    Pros

    Hertz has a great corporate structure, if you are willing to put in the work it pays off. There is a lot of room for advancement. I was able to excel through the management training program within 8 months.

    The team atmosphere makes my job much more enjoyable, and we have a lot of support. Unlike most large companies I feel the upper management really acknowledges our ideas and supports us as much as we need. There is also a good deal of after-hours events for all levels that are pretty fun.

    Branch Manger salary is on the high end for entry level management. There is also the benefit of a company car and gas.

    Benefits are excellent. There is also an option for stock and 401K.

    The vacation package is more than I would have ever expected. We have enough that I can take a few nice trips each year.

    Cons

    Long hours

    Starting pay is low, but if you work for monthly bonus' it can make a huge difference

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I appreciate the opportunities we get to provide feedback, especially with skip level meetings. I would just say to keep doing things like this and listening to our ideas.
