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

Pros

Fun and exciting industry. Excellent benefits and great work environment.

Cons

Sales reps are micromanaged and even though it is a large company we rarely have the resources to do our job at the highest level of efficiency. There is a lot red tape.

Advice to Management

Let your employees do their job, especially if the results are there.

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

    Pros

    -The job itself is fairly easy

    -Good discount on cars

    -Working at the airport you meet some interesting people

    Cons

    -There is no work/life balance. You'll be scheduled for 40 hours off the bat, but then they'll tack on 4 extra hours to almost every day you're scheduled and force you to come in for 8 hours on your days off. I haven't had a day off in over a month and work 70+ hours every week.

    -The sales goals are extremely unrealistic and are hit by 20% or less of employees on a monthly basis

    -The managers are unforgiving when making the schedule and do not seem to care if you have any personal events going on

    -Your job is constantly being threatened by the managers. Their idea of motivation is to let you know you'll be in the unemployment line if you don't step it up. There's no positive reinforcement to speak of, and you're never, EVER congratulated for doing a good job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so hypocritical. It's not fair to give someone a hard time about their sales numbers when nobody ever has enough time to recharge their batteries because they're at work all the time. Also, try to act like you care about the employees instead of hanging them out to dry all the time. Lastly, there needs to be more balance in this company. All the managers give themselves nice cushy schedules and work all the regular employees down to the bone. A little more disparity would be great.
