I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car (Plattsburgh, NY).
Made me drive about 6 hours all together for two of the four interviews. One included a $15 ferry. Last interview was very unorganized, they didn't know I didn't have much sales experience and didn't like that but all the other three interviewers knew this and passed me on. Drove two and a half hours away from the area where I was interviewing for in a snow storm for the last interview and they were late! They didn't know who I interviewed with. Were very rude and mean. WORST company I have ever interviewed with.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car (Little Rock, AR) in October 2012.
I had two employee referrals with this company.It is good to have atleast one if you actually want to get an interview. I receive a phone interview about two days after I submitted the online resume. The phone interview is very basic and is just making sure you meet the qualifications ( willing to work 50+ hours,accept $31,500 salary,and etc). Then the next interview is with the recruiter in person. My recruiter went over the basic questions and asked about my resume.It lasted maybe 20 minutes and he stated he would contact me with information for my 2nd interview. You will receive all of the information in an e-mail.It will go over the location,and key people you will need to meet with at the Enterprise Rent A Car Location. When you get to the location you will start the "observation " phase of the interview.You pretty much follow a worker around and watch them perform their job for like an hour. This person will have an impact on if you get hired or not . So make sure to be nice to them and ask plenty of questions. The area manager will come and get you for the interview with just them. She asked about items on my resume. Then asked "what was the worst day at work I had ever had","why should we hire you", and that was about it. I receive an e-mail a week later stating they could not hire me because of the answers I provided them with in the interview. I was honest,have never been in any legal trouble,and had the perfect answers to all the questions. My referrals even told me the best way to answer the questions.I found out from one of my referrals that the reason I did not get hired was because I did not seem very excited to be their and I did not smile enough..

Just want to say make sure you make a list of all the questions people listed here and be ready to have examples. Furthermore, be prepared to be interrupted while giving examples and be prompted to do on the go role playing.
I have my last and 3rd in person interview tomorrow with the regional vice president. I am preparing to talk about my career aspirations and prove to them I am serious about joining Enterprise and specifically why.
First time in my life have interviewers easily believed me that I am hard working and dedicated. The real challenge is proving to them I can think on my toes and respond under pressure. Lastly, don't say anything that can be taken negatively. You can't show them that you have ever thought twice about doing anything in life. You can't show them that you aren't an aggressive sales person. They will take simple examples you give and turn them against you. So be prepared!
Have at least 3 examples for all the major questions listed on this website. Have a solid reason for joining enterprise. Make sure you wear a suit to the interview and take a deep breath and be confident. The reason they are testing you so hard is because the interview process is equivalent to training. They know you are fresh out of college with limited work experience and they want to see if you have it in you to analyze your experiences and figure out your flaws and improve them.

I applied online. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car (Denver, CO) in July 2011.
I was called for an interview, the interviewer had a busy schedule and I felt a little rushed to answer the questions quickly rather than have a second to think over my response.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car (Columbus, OH) in June 2011.
I applied online and received a call from a recruiter the next day. The initial interview was held over the phone with the area recruiter. She asked several questions about my background and resume, and asked why I was interested in the position at Enterprise.
The next week I was invited in for a one on one interview with the same recruiter. She asked several behavioral questions and inquired about my sales abilities and experience. I have little sales experience (at least no directly measurable experience) so I did my best to exaggerate my abilities. Overall, the recruiter was cheerful, genuinely interested, albeit incredibly robotic.
After my face-to-face interview I did not hear back from the recruiter for several days, so I called her to figure out where I stood in the interview process. She apologized for not getting back to me and told me that she wanted to set up another interview, this time at a local branch. This interview lasted roughly 3 hours and consisted of a period of observation and two interviews; one with the area manager and the other with the branch manager. I interviewed with the area manager first. He was very nice, was genuinely interested in my responses and asked almost the exact same questions as the recruiter during the previous interview. Then, I met with the area manager. He was not as easy-going and friendly as the area manager, but was still a good guy. He asked the exact same questions as the area manager. Overall, I left the interview thinking that I had the job already.
A few days later, I got an impersonal email from the original recruiter stating that I had not been selected for the position. After responding to her and the branch manager, I was told that I hadn't shown enough desire to succeed in a sales environment. The branch manager ultimately made the call and after thinking back about my time with him, I now realize how much he emphasized a need to succeed and compete.
Having said that, I would suggest EMPHASIZING YOUR DESIRE TO SUCCEED IN SALES, as well as PROVING YOUR SALES ABILITIES in you already have sales experience. I did the best I could to prove that I'm a customer-focused, generally intelligent person, but they didn't want me because I don't have sales experience.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car (New York, NY) in May 2011.
I was invited for an on-campus interview after submitting my resume to Baruch College's Career Development Center. Interviewees were required to complete an online form that I wasn't able to before the interview, so the nice recruiter lady gave me her business card and told me we would schedule a phone interview once the online profile was completed. At the time I was ill-prepared to answer common interview questions, and I'm sure the lack of practice was obvious to the interviewer. Plus the fact that I ran out of breath because I was pacing back and forth during the phone interview was probably not the best impression from someone applying for a managerial role.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car (Charlotte, NC) in February 2011.
I applied on line for the Management Training program. This involved taking a skills test online. I then received an email within three days from a recruiter inviting me to take part in a phone interview with her. This first interview was short, under five minutes, and she verified that I understood what the job entailed. She informed me she would pass me onto the next round.
Round two consisted of a face to face interview at the regional office. This interview was about an hour long and the interviewer asked tough questions about sales ability, customer service skills, leadership skills, and my professional goals. Questions also included why I wanted to work for Enterprise, and the types of things that motivate me. It's key that you say you love to be judged based on performance and you're competitive and outgoing.
At this point, I moved to the third round, which was a visit to a local branch. Here, I observed the branch employees and talked to them for an hour about their jobs. The second hour involved an interview with the branch manager and the area manager. This interview felt informal and lasted about 15 minutes. I was then passed onto the fourth round.
The final round was an interview with the regional vice president. He asked questions that I has already answered in previous rounds. After this round, I received an email about consenting to a background and credit check. One day later I was offered the job and accepted.
It's crucial you have good questions for each interviewer, that you smile, and have an air of confidence about you the entire time. That's what they're looking for.
- Why do you want to work for Enterprise at this point in your career? (I was changing careers) 3 Answers
There is no room for negotiation. They tell you during the first round interview that the salary is fixed at $31,500 plus benefits, but you have the ability to rise through the ranks quickly if you perform.

This was a total and complete waste of my time. They have a 4 or 5 stage interview process and they takes WEEKS to call you back in for the next interview. It was absolutely ridiculous how cheap and expendable they made me feel, as if my time was worth nothing.
