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

    Pros

    New cars to drive, plenty of training available in many business aspects, classroom and online. coworkers are respectful. Plenty of promotional opportunity with the willingness to move. 401k, Health benefits are decent, lots of company associated discounts

    Cons

    long hours, goals and targets are not clear or are moving. Union environment divides local managers and hourly employees. too many conference calls, and spreadsheets. Define insanity - doing the same thing over and over and expecting different or better results. Try some new tactics, especially fleet logistics. Integration of Dollar Thrifty has been rocky. Hiring process is slow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for truth and listen to the answers.

    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.
