Poorly managed in Canada...Your really have to question the Standards that are in place by Upper Management. Some people are in positions that they are not really qualified to be in. They are in them by the wrong reasons.

They are a great company to work for once you get to upper management. Starting out at the bottom will make you earn your stripes at this company. It's well worth it once you make it to upper management.
Rental Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 9 October 2015
Oversee day to day activities, inventory management, logistics, getting jobs completed. Assisting employees make decisions, solving issues pertaing to work and employee issues. The most enjoyable part of the job is having a customer acknowledge an employees performance on their quality and quantity of their work. The hardest part of the job is getting an employee to understand their mistake, but to learn from it and move on to NOT have it happened again, but ask questions if uncomfortable with making a decision.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Moncton New brunswick – 30 July 2015
Opening and closing contracts with clients. I have learn that everyone has different way of looking at things. With the company changing from a family own business to a corporate company it has a lot of differences. Meeting all kinds of new people from all over the world makes it more fun.
This is a horrible place to work. This company is a total joke. The management are a disorganized bunch of clowns and there is no job security, or benefits. You can expect minimum wage. They try to undercut you every chance they get. Morale among employees is non-existant. I dont know how this company hasn't gone belly up with the way its run, and by the people who run it.
Easy, brainless work
Low salary, low class people to work with / for, low class company
Driver (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – 7 June 2015
I would get to work around 7:30am, find out if I have a regualr school run in the morning. If it was a yes i would find out what else what all needed of me for the day; if I wasnt needed for a morning run I would check to see if I had any charters for the day. Many times I would end up working in the office doing computers & paperwork. I learned how to operate the computers, the account, who takes care of payments. My co-workers are a great group of people, always friendly. The hardest part of my job was not knowing if I am going to have work for a couple days as Im a spare driver. The most enjoyable part is working with the schools and the kids.
Simple hours, & freedom during the day if your not doing charters.
Not enough hours for a single mom with no help from anywhere else.

-Typical day at work involved conversing with anyone that even just happened to walk into our store. -Getting along with the customers and offering all our services in the kindest manner. -Informing the customers of their available choices in Cars and Value packages. -Walking the customers around the cars and showing them the features of the vehicle. -Attending calls and assisting the customers. -Management was a bit reckless and irresponsible. -Hardest part of the job was coordinating with the Main Fleet location to organize cars for customers.
Good place to work and learn from entry level as lots of opportunities and growth

City Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 September 2014
At Hertz Canada i was able to learn and grow through the Company . I started as a Fleet Control clerk, and finished as the Manager of a large territory and all it's related operations. I learned so much about people , business growth , and financial management , all as a result of working hard , being honest and positive , and always supporting my Superiors , as well as my specific Team. The hardest part of the job was trying to accomodate customers expectations in over booked situations. The best part of the job was growing personally , and as a manager alongside so many great coworkers.
fair compensation, company car
business success limited by limited fleet availability
Productive and good place to learn customer service skills
Counter Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 July 2014
a typical day at work requires a lot of fast-paced work, it requires u to be quick and efficient.
what i have learned from this job is even if your hired for a certain position u should still try to learn everyones roll, so if the person in an other appointed position needs help, you are able to assist.
co-workers where amazing ambitious individuals
Management was good not great.
the hardest part of the job is ,the lack of communication sometimes very rarely between workers.
the most enjoyable part of the job is satisfying the customers the best way we can
A fun place to work everyday comes with new challenges
Manager Associate (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 26 June 2014
Scheduled and reviewed car fleet inventory and rented this out according to car reservations. Learned to always be flexible and and adaptable. Company management is always focused on results not only in terms of profitability,but customer satisfaction and return business always a priority. With my co-workers we always help each other out in terms of sharing of resources, information and opportunities. Hardest part of the job are surprise last minute car reservations and this is where ones resourcefulness and problem solving come in handy. At the end of the day knowing that you have satisfied your customers to the best of your ability.
