    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.

    Working for Hertz was the worst experience of my life

    Former Employee - Location Manager II  in  DFW, TX (US)
    Former Employee - Location Manager II in DFW, TX (US)

    I worked at Hertz full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The only Pros to working at Hertz were coworkers (most of them anyway)

    Cons

    To many hours
    To little pay
    Senior management does not care about their employees. You are just a number to them, and they can replace you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your staff, get to know what turns their wheels. Stop using negative reinforcement to get your employees to meet their sales goals. Unfortunately the opposite will happen most of the time, they wont want to do the work for you. Pay your employees more, give raises, and stop changing the bonus plan so that it is to difficult to achieve.
