    I worked at Hertz

    Pros

    Hertz is the number one rental car company in the world. Everyone knows about them. Hertz has the largest collection of cars that updates frequently. Hertz has everything from budget economy cars to large SUVs and convertible sports cars. All cars Hertz has are available to drive and clean. Despite how some people who posted Hertz employment reviews elsewhere; I enjoy cleaning cars, even while wearing a suit and tie. You get to work with a very diverse group of co-workers and customers. And if you keep your sales numbers on the high side, you are promised promotions and commissions.

    Cons

    All Hertz jobs focuses on selling and marketing of optional services: loss damage waivers, gas, upgrades, lower class cars, etc. It seems like that in order to be successful within Hertz, you must sell these thing consistently. And you are trained to 'sell' anything, even to downright lie to customers if they don't get what they wanted or reserved. Hours are always long, from before 7 am to after store closing at 6 pm, but do get paid overtime. Customers are expectant of high praise and customer service from the world's largest rental car company and it pains some that we could not deliver sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and not make the Manager Trainee position successful by looking at sales numbers solely.
