    I have been working at Hertz full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's better than being unemployed. You can run your operation like its your own business.

    Cons

    Hourly employees can't get OT which leaves management working 12+ hrs every day. Unrealistic expectations and bonuses are not paid as promised, in fact if you're doing well and hitting your goals they'll change the bonus plan altogether to keep from paying you what you've earned. Every location is short staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop working managers in the ground, we have a life too.

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

    Pros

    The Pros from this job are simple: Overtime and driving nice cars. It's very fast paced. You can be a manager trainee or train your manager depending on your location.

    Cons

    High employee turn-around is an understatement. you can easily get burnt out if you are not careful. Some slower locations set employees up for failure.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people who deserve it. Do not promote people who just kiss up to senior level management. Some people are put into locations which the managers aren't prepare to manage.

    Pros

    Great benefits, friendly work environment. (usually), potential of advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Hard to reach incintives, very stressful work days, job achievements seam more easily attainable and more appealing than they actually are.

    Advice to Management

    Find more professional ways to express the importance of making certain expectations and when mistakes are made. Positivity is much more understandable and produces more productive reponses from your employees.
