I have been working at Hertz full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Its good experience for individuals with no prior job experience and that have a college degree.

Cons

They will only hire individuals with Bachelor's degrees and every one hast to start as a Manager Trainee regardless of job experience. On top of all that it makes manager trainees wash cars. Manager trainee is just a title that they throw around.

Advice to Management

pay more, and hire car washing clerks instead of making college grads feel like manual labor clerks.

    Pros

    hmm...if you rent a lot, you will get discounts on car rentals

    Cons

    Where to start? Manager Trainee position should not require a college degree; I could've done this job while in high school. It’s a joke, they want college degrees but yet the pay is not even close to being decent. The only want to bring home 2000 a month after taxes would be to work 50 plus hours weekly, the bonus structure is totally not possible if you’re doing everything ethically. The company lets the customer abuse the employees and don't let the branch manager or area manager try to lie about it being easy to move up within the company. The only way to move up is if several people just die/quit, upper management is completely out of touch with what’s going on at the rental level. They want you to look professional, but yet they expect you to go out in 90 degree weather in a shirt and tie to clean cars, turn around and pick up customers and then also rent to them...wouldn't wish this on an enemy

    Advice to Management

    If you want quality college educated people, pay better. Hire porters to clean the cars, better work/life balance in addition to better health care coverage

    I have been working at Hertz full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    overtime available, drive new cars, can have fun with co-workers at times, work day goes by fast as you are always busy, working with customers can be fun

    Cons

    LOUSY pay, you will need to work 10+ hours of overtime to compensate for the low hourly wage, minimal vacation day accrual, management get suspicious if you ask for time off for legit reasons such as dentist (they think you are interviewing for other jobs, which you will want to be!), can be physically demanding cleaning cars, working at the Local Edition requires a lot of driving around the city, customer service so you are constantly dealing with angry/upset customers. This is a sales position. In some areas of the country, you will sign an agreement stating that should you not meet your sales goal for 4 consecutive months, you will be terminated. If you don't have thick skin, aren't a salesman, and don't want to work HARD to become a branch manager (long hours, mediocre pay), than save yourself and the company time and take your talent elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    pay these "management trainees" a decent wage. 10 dollars an hour for a full-time, college-educated person is exploitation. You will occasionally get great talent who only took the job because the market is so tough currently --try to get those people to stay. The good-looking, well-spoken, nicely dressed and aggressive recent grads are the only people who will grow your business.
