Pros

You learn a lot from working long hours. The skills you gain from this looks great on your resume and will get you recognized by future employers.

Cons

They do not pay you for how hard you have to work and how stressful the job is. Not much feedback from upper management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please pay the management trainees more. We work very hard but never recognized. Maybe you all should watch Undercover Boss and learn a thing or two.

    Pros

    The use of a company vehicle anywhere in the US as a Location Manager is a great benefit. There is recurring training available free of charge.

    Cons

    The free car is not worth what you have to do. They say it is a chance to run your own company without the risk, but they tie your hands and place road blocks in your way. 95% of upper management have never worked at the branch level and therefore do not have a good idea of the struggles you have. The pressure sales approach lowers morale. Upper management does not have anyones interest in mind except their own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The branch level employees are the ones who have the contact with your customers, not some NPS customer system. The branch employees should be listened to more with the advice and problems that they have. The decisions made do not have your front line employees best interest. Hertz use to offer a true "no pressure approach" to optional sales and now they have gone to a very pressured approach. They are trying to be like Enterprise and most of the customers pick up on it. It is ruining their public image.
