Pros: Some great people, Job can be fun
Cons: Insurance benefits, long hours, Upper management, inconsistent goals
Continuous - mico-management from Area or General Manager that come from other sectors of business, because they sometimes did not hire from within for uppermanagement.
Losing consistent Market share in Airport market and Off-airport market to Enterprise and in Management infinite wisdom raised rates to "compete" , because we have "nicer" cars.
Only thing that is keeping they afloat in certain areas is State Farm business in off-airport markets.
Now in some areas of the country Hertz off-airport is reducing hours at stores, while Enterprise is expanding hours on Saturday and Sundays.
Upper-management is trying to run Off-airport locations like they are airport locations,
Reservations , are not honored, because we were consistently told that we can make more money at airport locations , so SUVs and Vans were moved to airport locations, so anyone with these types of reservations in summer or busy weeks were called and in advance and were told reservation would not be honored.
We were never able to hire college students , because we could not or would not match the salaries that Enterprise offered, so we never were able to get good or great candidates to fill openings at locations. Hiring pool was very shallow.
Branch Managers are grossly underpaid in comparison to Enterprise Managers.
Change at Hertz will never happen because upper management moves at the speed of Hertz....
