    Hertz Equipment Rental - dangerous career environment.

    Business Development Manager (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    Prosopportunity to ring the till daily and create value for entire team.

    Consi had four different bosses each with a different objective for me...and one of them laid me off. everyone should know exactly who their one boss is, and exactly what your individual and collective objective is. not so at HERC.

    Advice to Senior Managementget your organization chart squared away. provide authorization to employees that equals their responsibilities.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Best company I've worked for

    Location Manager (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsThe pros of this career is that there is amazing opportunities all over the place. Upper management is amazing when it comes to asking questions, they are always availible talk if not they will give you a call right back the same day. Here in the Charlotte NC region we may have one of the best group of employees I have worked with in a long time.

    ConsThere are no cons to working for Hertz.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe advice I would give is to hit the door running, and to ask all of the questions you can ask that way you can move up the corporate ladder.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great experience dealing with the public, sales, and overall leadership when if you take it serious.

    Manager Associate (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsThe company has great benefits. It is a great learning experience because you encounter a lot of different situations. You get a lot of hours.

    ConsThe pay is not all that great. At times you get TOO many hours. Same thing everyday for the most part.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRaise the pay so you can keep you best employees. They end up leaving to work for the "other guys."
