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

Pros

It was great having a company car, but working 12 hour days, so then by the weekend, I was too tired to use it to go anywhere. Not a bad strategy

Cons

Honesty and integrity are not valued as much as bottom line and making it look good.

Advice to Management

Teach your managers to manage. Use the carrot, not the whip. Use your heads, you can't punish people to get better. Progressive discipline should be combined with retraining and motivation.

    I have been working at Hertz full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The opportunitty for advacement is based solely on results and teamwork. Also, the skills you learn are transferable: IE. how to run your own business with P&L responsibilities. You have complete oversight of your own business within 18 months of joining the company.

    Cons

    Customers can sometimes be a challenge, but with training and experience you quickly learn how to difuse situations and delight.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your plan - it's working. Hard work rewarded with handsome compensation and above average paid time off. One of the few compnies that I know of where you get 3 weeks of vacation after your first year and both an employer 401K match in addition to a 100% company paid retirement plan.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to make lots of money, either from incentives or overtime.

    Cons

    Unethical co-workers specifically lying to customers, placing customers on hour on longer wait lists if they do not pay more for upgrades. Lying to customers about the customers coverages. Co-workers who wont answer calls from certain location, hanging up on customers would negatively impact the employees numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor what your employees are doing. They may be making money for you now. But word will get around how often your employees are lying and scamming customers.
