    Advice to Management

    Screen the managers more. I work at the reagan airport location and some of your managers are just on a power trip. They talk down to you. Extremely condescending. Please listen to your associates! The pay is low and not worth all the craziness especially if you have to work until 2am
    Fix the commission. We only get a payout if we make a certain amount of revenue per day. If you don't sale anything it continuously lowers the sales revenue per dag
    Y until you get below the amount they require for a payout. Made 25, 000 dollars in one month and saw nothing of the money. When brought to the notice of management they offer 2%. This company constantly brags about the contracts and millions they make but pays low and commission is hard to make if your location gets a lot of third party reservations.

    I worked at Hertz full-time

    Pros

    The overtime and discounts associated with the position are beneficial. Management training program with consistent promotions look great on resume. Great health insurance and 401k.

    Cons

    Lack of coherence and communication within upper management. Impossible to have everything you need to succeed. Expected to do more with less, with no guidance. Long hours. Recent 'management reconstruction' leaving many in DC area with no possible chance of further promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Provide the vehicles and tools necessary for employees to succeed. Revise the reservation system and go on off sell more often when necessary.

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

    Pros

    Get to manage your own business. Learn a lot about cars.

    Cons

    There might not be much of a growth opportunity. Waste of a college degree. After a year or two, growth is relatively static. Vacuum your tie all the time. Worked 6 or 7 times a week. Too much pressure to sell products customers don't need.

    Advice to Management

    More positive reinforcement. Increase base pay. Get newer cars.
