    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Former Employee - Recruiting Manager in Park Ridge, NJ

    I worked at Hertz full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Hertz was pretty good at promoting from within and elevating their biggest asset, their employees, into higher positions with more responsibility and benefit. The company was progressive in their approach to stay ahead of the competition and be innovative in their space.

    Cons

    There is no clear cut, outlined, training and it is a very hands on, learn while you go job. While this can have it's benefits, it also has drawbacks that can ultimately lead to increased turnover. Work life balance is very tough during peak periods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better focus on training will lead to an improvement in turnover among new hires and positively impact the over turnover for employees within their first year on the job.

    I worked at Hertz full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Loved working with the people at the location, developing employees, gaining valuable experience in customer service and sales, company car

    Cons

    Upper management is a disgrace..they set unreachable goals and don't provide the necessary tools to succeed. Pay is low for hours worked. They work you to death without care especially at the management level. They don't care about the frontline employees when they are the ones most responsible for the success of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about your stock options and pay more attention to your employees and their needs. Focus more on great customer service instead of sales, sales, sales!!
