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 Management

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

    Pros

    HLE (Hertz local editions) locations have nights and usually weekends off
    Good experience running a business
    Potential for fast promotion (based on sales numbers)
    Face-paced environment, never boring to say the least

    Cons

    Long hours with no set-aside time for breaks and lunches (take em when you can get em)
    Phones ring off-the-hook, dealing with everything from reservations to billing issues
    As a branch manager, you are held accountable for sales from staff that doesn't work for you. i.e. Body shops staff rent cars but don't sell, dragging your numbers down but there is nothing you can really do about it. I have been told straight-up "It's not my job to sell your insurance".

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting based solely on sales numbers. while most branch managers are good there are some that are terrible. Also, if the entire area is selling at a certain level and one person is selling twice as high, they are probably gaming the system to get those numbers (very easy to do I've seen it many times). However, this is often overlooked just because high sales numbers look good on reports and that's all that senior management looks at.
