I worked at Hertz full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good people to work with, bonus is good if you get one.
Overtime is 1.5, get plenty because not enough staff.

Cons

Hourly pay is laughable, expect you to run a branch on your own at $10/hr. Promise you bonus's but never follow through - then blame you as the reason you didn't get one.
Not enough staff, constantly understaffed - expected to run a branch with 1 or 2 people.

Advice to Management

Look closely when promoting area managers, some are good, but some couldn't complete a contract if their life depended on it. Area managers should be willing to help their employees not just tell them to "sell through it" -- give some advice, show them how!

    I have been working at Hertz full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement. Health and retirement benefits. Pension.

    Cons

    Red tape, RIF's to meet business plan when in fact generating healthy profits, lower than average pay, you're just a number. Corporate red tape hinders any type of quick business decisions to be made which in turn costs more money in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what the people on the ground are telling you. Your decisions being made from your pedestal above is without common business knowledge of what is going on "in the trenches".
