I have been working at Hertz full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Always changing for the better, able to move around within the company, the company is world wide, leads in technology, has GREAT services, positive atmosphere, high exactions/standards. If you work hard you will be able to move anywhere within the company.

Cons

Salary is not the best for the amount of work you do.
In order to get everything done you will definitely need to put in more than 40 hours.

    Pros

    Managers get car privileges.
    The people are hard working.
    Upper management will not visit your branch if you hitting your sales numbers.

    Cons

    Always under staffed. After Hertz went public recently "the less staff the better" has become upper management's approach. They refer to the staff in the branches as "head count". The less heads the better! This creates big customer service issues because customers are forced to wait on long lines to get a car. No matter how many "heads" upper management gives you they aways demand a 20% increase in revenue year over year.

    Upper management overbooks reservations and don't come through with the cars to rent. This is another reason customers have to wait so long for their cars. Of course poor customers service scores fall on the Branch Managers and poor scores reduce the bonus you will receive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop asking managers to go on Glassdoor and give high scoring reviews! If you wants better scores create a better work environment!

    A once-great company that went down the toilet after going public.

    I worked at Hertz full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits package, 401(k), etc. On-site cafeteria. On-site gym (though it isn't free of cost to employees)

    Cons

    Unethical, incompetent, borderline-criminal upper management more concerned with padding their own portfolios than managing a company so that it is good for both customers and employees. Once a company goes public, it all becomes about the ROI and everything else becomes secondary and a slave to that concept, even when it drives away their best employees and short-changes customers who have come to expect better from this once-great company.

    The IT department is a shadow of it's former self. They are rehiring, however Hertz has built a reputation among the local IT community that it is a good first IT job to gain resume material, it's no longer to be considered for a long-term career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think much will change until the corrupt and snake-like upper management, namely Mark Frissora, has moved on to destroy his next company.
