Great experience, and a perfect way to interact with different cultures.
Lead Rental Agent (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – 1 June 2012
My job was to rent cars to business associates, locals, and tourists. I worked for a smaller office, so we didn't have the same perks as some offices located within the city. Besides renting cars, we sometimes had to pick up cars from other locations, put gas in the cars, and wash them as well. I dealt with guests who spoke and understood very little English, placing reservations for our local office as well as other desired locations, and any discrepancies regarding billing. There were only a few people that worked at this branch, so we all were able to work together. We were very close and were able to connect with each other both inside and outside of the workplace. The hardest part of the job were days when we weren't provided with the right cars for the reservations expected. It was hard to explain to people who prepaid and reserved cars months in advance that their car hasn't arrived yet, or the company couldn't provide it. The best part of the job, I believe, was meeting so many people from different states and countries, and finding out there are a lot of similarities between our cultures.
Human Resources Business Partner (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 4 April 2017
While I enjoyed my job at Hertz, there is a consistent culture of fear. They seem to terminate people without cause on a regular basis. People are constantly on edge, as employees with up to 30 years of service are regularly let go without reason.
Not the greatest job for long term, but great for short term.
VSA (Former Employee) – Enfield, NS – 4 February 2017
During my 2.5 years with the company I've learned that there is little-to-no room for advancement in the company, especially from the position I was in. I requested numerous times to be tried for other positions, and was told I would be. When push came to shove, nothing came out of it, and I wasn't even given the opportunity to attempt other positions. Pay per hour is low, but, there are benefits included with the job after 3 months. They will hire on a few members for the summer, but let them go after 2.5 months, no warning or anything. Just be careful.

Tripper (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 June 2016
Too many things to say, but I am not a part of management, so its none of my business. As a tripper, I drive clean cars from distribution to airport and bring back the dirty ones to distribution. It is an easy job and fun to work.

Territory Manager (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 19 April 2016
I couldn't ask for better management and employees. I was responsible for dealing with customer sales, customer rejections and signing new prospects. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the slow winter months. I am a person who needs to stay focused and busy year round, which unfortunately led to me leaving the company. I enjoyed the new challenges presented daily, as no two days were the same. Creative thinking is a must, as no two customer issues were ever the same. Very positive experience.
Meeting new people, facing new challenges
Very slow winter months, comparable to being laid off
