Started as a manager-in-training. In my two interviews, I was told the management training program was designed to get me to advance in 3-6 months. After 10 months at the company there was no sign of advancement so I decided to leave. Something they didn't mention in the interviews was how your career and salary at Hertz are based on your ability to sell the extra insurance.
Branch and upper management show no support to their employees. When I voiced my concerns about problems within the branch or area I was brushed aside. Daily, during busy seasons, cars are booked within the system that you don't have in your fleet. So, it's a daily scramble of trying to find cars or calling customers to cancel reservations.
My shifts were 10-11 hours a day, so there wasn't much family life outside of work. This job, in turn, wears you out quickly. They required a college education to be a manager-in-training when I started, but I'm not sure if this has changed. If you are fresh out of school and desperate for a job then this may be the way to go for a short time, because they were always desperate for new hires, at least in my area. Keep your eye out for another job with advancement opportunities though.
Got a quick paycheck fresh out of school
No breaks, terrible management and leadership
