A good company
Assistant Branch Manager (Former Employee), Clayton, NcDecember 16, 2014
The company is great, however there is a severe lack in organization within the Raleigh 'pool'. The company offers great benefits and has more positives than negatives in my opinion.

They do care about their employees' and they offer incentives and rewards and recognition.

This is a company where it is easy to progress and grow with ample knowledge – more... within the company. – less

branch manager trainee
Branch Manger Trainee (Current Employee), Eagan, MNDecember 14, 2014
Cons: loong hours, bad pay, poor manegement
Horrible place to work, manegment is horrible no structure to this company, pay is bad, no room for growth in the company they base it all off of sales witch you can't sell protection on a car everyone has insurance already. Hertz is very very unorganized and always runs out of cars. Customers yell at you on the daily for running out of cars even though – more... they had their resavation 3 months in advance I work 730 to 530 every day and I'm not allowed to take a brake longer than 10 mins, there is no work/life balance all you do is work. Hertz is not a good place to work!!! – less

I thought it was a secure job
Reservations/Sales (Current Employee), Mobile, AlDecember 11, 2014
I've worked for Hertz for 2 1/2 years and there has been some very drastic changes over the past few months. The most recent change was earlier this week when the entire domestic sales dept, the dept that answers when u call to check prices, make or change a reservation, or just for general questions, was being transferred to an overseas company and – more... the entire call center in Mobile, Al and OKC will not have their job as of January. They said we can APPLY for jobs in other Dept's but there's no way to place everyone so a lot of us will no longer have jobs. They roadside service dept was transferred to them a couple of months ago. I am very disappointed. I can understand if the company went bankrupt or something but to just give our jobs to someone else for cheaper pay, I'm talking 1,000s of people just isn't right. Honestly I don't know if I even want to apply for another department. That trust is gone and I don't want to work for a company that does things like this. – less

Productive and fun workplace with new cars to drive everyday
Assistant Branch Manager (Former Employee), Santa Rosa, CADecember 9, 2014
Pros: drive new cars, get paid overtime
Cons: required overtime and car washing
The CSR position is fairly predictable when it comes to the duties of the car rental salesman with a couple additions to the requirements. The CSR will be expected to wash cars in their mandatory dress clothes as well as work anywhere between 10-20 hours overtime.

The overtime stacks up pretty easily though, especially while driving to different locations – more... to open/close.

If you are driven by making easy up-sales as ad-on services and don't mind working a moderate amount of overtime then Hertz Car Rentals may be the perfect fit. – less

Virtual Sales Representative (Current Employee), AT HOMEDecember 8, 2014
Pros: great benefits and flexability
Cons: need open availablity and no life
Great job and benefits however must have open availability. Shift changes often and hours do not allow you to have a life even with your spouse. If you are single or retired this is defiantly for you.

Appreciative but honest about environment
Branch Manager Trainee (Current Employee), gaDecember 4, 2014
Pros: you have a job
Cons: no work/life balance and low pay
In life take 100% responsibility for your life!
I am very appreciative of the opportunity to work here at Hertz. You will definitely learn how to deal with customer complaints and aggression. However be prepared to work 6 days out of the week and be prepared to work 9-10hrs average. It doesnt seem bad but often times you are alone manning the phones, – more... customers, keeping cars cleaned, and other adminstrative duties. The commission checks are really low compared to other sale jobs but it just depends on the area you are at. I did enjoy my coworkers which were best part about the job but people cant continue to work 6 days a week with hardly anytime off. management was ok just inconsistent with words and actions. I did learn alot but that will be totally up to you to learn nothing will be handed to due to everyone being too busy dont take it personally you will understand once you are in there shoes. – less

Horrible hours. If you think this is a sales carrier it is not. You will be an hourly employee which is pathetic at best. Turnover is through the roof.
