    I worked at Hertz full-time

    Pros

    Every day is different and the days tend to go by pretty fast. If you like interacting with people, you have plenty of opportunities to do that. You also get to drive a lot of different cars and that helps you learn about what's best to recommend to people.

    Cons

    High-turnover - once people get into the job, they leave fast.
    It can get pretty chaotic with only a couple of employees running the branch.

    Get benefits. PTO, company car- free insurance and gas.

    Cons

    Very high turn over, most off airport locations short staffed

    Maybe higher floaters and can help stores that need assistance for staffing

    I have been working at Hertz full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An active and highly variable day.
    Get to go out and drive regularly (for better or worse)
    Occasional opportunity to make someones day.
    Get to work with cars. LOTS of cars.

    Cons

    You'll be cleaning cars. EVERYBODY does.
    Weather, you'll be in it. See above.
    Occasionally rude or irrate customers whom you had no part in ticking off, but who's flack you get to catch anyway. You tend to see customers on a bad day (right after a car accident).
    Highly variable local leadership.
    Lousy pay
    No work life balance. You come in because the team/branch needs you

    Advice to Management

    Pay and support your local branches more effectively. You're asking a lot of them for $12-13/hr
