Work at GHQ. Tried to login today and all my access is gone. Haven’t heard anything from my leader though. Anyone else having the same issue?
I’ve been reading of massive layoffs in US as a sort of purge. When will this happen in Hertz Europe?! No changes for a long time even if Leadership is cr-p. I have a few names if you need hints!
Branding Marketing TA is a JOKE!
Money wasted on traveling and hiring events. Cut the Branding Team, it’s not needed.
TA GET OUT NOW!
Branding team will be doing majority of recruiting and so will hiring managers. Recruiters start looking now
Any idea on where the layoffs are at today?
This is getting unbearable
Several colleagues who left were not replaced. All their work was distributed to us who are still there and the pressure is enormous. Everyone is afraid of what will happen if someone else leaves. How long does management think it can go on like... — read more

Hertz has little regard for employees
Their main concern is making money for their highly paid corporate and Human Resources employees. If you line the leadership team up, you will undoubtly see a strong profile resembulance. They look very similar and act like stepford wives. They do... — read more
This management is incapable of change
Every time I hear about Hertz, I think of the multitude of articles on the failed ERP implementation. Has c-suite not learned their lesson? The answer is a resounding NO. As long as we have the same leadership at the top, nobody should expect to... — read more
Instead of improvements, this company is taking steps backwards, someone said it very well in one of the posts. There are more and more people who have given up all hopes that things will change for the better... Isn't that sad?
CFO to step down
Here we go again......
So we are being told daily to cut cost. We have to cut wages. Reduce staff hours. No bonuses. And now the blast on social media several management team members posing with the Porsche race car Hertz has sponsored!!!! Several millions of dollars spent... — read more
Horrific restructure and communication
I’ve never seen such poor communication and decision making as what has happened since the restructure. Change in leadership has devalued the culture and integrity the company once had. Promotions do not happen no matter how skilled you are. Layoffs... — read more

Layoffs are coming in small waves to avoid the warn act requirements so it does not affect the brand value to the consumer. Always be prepared and get your ducks in a row.
Harsh reality more layoffs
This round of layoffs is painful. We hired so many people i the last 90 days just to let them go. They barely finished all their training. Shows you how bad the senior leaders are.
I was just hired in August as a manager and then in two weeks, laid off. Everything was going good but i am not sure what could be the case? But i got to keep my car for another 2 weeks along with some severance. Assuming nothing was wrong from my... — read more
What a disaster. Customers don’t want them, locations don’t want them. We can’t even charge them efficiently. How’s it going with the EV’s at other locations? Predicting another Hertz fiasco with this initiative.
