Enterprise Rent A Car Management Trainee Interview

Enterprise Rent A Car Management Trainee

The process took 3 days - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in April 2011.

Interview Details – They contact you after a few days of filling out the application, usually thru email. Eventually you move onto a phone interview, then an in person interview. I didn't make it past the phone interview, and I felt that I did it well. Although when I asked the recruiter, it seems they base it off of your resume experience mostly.

Interview Question – Explain a situation when your coworker disagreed w/ you and what you did to change their mind.   Answer Question

The process took a day - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in April 2011.

Interview Details – 1/ If a customer walked into Enterprise and you did not have their car, what would you do?

I was asked a ton of questions regarding past sales experience and meeting sales goals. Be prepared to give specific quantifiable examples of achieved sales goals and how you met them!!!!!! It seems as if they really care to find how you made a difference to the organization, how you added value. Be prepared to answer!

Enterprise Rent A Car Management Trainee Interview

Enterprise Rent A Car Management Trainee

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in February 2011.

Interview Details – The interview was almost exactly as it has been described on this site. Almost all the questions are sales-driven. The very first question was "tell me about a time you had to deal with an angry customer." Overall it was a very straight-forward, down to business interview. I tried the best I could to initiate some small talk and conversation, but it was hard to do.
The job posting said it's for all college graduates, no matter what degree you have. I recently graduated with a business degree from a major institution. Even though I know I am very qualified for the position, since I did not have any sales experience, it seemed like she basically wrote me off right from the get-go.

The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in March 2011.

Interview Details – I first applied with enterprise in february and after a month a recruiter finally contacted me. I then had a phone interview with questions such as describe your sales experience and why do you want to work for enterprise. After that I was invited to an interview at their corporate office, which for me was a three hour drive one way, even though I was applying for a position in my local area. At the interview the recruiter was very nice and informational about the company. Questions asked included, name an ambious goal you had in the past, describe a time you had to overcome an objection of someone else, name a time when you missed a deadline, what strengths/weakness do you bring to the sale position, and what do you know about the company( make sure to do your research ahead of time)'/why do you want to work for enterprise. The recruiter was very upfront about this being a sales position and customer service. After about a week, I was emailed and said that the company was pursuing other canidates for the position.

Very Easy Interview

Enterprise Rent A Car Management Trainee Interview

Enterprise Rent A Car Management Trainee

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in February 2011.

Interview Details – Very easy going and causal interview. They talk about learning each step of their company from the ground up. "Working 80 hours a week is the new 40." I think they are a pyramid company where few people can scratch their way past washing cars... and working 80 hour weeks... Nice people in the interview though.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in five years?   Answer Question

Management Trainee Enterprise-Rent-A-Car Interview

Management Trainee Enterprise-Rent-A-Car
Stirling, Scotland (UK)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in July 2010.

Interview Details – After doing an online application I recieved an e mail saying that there was no current vacancies available in Scotland at the current time. A month later I recieved an e mail asking if i was still interested in the position and when i showed interest they gave me the option of a telephone or a face to face interview. I chose the face to face interview as I feel more comfortable in this situation than on the phone. The questions at this stage were mainly about points on my CV and my work experience, with the concentration being largely on customer service and sales experience. The interview went well as I had a experience in both these areas and the person doing the interview was friendly and of a similair age to me which made the experience a lot more relaxing.

Interview Question – Tell me about your sales/customer service experience.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I always had my doubts about this job because of all the bad reviews the company has had. This along with the interest they took in my sales experience put me off going to the next stage. I had already recieved two more interview offers at the same time as this and decided I would concentrate more on those.
