    Pros

    They give recent graduates an opportunity to work for a major corporation. The position allows you to depend on your team so as an individual you always have help.

    Cons

    The position requires you to work at least 45 hours a week but the pay for the amount of hours and work aren't the best. The chance for promotions are solely based on sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the amount of hours required to work, pay should be more. Area managers should be more hands on and helpful to their branches.

    I have been working at Hertz

    Pros

    As a manager with company car privileges you can fly into any domestic airport and drive a company vehicle. Opportunities for furthering education.

    Cons

    Work - life balance is non-existent. Unfortunately, I myself am not striving to be a GM simply because it appears your expected to make greater sacrifices in your personal life. Some of the working conditions are unfavorable. Lack of team leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have a higher standard. We shouldn't be renting cars with 60 to 70k miles - it's embarrassing and contributes to diminishing the brand.

    Overworked and underpaid by Hertz

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Hertz

    Pros

    Leadership experience, seemed to be a good bonus structure

    Cons

    There was limited mobility. There were never any area manager positions open, and rarely seemed to be any branch manager positions open. Unruly customers. Cleaning cars in a tie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better.
