    Pros

    DTAG Division is in process of acquiring Hertz corporate culture. Hopefully will improve employee morale.

    Cons

    Preferencial treatment from management to certain employees. No respect toward customers from management. No work-life balance.

    I have been working at Hertz full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The best thing about working for hertz is the co-workers. Everyone tries to have a positive attitude and we all keep each other going. Other than each other, the other thing is the benefits. We have great health insurance with a Health Reimbursement Account, you also start out what time off. Vacation and personal days as well as plenty of sick days

    Cons

    The company does not have a good culture, it seems as if its all about making money. No one cares about the well being of employees. You have to take write up's for things you didn't do. Upper management does not know what they are doing, some of them don't even know workers names.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about employees and the fact that they are taking care of customers. Management should treat employees like customers and make them feel appreciated.

    Pros

    Good people to worth with. Upper management stays in touch with you. Promotion opportunities begin after first few months of working. Keeps you on your feet.

    Cons

    Long, long, long hours. Average around 50hrs/week. Sales bonuses are skewed in a weird way. Possible switching of offices through promotion, making you need to learn the ins-and-outs of a different location every time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More staff, less hours, improved sales commission system.

    I have been working at Hertz full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    HR and Supervisors(TPLs) will work with you on numerous issues, but you have to make sure you have all your paperwork in line. Employees are generally nice and empathetic.

    Cons

    Low compensation for work required and raises do not keep up with inflation. Mandatory overtime due to bad hiring practices. They will increase your work load without increasing your pay. Benefits and incentives are comically bad. No back-up systems for system outages. Cares more about metrics than customers. Management seems impervious to change. Requires a bachelors to become a supervisor, meaning that merit is not rewarded. Paid Time Off is subject to approval, it can also be cancelled at a whim. Most people quit within in their first 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your employees appropriately and they will stay. Stop rewarding seniority and reward merit. Stop adding processes to systems that currently work. Get rid of your CEO and most of your upper management, find some talent to replace them. Make sure that the product works. Stop removing customer and employee incentives. There are so many things that could change, but like I said in the "Cons" section...

    I have been working at Hertz full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You gain a lot of corporate experience working for Hertz.
    It can also be a fun place to work.
    There's always a challenge that needs resolution.

    Cons

    Not too sure the company as a whole has a clear path on its future.
    Management doesn't always help with career growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More direction needs to be given within different departments. Allow employees to move around the company and not get stuck within certain departments. If you do your job well, it can help and hurt you as management doesn't want to lose you and build a new team.
