    Pros

    Helpful management and good learning environment. Interoffice transfers were easy and helped my commute. Highly recommended this job to friends and enjoyed my time there. Friendly work environment!

    Cons

    Little overturn in the management which is good and bad. Less upward mobility than desired. Maybe expanding would help with that issue.

    You meet a lot of great people which you may stay in contact with after employment. If you enjoy working alone with lil
    To no management this is a great fit.

    Cons

    They should appreciate the employees they have because employees appreciate the little things like being told they're doing great or being offered water through out the day.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about the NPS so much and actually listen to employees opinions, wants & needs.

    Pros

    Pay is good. Benefits are good. If you can sell, then commissions are really good.

    Cons

    Stress from having no cars on the lot will make customers upset, but yet you still have to get them to buy something from you.

    I worked at Dollar Rent A Car (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There aren't really any pros to this job since Hertz purchased the company.

    Cons

    Not compensated enough to deal with the amount of stress that is pushed on the employees.
    Management couldn't care less about their employees, refusing to even give acknowledgement of a job well done, or an employee going far beyond what they are expected to do.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and in turn they will take care of the customers.

    "It Hurts at Hertz"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Customer Service Counter Rental Sales in Santa Ana, CA
    Current Employee - Customer Service Counter Rental Sales in Santa Ana, CA

    I have been working at Dollar Rent A Car full-time

    Pros

    This is a good company to work at when you're starting out. The diversity of people you work with in this customer service based employment gives opportunity to hone your customer service skills with each individual experience

    Cons

    Now as being run by the antiquated ideals of Hertz Corporation, managment lacks and your ability to earn money for yourself has been diminished considerable. However, lining the pockets of Hertz continues to increase. They make it impossible to earn commission and base pay is peanuts.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the DOLLAR management ways. Leave Hertz so Dollar can grow and not be run into the ground
