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

    Pros

    It is a fast-paced environment where key metrics are tracked. If you are a hard worker and great performer you will move up quickly. I became a Branch Manager in less than 2 years!
    Everything is based on how much you put into it.

    Cons

    Long hours and dealing with difficult customers is a reality but if you are not able to handle that than this wasn't for you to start.

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

    Pros

    Lots of advancement, benefits, friendly work environment, overtime, bonuses, additional incentives, accommodating scheduling if you need time off or vacation, floating holidays and holiday pay, not open on Sunday's, and great communication and upper management support.

    Cons

    Lot's of hours (50+ week) but overtime is provided, it can be very fast paced and overwhelming if you do not know how to multitask, will be asked to occasionally work Saturday's (4 hours), and new hire training does not fully teach requirements and skills needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to see more time put into the new hire training as well as a possible "dummy" system that would mimic the actual rental process. More role playing as well as Sales Based Training should be taught before doing actual rentals.

    I have been working at Hertz

    Pros

    Nice cars
    always hiring (quick entry)
    earn experience as a sales rep, manager, and customer service
    leadership classes offered which pad resume

    Cons

    Incompetent management
    Unrealistic sales goals
    forces you to be shady towards customers and co-workers
    cleaning cars in business attire
    managers always hassling you about sales numbers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower sales expectations to a reasonable amount and monitor when employees are altering contracts and ripping off customers to improve sales.
