    I worked at Hertz full-time

    Pros

    Solid company with solid reputation. You can develop in your career and meet some great people. Good benefits. Lots of vacation time. Overall not a bad place to work, depending on what division you are in.

    Cons

    You are working for a large global corporation, so at the end of the day, you are just another name on a spreadsheet to them. Technology is very far behind, and the projects to update it seemed to be poorly managed. Not a lot of transparency from upper management as far as what is really going on. Disappointing that it only took a month of revenue losses to panic and fire thousands of people.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits for you and your family. PTO and sick days. 40% off of employee rentals and you will meet great people that can lead to future relationships.

    Cons

    Where should I start? You're told you're going to be just a front desk agent but that's a lie. You are a driver, car cleaner ((in extreme weather), roadside assistance, and mechanic at some point. You're not given the proper tools to he successful especially if your BM doesn't kiss upper management butt. Your first month you're presented with the empty promise of "you sell, you become a BM" I personally witnessed that lie. Seen countless of qualified employees passed over because the Area Manager has a personal friendship with another employee. The Branch Managers are no better. You constantly being encouraged to perform fradulent activities on (walk ups especially) contracts just so the Branch numbers can look good for THEIR bonus. When you don't obliged the BM would act differently towards you and will try to throw you under any bus they can. Will talk behind their employees back to other employees and other management. Bonus structure changed so much I couldn't keep up, when addressed no one could give you a solid answer on why. Computers are slow leading to you constantly apologizing to already agitated customers. NEVER enough fleet but always encouraged to take on as many reservations you can in case if a potential no show......that never happened.
