Work environment was positive. Only complaint was management taking advantage of over-working at times.
Manager Trainee (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – June 26, 2018
During my time at Hertz I learned effective sales skills and strategies. I learned how to deal with difficult customers and turn bad situations into positive ones. The hardest part of the job was definitely the company not having enough resources with the amount of cars that had available in order to accommodate the amount of reservations they had.
Car Detailer (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 18, 2018
I was a temporary Car detailer at the Phoenix Airport, Very fast paced, clean one car move on to the next so-on. They are in a Labor Union so workplace culture was a little different in regards to Vacation, hours worked etc Vacations were sonority driven and most of the overtime was Mandatory 3-6 extra hours either at the start or at the end. Management was fine. Easy Job long hours with low pay.
Transporter (Former Employee) – El Paso, Tx – October 18, 2018
Everything was great until they started to change everything and let go of great management and went third party on transporters, they came and started firing everyone out of nowhere and for no reason at all
Transporter (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – October 18, 2018
The only decent managers we had they fired and the ones that were left is one of the worst I've worked with, you as a team member have to do management job with a BAD salary, abuse to team members is their main problem. The only good thing is most of the team members that work there are amazing and help each other since management does nothing to help. It was a decent place to work at until they brought down a temporary gm and he cleaned house with the decent people that were left in that specific location at the airport
A typical day at work would be to get a tablet from the booth, direct traffic and close contracts. The management trained me to the level where they could confidently leave me to the task and would be available to answer any of my questions.
TNC Branch Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 17, 2018
Hertz is a high paced environment. There are always more goals to accomplish. Responsibility is given until it cannot be taken. Vacation, sick days, personal days or floating holidays are wasted. Hertz expects you to use them or lose them. Must watch your back from others. Working off the clock on business gets no attention, just keep working if employees are not hourly they continue to add more work. So many people cannot handle the difficulty of the job and quit because they want Branch Managers to do too much work.
Manager Associate (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 16, 2018
A good place to start and gain experience. Extremely demanding clientele! Shoe string budget "do more with less' mentality! Staffing and high turnover rate is a constant struggle. It's a promises promises organization. Also behind the times in terms of tehhnology.
Rental agent (Former Employee) – Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Island – October 16, 2018
A typical day at work would be very fast paced. I learned all of things about the company. Management was extremely nice and corporative. The hardest part about the job was when there were all of customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was how all of the works were comfortable with each other and they would help each other.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Waukegan, IL 60085 – October 16, 2018
On a typical day we were constantly moving an always doing something, there were serveral different things for us to do throughout the day. One of the things that I didn't like about working for Hertz was that during my time there I was bounced around to several different locations and didn't have just one home base.
meeting intersting people, driving several really nice cars
Location Manager (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 16, 2018
Hertz has great perks as a manager but the company consistently puts it's team through unnecessary stress. Maximizing profits as a business is understandable but to the expense of it's customers is questionable. This leads the management team to be treated poorly by their customers as the managers are the face of the company.
if you like to be over worked this is the job for you
Sales and Service Associate (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 15, 2018
this job is terrible no raises. no one is willing to help you with anything job promotion related. customers are hard to deal with because hertz refuses to update their website. i could go on and on about how bad this job is.
Assistant/Manager (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, NC – October 12, 2018
The job is very demanding and can be stressful. It is very fat paced. You must be high tolerant with customers who can be very intolerable. This is a very high energy job that demands a lot from it's employees.
