Current Employee - Operations Manager

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.

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

    Pros

    There are a good people you'll work with.

    Cons

    -I was lied to about my starting wages by over $5,000 per year.
    -After starting I was lied to about pay increases and bonuses.
    -Long unrewarding hours. I'm use to working 60 hours per week in construction but long days at Hertz are much less rewarding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying to perspective employees to get them to start.

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

    Pros

    -Good for recent college grads with no work experience.
    -Company offers health benefits
    -...

    Cons

    -Usually understaffed
    -Reservation system is not sophisticated enough to prevent overbooking, leads to having to deal with irate customers who can't rent a car they reserved
    -Mid and upper level management only care about sales numbers, much less about the development of their employees
    -Old computers, lack of reliable IT support
    -Having to wash cars year-round in business attire
    -Long hours, low pay
    -Not a very professional environment (management will often swear at employees, yell at employees, etc.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better, increased morale will lead to higher productivity. Focus more on developing your employees skills and I'm certain your sales numbers will increase.
