Pros

Great Benefits. Due to rapid and continual employee turnover, especially in field managers, the chances for advancement are solid.

Cons

Senior Management lacks field and/or industry experience. Penny pinching 'initiatives' ignore the fundamental issues of pricing for local markets, right-size staffing and attempt to replace their lack of knowledge.

    Pros

    Great managers at the local level- They work hard to make things run smoothly.
    Employees are genuinely friendly from my experience.
    Incentive bonus is okay - can easily double monthly earnings with good charismatic approach.

    Cons

    Too many managers, miscommunication inevitable.
    If you're not good at lying or manipulating customers, you won't get much sales comp.
    Company goals per quarter from upper management tend to be fantasies.
    Every incentive of the company is to make money (rhetorical statement) but their method relies more on getting the one customer who's willing to fork over the dough rather than keep their customers wanting to come back.
    Expect to live the life of Hertz, on-call, moving up means you sacrifice more family time.
    Managers are working 16-18 hours at a time to keep things running.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is fine at the local level, those above them need to actually try out what it's like at the counter nowadays and work their way up.
