    I worked at Hertz part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were friendly and informal atmosphere

    Cons

    The location for the office was/is horrible - a busy mini-strip-mall with a coffee shop and a burrito shop. Zero parking, zero workspace.

    Advice to Management

    Money-losing insurance contracts make no sense, limit the availability for regular customers.
    Most managers know this, are powerless to do anything.

    I worked at Hertz (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work at home, paid time off, paid holidays, overtime, your birthday is considered a holiday you get that day off with pay, the team is amazing, management really seems to care about you. The training classes were awesome they made everything seem so easy!

    Cons

    Only con is the people in the higher ups like the CEO they do crazy things that effect the little people like sales rep and causes us to get laid off because of "financial issues"

    Advice to Management

    Please get a CEO that knows what they are doing! Everything else is great.

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

    Pros

    Freedom to run the branch my way. Good way to earn business experience. Resources are available for almost any issue.

    Cons

    Not many quality employees which can get frustration at times. Cleaning cars in pants and a tie also isnt the greatest thing to do. My tie gets sucked up the vacume on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Higher up management should be more involved in employee management. Reward quality workers.

    Bad upper mgmt. they don't have a long term vision. Priorities are changing every week . They manage by fear.

    Advice to Management

    New CEO should get rid of all RVP-Directors. Let branch managers do their job in the field. Stop changing priorities.

    Pros

    You get a company car to drive and free gas.

    Cons

    Sale Representatives rip off the customers through deceptive and predatory sales techniques, while Upper Managers look the other way. Training is very unorganized. Lower Managers are expected to work 15 hrs + days and come in on your off days. The company treat their employees like their rental vehicles , TURN AND BURN. They treat their customers even worst by: adding extra charges, insurance products etc.

    Advice to Management

    Find your moral compass. Stop treating your employees like rental vehicles. Be more customer focuses vs creating a culture for crooks.

    Pros

    paycheck and bonus when things went well

    Cons

    its too many to mention

    Advice to Management

    when there is 4 CEO'S in 3 years this should open ALL EYES

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

    Pros

    Great benefits including company car and company phone. I have great leaders who support me and my decisions. Praise is awarded appropriately and plenty of busy work.

    Cons

    As any company we are performance driven which means those who cannot perform are performance managed out ONLY after given every opportunity to succeed. Maximizing profits often results in minimum staffing and in smaller locations puts a greater work load on management.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing that has not been addressed. This company has went through 3 CEO's in the past 4 years but with each CEO this company seems to be getting better and better

    Pros

    Always opportunities to move up the ladder.

    Cons

    Outdated technology and fixing things that don't need fixing, rather than focusing on bigger issues.
