    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.

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

    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 worked at Hertz

    Pros

    For the amount of work you do it's decent pay, bonuses for selling coverage above the threshold, nice people to work with, fast paced work environment which I like.

    Cons

    You often work 11-12 hour days on a regular basis (sometimes 630am-630pm at my location). When short staffed you work a lot of Saturdays (9-1). You have to deal with people yelling at you because they're unhappy with prices or the car they're getting. You have to wash the outside and clean the inside of every car in your dress clothes. Hard to balance work/life with this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more people at the HLE's so that it's not a 50-60 hour work week and shifts can be rotated.
