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

Pros

Learned a lot about business and time management. Dealt with customers and able to drive a lot.

Cons

Long Hours were normal. Lots of pressure on hitting sales goals. No much flexibility on vacation because of minimum staffing.

Advice to Management

Shorten hours and less sales pressure.

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

    Pros

    Although there’s not much positive to say as it relates the corporate culture of the company, at minimum I have developed coping skills that will allow me to function in extreme work environments; in short, Hertz has prepared me for the absolute worst! Also, this employment experience has served as a great resume' builder when applying for other jobs.

    Cons

    Operating the business with limited to no resources, poorly maintained vehicles, understaffed locations, outdated systems, unreasonable goals, and aggressive customers are the norm within the daily work environment of the typical Hertz location. Also, I am not completely sure as to how new hires are required to possess a college degree to become a “manager trainee” but yet and still many Branch Managers and Area Managers don’t possess these minimum qualifications! The corporate culture of this company is absolutely terrible at the both the branch and corporate levels.

    Advice to Management

    Stop forcing your employees to saturate Glass door with false reviews in a desperate attempt to improve the company's profile; invest your time by going into your locations and begin to make improvements as it relates to operation of the business.
