    Interview

    Once they do the phone interview to qualify you what they really want is some one with sales experience and great personality. They'll ask you some basic questions like why do you want to work here, tell me about your sales experience etc. Computer or car knowledge just has to be basic because they will want to train you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Avis Budget Group (Raleigh, NC) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by email to call in to recruiter for 10-20 minute phone interview. I followed those steps and spent about 15 minutes on phone interview with Recruiter which went well. I was then scheduled for a face to face interview with Airport Manager which would take place a few days later. My appointment was for 4pm and arrived at 330pm, walked inside of office to find that the associates behind the counter was busy so I assumed a seat. At 3:50 I was able to speak to someone and told this person I was there for an interview, immediately I was passed on to three people until the Operations Manager attempted to research what was going on. At this point, I waited until she came out and asked me to step in the back and told me that the Manager had left for the day and they had no interviews scheduled. I proceeded to show her the email confirmation on my phone and she was baffled and apologized for the mix-up. She took down my name and number and told me that she would give the manager my info to re-schedule. I remained poised throughout this very unprofessional fiasco whereas I didn't have one person ask me if I needed any help the entire time I was there leading up to me approaching them. The following day I called the recruiter number that's provided and spoke to someone explaining what had transpired and no one never called me to re-schedule or follow-up. This incident was enough for me to NOT want to work for a company that schedules interviews without communicating with the interviewer and no follow-up.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Avis Budget Group (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    Very quick to set up interview, about 30 minutes long process. The manager of the branch was doing it himself he was polite, fun, genuinely interested in ideas or facts about myself. Mostly consisted on questions about yourself and how you'd fit within the company. Best question was how would I use this job to take steps toward my actual dream job.

    Interview

    The whole process has been a giant waste of time, read this before you apply.

    The way you apply is online and are then asked to do an hour long online assessment which consists mostly of what you would do in various customer service situations. I passed this then was sent and email to call a 800 number for a phone interview. The 800 number is their national recruiting number you are not talking to anyone that works for the branch you are applying to. This consists of basic questions of your experience. I passed the phone interview and was then told to wait for another email for a face to face interview. I received an email that appointments were available I called the 800 number to get an interview time only to be told all appointments were full. I received another email a few days later saying appointment times were available so i called the 800 number 30 minutes after I received the email and yet again there were no appointment times available.

    Your experience may be different depending on what location you apply to, but I would suggest not wasting your time. A company is supposed to give a good first impression when hiring. If this is the way they run things I can't imagine actually working for them would be much better.

    Interview

    Initial communication began via an acquaintances recommendation of my employment. I then contacted the manager to schedule an interview. After that I went in to his office for roughly 30 minutes in the middle of the day and received the job the next day. The interview process was really unprofessional and practically improvised. Employees working were very friendly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Avis Budget Group (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume online. Was asked to complete an assessment online immediately after submitting my resume. Received an email 4 days later to contact the recruiting department for a phone interview. Phone interview was fairly simple with basic interview questions to get a sense of a person's work ethic and management style. Was given an appointment immediately during the phone interview to meet a recruiter at the airport. Met with one of the operations managers at Ft Lauderdale airport. Interview went well, asked about my job history, why I was changing careers, why I wanted to work for Avis Budget. At the end of the interview he inquired why I was applying for an RSA position and not a managerial position. Gave me an immediate interview with the District Manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult or unexpected. Fairly typical interview.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was asked if I would like to accept the RSA position, or if I would rather be a manager. I have chosen to pursue management positions within the company.
