    Pros

    Great place to work before the merger with Hertz in November, 2012. Great location, fun people and family-like atmosphere.

    Cons

    The merger with Hertz & layoff of hundreds of Tulsa workers. Hertz customer service leaves something to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Hertz needs to put people in charge that know something about the business of car rental. Since the merger, the entire executive team has turned over (which hopefully is a good thing).

    I have been working at Dollar Thrifty Automotive (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great commisssion schedule. Room to grow.

    Cons

    Dollar/ Thrifty has a "core program" which means if you don't make your sales quota your job is over head. 1 month of not making yield and you have 3 months straight to catch up or you go into Core 2 6 months of this and you are fired!!!! Sucks!!

    Advice to Management

    come up to airport more often instead of 10 min every 2 days

    I have been working at Dollar Thrifty Automotive full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training program for entrylevel rental sales. Opportunity for advancement. Must build seniority through longevity, policies and procedures according to contract.

    Cons

    earning commission during slow times and local renterers, keeping up with rental commission period start and stop days, base pay at 10.00 to star, hours change every 6 months based on seniority bid process, .

    Advice to Management

    Povide proper guidance during peak periods so that employees know what to expect during slow times. Allow flexibility in assignments.
