Door to Opportunities

Manager Trainee (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

ProsThis company is giving me the opportunity to move into a management position in a shorter time frame then I thought. I was previously working for another globally known company that was founded on the principle of promoting within. However, when I applied to various supervisory positions, I realized the politics I had to overcome.

ConsLack of flexibility in the schedule can be a bit challenging especially being a single parent with a small child

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Been there one month

Mechanic B (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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

Prossteady work, good training for beginning mechanic. Most of the mechanics have been very helpful training me. I've learned alot in the first month and plan to keep on pushing for more training.

Consthe union. It's a pain in the butt. None of the mechanics seem to have any initiative to do anything beyond their defined job duties because of the union rules. The salaries are defined not by how good you are but by how long you've worked there and there's a maximum cap. Don't believe that a union is automatically good for you.

Advice to Senior Managementget rid of the union

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Work Hard, Play Hard

Manager Trainee (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

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

ProsIf your looking for a job where you are not tied to a desk all day long, this is the job for you. We are constantly out assisting customers, moving around fleet, or out meeting partners. If you do your job well and right, advancement opportunities are limitless.

ConsThe day is long at times, but that comes with the retail territory. Customer's will get under your skin at times, so you better be able to shake it off and get back out there.

Advice to Senior ManagementI have appreciated that upper level management takes the time to come visit us in the trenches. It stresses some people out, but it does speak about the direction HLE is headed for.
