Good place to work
F&I Manager (Former Employee) –  IllinoisJuly 20, 2018
Not enough inventory to hit goals each month. Senior management needs to have more experience in retail car sales or listen to the store manager's ideas to increase volume. My store manager was excellent with great ideas that unfortunately were not implemented.
Pros
Great store manager
Cons
Need more retail automotive experience in senior management

Stressful environment
Vehicle Service Attendant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 20, 2018
Really stressful environment with a lot hard work as well as problem solving. Work-life balance is really difficult since their hours genereally don’t line up with what you may want to do. The people that’s been there longer usually get the schedules
Pros
Discounts on rentals
Cons
Bad healthcare; hours aren’t that good; tough schedule

Transporter (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 20, 2018
Most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people daily. Being able to offer assistance in getting customers to their locations in a friendly and timely manner.

It was important to stay focused and keep a positive attitude no matter how negative the employees were around you.

I learned that the car rental business is huge and could be a lot more profitable if organized and clear policies and procedures were in place.

The hardest part of the job was there was no established guidelines nor clear direction of how to carry out the task.
Pros
There were free pizza or barb-q days if you happen to be scheduled to work on those days.
Cons
No salary increases. You could increase your hours.

My Time with Hertz
Manager Assistant (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 19, 2018
Hertz is a great job for a young kid with management and communication skills. I love the job for the most part. The only trouble I have with it is the pay rate is very low and noncompetitive. I have learned a lot there and i am ready to progress elsewhere
Pros
Culture and work environment is great
Cons
Pay rate

All in all, a good place to start. But I needed a new challenge. I learned a lot and had great co-workers. But it was time to go down a different route
Pros
Free car, gas, and insurance
Cons
Left arm of the company doesn't talk to the right arm of the company

Horrible job

The job itself is not worth the stress and duties performed. The job also doesn't pay well. I wouldn't recommend this job to a homeless person. seriously...

Not an Ideal
Gold Choice CSR (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 17, 2018
I have to say, that working for Hertz beyond a year is not worth it. The "opportunity for growth" is just the company giving a significantly higher amount of responsibility with a 50 cent or $1 pay raise to show for it. We are always understaffed, always overworked, and told to work different locations at the drop of a dime without much notice all because of mismanagment. The pay is not equivalent to the hard work most employees here put in. Not to mention, they'll work you 6, sometimes 7 days a week, depending on your location if you do not complain and remind them at the time of hiring, you were told you would get 2 days a week off like most work places. You'll burn out quick, look elsewhere for employment. Most are great to work with. 0 work life balance"

Nice culture for learning. Good people to work with. Small gym on site. There would be a few activities outside of work for team building. Overall a decent place to work.

Tough Job
Management Trainee (Current Employee) –  DaytonJuly 16, 2018
Hertz is chronically understaffed. Which leads to most if not all of the problems the company faces. Some of those problems include: dirty cars and unhappy customers who are not attended to promptly. If they would take the time to hire qualified employees they would be better off but they will settle for anyone who puts in an application. Then they find themselves back in the same situation and it's a vicious cycle.
Pros
Job Security
Cons
healthcare, overworked, underpaid, understaffed
