I have been working at Hertz

Pros

Great people who are all focused on succeeding, freedom to do or try new initiatives, always learning and many options for personal development through courses, projects and new programs

Cons

Not much guidance provided, learn-as-you-go culture, too many initiatives that constantly change, overly strong focus on stock price and financials, need a better work/life balance program

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ask for feedback and recommendations from the employees who deal directly with customers. Pick one or two key initiatives and stick with them for at least a year, if not longer.

    Pros

    company car and fuel everything else sucks.

    Cons

    everything. HR only looks out for the company. Fear Based employment. Company creates a write up file on everyone and then only fire the ones they don't like. Working in chicago gets you promoted. If you don't work in chicago then you suck. bonus checks are on regular checks so you only end up with half. numbers are fixed. no explanations on operating statements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because the numbers look good doesn't mean that your Area Managers are doing their jobs.

    I have been working at Hertz full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The opportunity to learn how to run a business and the advancement opportunity is great.
    Fortune 500 company so if you post on a resume that you did their program for even a year would look very good.
    Get to drive nice cars.
    Meet a lot of interesting people.
    Overall good opportunity for a recent grad with a liberal arts or business degree.

    Cons

    Clean cars.
    Very long hours 55+
    Average weekly pay about $500 after taxes for 55 to 60 hours of work.
    Management will place you anywhere depending on their needs.
    Angry customers at the counter always complaining about something.
    Customers don't treat you well.
    Very dirty offices with old and slow computers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay and the overall working conditions of the offices.
    Hire more porters to clean the cars.
    Don't require a college degree for the mangement trainee job because you don't need it.
