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.
CUSTOMER SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport – 29 September 2017
At first I loved going in to work fir Hertz, but management isn't around all the time when we need them, one of them has treats me like an idiot since I first started and hasn't been very nice towards me and has made it apparent. We've lost a lot of employees due to not being paid enough for what we do, being verbally abused by clients sometimes physically and management not helping or never taking the side of the employee.
long hours, high stress environment, low pay, never have consistent hours( can change without notice)
Customer Service Representative (CSR) (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 August 2017
No room for opinions for low level staff. Constant changes in rules for everyone because on the behavior of one or two employees. Constant feeling of a fear tactics to control employees. All while upper management is unaware of how staff are treated, and staff is to afraid to speak otherwise.
CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTAVE (Current Employee) – Halifax Harbour, NS – 3 August 2017
company policy of not having reserved cars available causes frequent customer dis satisfaction. very dated in house reservation software has a steep learning curve and no training is provided. training for all other aspects of working at hertz is extensive 1-2 weeks for a CSR.
Driver (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 26 July 2017
One of the most easiest and straight forward jobs in the world. Big global company with ample room for movement in the organization. Ability to drive brand new vehicles and go cross boarder into the U.S.A. If you like driving then this job is for you.
company advancement, perks, discounts, ease of job
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.

I enjoyed working with hertz because it was just a small staff that worked well together.
