    I have been working at Hertz full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Never boring
    Extremely sales oriented. It's a land of paradise for anyone with a sales/retail/marketing background
    Etremely competitive atmosphere
    Fun atmosphere
    There is always an opportunity to allow your talents to shine.
    Very well defined management promotion program
    Goals are always detailed

    Cons

    The atmosphere and the environment will filter the weak from the strong leader type personality
    On the HLE side the company, you work in an extrememly "small office" environment. Every individual is accountable for all aspects of daily operations and admin duties. You have to love responsability to survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make for of an attempt to get your hands durty and involved at the local branch level of operations.
    Research smaller market areas to identify unexpected variables; do not set general goals for an entire zone.

    Pros

    The upper management will acknowledge your dedication when you really deliver the extra mile service to your clients. There is a major difference in clientele base on the location you work in. That makes a major difference when it comes to sales approach and management principles. As long as you do what's right for people, they will take care of you immensely. The key to success here is high energy and accuracy. This is a great foundation for any business or ventures.

    Cons

    There is always a short amount of time as your resources. The only way to turn things around in a tight schedule is reduce your time in each assignments. The hertz local edition will be a lot of beneficial and the clients will be a lot more happier if the price of the car is charging according to the needs of the business and the situation of the clients. Encourage more to others who is falling behind, and allow those who thrive on all category leads, and there should be a overall increase in profits and productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee would benefit a lot more the stock options are available again. There needs to be reserve for rental fleets and human resource especially when it comes to the end of the year during December and November.
