"At Hertz, we believe the only long-term, sustainable competitive advantage is a company's culture which is shaped by its people. We are building a culture based on many of the values promoted by the military - leadership, teamwork, planning, execution, hard work, and the drive to succeed," commented Mark P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "As a company we appreciate that our veterans transitioning to civilian careers will be great frontline employees and managers for Hertz, and they will help shape our culture. Our Hertz for Heroes program and the new military recruiting portal are dedicated to supporting our veterans and bringing them into the Hertz family. We have many attractive career opportunities which veterans will find appealing, from front-line customer facing positions to management roles at our rental locations and our corporate offices. We provide wide-ranging training and learning programs to give our employees the tools they need to succeed and advance their careers."
