Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Weekly pay was the only nice thing

Cons

Unorganized
No resources
No good management

I had a horrible experience with a poor area manager and a very very bad branch manager.

Don't let them convince you to 'sell' so they can make more money off of you... Start applying for new jobs!!

Advice to Management

Buy more cars, hire good managers, don't be upset when unattainable goals aren't met because there are no cars, train your employees, give your employees a shirt or something.

Hire management based on skill.. Not the ability to cook the books and sweet talk.

    Former Employee - Manager in Park Ridge, NJ
    Former Employee - Manager in Park Ridge, NJ

    I worked at Hertz full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    good people, good process, always looking toward the future. CEO is energetic and charismatic with good financial and investment skills.

    Cons

    low salary, overworked and underpaid, does not treat long term employees fairly, changing their minds every 5 minutes with no long term strategy. The systems are old and india is a bad return on investement for the IT that was outsourced. Too many chiefs and not enough indians.

    Advice to Management

    treat your talent better and stop promoting people who don't deserve it just because they are yes men. Slow down and measure whether your improvements are returning results before making further changes to the organization. Moving the corporate offices to FL and changing the entire DNA of an organization that has been highly successful for many years is is very risky business. New blood is good, but there has to be a balance of long term intelligence to continue improvements and successful business endeavors.
