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

Pros

The hours are great. Pay is good with bonuses as incentive. Benefits are great. It's nice to drive a variety of vehicles. Hard work does pay off as far as being able to move up within the company. Management gets a Hertz vehicle to drive.

Cons

Goals are sometimes unattainable leaving employees feeling down and on edge. The job can be frustrating sometimes because nothing seems to be straight-forward. There are a dozen different senarios for each customer, all with different answers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Each area is different (population/demographics/income), so therefore the goals for each area should be different.

    Pros

    Although there’s not much positive to say as it relates the corporate culture of the company, at minimum I have developed coping skills that will allow me to function in extreme work environments; in short, Hertz has prepared me for the absolute worst! Also, this employment experience has served as a great resume' builder when applying for other jobs.

    Cons

    Operating the business with limited to no resources, poorly maintained vehicles, understaffed locations, outdated systems, unreasonable goals, and aggressive customers are the norm within the daily work environment of the typical Hertz location. Also, I am not completely sure as to how new hires are required to possess a college degree to become a “manager trainee” but yet and still many Branch Managers and Area Managers don’t possess these minimum qualifications! The corporate culture of this company is absolutely terrible at the both the branch and corporate levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop forcing your employees to saturate Glass door with false reviews in a desperate attempt to improve the company's profile; invest your time by going into your locations and begin to make improvements as it relates to operation of the business.

    Pros

    Driving new cars around has it's perks.

    Cons

    I've never worked for a company that drives away so many great employees. Upper management has resorted to belittling and degrading their employees in hope that it will scare them into performing better, but it just deteriorates employee morale. All of the goals are unattainable unless you're doing something shady, and therefore encourages sales fraud to avoid having your job threatened on a monthly basis. The stores are understaffed, which leads to bad customer service levels, yet they drill their employees on improving without the necessary tools to do so. Stores that should have five employees have two, and those two employees are physically and mentally exhausted. Anyone who has not quit, wants to, and your fellow employees are thrilled for you when you find another job and "escape." If given the proper tools and motivation, the company could assuredly thrive and hit the goals they present to their investors, but without a huge change in management style, that will never happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Results come when your employees are motivated, not terrified of losing their jobs. People strive for great results when they feel like they are valued.
