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

Pros

Its a good job to have right out of college, but try not to get stuck here. Employee Benefits are good, especially for those who do not have their own insurance.

Cons

Where should I start? A majority of the customers are rude! The pay is low, Expect to work 50+ hours on a weekly basis, so if you do not want a social life, this job is perfect. Turnover is extremely high so you will always be working at a branch that is understaffed . The insurance replacements are the worst. . You have to clean cars wearing your work clothes, the hours are long, and picking up people can be very dangerous, especially for women. The company only cares about making money, you are taught how to deceive people.

Advice to Management

Hire more people and actually care about your employees

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

    Pros

    Easy Work.
    Good people.
    Decent pay.
    Job perks at the level of Branch Manager and higher.

    Cons

    Long hours.
    Not enough pay with student loans.
    Illogical expectations of sales quotas, especially in certain markets.
    Unavailability of vehicles.

    Advice to Management

    Don't set expectations for sales for people who are renting cars through insurance replacement plans and have no plan on spending money out of pocket. If you're making people work 10.5-11+ hours per day, pay them better, or lower expectations.

    For example, how are we supposed to upsell people into more expensive vehicles when we do not have any vehicles other than the ones that are being held for the reservations.

    I understand having utilization goals but having to turn away customers because we don't have cars is a) bad for NPS as well as SRPD and b) bad for business.

    I'd only recommend this company to people who have nothing else going for them and have no other skills.

    I have been working at Hertz full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Process driven
    Compensated by performance
    Company Car
    Outstanding communications
    Career opportunities
    Industry Leader

    Cons

    In today's buinsess macro, the Hertz Corp is top notch in communicating our mission and objectives. Although some may feel the actions taken to remain profitable are extreme, it is necessary for the future of our company. I can not put a negative conatation on a correct business decision (must). Great job!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Company transperency is critical. Thanks for being transparent>
