    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Hertz (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros. Anything they tell you in the interview is a lie.

    Cons

    It is a lie. It is nearly impossible to earn decent commissions - the upper managers will get all the $, provided they even get any. You have to have a bachelor's degree - to stand outside cleaning cars in subzero weather and jockeying cars from place to place.

    Advice to Management

    Your whole company is run terribly. Major over haul is needed.

    Pros

    Great advancement opportunity based on performance and not just how long you have been in your current position

    Cons

    Finding the right people to go above and beyond to make the company number one choice

    Advice to Management

    Continue to change to keep up with the newer technology world

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    never have to stay in the office, get to see and talk to different people everyday.

    Cons

    pay. hours. taking away overtime as a punishment. making you work overtime on a friday night as a punishment until 8pm. too many 11 and 12 hr days in a row. no work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    don't roll your eyes at employees, treat a new employee like a NEW employee they don't know anything about the business so you have to start at square 1 and not expect them to know. don't throw car keys at us. don't smoke in the office during or after business hours.
