    Pros

    World wide company with tons of opportunities to promote or relocate.

    Cons

    Employee moral is low, upper tiers of management don't seem to see or know what really happens on the bottom.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen and pay attention to the needs/wants and advice all of the employees.

    I have been working at Hertz

    Pros

    As a full time you do get health benefits, which has a really good health coverage. I have been given tips in cash, once even offered lunch courtesy of the customer i was dropping off. 1 hour lunch. laid back management

    Cons

    Ive been working here for 8 months and havent been even in the mention for a pay raise, the location i work i vacuum the cars in the back behind the office but there is no cover for shade just straight sun beaming down. no incentives for the utility position , all the other positions get incentives and possible advancement. under staffed at most locations

    Advice to Management

    Bring incentives for all positions. when i first started back in october of 2014 the area manager would buy lunch for everyone at least once or twice a month then went to happy hour after work on company card. Only because our office was 1st in the area with most sales and upgrades. bring that back

    Pros

    Free car and free gas. Typically upper management are real down to earth people. You will enjoy the job for the most part if you don't mind customer service.

    Cons

    Bonus structure is always changing, that's where you make most of your money. Most locations are understaffed

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and have a better bonus compensation or raise the salaries
