    I have been working at Hertz full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I believe strongly in Hertz leadership and the overall direction of our company. Hertz provides employees with many opportunities for growth and development. Teamwork is valued and the company values continuous improvement and striving to be the best. Excited to have Brian MacDonald as our new interim CEO.

    Cons

    Hertz is in a growth mode with many changes happening at the moment. It makes work challenging and very busy.

    Pros

    The people are extremely passionate about the brand. It is a fast paced environment and always in a state of change. No day is ever the same.

    Cons

    The company is constantly in change mode and it's difficult to keep pace with the changes. At times, it doesn't appear as if the strategic direction of the organization is clear, however, under new leadership this might change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have an opportunity to do great things with this amazing brand. Empower your people to help take it to the next level.

    Pros

    Good Co-Workers who help push in a fun competetive enviornment

    Cons

    Wages are a bit on the low side. Kind of left relying on your sales commission.

    A little bit more of a base pay rate would help.

    I have been working at Hertz full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The ceiling at Hertz is extremely high. Motivated individuals can excel on any career path. Those who are content to perform at status quo likely won't stick around, save those who are nearing pension.

    Cons

    Before accepting an interview, do yourself a favor and inquire about the Union contract at a particular location (varies). Both salary & hourly employees will be greatly impacted by specific labor contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't bend to falling industry standards. Continue to pursue high-revenue customers, push leisure and budget travel to DTAG/FF.
