    I worked at Hertz full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good health benefits and 401k

    Cons

    No work-life balance cause you will work 55-60hrs/week, unrealistic sales goals set, bonuses are rarely paid out in a timely manner and when they are it is always less than what they told you it was going to be, the company has "cut expenses" so now certain branches don't even have the means to get oil changes, car washes done, buy basic supplies for the office. Vehicles generally have at least 50k miles on them and are in rough shape, yet when we get a bad review re: the quality of our vehicle we get penalized.
    When you get you become a branch manager you are salaried, which means an actual pay cut b/c you don't get paid OT, but you're still working 60 hrs/wk (which breaks down to ~$11/hr)

    Advice to Management

    Try to actually care about your employees, give them more support, re-think the pay scale (taking a pay cut as you get promoted makes no sense to me), be present, actually come in and run a branch every now and again so you see what your employees deal with on a daily basis

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

    Pros

    If you're in serious need of income, the base pay will help you pay your bills at the least.

    Cons

    Complete dishonestly with customers about products they most often dont need if they have car insurance. Cars are barely up to safety code. Managers are more concerned about revenue that customers safety in vehicles. Bare minimum training. If you're naturally deceptive and lazy, you will fit in perfect with the company. Tell customers and auto body shops several lies a day regarding car availability and cost of car rentals. Most branch managers are over worked and are on somw type of medication to keep them moving.

    Advice to Management

    Create products that actually benefit customers, do not encourage employees to mislead in order to make a sale. Provide applicable training.
