  1. Default Hertz Administrative Center

    In today's Daily Oklahoman they said that Hertz was moving out of the facility in the Quail Springs area.
    Does anyone have any idea where the people are going?

    Their HQ is in Estero, FL, so maybe there? Or over to the newly repainted and quite bright data center on the NW Expwy?

    I had heard they may have already found a buyer for the Quail Springs property:







    They have consolidated employees to their property on NW Expressway, which was not previously fully occupied:

    The consolidation is scheduled for the first week of May. It was earlier scheduled for the first of April but was moved back.


    Yep, moving to the worlds largest Waffle House.....smh

    I checked with some friends and they told me that they were moving into the Hertz Technology Facility (NW Expressway and MacArthur). I'm amazed that they can consolidate three major facilities into one. The last time I was in the Quail Springs facility (HAC) all of their floors were full. Where will they fit into the original data center?

    Lots of reservation agents work from home, layoffs of both Hertz and IBM folks at the data center, and probably some moving of folks to FL means they'll all fit. When I left over 5 years ago, it was about 1/3 empty and more layoffs have happened since then.

    C.T. They are moving to an open concept combing 4 groups into one big combined area. A lot of employees are NOT happy about this. Also, some of the groups, not too much, is relocating to Estero. The Data Center will be stuffed like a bunch of sardines.

    My wife talked to a lady she knows that still works there. She is VERY happy she took a severance package and left a few years ago. She says she would hate what they’re planning.

    They could free up some space by taking out the fitness center they put in a few years ago in building 1.

    MadMonk,
    Apparently you are a former Hertz employee. Do I know you? I worked for Hertz (off and on) from 1973 till I retired 2004.

    Yessir, I was there in a couple different capacities; the last was in IT from 2006-2010. Was a facilities grunt for a brief run ending in '94.

    MadMonk,
    I was IT the whole time. I worked on the reservation system and my main responsibility was the rate system. I also was responsible for the emergency road system. We probably ran onto each other sometime.

    They must have gotten a great deal on that paint after the Country Inn & Suites down the road got painted gray.

    This has to be surprising for the people who worked for Hertz prior to the early 2000s. Seems like management was almost obsessed with keeping a low profile in Oklahoma City.

    Maybe it's "the last hurrah" for Hertz in Oklahoma. I will say, John Hertz started Yellow Cab Company and went to specialists to select a color for his cars and the Hertz yellow was what he was told would attract consumers. However I don't think he ever painted any rental cars or buildings with that color. I'm not sure why they painted at all. The rusted steel always looked good. Conservative, not an attention getter but it fit in well with the area. Anybody know how many positions are being transferred to Florida?

    I don't believe too many, but there was a small layoff this morning.

    Bellaboo,
    Any idea what functions? I'm assuming it was a group of people from the same department.

    It was a random smattering through out. Not many, but typically old timers. The Mrs only knew one person from Fleet who had been there for 32 years. BTW, she's retiring in April after 41 and a half years.... time to go.
