    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

    Interview

    Applied online for a opening position, come to find out they are constantly hiring for Sales Manager Trainees. I've heard it was a great training program and something you can really start off learning about management. I had a quick phone interview, then 3 in-person interviews all relatively quickly. The second interview also included an hour of shadowing around a local branch getting a feel for it. The last interview was with the district manager, which was overall a good experience. Interestingly they don't share things from each interview until the whole process is completed. So you end up answering a lot of the same basic interview questions more than once. I quickly noticed that most people don't stick around this job that often, and most people give it a little bit of time and move on to a career they actually want with the experience they gain from enterprise. The branches were filled with young people fresh out of college, so I assumed the turn-over rate must be high. They offered me the position, but declined it for several reasons. The pay isn't that great, its ends up being only around $35K because your working 48 a week on a hourly wage. I'd have no little to no social life, and couldn't see myself renting cars everyday to only put the position on my resume. Overall great interviewing process, definitely helped me learn more about the company. People were super friendly and was overall a good experience. Definitely recommend people at least applying and going to the interviews for the experience.

    Reasons for Declining

    I had potential other offers, and was still interviewing with other larger companies that would be offering more salary. Felt rushed through the process like a conveyer belt, and couldn't see myself renting cars.

    Interview

    They first called me and gave me some details about the position and asked me why I had left my previous job. Then they asked to me to come to their corporate office for an interview. After the interview they said they would contact me in a week to possibly set up two more interviews with local managers. During the interview they asked about the following: a time I was in a leadership role, a time I sold something to someone that wasn't interested and what objections did I overcome, and what methods do I use to measure my performance?

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car (Virginia Beach, VA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Rigorous Interview process as you proceed up the ladder beyond branch manager. You need to know your personal sales statistics and those that you affect or can change very thoroughly. Hiring managers know what they are looking for and most likely have a strong opinion of you prior to your interview. Projecting confidence and being well versed in the business language is a must.

    Interview Questions

    • Provide an example of a time when you tried to achieve a target goal and missed it. What caused you to miss it? What were your action steps to meet the goal? Did you alter those action steps to meet the goal? What did you specifically change? What were the results?   Answer Question
