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

Pros

free gas and car for my role as a Location Manager

Cons

Sr. Management takes no ownership and likes to point fingers
Awful hours (they told me on my interview I would work SOME nights and SOME weekends but that actually meant I worked EVERY night shift which was 4PM-until the last plane landed which could be 4AM and EVERY weekend). They basically lied to my face in the interview. If I wanted a night-manager role, I would have applied for one.
They constantly overbook and then Sr. management gets angry with the location manager on duty when they run out of cars for reservations. They don't care that you have angry customers in front of you at 2AM who had rentals; somehow their inability to properly track how many cars they can rent online is your fault
No solid training-they just throw you in without a life jacket. They certainly don't care about their employees
For the hours I worked, I was never compensated for overtime. Seems like because they let you take home one of their poorly up-kept cars and cover your gas they are entitled to abuse your time there.

Advice to Management

Support your staff rather then blaming them for your errors and make some unannounced visits so the management that is there will be caught first hand. The only employees you have that stay longer then a year are ones who are too lazy to look elsewhere.

    On occasion your time management skills are challenged, but this only makes us and the company stronger.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to report.
