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

Pros

Great benefits from the company. Probably the best benefits package of any in the industry. Healthcare is top notch, retirement and other compensation is comparable to competitors.

Cons

They will work the manager to death. The first job of the manager is running the business, making sure that all the staff is performing to their peak potential, and foremost taking care of the customers. Hertz Equipment Rental believes that the manager's first duty is to complete spreadsheets and spend hours each week on useless conference calls. Take the job and you will realize that you should have went into sales with the company. The Branch Manager is expected to perform all of their duties plus those of others. The company promises the world but delivers the septic tank.

Advice to Management

Give the managers freedom to manage. Time spent in the office sitting in front of a computer filling out useless spreadsheets is a waste of time. Conference calls rehashing information just to hear yourself talk is a waste of everyone's time. Ask the managers what they need to be more efficient instead of having someone that has never done the job tell them what to do.

    Pros

    Quick growth. Pretty okay pay

    Cons

    Sales is the only thing that determines promotions. No management experience is required. Upper management is no help.

    I have been working at Hertz full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are amazing. Truly do work with great people.

    Cons

    Where does one start. Upper management running around like chickens with their heads cut off as the targets and goals are constantly changing. There is no one set purpose. They are great at moving the goalposts. Unrealistic expectations of branches when branches are extremely understaffed. Most issues with customers with see management throw the branch manager and the branch under the bus and repeatedly run you over. Nothing is ever good enough.

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out of the sand and be in touch with the realities of the branches. Always easy to dictate when you sit in an office all day on conference calls and not dealing with customers.
