    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.

    Pros

    The managment trainee program gives you the tools needed to get a positive grasp on the business world. Once you get to the position of branch manager a company car with free gass and free insurance is provided.

    Cons

    Managment beyond area manager/general manager has no idea what happens on the branch level and doesn't seem to care about anything but the stock of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some type of idea of what happens on the front lines.

    I have been working at Hertz full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you like a fast pace environment where you have a lot of growth potential, Hertz is the place. The off airport market is growing very quickly and as a result many new management positions open on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Long hours and pressure to sell

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the focus on the long term growth

    I have been working at Hertz full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I absolutely love everything about working for Hertz! The company offers great benefits to its full time employees and competitive compensation. The employee review process is organized and room for advancement is eminent. Management for my team is outstanding; the team is professional and friendly and dedicated to getting me the resources I need to get the job done right in the most efficient way utilizing all of the necessary technology and tools available in today’s advanced society. I enjoy coming to work every day and am always excited to see what adventure and learning experience will come out of each day. Hertz values their employees and makes great strides in ensuring our happiness, health and success. Now that I am a member of the Hertz family, I simply cannot imagine working anywhere else – I just don’t think anyone can compete.

    Cons

    The hiring process is long and once hired EVERYTHING has to go through a lengthy approval process which causes delays in productivity during the first month of employment. I suppose this fact is true for most large corporations, however so it cannot really be held against them as an employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! I LOVE it when realatives and friends ask how work is going becasue I get to tell them about how much I enjoy the work I do for Hertz. I could do this type of work anywhere for any company but it is the perk of having a great manager who cares about work-life balance and the success of the individual that sets Hertz above the bar! Thank You!

    I have been working at Hertz full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I love knowing that the company is always moving forward. There are so many positions that opportunities are endless. I love controlling my own career. We are always learning new things as we go with the times. My boss has an open door policy he never judges but finds ways to assist me without handing every answer to me. Perks company car with paid fuel

    Cons

    We are focused on hiring the right people so the hiring process is slow and we are understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of sending new team members it would be better to have one training class for everyone then send them to their prospective branches.
