that I would not otherwise have had and that I have gained very valuable experience going forward with my career.

Not only do I feel rewarded personally, but I have helped develop many employees along the way that have followed in my footsteps to become Assistant and Branch Managers. Whereas most of my friends have dead end jobs that, while they may make decent money, there is really no mobility. With Hertz I have experienced firsthand what it is like to work for a progressive company that truly does reward hard work. The opportunity is really endless, and you get back what you put in to the job, which I believe is not something a lot of companies can do for you.

On top of all I listed previously, you do get a sense of camaraderie when working here and I have met a lot of great people that have made it fun to go to work. And the bonuses can be a very nice supplement to your salary/hourly wages. Hertz also offers great medical/retirement benefits.

Cons

Working long hours and washing cars with your college degree are common complaints, but honestly, when I started I needed the overtime and it really helped with paying off bills and student loans. Also, I used to be a porter for a car dealership so the car-cleaning aspect was not something that bothered me personally, and sometimes it is a nice reprieve to get out of the office and make the day go by.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More/better fleet at times. A more streamlined, straightforward process for ordering supplies.

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

    Pros

    amazing bonuses, interesting people, ability to advance and move around, get to drive all the cool cars, lots to do outside of the office, sales experience, benefits, networking, Hertz is a leader in technology compared to competition,

    Cons

    customers can be really rude when they dont get what they want, must be extremely detail oriented, high turnover, hours can be early/late/long, dont always have the tools (people, time, cars) nessecary to do something 100% how you would like it to be done, formal training isnt always provided so they expect managers to pass info on to their employees and it does not always happen

    I have been working at Hertz full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It is a great, fast-paced environment. I really enjoy the people I work with. Pretty good benefits as you move up the ladder and you can be promoted fairly quickly.

    Cons

    It can get a little crazy at times, and sometimes stores can be short on cars but we always make it through just fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some locations and areas just need more vehicles to rent and more staffing. Those are pretty much the two keys to making everything run a lot smoother than it already does.
