Began working for Hertz in 1987 at TF Green Airport in Warwick, RI started cleaning cars at $5.45 an hour. I worked my way up from VSA to Senior Location Manager II in 2006 and stayed in that role with 4 managers under me and 100 employees. In 2007, Hertz was sold by Ford Motor Co. to Carlyle Group and everything systematically changed and got worse. It got to the point that I had a title but it meant nothing, you were not managing anything or anyone, you were trying to survive the day, the week and month, on a monthly basis. I took a severance package buyout in 2011.

Pros and Cons
Car privileges, plenty of vacation time, good support from all departments and locations.
Last GM was horrible

Worked at hertz for 2 years as a A tech working in cars, was promised OEM training and raises multiple times. Did not get any raises while working there and never had any training for learning the new vehicles. Upper management had no idea what was going on most of the time and were always freaking out about numbers, always got a pay check though so that was cool, i left because they promised increase in pay but never followed through and would not buy updated tools and software to support new vehicle, expected the mechanics to fix everything with a flat blade screw driver and a generic obd 2 scan tool.

Pros and Cons
Payment on time and regular work
No support for new technologies and they treated the mechanics like idiots.

There are so much you can learn but you need to accept one thing if u are willing to put long hours and six days a week then this is the place for you secondly you need to understand that all your hard work and long hours will be redeemed even if u left one day early that too putting 10 hours for shift and doing all you can do.

Pros and Cons
Free car and gas
No career growth unless you kiss the —
