    I worked at Hertz full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay at hertz is unlimited, you are paid for the job you are doing plus commission for bringing in sales in different locations. The hours are good for people that don’t have children.

    Cons

    Overtime- there is a lot! If you are low man on the totem pole, you are stuck.
    Union position- if you do not know the union contract word for word front to back, you could potentially get screwed.

    Advice to Management

    Empathy, sympathy and back up your employees to the customers.

    I worked at Hertz full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company car usage, good benefits.

    Cons

    Hard work doesn't pay off unless you get noticed. Reluctance to transfer to another location may lead to your dismissal.

    Advice to Management

    Observe all your manager that work with/for you. Too many manager take advantage of your work and take credit for it.

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

    Pros

    Free company car. Free gas. Not micromanaged. Co-workers are nice and warm. They do Offer overtime. 3 weeks vacation,personal days and sick days a year.

    Cons

    Manager incentive sucks!! Managers train employees to sell but the employees end up making more money than managers. Culture is going down into a ditch. Never having cars or people to clean them. Seniority sucks. You have to wait for someone to quit, get fires or die to get a good shift. (Waited 3 years to get weekends off) Ultimate choice is a weak business idea.

    Advice to Management

    Change that stupid incentive. Make it more achievable for everyone. Pay you’re managers more or increase incentives if not many people are going to leave. Hertz is voted one of the worst companies to work for.

    I have been working at Hertz full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Account Managers receive a salary, vehicle, phone and laptop. Additional, you receive most holidays off and within 60 days you can receive vacation and 401k benefits. Hertz also provides excellent health care coverage.

    Cons

    You have to deal with cranking customers and at times long hours. Working at hertz isn’t for the faint of heart.

    Advice to Management

    Better competitive base pay in major cities like San Francisco.
