Current Employee - Branch Manager in Jacksonville, FL (US)

I have been working at Hertz full-time for more than a year

Pros

There is a great sense of camaraderie and if you are at the right store you can bonus upward of 15K quarterly.

Cons

Perpetually understaffed so Branch Managers will often work 60 hours per week which can be frustrating when your store is not bonusing or you are cutting staffs hours to meet OT goals. HIGH emphasis on sales with sometimes unrealistic goals-- can lead to some shady practices

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cutting corners to save money short term will cause some of the best managers to leave

    I worked at Hertz full-time

    Pros

    Managers get company car (if one is left at the end of the day)
    There is always something that needs to be done (not going to get bored, just burnt out)
    Most off airport locations are closed on Sunday

    Cons

    Theme of "its not what you've done but for me but what will you do next?"
    Upper management try to operate a business a level or more removed from the actual work.
    Flavor of the day constantly changing.
    You're treated differently by how you perform- regardless of economic conditions/considerations.
    Very little instruction if you have any question- management says they're there to help but won't answer calls or instruct you to "figure it out".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider your employees are your most valuable asset. You make all decisions based on "shareholder interest" and end up hurting your employees and operations badly. It's hard to build a business and take market share from competitors when you're restricted from using all tools in the box. Time to tell your shareholders to back off and ensure things will be ok in the long run. Too many decisions are made for the short term outlook.

    I worked at Hertz full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Cheap healthcare is nice, marketing is fun.

    Cons

    Get written up fairly often, vacuum cars with dress clothes on, Management Trainee position is not management training, its sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure HLE staffing to differentiate: Managers, Salesmen, Drivers/Auto Detailers.
